Option 1-Refurbish the Existing House Option 2-Demolish and Build 1 or 2 Luxury Homes
Built far out into the riparian on two large lots totalling 908m2, this absolute riverfront residence feels at one with its waterfront locale; its contemporary layout taking full advantage of the 180 degree view encompassing river, park and a full city panorama, while its superlative architectural design delivers an outstanding base from which to realise your own dream home.
Having been created by award-winning, building designer Robin Payne just seven years ago, all the intrinsic components of a great build are already present in the 650m2 house, with a truly insightful layout that not only flows beautifully, but really works to take full advantage of the views, while maximizing privacy. Furthermore, the design is geared to fully enjoy the Queensland lifestyle, with largely open plan spaces running fluidly between indoors and out.
The fixed features are also ideal, with high ceilings, sprawling proportions and a range of architectural flourishes that include glass balustrading on the stairs, a central light well garden and a double height foyer that is really set to impress. And then there is the pool, a veritable rarity as it enjoys both generous proportions of some 12m, along with a highly prized position settled quite happily far out into the riparian. All this residence needs therefore, is a simple cosmetic re-fit to bring the fittings and finishes up to the standard of the rest of the build. These aesthetic changes will also allow new owners to add their own flair and personality – with all of the hard work already done.
Thanks to the large lot size, not only are the dimensions of each room generously proportioned, but the variety of spaces are also numerous. A casual living and dining zone (complete with fireplace) occupies much of the home’s lower level, with more intimate rooms for formal living along with media/games pursuits. There is a fifth, ensuited bedroom by the entrance (therefore ideal as a home office), along with a three car garage and extra storage. The upper level brings a choice of bedroom options with four large rooms all boasting walk-in wardrobes and sharing two walk-through ensuites. Two of the rooms boast balcony access and full river views, giving multiple options for creating a dream master suite. Like the ground floor, this secondary level is characterized by high ceilings and plentiful natural light thanks largely to glass-sided breezeways which flank the internal garden. Outside, the impressive 908m2 land size is fully fenced, has a 20m frontage and the possibility of installing a pontoon.
With this property, all the hard work has already been done, making it a simple process to add your own finishes in order to achieve a uniquely personal, sprawling, riverfront family home on two large lots with a pool and superb floor plan for enjoying those outstanding views.
