The Views from Valentia
Something about 24 Valentia Street in Mansfield will capture your heart. Will it be the distinctly Mediterranean-flavoured outdoor areas, complete with exposed brick features, vegetable gardens and crystal-clear swimming pool? Or could it be the homely interiors, with their lush timber floors flooded with natural light? Our guess is it will be the stunning 180-degree views of the surrounding suburb and the hills beyond… with the elevated outlook at 24 Valentia Street, you really do feel on top of the world.
This property offers much more than perfect optics and undeniable charm, and will appeal to families, investors, or young professionals alike. The upstairs level is where you will find three ample bedrooms and a study, all with ceiling fans, built-in-robes and timber blinds. The main bathroom is here too and comes with a separate shower and bathtub.
In the living area the timber floors are complemented by timber bi-fold doors to the front balcony and also to the large deck on the side of the house, overlooking the swimming pool. When open, these doors capture the breeze and gently tunnel it through the house, providing natural respite on hot summer days.
The kitchen is an entertainers delight, with a five-plate gas burner cook top, rangehood, AEG oven and grill and plenty of cupboard space. There is a double sink and space for a dishwasher, just to make life that little bit easier!
Head down the internal staircase from the upper level, and you will find a spacious downstairs area that adds a whole extra dimension to this property. A utility room offers endless opportunities, and there is a tiled lounge that would make an ideal entertainment hideaway. A second bathroom and a large laundry add to the functionality of the lower level, as does the under-stair storage and the double garage.
The landscaped gardens are clear evidence of a labour of love, with the vegetable gardens overflowing with bountiful green produce. Perfectly kept hedges, well-manicured lawns and an abundance of native trees are further evidence of the work and thought that has gone into this yard. The feature piece though would have to be the swimming pool, whose inviting blue waters are surrounded by sandstone tiles, providing the spacious back-yard with a resort-like atmosphere.
This feeling is completed by numerous palm trees, timber decking and the shaded area underneath the deck.
As with all Mansfield properties convenience is a major drawcard. Brisbane city is a quick 20-minute drive away, and shopping centres such as Westfield Garden City and Wishart Shopping Village are just around the corner. Add to that a plethora of high quality schools such as Mansfield State High, Wishart State School and Brisbane Adventist College, and it’s easy to see why this is such a sought-after suburb.
We recommend you be quick to register your interest because this house, with these views, in this area will not be around for very long!
