The Courier-Mail - Property - - MARKETPLACE - Stephen Nadin

SIT­TING on more than four hectares of bush­land and back­ing onto a state for­est, a coun­try life­style is on of­fer just 14 kilo­me­tres from Bris­bane’s CBD.

This two-level Up­per Ke­dron res­i­dence fea­tures two pavil­ions linked by a cov­ered breeze­way with a three-me­tre wide wrap­around cov­ered ve­randa.

Boast­ing an im­pres­sive over­head atrium, the kitchen has glass splash backs, Cae­sar­stone bench­tops, stain­less steel ap­pli­ances in­clud­ing an ex­tra wide oven with gas cook­top, break­fast bar, pol­ished tim­ber floors and ex­ten­sive stor­age space.

Ad­ja­cent to the open-plan space and also fea­tur­ing pol­ished tim­ber floors is a lounge with an al­cove fea­tur­ing win­dow lou­vres and din­ing room with views to ter­raced gar­dens, a flood­lit ten­nis court and salt­wa­ter pool.

Nearby is a fam­ily room and bathroom with shower.

Also on this level and sep­a­rate from the liv­ing area is the main be­d­room with raked tim­ber ceil­ings and bush­land views. There is also a walk-in wardrobe and en­suite with twin van­i­ties and dou­ble shower.

The main be­d­room in­cludes a sep­a­rate li­brary which has ac­cess to the en­suite.

The lower level boasts a sep­a­rate en­trance and fea­tures four bed­rooms with car­pet, built-in wardrobes, slid­ing glass doors to a cov­ered pa­tio and bush­land views.

There is also laun­dry with tiled floors, bathroom with twin van­i­ties, shower, and floor-to-ceil­ing tiles, and rum­pus room with tiled floors flow­ing to the pa­tio. A tim­ber stair­case links the two lev­els. Across the breeze­way is an­other be­d­room with walk-in wardrobes and en­suite which leads to the ter­raced gar­dens, ten­nis court, pool and pond.

A sep­a­rate games pav­il­ion has plenty of loft stor­age.

There is also a home of­fice with a sep­a­rate en­try.

The main res­i­dence, built in the 1970s, also fea­tures air­con­di­tion­ing, ceil­ing fans, and car­port park­ing for four ve­hi­cles.

There are ex­ten­sive gar­dens with lawn, trees and shrubs sur­round­ing the res­i­dence.

Steps lead down from the pa­tio, with the salt­wa­ter pool ad­ja­cent, through ter­raced gar­dens to the flood­lit ten­nis court.

Some dis­tance from the main res­i­dence is a self-con­tained guest cot­tage which has two bed­rooms and lounge and din­ing ar­eas.

The acreage also fea­tures pri­vate dams and 100,000-litre water tanks.
