Upon entering this home's manicured front garden and stepping inside its welcoming foyer, you would be forgiven for thinking you have just checked into a luxurious Lake Como villa. Ideally positioned on a flat 791sqm allotment that is perched right on the Brisbane River, this timelessly beautiful abode exudes all the elegance of a European estate and the prestige of living in Hawthorne's tightly held river esplanade.

Looking across the sparkling Brisbane River to Teneriffe, the cherished Woolsheds precinct and the iconic city skyline, the residence will impress with its refreshing breezes, glamorous boat mooring and mesmerising panorama.
Clad in sunset-hued render, the four-bedroom home is made classically exquisite by touches like exposed timber beams, wrought-iron balustrades, imported-tiled floors, exposed brick feature walls, skylights and a magnificent void. Undeniably warm and inviting, the property also boasts an intelligent layout that flows from one attractive zone to another with ease.
On its ground level, a spacious open-plan living and dining area promises to be the heart of the residence. Presented with lofty ceilings and bathed in natural light, this spectacular combined area encompasses a romantic timber fireplace and vast amounts of in-built shelving.
Making entertaining blissfully simple, an adjoining gourmet kitchen provides everything you need to prepare a delicious meal. Displaying stone benchtops, an internal servery window, a full suite of Ilve appliances, a stainless steel splashback and ample cupboard storage, this exceptional culinary space also includes a charming bay window that is perfect for sharing an intimate meal and admiring the river views beyond.
Residents will also love how the home connects with its outdoors. Timber bi-fold doors open out to a covered al fresco area with a retractable awning and plenty of space for hosting guests. Ideal for those with children and pets, a flat fully-fenced grassed rear yard fringed by established gardens provides an over-abundance of lawn space that meets the river bank. You will also find a sizeable timber deck overlooking the river, as well as a jetty and a boat pontoon.
Continuing the entertainment options to the property's front, a generous terrace shaded by blossoming bougainvillea will transport you to the heartland of Italy or provincial France. Complete with a traditional water fountain, this second al fresco area makes an excellent first impression as you approach the residence.
Perfect for guests or older generations, a large fourth bedroom includes a built-in robe and front terrace access. There is also a full bathroom, while an airy family room and a linked balcony are situated upstairs.
Wonderfully private, a carpeted parents' retreat feels utterly lavish. Capturing an enviable water vista, this luxurious master bedroom showcases a walk-in robe and a fabulous ensuite with a frameless shower.
