The Queenslander verandah is a very special space.
It’s the perfect spot to sit and enjoy our beautiful mild weather, to catch up with friends, to savour some quiet time, read a book and sip tea!
I sat on a ‘before’ version of a Queenslander verandah yesterday, with the ‘almost’ new owner of one. She takes ownership of a home, that I have just sold to her, early next week. It has a closed in verandah just waiting to be restored to it’s former glory.
At the pre settlement inspection, the owner and I sat at the open front door, on the closed in verandah, catching a beautiful afternoon breeze, scheming her new home’s transformation.
I can envisage the ‘after’ looking very similar to the image above! The aluminium sliding windows (that look like they were previously installed to close in the verandah in the 1970’s, with their orange frosted glass!) will be removed and a beautiful balustrade will replace them.
I love this balustrade!
Maybe some lattice will add some privacy?
Or some striking black and white blinds?
With the pretty bay window all spruced up to finish it all off.
Don’t think Batwing Doors weren’t discussed! #love
Once opened up, the original verandah French doors and transoms will take centre stage.
What’s not to love about the Queensland verandah?
Except maybe the summer mozzies!
