Grey granite, gleaming steel, frosted glass, marble and white wood create quality living spaces in this distinctive residence. Combining the advantages of resort-style living with privacy and personal space, the villa has its own impressive entry. The master bedroom and parents’ retreat has 6m ceilings, a walk in robe and even a private bedroom balcony with some city views. The spacious ensuite has double vanities, shower and a roomy tub for a long hot soak. Of the 2 remaining bedrooms, one has river views and external electric blinds, and the other could be used as an office. A second bathroom services both bedrooms, while a washroom with granite features is conveniently located downstairs.
The lounge/dining/living area, with its uncluttered lines, high ceilings, strategic lighting and open spaces, flows to an outdoor entertaining area. Electric blinds control shade and light. Large, frosted glass sliding doors can screen off the kitchen from the living space if caterers are at work, or hide preparation areas when hosting a dinner party. The kitchen design certainly makes a cook’s life easy with Smeg stainless steel microwave and dishwasher, double sink, garbage disposal, water purifier, plenty of cupboards, lighting where it’s needed and easy-care surfaces. There is a separate laundry/ironing room with Fisher and Paykel dryer, double tubs, benches and large storage cupboards. The villa has reverse cycle air-conditioning ducted to both levels and the upper level has wool carpets throughout. There is basement parking for 2 cars with remote door operation, private lockable basement storage, an intercom and 24-hour security. It’s just a 500m stroll to the eateries of James Street and The Valley, shops and transport are close by and the city is just 2km away. You can choose to relax in a private outdoor area with a tranquil water feature, river views and built-in BBQ, or take advantage of superb facilities, including a 25m heated, riverside swimming pool and a modern, full gymnasium with the comforts of TV, stereo sound, air-conditioning and a coffee machine. Or sit for a while on manicured lawns that you don’t have to mow, in the shade of a tree you don’t have to trim, and watch the river float by. Life doesn’t get much better than this!
