As one of the lauded few to be positioned along prestigious Laurel Avenue, this two-level architectural classic brings sophistication and style to one of Brisbane’s most highly acclaimed riverside addresses. Set back from the street with its driveway flanked by two of the majestic specimens after which the street is named, the property offers an immediate sense of establishment and privacy.
The house itself was designed by local architect Andrew Wiley, whose distinctive style of clean, angular lines, open plan living spaces and a proliferation of glass all feature prominently throughout. The pool also plays a central role, with the elongated design bringing water views to all main living areas of the home. Surrounded by terracotta paving and easy care gardens, the space is ideal for entertaining. There is even a standalone pool house that currently has power and a water line run to it, making it easy to renovate and develop further.
Inside, the lounge room boasts an impressive dual height ceiling complete with clerestory windows (yet another hallmark of an Andrew Wiley design). This leads through to a series of more casual areas which brings a versatility and a great separation of space to the overall floor plan. The impressively proportioned kitchen is positioned close by, with the truly expansive layout able to incorporate a large island bench or a breakfast table if so desired. Similarly impressive dimensions are apparent in the large laundry which features a sewing desk and plentiful cabinetry. A full bathroom and sauna have been positioned just nearby, with the house also listing a home office, a wine cellar and a dual car garage with additional storage.
As to bedrooms, the master suite is located on the ground floor, with its grand ensuite (with spa bath) almost rivalling the bedroom in size. Upstairs, an additional two bedrooms share the three-way bathroom, while a fourth bedroom can be utilised as a media room or play room thanks to its position and layout.
Outside, the entire 607m² has been fully fenced and comprehensively designed for low maintenance privacy. This also brings excellent lock-up-and-leave capabilities to the property which is just 6km from the CBD.
Also located within easy walking distance of shops, cinemas, restaurants and public transport, the property offers great access to all amenities, making this home an enduringly astute investment.
