Leafy lo­ca­tion at wa­ter’s edge


SIT­U­ATED on a sprawl­ing river­front block in a cul-de-sac, this res­i­dence fea­tures panoramic river views and a quiet, leafy out­look.

The 1960s house, which has been ren­o­vated, spans two lev­els and of­fers water­front en­ter­tain­ment ar­eas, nu­mer­ous liv­ing spa­ces and five bed­rooms.

Qual­ity de­sign el­e­ments through­out in­clude pol­ished tim­ber floors and ex­panses of glass pro­vid­ing tran­quil views and a light-filled en­vi­ron­ment.

Com­mu­nal liv­ing ar­eas are po­si­tioned on the up­per level of the house and in­cor­po­rate a for­mal lounge room and ca­sual liv­ing and din­ing spa­ces. Upon en­try, the lounge room fea­tures a fire­place, tim­ber floors and a neu­tral colour pal­ette.

Vast slid­ing glass doors open to the liv­ing and din­ing ar­eas, cre­at­ing a nat­u­ral ex­ten­sion of space and an ex­pan­sive open­plan de­sign.

The liv­ing and din­ing ar­eas oc­cupy a bright, mod­ern space with gal­leries of glass lou­vres and di­rect ac­cess to a rear deck.

The cov­ered tim­ber deck pro­vides sweep­ing views of lush tree canopies to the river.

The kitchen over­looks the din­ing area and of­fers bold colour ac­cents com­ple­mented by fresh neu­tral tones.

Fea­tures in­clude stain­lesssteel ap­pli­ances, ex­ten­sive cab­i­netry and a break­fast bar.

Also on the up­per level of the res­i­dence are three bed­rooms.

Each bed­room has built-in wardrobes and large win­dows with plenty of nat­u­ral light.

A cen­tral bath­room ser­vices the floor.

Com­plet­ing the level is a study and the laun­dry.

A sec­ond liv­ing zone is on the lower level.

With an open-plan con­fig­u­ra­tion, it has tiled floors and floor-to-ceil­ing slid­ing glass doors open­ing to a rear cov­ered deck.

The deck flows to the rear yard and has river views.

Also in the open-plan space is a mod­ern kitch­enette.

Two bed­rooms are po­si­tioned on the floor and both bed­rooms have built-in wardrobes.

A bath­room and stor­age space com­plete the level.

The res­i­dence fea­tures 24m of river frontage en­com­pass­ing es­tab­lished land­scaped gar­dens and ter­raced lawns with ir­ri­ga­tion, as well as a deck at the river’s edge.

Ad­di­tional fea­tures of the house in­clude air­con­di­tion­ing, ceil­ing fans and a sep­a­rate lower level en­try.

About 8km from the CBD, the res­i­dence is within walk­ing dis­tance of a cafe precinct, parks and nu­mer­ous pub­lic trans­port op­tions.
