ANOTHER ONE SOLD BY ADAM NOBEL
Is this the best value home in Brookfield? Yes it is. You may be very surprised at what this home will sell for. The owners must sell and will meet the market. Be quick to inspect as this property will be sold and represents the best value in the area.
With an enormous amount of indoor and outdoor space, this colossus of a home gives any large or growing family incredible flexibility and separate living areas. With five possible configurations for luxurious living, plus the alfresco dining, you will be spoilt for choice of where to kick back and relax. Not only does this property offer zoned living, a private pool, flat fully fenced yard and wrap-around verandah, it is also positioned well back from the street so that the children can play safely in its environs or explore the stunning park lands, walk ways and bike ways, which lie beyond the gate at the end of the garden.
This architect-designed home has ducted air-con throughout and exemplifies family living with its generous U-shaped design pivoting around views to the cooling pool and alfresco area. All entertaining is entirely private and well removed from noise of neighbouring households. Entrance to the property is off the welcoming deck and leads to the dining and lounge on the left and enormous open-plan kitchen/family/TV on the right.
The kitchen occupies a massive L-shape with the island bench at its hub. It is well appointed, offering a double sink, huge walk-in corner panty, Westinghouse ceramic glass stove top and electric oven and rangehood. The family and TV lounge lie at each end and circle around the covered outdoor area ensuring the chef is part of the action (and able to supervise littlies) at all times. This area is elegantly lit by downlights and leads to a substantial laundry, separate toilet and internal access to the triple car garage no more hopping through raindrops with the groceries.
The rumpus on the other side of the U-shape opens on to the deck and pool and has its own bathroom so that paddlers and swimmers can head for the shower straight away without disrupting the rest of the house. Storage on this level is plentiful with an understair cubby and linen closet in the family room.
The stairs up to the second level open out on to a splendid parents’ retreat, which surveys the neighbouring park and leads to an inviting balcony to relish on lazy weekend breakfasts. All bedrooms upstairs are generous doubles and have full wall-length mirrored built-in robes, tough neutral-toned carpet to soften the footfalls and full-drop windows to appreciate the views or surrounding greenery. Both the master and the fourth bedroom enjoy the superlative views of the parkland with its bike trails and walkways criss-crossing the tended grass. The master also includes a stunning ensuite in sophisticated charcoal tones. A study with internet and phone connections completes this level.
With three-car lock up remote garage, 5,000L water tank and private courtyard around the pool, 104 Kintyre Street offers incredible privacy as its borders are edged with lofty palm trees and its position on the block takes advantage of the vista of the parklands behind the property. Set in a quiet street, it benefits from the joys of relaxed country living and proximity to the city.
The suburb of Brookfield lies 15 kilometres from the city centre and is renowned for its opulent, million-dollar residences. In a city of over two million inhabitants, it’s surprising to find expanses of property so close to the CBD. Brookfield has all the lushness of a country estate but the convenience of being only 10 minutes from the neighbouring suburbs of Kenmore and Indooroopilly where there are plenty of shops, boutiques, supermarkets, playing fields, schools and transport connections.
In all of the neighbouring suburbs you will find Brisbane’s very best schools. Kenmore State High is one of the most highly regarded state schools. There is also Kenmore State Primary which has its own swimming pool and a special needs section for students with learning disabilities; and Our Lady of the Rosary is one of the largest Catholic schools in the Archdiocese. In nearby Fig Tree Pocket you will find a Montessori School and in Indooroopilly you will find St Peters. Additionally, Kintyre Street offers easy access to Brisbane’s private school buses taking students to the best educational establishments in the city.
Retail options abound with Kenmore Village, Kenmore Central and Kenmore Plaza lying only three kilometres away. Further afield lies the about-to-be-refurbished Westfield Shopping Centre at Indooroopilly with a new David Jones, Myers and over 70 specialty shops.
Express bus number 435 leaves regularly from nearby Kailua Street for a trip to the city and also travels via Indooroopilly for a handy stop at its attractions.
