As one of just 8 double-storey villas, this luxury residence of 317m2 caters to a family who wants the benefits of inner-city living without sacrificing the living space of a home. The large lounge and dining room on the upper level feature a high ceiling adorned by a chandelier, mirror treatment that accentuates the sense of light and space, and a fireplace. In a visually engaging split-level design, the master bedroom, family room and kitchen are slightly elevated. The streamlined kitchen has black granite benchtops, the warmth of timber cupboards, stainless steel Miele appliances (including dishwasher and microwave) and there is plumbing for a fridge. An exit near the kitchen leads to the private outdoor entertaining area, with the attraction of a built-in stainless steel BBQ.
The large master bedroom offers panoramic views of the bridge, river and city. It has a large walk in robe and a glamorous ensuite with spa, large shower, marble tiling and twin vanities. A focus is the curved glass brick wall that admits natural light. The remaining 2 bedrooms are down the polished timber staircase at ground level. Also on this level are the formal entry, bathroom with marble tiles and granite benchtops, powder room and a rumpus room leading to a covered patio. (Approval exists to extend this area to create another 1 or 2 bedrooms while maintaining a rumpus area.) The double garage with auto doors contains generous shelving and storage space and there is room for a workbench. This fashionable residence is fully reverse-cycle air-conditioned, it has an alarm system and was painted throughout recently. This property enjoys versatility of access. There is a private gate off Bowen Terrace ? ideal as a business entrance if working from home is an option. Vehicle entry is through security gates in Malt Street. There is also direct internal private access to the Central Brunswick retail and commercial precinct, which offers a cosmopolitan selection of stores, restaurants and professional services. The villa occupies an elevated position surrounded by a landscaped ‘secret’ garden and secluded grotto. Residents of Petrie Point Villas can enjoy the use of a BBQ pavilion, lap pool, sauna, spa, well-equipped gym and a meeting room and library. Managers are on site. The position of this property, on a high point of the Brisbane River, framed by the Story Bridge and just 750m from the city, will ensure its continuing appeal and marketability.
