Charm of an award winner
AWARDED the best renovation in 2012 by Master Builders Association Queensland, this five-bedroom property effortlessly combines luxury and comfort.
Built by Knowlman McDonald, and set along the riverfront, this house offers a spacious and stylish two-level design, enhanced by verdant views across the Brisbane River and Sherwood Arboretum.
Quality finishes add to the timeless appeal, with recycled timber floors originally from Brett’s Wharf, expanses of glass and plantation shutters ensuring a light-filled and freeflowing abode.
Beyond the main entry on the upper level, a long corridor leads down to the luxurious main suite at the rear of the floorplan.
Complete with carpet flooring, a ceiling fan and a wall of windows, this room also includes a walk-in wardrobe and an ensuite with a shower, twin vanities and a spa bath.
Three more bedrooms lie near the entry, two with walk-in wardrobes and one with a builtin. All share access to a family bathroom.
An internal staircase leads to the lower level, where a long corridor boasts an exposed stone feature wall, a ceiling void and sliding glass doors opening to a tranquil courtyard.
At the rear, an open-plan dining and kitchen area includes marble benchtops, a tiled splashback and a combined island bench and breakfast bar.
A wall of glass bi-fold doors open to a covered timber deck, with a ceiling fan, outdoor lighting and a stone pizza oven.
The deck offers views across the river, a dedicated pontoon with viewing platform and a hedge-framed pool set amid landscaped gardens.
A sunken living room lies nearby, with a fireplace and sliding glass doors. Completing the level are a laundry, bedroom, bathroom and media room with a built-in desk.
Additional features include a double garage with workshop, ducted airconditioning, intercom and security systems.
