Written by The ReReport

The open plan chef’s kitchen flows into the dining and living space — perfect for young families and entertainers.

IT’S been billed as “the perfect family home” and has a coveted school thrown in as a bonus that will save thousands for young, upwardly-mobile families.
Owned by a renowned architecture photographer, this five bedroom, two bathroom, three car space home sits in a Brisbane bluechip neighbourhood where queues have been known to form each February as families outside the catchment try to secure a rarely available spot in the school.

Room to grow in this home.

Indoor-outdoor flow.

Key to the allure of the Queenslander at 7 Joynt Street, Hamilton is the fact that it’s in the Ascot State School catchment — where hundreds of the Brisbane high net worth families choose to let their children start their education journey.
The school is highly resourced, well funded and heavily supported by families living in the area — saving thousands in private primary school fees for hundreds of families.

A cubby house sits in the green garden.

The home has a price guide of $1,425,000 to $1,475,000.

Most of the Ascot State students move on to private high schools including St Joseph’s Nudgee College which has school buses to the area and St Margaret’s which is on the edge of the suburb itself.
Agent Lisa Pearse-Sargeant of Ray White Ascot, who is marketing the property with Amanda Butler of Butler+Co Estate Agents, said the school zone has been a topic of conversation with most people inspecting the home.

It has five bedrooms, two bathrooms and space for three cars.

The master has an ensuite.

“It is in the Ascot school zone and close to buses for private schools. Everyone who has looked has asked about schools and bus access,” she told The Courier-Mail.
The home has an open plan chef’s kitchen flowing into the living and dining area, which also overlooks a grassy playzone and a private inground salt water swimming pool.

The home is airconditioned and also has fans.

The Queenslander has a classic feel.

Even better, the property also has a “cute cubbyhouse” that’s sure to please little ones.
“It’s a nice location,” Ms Pearse-Sargeant said, near the playground, Crosby Park and Albion Dog Park.”
The home is open for inspections for half an hour on Saturday (October 27) from 10am-10.30am and from 1pm-1.30pm.
