Located within a few minutes’ drive of Centro Lutwyche and only 4.5 kilometres to the CBD, this 7 year old residence is sure to impress the discerning buyer. Florrie Street offers tranquillity and seclusion yet proximity to major facilities.
With an advantageous layout of three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms, the residence offers spectacular views of the cityscape from its easterly facing master bedroom and downstairs deck.

The kitchen and diner lie beyond the lounge and lead out through full-length sliding glass doors on to the cooling entertainment area. The kitchen itself boasts an appliance nook, an ample pantry, a Stile electric stove and oven, a Fisher and Paykel dishwasher and microwave niche. The master chef can enjoy views out on to the verandah whilst holding conversations with guests over the breakfast bar to the diner.
The downstairs is completed by a separate toilet and its own full-sized laundry a welcomed luxury rarely seen in townhouses and apartments.
Upstairs lie the three bedrooms. The king-sized master bedroom offers its own balcony with unforgettable views of the city. This scene is flanked by timber blinds and a simple calico drop curtain. The soothing ambience here is augmented by the leafy outlook as full-length sliding glass doors open on the breezy balcony. With reverse cycle air-conditioning, this room is a retreat from the summer heat and boasts its own ensuite and walk-in robe.
The central hallway, which is flanked by the other two bedrooms, leads to the family bathroom, flooded by natural light through a skylight and offering a full-sized bath. The two bedrooms both come with built-in robes, timber blinds and ceiling fans. A separate toilet completes this comfortable storey.
