Positioned amid manicured greenery in an enviable pocket of Ascot, this imposing, extensive Federation-era Queenslander is set on a level 810m2 parcel of land and boasts a commanding street presence with its traditional gables and balustrades. Fully renovated, the light and airy interior of this stately family residence offers a wealth of entertainment options over two spacious levels. With extra-high ceilings (upper 3.15m, lower 2.75m), multiple alfresco spaces, north-east-facing yard and an elongated swimming pool, the home truly encompasses the essence of subtropical luxury lifestyle.
Making for an impressive entrance, a spacious void (6.52m height) set with one of several crystal chandeliers floats above the staircase leading to the upper level. Here, an open plan space comprised of formal lounge, family and dining, meals area and kitchen flows out to a covered deck. The gourmet galley-style kitchen features stone benchtops, stainless steel appliances and an ample open walk-in pantry. The formal lounge opens through French doors to a classic covered verandah with leafy street outlook, while the rear deck faces northeast with a lovely aspect to the Gateway Bridge, an ideal spot for breakfast on a weekend morning or an intimate dinner alike.
Also on the upper level, the expansive luxury master suite is floored with plush carpet and features a walk-in robe and elegant, oversized double ensuite designed with privacy in mind. Bedrooms two and three each feature their own walk-in robe and shared ensuite with surround sound system and laundry chute. A discrete powder room is also tucked away near the entrance.
The lower level features a generous home theatre and wine cellar, also housing the second living area, fourth and fifth bedrooms, abundant, well-designed storage and massive double garage. The living area leads out to an enormous covered entertaining deck, completed by a kitchen with built-in barbeque, and adjacent to the stunning in-ground lap pool, which features its own suite of lights and solar heating system for year-round swimming. The low-maintenance side and rear gardens face north and east, providing a bright, sunny aspect without the heat of the westerly sun, perfect for children and pets to play well within view of the entertaining area.
Other features of this fantastic entertainer include a high-quality solar panel system (over $10,000/pa worth of energy), a pair of rainwater tanks, Vacu-Maid throughout the whole house, functional and stylish porcelain floor tiles in main areas and plush carpet for relaxation areas, recessed ceiling lights and more.
