Sold under the hammer! River views, inner city lifestyle and location
Superbly located in one of Brisbane’s most sought-after suburbs, this home enjoys an elevated position on a quiet impasse. An enclosed portico, with a bank of windows running its entire length, creates a sense of arrival and is the perfect vantage point to take in panoramic views of the Brisbane River, Queensland University campus, Mount Coot-tha, Mount Barney and as far afield as the Bunya Mountains. With enticing scope for the new owner to impose his or her own unique stamp, this home provides an opportunity to reap unlimited rewards.
Character rich, this home displays original features such as soaring fourteen foot ceilings rarely available today, vertical joinery and polished timber floors all enhanced by a fresh coat of paint in a neutral colour palette that adds to the feeling of light and space.
Flowing from the front portico is the generously proportioned open living/dining room serviced by a new bespoke kitchen offering abundant cupboard space, integrated dishwasher, pantry, gas cooktop, electric wall oven and shelving. Connecting with the kitchen is a sunny breakfast room that overlooks the rear garden, both benefiting from a highly desirable north-east aspect.
The king sized master bedroom is situated at the front of the house and profits from the river and district views, the second, also a very large bedroom, has a walk-in wardrobe and the third is located on the other side of the home just off the kitchen. An original bathroom with a large linen and toiletry cupboard services the bedrooms and for the comfort of family and guests there is a separate powder room.
The lower level is divided into several multi-purpose areas that flow from a large open space providing unparalleled storage, a laundry, cellar and bathroom with direct access to the level, fenced rear garden, an ideal playground for children and pets. This large utility area and bathroom serves as a convenient mudroom for soiled boots, raincoats, schoolbags, sports equipment, soiled children and soiled pets. The possibilities of this space are only limited by imagination and would make an excellent “man cave” or children’s playroom.
Added features include a walk-in closet in the breakfast room, slimline venetians, insect screens and near new carpet to the three bedrooms. A sun deck above the lock- up garage provides yet another perspective of the cinematic view which is beautiful by day and magical by night.
This premier address is just 2kms from the CBD and is in the Brisbane State High catchment. Within walking distance of the South Bank cultural and entertainment precinct and bordering cosmopolitan West End, with its eclectic array of cafes, restaurants and boutiques, this inner city residence provides huge potential and an enviable lifestyle.
