With the benefits and lifestyle of an inner-city residence, but with all the amenities of a suburban home, this immaculate residence in trendy Spring Hill offers that elusive dream of a home for the small family less than 1km from the CBD. Built over two levels, much thought has gone into the floor plan to make the absolute most of the compact 264m2 block with many clever design principals included to ensure a real versatility from each and every space.
As such, the home is able to incorporate two water tanks, garaging for four vehicles, a nine metre pool, three bedrooms, three bathrooms and separate zones for living, dining, relaxing and entertaining which are all able to work independently or effortlessly interact, thanks to the high concept, open plan design. This is perhaps best displayed in the main living area, where two sets of bi-folding doors run parallel, allowing for a complete separation between the kitchen, semi-alfresco lounge and the pool or the creation of a single, large open space.
The galley-style kitchen really is a focal feature here, running along one entire wall and seamlessly on into the semi-alfresco lounge to incorporate a barbecue and outdoor entertainment unit. With a single expanse of granite bench top and sleek, integrated cabinetry it really works in so well with the overall design. The granite bench tops have been carried through to all three bedrooms and bathrooms with the main bedroom particularly noteworthy with its high, raked ceilings, walk-in wardrobe and expansive ensuite complete with three point rain shower and direct access to the pool.
Like so much of the home, the solar heated pool fulfils multiple functions – as a training facility complete with swim jets or as a cascading water feature that is especially striking when illuminated at night. Suspended up to the first floor and surrounded by high walls and a grove of bamboo, it is also intensely private. With the elevation of the pool, room has been created below for secure garaging for four vehicles. Along with the garages, the downstairs level offers a utility room, the third bedroom and a large rumpus with private entry and kitchenette which is currently being used as an expansive home office.
With so many options, this property provides an elusive formula; a low-maintenance residence that can be easily tailored to suit any lifestyle or small family unit that is right in the city’s vibrant heart.
