Escape to the country
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.
