Rare riverfront retreat
Auction Location: Onsite.
Suspended above the Brisbane River and basking in private, tranquil surrounds, this expansive contemporary residence promises a truly unique inner-city lifestyle.
Set within the exclusive “Cascades on Rosecliffe”, a secluded enclave of just five homes, Number Two’s dual-level design boasts a 303m2 floorplan, magnificent river views and direct access to the property’s jetty.
Encased by the soothing sound of leaves rustling in the Eucalypts, the sing-song of native birdlife and rowers gliding down the river, it is almost impossible to believe that this home is just 2km from the CBD. Plus, residents can enjoy living mere minutes from Brisbane’s best lifestyle precincts and within the coveted Brisbane State High School catchment.
Awash with natural light and cooling easterly breezes, both the vast living/entertaining level and the dedicated bedroom floor converge onto alfresco terraces. Each boast sweeping views across the river to the grounds of The University of Queensland.
An impressive double height entry foyer, rich hardwood floors and stylish finishes create a superb ambiance within the home. The open-plan lower level features a beautiful renovated kitchen with stone benchtops, 2Pac soft-close cabinetry and European appliances including gas cooktop and dishwasher.
Wall-to-wall glass doors frame glorious treetop and river outlooks, connecting the interior with a huge terrace. Outside, there is space for an oversized dining table and comfortable lounge, gourmet BBQ set-up and all the potted plants, organic veggies or herbs you desire.
This level also boasts a separate atrium-style library or media room, presenting the height of privacy and versatility. An additional home office with access onto the terrace could also be converted into a 4th bedroom or guest room if required.
Upstairs, three spacious built-in bedrooms include the master with sun-lit ensuite and large walk-in robe. Both the master and second bedroom feature floor-to-ceiling windows and direct access onto the terrace balcony.
Additional property highlights include reverse cycle air-conditioning, ceiling fans, remote retractable sunshades, 2 bathrooms plus separate guest powder room, new carpets, a climate-controlled wine cellar, cleverly concealed laundry, private outdoor drying area and a huge secure under-croft storage perfect for bikes or paddle boats.
Fully secured behind remote gates, the property boasts two side-by-side covered parking spaces with easy access into the residence, intercom pedestrian access with coded entry and an alarm system.
This hilltop cul-de-sac address sits within walking distance of transport, cafes, shops and scenic riverside parkland, with access in minutes to Brisbane State High School, other elite colleges including St Laurence’s and Somerville House, universities, major hospitals, as well as the vibrant West End, Woolloongabba and Southbank precincts.
Promising the best of inner-city convenience, yet feeling a thousand miles away, this unique residence simply must be viewed!
