This large modern architecturally designed home is positioned directly on St Lucia Golf Course, and a stones throw from St Peter’s Lutheran College, University of Queensland and Ironside State School. It has been owned by the same family for 50 years, and has undergone extensive refurbishment over the last 10 years. Set on a generous 708m2 allotment, it boasts 520m2 of well-designed floor space, over two levels. The clever design allows ample room for a large family, including separate teenager’s retreat downstairs and a home office and gym. There are separate entertaining spaces on both the upper and lower levels, to allow for large parties, flowing onto, and overlooking, the paved terraces and pool. All of this is framed by lush views of the St Lucia Golf Course, from nearly every room.
The upstairs offers an open plan kitchen and living room, complete with Miele appliances and Caesarstone bench tops. This area flows onto a large covered deck, with integrated barbecue and spectacular uninterrupted north facing views of the 17th fairway. This area is cleverly designed to allow year round private entertaining space, no matter what the weather. The serenity of the surrounding green spaces, also offers a peaceful retreat, despite being only 7km from the city. There are 4 bedrooms in the western wing, upstairs, with plenty of space in the 2 bathrooms. Three of the bedrooms enjoy magnificent golf course views and have their own balcony. The main bedroom has a large walk-in -robe and ensuite, with double shower. The 5th bedroom is fully self-contained downstairs, and could be used for a nanny or extended family. The house has ducted air-conditioning for year-round comfort, double garage with remote lock up, and front security gate and video intercom system. There is also a back to base security system and a fully fenced yard.
The direct gate access to the golf course, makes this a highly sought after position in the exclusive Long Pocket precinct. This allows for daily recreation on the 100 acres of beautiful parkland, to kick a soccer ball with the kids, or stroll to the Golf Club restaurants and bar. It can also be used for an easy walk or cycle to St Peters Lutheran College, Ironside State School and the University of Queensland. The Brisbane River is just an 800m stroll along the golf course, and offers miles of walking tracks along it’s scenic banks, to both the University and Indooroopilly Golf Club. With public transport options within walking distance, and a short drive to Indooroopilly Shopping Centre, and Toowong Village, there is everything a busy family needs.
