Bask in the timeless style and beauty of a flood free Modern Classic, with this executive riverfront abode that delivers relaxed family living and effortless entertainment options amidst elegantly appointed, private surrounds. Designed to honour the finest features of Mediterranean architecture and style, the home displays a strong connection with the outdoors, with a floorplan that effortlessly interacts with the surrounding alfresco spaces, water views and formal gardens.
The quality of the build is also on display throughout, with hardwood floors on the upper level made from recycled timber reclaimed from a Government building over a Century old and parquetry floors in the main living room created from recycled and re-milled Blackbutt. These finishes of course work in with other quality features including Syrian Cedar joinery, solid Tasmanian Oak cabinetry and traditional terracotta roof tiles.
The entry is a suitably fitting affair with a formal foyer extending through to a dual level void where a staircase with handmade iron balustrading connects two spacious levels. A versatile configuration of rooms brings superior liveability to the ground floor with a casual space for living and dining surrounding the kitchen and then a secondary zone positioned just outside, within the expansive, porticoed terrace. Together, the two spaces bring superlative entertainment options, especially when the adjacent pool zone and extensive granite-topped kitchen are incorporated. A third living option comes in the form of the impressive ‘Great Room’, where an open fireplace and elegant finishes lends the space to more sedentary pursuits such as reading, music or as a media centre.
Upstairs, three large bedrooms all have water views, along with the use of a picturesque sitting room. The master suite also benefits from a walk-in wardrobe, private ensuite and access to a privatised section of balcony which is ideal for use as an alfresco lounge or workout area. A fourth bedroom (and third full bathroom), is positioned downstairs while the option of a separate guest suite can be found next to the pool in a free-standing pavilion that would also work well as a dedicated gym or home office. There is a study, air-conditioning, plentiful storage and a dual car garage with additional off-street parking for other vehicles.
The surrounding 1454m2 of grounds further support the Mediterranean feel with the formally designed, Italianate landscaping incorporating neat hedging, walled gardens and geographically typical plantings. The 26m river frontage is well maintained and provides easy access to the water.
A picture-perfect residence of Mediterranean-inspired beauty, this property is just 15 minutes from the CBD and within minutes of schools, shops and public transport. A testament to enduring quality and a statement of timeless style, this is a private riverfront haven designed to endure.
