For the first time in nearly forty years, Riverlea, an expansive 1303m2 absolute riverfront property with pontoon is being brought to market, bringing with it the rare opportunity to gain a foothold within this highly prized locale. Indeed, properties within this enclave have always been tightly held, due to the outstanding river views and close proximity to all major amenities with Indooroopilly Shoppingtown in walking distance and St Joseph’s Nudgee Junior College just next door. Furthermore, Riverlea is able to offer the rare advantage of a 20m frontage complete with a 12m pontoon and deep water mooring.
Due to its prominent position, this property also enjoys an uninterrupted, 180 degree vista spanning from the Walter Taylor Bridge through to Fig Tree Pocket which is especially arresting at night when the lights of the bridge and surrounding homes illuminate the water. The house is ideally orientated to make the most of these views and having been newly painted and refreshed, it is ready to move straight in. However, there is certainly scope to add further value, with the property making an ideal candidate for those wishing to renovate or extend.
Built around an enclosed courtyard, the home occupies what are essentially three wings, maximizing privacy and liveability for the four bedrooms and three full bathrooms. This is especially so of the main bedroom which has an ensuite and full river views. The floorplan also brings separation between the formal and casual living areas, with the more relaxed zone ideal for all the family with its direct access to the courtyard, the kitchen, the mezzanine playroom/study and two children’s bedrooms. This leaves the formal rooms free to take prime position as the home’s centre point, creating both an elegant introduction to the house and a superb way to view the stunning river panorama. As the space flows directly onto the generously proportioned balcony, it further encourages an alfresco vibe that really reinforces the connection to the river beyond. There is also a study, a dual car garage and plentiful storage throughout the home. Outside, the battleaxe-shaped block brings with it total privacy from the street, while leaving plentiful space at the rear to enjoy the pool, spa and the terraced lawn which leads down to the water’s edge.
Thanks to its highly prized locale, absolute riverfront position, views, pontoon and generous land size, Riverlea makes for the perfect property to invest in, live in and enjoy both now and into the future.
