With an endearing street appeal, a meticulously maintained landscape and a premium northern suburb setting, the exceptional redesign, private retreat-inspired outdoor living areas and swoon-worthy interiors of this exceptional home will ground the soul and enrich the senses. Step inside to impeccable detail and luxurious finishes, with a spectacular double-height living space, dark-washed hardwood and polished concrete floors, uncompromised kitchen and bathroom style inclusions and bespoke lighting features. Highlights include fully automated air-conditioning and security, an enormous PV solar system and proximity to elite private schools, parklands and Westfield Chermside.
Seamlessly merging traditional with contemporary, the owners envisioned an abode that would provide for and nurture, incorporating sumptuous marble-like stone surfaces and penny mosaic tiles, high-quality fittings and family gathering areas awash with natural light.
Bedrooms are spacious and dreamy, there are extraordinary levels of storage, upscale cabinetry and period-style tapware, lockable plantation shutters in white and an enclosed, under-stair wine room. Utilising the gentle fall of this generous 607 sqm allotment, an impressive, 2017-completed extension and renovation has transformed this modest home, resulting in a look and feel that will captivate and inspire.
From the front landing, step into a welcoming entrance foyer with a chandelier above. The original section of this residence is home to four stylish, built-in bedrooms including the elegant domain of the master suite, a lavishly appointed family bathroom and a large sitting room or media lounge.
The master retains smooth timber floors while the children’s or guest bedrooms have plush, charcoal grey carpets. With floor-to-ceiling porcelain wall tiles reminiscent of marble, walk-in showers, pedestal basins on stands, convenient niches and a style that exudes pure opulence, this bathroom and the ensuite will not disappoint.
Ahead lies the contemporary part of this exquisite home, with light and extraordinary volume on display. Architectural louvres are placed up high and dual sets of disappearing stacker doors blur the line between inside and out. As you descend into this enormous open plan living, dining and kitchen space, be greeted by a striking, rectangular crystal pendant above the kitchen’s island, polished concrete floors, a butler’s pantry with coffee nook and a connection to the Zen-like gardens that you’ll be immediately drawn to.
There are deep, marble-look stone countertop surfaces with integrated sinks, a clever slide-out pantry near the exclusive, Neil Perry-inspired gas cooktop and oven and a second pantry with upper and lower-level doors. Featured also is a clear glass splashback, integrated Miele dishwasher and Qasair rangehood, numerous banks of soft-closing drawers and an extra-large side-by-side fridge/freezer recess.
An outdoor kitchen under the soaring ceiling height of an expansive terrace features the same smooth stone finish and incorporates a built-in barbeque, drinks fridge space and elevated, bar-style seating. A sun deck sits alongside the stands of bamboo, mature shrubs and tropical plantings. This perfectly executed, low-maintenance landscape offers total seclusion from neighbouring properties.
Garaging is securely provided for two cars. Either side of the home is meticulously neat, with stone and concrete pathways leading from the front to back and from the stylish laundry to the building’s undercroft. With vast areas of lockable storage, drying court, services corridor and two powder rooms on the ground floor, all considerations have been given to convenience and functionality. A huge 10.5 kW solar system with 35 panels provides extraordinary efficiency, there is four-camera monitoring and recording and a video intercom positioned at the front gate.
This beautiful, tree-lined street is quiet, conducive to family living and is amongst other quality residences. Near public transport, the Brisbane Airport, suburban green spaces of Boyd and Kalinga Parks and the bikeways of Kedron Brook, this area, at under 10km from the CBD, presents an outstanding lifestyle and an unrivalled array of amenities.
Catchment area schools are Nundah State School and Wavell State High, with the exclusive private schools of Mary Mackillop College and St. Joseph’s Nudgee College a short drive away.
