Possessing 25 metres of picturesque, absolute Brisbane River frontage and a reassuring elevation high above 2011 and 2022 flood levels, this recently refreshed, fully repainted family home boasts updated interiors and wraparound outdoor entertaining areas that enjoy spectacular river views. Offered exclusively for the first time in 52 years, this designer-built Griffin & Knowlman residence presents a tranquil riverside lifestyle to cherish now, with future subdivision or redevelopment opportunities yours to consider, in time (STCA). Features include a versatile, self-contained granny flat or creative’s retreat, new flooring and contemporary fittings.
The mid-century modern-influenced single-level home embraces this most idyllic setting and its ideal north-to-rear aspect by incorporating wide banks of windows to capture views and fill spaces with natural light and maximise the cooling effects of the available river breezes.
Step inside the welcoming entrance foyer, pass the private study on your right and into the central hub of this much-loved home completed in 1970. Simple, well-proportioned living and dining areas showcase a copper, hooded fireplace upon a raised brick hearth that cements the appeal of this classic, retro style. Sliding doors open onto a large, all-weather covered terrace that traces the northern and eastern sides of the home and substantially increases the dwelling’s everyday living spaces and entertaining capabilities.
Bringing both the exterior and interior design in line with current monochromatic colour trends, classic whites through to deep charcoal greys have been used predominantly during this home’s tasteful refurbishment. Oak-styled plank floors laid throughout living areas and walkways offer durable, child and pet-friendly surfaces that are quiet underfoot. The bedrooms, study and self-contained suite have soft, mid-grey carpets, with travertine-look floor tiles in all wet areas.
With an independent, covered porch entryway, the self-contained studio apartment or granny flat offers functionality and flexibility, with its kitchenette and meals area, bathroom, direct access to the home’s outdoor areas and peaceful, river views. Whether you intend to utilise the area as a separate living room or games/media zone, a dedicated teenager’s retreat, accommodation for visiting guests or as a base for your business, there is plenty of potential for this space to adapt to your individual or family’s requirements.
All new cabinetry in a white, high-gloss finish has been installed in the kitchen and bathrooms, with benchtop surfaces of a smooth, engineered stone. With a breakfast bar, generous pantry, soft-closing drawers and recently upgraded, stainless-steel and black glass cooking appliances, the kitchen is bright, fresh and clean. Featured are a wall oven, a sleek 4-zone electric cooktop and a Miele dishwasher.
Bedrooms are situated at one end of the home, away from living and entertaining areas. Each has built-in wardrobes and full-width sliding windows, with the master bedroom having a tiled, walk-through dressing room and an updated ensuite with a stone-topped vanity featuring a countertop-set oval basin and brand-new tapware fittings. The family bathroom has a shower-over-bath combination and complementary tiled finishes and inclusions as appear elsewhere.
LED downlight fittings have been installed in the home, there are two split-system air-conditioners and a rooftop solar panel system to assist in reducing energy bills. Crimsafe-brand security screens have been added to sliding windows and doors for comfort and peace of mind.
The level yard and lower, lawned terrace offer wide-open spaces for the kids to play, there is room for a pool and, with a vehicle-width drive through to the backyard from one side of the house, you can park and securely store a boat, caravan, jet ski or extra cars, if needed. Re-landscaped with lush turf and new garden plantings, there is nothing to do other than move in and enjoy the upcoming summer. Investigate the possibility of installing your own jetty and river pontoon, with direct access available from this absolute riverfront address.
Potential exists to remove the existing home in the years to come, if desired, and subdivide this large 1437m2 allotment into two or possibly three, side-by-side riverfront blocks – subject to the relevant approvals. This property presents a fantastic landbank opportunity to hold for your family’s future.
