49 Wilkins Street West, FAIRFIELD
49 Wilkins Street West, Fairfield
This stunning, renovated residence has the drama and jaw-dropping moments of a lovingly restored, period home mixed with a sensitive, modern extension and clever melding of the old and the new. As one of the highest locations in the suburb, this Fairfield home yields City glimpses and a view of the Green Bridge and Mount Coot-tha across the rooftops and leafy vistas.
From the moment you open the front gate, there is an oasis to be found in the carefully curated yet low-maintenance garden complete with goldfish pond and pear tree. This triple-gable home has all the hallmarks of a 90-year-old Queenslander cottage with an updated paint scheme and great care taken to ensure that it endures for another century or more.

A leadlight porthole window in the entryway starts your journey into the living and lounging area with VJ walls and an original Pedestal Arch visually separating the generous dining room with views out to the deck and beyond. The newly renovated kitchen has stainless steel appliances, as well as tasteful charcoal and white tones which match the warehouse-style black frames of the giant sliding doors leading outside to a good-size deck with insulated roof for an avid entertainer.
The king-sized master bedroom has a walk-in robe with loads of space to hang, fold and store your clothing and extra storage space to spare. The newly renovated bathroom is perfect for the whole family with a large, functional shower and lots of storage in the shaving cabinet with inbuilt make-up lights… and don't miss the skylight while you stand in the shower and watch the stars at night!
Two additional bedrooms share access to a sunroom which could function as a playroom, library or additional living space for the kids to have their own space away from the main living area. It could also convert easily to an extra bedroom with a small change to the floor plan.
Downstairs is a full-sized, modern laundry and additional toilet as well as a studio or home office space along with a legal-height area under the house where you can build in and double the floorplan! Without any need to renovate immediately, it is water tight and a functional space for a teenager's retreat or could be converted to a separate apartment (STCA) to unlock the earning potential of dual living.
