Triple treat on the water­front

The Courier-Mail - Property - - REALESTATE MARKET PLACE - EL­IZ­A­BETH REN­NIE

COM­BIN­ING el­e­gance with a con­tem­po­rary edge, this river­front prop­erty boasts a spa­cious tri-level de­sign.

Set on 1060sq m in Fig Tree Pocket, this four-bed­room res­i­dence fea­tures gal­leries of glass, raked tim­ber ceil­ings and at­mo­spheric light­ing, com­ple­mented by sleek lines and sweep­ing curves.

Built in 1993, and re­cently ren­o­vated, the house has a time­less de­sign en­hanced by neu­tral in­te­rior tones, a com­bi­na­tion of tiles and car­pet, and a dual-height ceil­ing with a sky­light, fill­ing the cen­tre of the home with nat­u­ral light.

Panoramic views across the river fea­ture through­out the house, thanks to walls of glass and mul­ti­ple bal­conies and out­door en­ter­tain­ing zones.

Be­yond the main en­try on the mid­dle level, the house flows through to for­mal and ca­sual liv­ing ar­eas, with the for­mal space in­clud­ing a soar­ing ceil­ing and chan­de­lier, plush car­pet, a sand­stone fire­place and slid­ing glass doors open­ing to a bal­cony.

The ad­ja­cent ca­sual liv­ing and din­ing area fea­tures sand­stone floors and di­rect ac­cess to an ex­ten­sive ver­go­la­cov­ered ter­race, flow­ing around the rear of the res­i­dence and pro­vid­ing views across the river.

A gourmet kitchen is in­cor­po­rated in the de­sign, over­look­ing the fam­ily area and in­clud­ing a range of Euro­pean ap­pli­ances, navy cab­i­netry and a Cala­catta mar­ble is­land bench, which also func­tions as a break­fast bar, seat­ing four.

The main bed­room is to­wards the front of the res­i­dence, fea­tur­ing di­rect ac­cess to the cov­ered ter­race, a walk-in wardrobe and a mar­ble en­suite with a shower and sep­a­rate bath­tub.

There is also a com­bined laun­dry and pow­der room open­ing to a dry­ing area at the front of the res­i­dence, as well as in­ter­nal ac­cess through to the dou­ble garage.

As­cend­ing to the up­per level, via an in­ter­nal stair­case, there is a cen­tral cor­ri­dor flow­ing through to three bed­rooms and a study.

Two of th­ese bed­rooms and the study in­clude built-in wardrobes and open out to pri­vate bal­conies, while a bath­room with twin van­i­ties, a bath­tub and sep­a­rate shower com­pletes the level.

On the lower level, an ex­pan­sive fam­ily and me­dia room fea­tures a built-in wet bar, fire­place and glass slid­ing doors open­ing out to a cov­ered pa­tio.

Nearby, a hu­mid­i­fied wine cel­lar fea­tures ca­pac­ity to hold more than 5000 bot­tles.

A pow­der room and ex­ten­sive stor­age ar­eas com­plete the lay­out.

Po­si­tioned amid man­i­cured grounds, this prop­erty boasts a north­east as­pect and a rear lawn that slopes gen­tly down to the wa­ter’s edge.

Ad­di­tional fea­tures of the prop­erty in­clude split-sys­tem heat­ing and air­con­di­tion­ing, as well as an alarm sys­tem and a wa­ter tank.
