On a superbly elevated river’s bend that has remained flood-free through past events, this breathtakingly beautiful Queenslander upon 1543m2 of private, manicured gardens presents as one of Brisbane’s finest riverfront properties. Renovated to perfection whilst staying true to its character, there are two levels of sophisticated living and entertaining spaces and expansive decks that enable glorious, never to be compromised views. This grand, family home features a temperature-controlled wine room, Miele and V-ZUG appointed kitchen with scullery, mudroom and abundant storage, a riverside master suite and a tiled inground pool.
An exceptionally inviting home that is a joy to discover and so easy to live in, the traditional features of this 1930s’ built dwelling effortlessly blend with its more recent design updates and high-end inclusions. Meticulously maintained, rich timber floors, lofty VJ lined ceilings, French doors and sash windows retain the charm of the past, with contemporary plantation shutters, stone-topped cabinetry surfaces, on-trend tiles and ultra-modern fittings integrating harmoniously. Peaceful, luxurious and undeniably prestigious, this will be a home that your family will cherish for years to come.
At the end of a shared driveway and hidden from street view, the seclusion and exclusivity of this absolute riverfront location unfold as you approach the immaculate, multi-gabled Queenslander. A few steps lead onto a wide, two-sided verandah and east-facing breakfast terrace, with the home’s central hallway directing toward the spectacular rear entertaining deck and its sweeping river outlook.
A vantage point to treasure, this extraordinary position captures clear views across the river to the verdant expanses of Sir John Chandler Park and the Indooroopilly Golf Club and allows you to sit back and watch watercraft and rowers navigating both the Canoe and Long Pocket reaches. With high ceilings, fans and beautifully maintained finishes, this deck offers space for an outdoor lounge and a large dining setting and allows you to keep your eye on children swimming in the pool below.
Living and dining areas are generous, elegantly styled and filled with natural light. The formal lounge is a grand, double-sized room with designer drum pendant lights and two upholstered window seats, with doors to separate from the more family-oriented spaces. With decorative, timber-framed clear glass windows on three sides and the inclusion of wide-opening bifold doors, the dining, casual meals and carefree seating areas seamlessly connect with the outdoors.
Cooks will delight at the functionality and space to be found within the kitchen and scullery, with high-performing appliances including a Miele multi-function oven and coffee machine, V-ZUG steam oven and induction cooktop and an AEG dishwasher. There is a waterfall-edged island, a small appliance hub and tea and coffee making zone, extensive benchtop space, pantry and drawer storage and a walk-through into the similarly styled, two-way laundry with farmhouse sink, under bench appliance recesses and mudroom.
Set in behind glass doors, a temperature-controlled wine cellaring room has been designed to hold at least 1000 bottles. A striking addition to your entertaining repertoire, select a special bottle or two to accompany dinner with friends and for the celebration of family milestones.
There are two bedrooms on the entrance level, each facing the front verandah and a built-in office or craft room situated towards the rear of the home that has views along the river towards Tennyson. With two further, king-sized bedrooms on the ground floor together with two very large, carpeted multi-purpose rooms currently utilised as bedrooms, these versatile spaces offer adaptable accommodation and office spaces that can be tailored to suit your family’s needs.
The master suite is a luxurious retreat that opens directly onto a second covered deck, as does the adjoining bedroom. With the same enormous dimensions as the deck above, this terrace offers a place to unwind, provides an undercover games area for the kids to play on and presents easy access to the pool for you to enjoy a morning swim. The master bedroom has a large walk-in dressing room and a stylishly renovated ensuite.
All bathrooms feature uniformly detailed tiled finishes, fixtures and fittings. The upstairs bathroom has a luxuriously deep, oval freestanding bath and walk-in shower, with twin basins incorporated into the vanity design of the two ground-floor bathrooms. Air-conditioning has been installed throughout the home for maximum comfort, whilst underneath the house is a vast, concreted storage area with lockable rooms.
Parking for two vehicles in tandem is provided in a semi-enclosed carport, with an entrance via a remote-controlled driveway gate. Access to the property’s services is easy, with a wide walkway on one side and a child-friendly lawn on the other. The size of the allotment will allow for an additional garage building and turnaround area to be built (STCA) at the front of the home, if desired.
