BOAST­ING an el­e­vated north­fac­ing 1154sq m riverfront block, this el­e­gant res­i­dence en­joys a stylish set­ting.

There is a 20m frontage to the Bris­bane River and views to In­dooroop­illy golf course and the Bris­bane CBD sky­line.

Dat­ing from the 1930s, the home was re­cently ren­o­vated and has con­tem­po­rary fix­tures and fit­tings.

The in­te­rior com­bines a white colour scheme with sand­stone to cre­ate a light-filled en­vi­ron­ment en­hanced by glass and plan­ta­tion shut­ters.

At the front of the res­i­dence are a garage, wa­ter fea­ture and an es­tab­lished gar­den with lawn, trees and shrubs.

The main en­try leads into an open-plan de­sign fea­tur­ing sand­stone floor­ing. A large liv­ing room has a fire­place and french doors open­ing to the east­ern side of the res­i­dence.

On a sunken level is an of­fice with car­pet floor­ing fac­ing the front of the res­i­dence.

The liv­ing room leads into a din­ing area while ad­ja­cent is a kitchen boast­ing gran­ite bench­tops, AEG and Gagge­nau ap­pli­ances, and an is­land bench.

Bi­fold doors open from the din­ing room to a ver­gola-cov­ered ter­race.

On the western side of the floor­plan is a bed­room en­joy­ing views to the river and french doors open­ing to the ter­race.

Ad­ja­cent is a bath­room with a shower while a nearby laun­dry has out­side ac­cess. A tim­ber stair­case leads up­stairs.

The main bed­room is at the rear of the floor­plan on the up­per level and has panoramic views, car­pet floor­ing, a ceil­ing fan, walk-in wardrobe and en­suite with twin van­i­ties and a sep­a­rate bath­tub and shower.

There is also ac­cess to a bal­cony with vis­tas to the river.

Two bed­rooms with built-in wardrobes, ceil­ing fans and car­pet floor­ing also en­joy wa­ter­front views and ac­cess to the bal­cony. The larger bed­room also fea­tures an en­suite with a bath­tub.

The ter­race looks to a pool pro­tected by glass balustrades and there is also ac­cess to a riverfront stu­dio sep­a­rate to the main res­i­dence.

Por­phyry stone stairs and pav­ing lead down to the river through es­tab­lished ter­raced gar­dens with lawn, trees and shrubs to a boat house and pon­toon.

Other fea­tures of the lux­u­ri­ous res­i­dence in­clude ceil­ing fans and plenty of stor­age, as well as air­con­di­tion­ing and se­cu­rity.
