Built during the 1920s and extensively renovated, this elegant residence successfully unites its many classic period features with every modern convenience to create a home that is stylish, welcoming and so effortlessly liveable.
The kitchen is a perfect example of this, combining luxurious Quantum quartz bench tops and white 2pac cabinetry with elements of Silky Oak timber that really blends the old with the new and brings the whole look together. The addition of the highest quality appliances from Highland, Miele and Qasair only adds to the appeal, as do two pantries, an in-wall espresso machine, Zip Tap, blumotion drawers and a matching servery built in to the adjoining dining area.
Beyond the kitchen, a sprawling deck runs the width of the home with a sliding wall of windows giving direct access to the kitchen and tranquil views over the salt-water pool providing a wonderful setting for living, dining, relaxing and supervising children.
Back inside, an elegant living room provides a great space for the family as well as a fitting introduction to the home. There is also a secondary sitting room, ideal for children.
As to bedrooms, there are four in total – each double in size with a bank of built-in wardrobes and polished floorboards. The home has ducted air-conditioning activated by sim card. The contemporary family bathroom with stone bench top and frameless glass shower caters for three of the rooms. The master bedroom has its own ensuite complete with claw foot bath and pedestal sink in keeping with the look and feel of the rest of the property.
Situated on an easy-care 645sqm block with perfect rear north east aspect, the home is surrounded by low-maintenance landscaped grounds including a picture-perfect cottage garden out the front which incorporates hardy wisteria, jasmine, lavender and white roses.
It also boasts a winning locale in an exclusive riverside precinct that is quiet and leafy, yet remains just minutes to excellent educational facilities (St Peter’s School and the University of Queensland), public transport, shops, eateries and the golf clubs of St Lucia and Indooroopilly.
With such an outstanding location, elegant presentation and so much original character, this home would make an outstanding acquisition for professionals and young families as well as an excellent investment for the future.
