Set into the hillside in one of St. Lucia’s finest locales, with the prized Ironside State School and University of Queensland a 10 minute walk away, this sophisticated residence offers a supremely generous layout, with versatile study, media and living spaces to accommodate large families and busy lifestyles. Beautifully landscaped and ideally private with on-trend design features and stylish finishes, the home boasts an alfresco entertainment terrace with integrated BBQ, luxurious master suite with balcony overlooking the pool, a sleek kitchen with dual ovens and butler’s pantry, and extensive storage.
Immaculate and appealing with its contemporary, split-level design, the executive style of this established residence occupies a wide, 607m2 allotment in a quiet, tree-lined and highly desirable avenues location that is just moments from golf courses and exemplary, multi-age private and state schooling options.
The often-frequented family living and full-width entertaining areas take advantage of the site and its preferred north to rear orientation. Enabling passively warmed interiors and a welcoming, comfortable outdoor environment during winter, the home’s considered layout also delivers shaded, all-weather poolside recreation and dining spaces from which to enjoy Brisbane’s summers.
With enough room for casual lounge and large table seating, host family gatherings and entertain in absolute style with the convenience of a custom designed, fully equipped outdoor kitchen to prepare, barbecue and serve food and drinks to your guests.
Dressed in an in vogue, monochromatic theme that flows from inside to out, the home presents with uniformly tiled porcelain surfaces in highly polished and complementary matt finishes, vivid white plantation shutters to all rooms and minimalist white cabinetry detailing with hardwearing, engineered stone benchtops.
The kitchen features high-end Miele and Asko appliances including a steam and combination oven, two dishwashers and an induction cooktop with single gas burner. Walk around into the open butler’s pantry where there is an abundance of storage combined with must-have benchtop space for the more frequently used small appliances and espresso machine. A clear window splashback allows plenty of natural light to fill the food preparation and cooking areas.
Designed with functionality in mind, the residence capably accommodates all in style, without compromise. Students of different ages will find the spacious bedrooms with built-in desks invaluable, with one of the larger rooms potentially posing as a generously sized rumpus or games room, in addition to the dedicated media lounge. An integrated study nook near the ground level living areas is perfect for use by adults working from home, or to remain connected to younger children doing their homework while you prepare meals.
In addition to the four bedrooms on the upper level, all of which have extensive robe storage, the master suite is luxuriously oversized and shares the beautiful north aspect, making its glass edged balcony the spot to sit with a morning coffee before starting the day. An enormous walk-in-robe and spa inspired ensuite with freestanding oval bath complete this restful, parents only retreat.
Busy families will love the split bathroom layout with separate powder room, making the weekday before school rush a little easier to navigate, and with a chute to send clothes straight down to the laundry at the end of the day, the bathroom will remain tidy. Convenient bathroom amenities on the ground floor can also be accessed via the laundry door, ideal for pool users.
With ducted, zoned air-conditioning, fully fenced surrounds and established, easy care gardens, the property is family ready, offering secure outdoor places for younger children and pets to play safely, either on the level lawn or upon the gated driveway. Garaging is provided for two cars, with off-street parking available for older teens with their own cars.
At only 6km from the centre of Brisbane, the city commute will be a quick one, leaving more time for an early tee-off at the nearby St. Lucia Golf Links or a walk or run along the University’s public use trail that traces the river’s edge along Sir William MacGregor Drive. Less than 5 minutes from St. Peter’s Lutheran College and Indooroopilly State High School, the in-demand location is central to Toowong Village and the vast array of retail and dining destinations available at Indooroopilly Shopping Centre.
