Auction Location: On-Site
Mid-century nostalgia, parkland serenity, outstanding opportunity. Situated high above the river’s edge and unaffected by February’s flooding, this architect designed, 1960s built modernist home is right on trend, offering stylish, move-in ready comfort with the potential for further renovation or redevelopment (STCA). Set at the end of an ultra-quiet cul-de-sac, with direct, shaded reserve and unique, sandy beach access for walking, playing with the kids or launching a kayak, the picturesque location is priceless. The versatile residence features captivating indoor-outdoor living spaces and a twin-lane, near 20 metre lap pool.
Private and exclusive, family-friendly finds such as this are rare, and this peaceful, sought-after neighbourhood with much-loved home offers a lifestyle of laid-back simplicity that is often craved, in a form that functions effortlessly.
Whether you intend to retain, remodel or remove entirely and rebuild, the irresistible qualities of this desirable address are the sweeping outlooks across the adjoining acres of Paringa Place Park and what may possibly be the most scenic stretch of the Brisbane River.
With both upper and ground floor living and accommodation areas, an elevated, full-width, river facing entertaining deck and a choice of covered terraces and aspects for quiet relaxation, weekend drinks or poolside games, the current layout is sure to adapt to individual needs.
Capturing the flair and essence of mid-century design that’s seeing a resurgence in popularity, the bright, fresh and airy interiors engage the senses, with an abundance of light pouring in through enormous, transparent glass panes and sliding openings. Adding to the volume, the open spaces of the upper level feature polished hardwood timber floors, a gentle, central ceiling pitch with angled infills to divide rooms, and soft, recessed lighting emanating behind pelmet boxes.
Custom-built cabinetry and built-in robes have been installed extensively throughout the residence to further complement the existing storage capabilities, while renovation updates have seen both bathrooms and the laundry receive a modern refresh; the all-white kitchen with large servery featuring a Blanco gas stove and Miele dishwasher.
There are two bedrooms upstairs and two down, all are comfortably queen-sized and set to suit a range of family living styles. For those with older teenagers who are seeking their own space, the ground level offers the possibility for self-contained dual-living.
From wherever you are within the fully air-conditioned home, there are restful pool, parkland and river vistas to enjoy, with the lilly pilly edged pool enclosure and established, fully fenced and pet friendly garden landscape offering plenty of privacy from neighbouring properties. Situated separately at the front of the allotment, an oversized double garage provides welcome additional storage and can even potentially fit up to 4 small cars, if needed.
Riverside Yeronga’s appeal lies in its quiet streets with limited vehicle traffic and its proximity to the city and South Bank, with local schools and cafés, parks, sports fields and the Queensland Tennis Centre nearby. Join into the River Loop bikeway at the end of the street for an easy commute, with the Brisbane Corso section offering a flat, 10 minute ride, via the Eleanor Schonell Bridge, directly to the University of Queensland.
