THIS stun­ning res­i­dence is set on more than 3500sq m of river frontage at Fig Tree Pocket.

With two lev­els of liv­ing, a back­yard that seems to go on for­ever be­fore meet­ing the Bris­bane River and re­sort­style ameni­ties, the home was de­signed with the en­ter­tainer in mind.

The res­i­dence is framed by man­i­cured lawns and land­scap­ing and guests en­ter­ing the house are greeted by a bil­liards/ games room off the main en­trance which opens to the open-plan lounge, din­ing and sit­ting ar­eas.

The kitchen is off the din­ing area and is equipped with Miele and Smeg stain­less steel ap­pli­ances, and looks out over the pool and man­i­cured grounds.

There is an im­pres­sive bar area op­po­site the kitchen which leads to a cov­ered en­ter­tain­ing space.

Up­stairs are two sep­a­rate liv­ing ar­eas. On one side of the up­per level are three bed­rooms, all with built-in wardrobes, with two shar­ing ac­cess to a main bath­room with a sep­a­rate bath and shower.

On the ad­ja­cent side is the main bed­room, with his and hers walk-in wardrobes, views of the grounds and the river, en­suite with sep­a­rate spa bath and shower.

Out­side, an en­ter­tain­ing area has a built-in bar­be­cue with stain­less steel bench and sink plus a range­hood. This area leads to the in­ground pool with an im­pres­sive mo­saic dol­phin at the bot­tom.

Just when you think it can’t get any bet­ter, a set of stairs leads past a wa­ter fea­ture to a trop­i­cal pav­il­lion, the per­fect place for evening drinks, while watch­ing ten­nis on the ad­ja­cent full-size court.

There is also a firepit next to the ten­nis court and end­less lawns on which to en­joy a pic­nic while savour­ing the un­in­ter­rupted views of the Bris­bane River.
