Occupying 702m2 of prime riverside real estate, this solid two storey residence is the embodiment of a bygone era, designed to frame and maximise the stunning outlook of the Brisbane river.
Built in the 1980s, the home boasts a traditional brick facade, complimented by low maintenance gardens of established greenery, adding to the serenity and providing prized seclusion in what is already a quiet and exclusive position.
Introducing you to the charming interior is a large, tiled entryway, which provides passage to several separate living spaces. As you make your way through the home, superior craftmanship is on display almost everywhere you look; the interior is adorned by ornate architraves, elegant cornices and mouldings, contrasting skirting and lining boards, gorgeous rose ceilings, vintage lighting fixtures and bold timber balustrades.
Located at the heart of the home is the main living area, comprising the spacious kitchen and living room, and with an enviable outlook of the river. Expansive windows, reaching almost floor to ceiling, allow the view to be appreciated from almost anywhere within the home. Together with stylish timber doors, invigorating river breezes and warm natural light are welcomed inside in abundance. The roomy kitchen is equipped to cater for the largest of families, with ample cabinetry storage, quality appliances, gas cooktop and plenty of benchtop space for meal preparation.
Opening out from the kitchen and main living area, a paved patio overlooks the in-ground pool and rear yard. Designed for entertaining, this is a superb spot to host friends and family, whether it be for a summer afternoon barbeque or intimate evening meal.
Completing the ground floor is a multi-purpose room. With private access to the floor's main, two-way bathroom, this room makes for an exceptional study, home studio or guest bedroom.
Moving upstairs, the second floor hosts the remaining four bedrooms, including the master suite. Situated at the rear of the home, this parents' retreat benefits from its own sweeping vista of the river, while a generously sized walk-in robe and exquisite ensuite, complete with claw foot bath, complete this space.
The further three bedrooms, all featuring built-in robes and soft-touch carpet, are found at the front of the floor plan, adjoining the second living room and are within easy reach of the third bathroom.
Completing the second floor is the elevated deck, accessible from both the second living room and master bedroom. Offering the best vantage point from which to appreciate this stunning riverside position, you'd be hard pressed to find a better spot for a morning coffee.
Other notable features of this estate include ducted air conditioning throughout the second floor, a large laundry on the ground level, and side access leading to the waterfront and private jetty. Down a rare side access lane, the rear of the property is capable of housing a plethora of toys with a lock-up garage providing extensive storage space. A secure garage at the front of the home provides parking for an additional two vehicles.
Occupying a valuable block in flourishing West End, this address is within close proximity of amenities, reputable schools and local highlights. Brisbane State High School, Somerville House and St Laurence's College are all within a few minutes' drive. Nearby public transport, including bus stops and the West End ferry terminal, lie nearby, ready to take you around town, while students will love the convenience of having the University of Queensland directly across the river.
Appointed with all the modern inclusions one could want or need, this residence is ready to be lived in immediately and sits high enough to have never been flood effected. The solid brick build provides an outstanding foundation for any future renovations or updates. A deceased estate, the opportunity to secure this incredible property is not likely to be repeated.
