Lux­ury on the wa­ter’s edge

The Courier-Mail - Property - - REALESTATE MARKET PLACE - CAS­SAN­DRA HOUGHTON

BOAST­ING a riverfront lo­ca­tion, this lux­u­ri­ous home has a quiet, leafy out­look with panoramic wa­ter views.

Pre­sent­ing a grand fa­cade and stretch­ing across two large lev­els, the views are max­imised by the ex­ten­sive use of glass and bi­fold doors.

In­te­ri­ors are fresh and mod­ern, with neu­tral colours and tiled and tim­ber floors, while the floor­plan of­fers five bed­rooms and nu­mer­ous ar­eas for liv­ing and en­ter­tain­ment.

Fur­ther high­lights in­clude a sun­deck look­ing to the river, an in­ground pool and a pon­toon.

A front land­scaped gar­den with a path leads to the main en­trance on the lower level.

In­side, an open-plan space in­cor­po­rat­ing liv­ing and din­ing ar­eas has french lime­stone floor­ing and soar­ing ceil­ings.

Be­yond a sweep­ing curved tim­ber stair­case, a for­mal din­ing area fea­tures two walls of floor-to-ceil­ing glass bi­fold doors open­ing through to an out­door pa­tio area.

Cre­at­ing a nat­u­ral flow be­tween the in­doors and out­doors, there is also abun­dant nat­u­ral light.

An ad­ja­cent for­mal lounge area boasts glass bi­fold doors and river views.

The nearby kitchen has a con­tem­po­rary gal­ley-style de­sign. Fea­tures in­clude a strik­ing Cal­cutta mar­ble wa­ter­fall is­land bench, qual­ity ap­pli­ances and ex­ten­sive cab­i­netry.

Also on the ground level is a bed­room with an en­try point to the out­doors, built-in wardrobe, and sep­a­rate en­trance to a cen­tral bath­room.

Com­plet­ing the floor is a laun­dry.

The rest of the sleep­ing ac­com­mo­da­tion is on the up­per level of the house.

At the rear of the floor­plan, the main bed­room fea­tures glass bi­fold doors open­ing to a wrap­around bal­cony with un­in­ter­rupted views.

With rich iron­bark floor­ing, the suite also con­tains a walk-in wardrobe and an el­e­gant en­suite with dual van­i­ties, black floor tiles, sep­a­rate bath­tub look­ing to the river, and plan­ta­tion-style shut­ters.

Three other bed­rooms have built-in wardrobes and are ser­viced by a large bath­room.

One bed­room has french doors to the bal­cony, while the other two have pri­vate bal­conies look­ing to the street.

The up­per level also has an open-plan liv­ing area and a study or of­fice.

Out­side, a tiled, heated in­ground pool boasts riverfront views, while the large 787sq m block fea­tures flood­light­ing and im­mac­u­late land­scap­ing with hedges, grassed lawn ar­eas and tiles.

There is also an elec­tronic wa­ter­ing sys­tem, bore wa­ter and a 3000L wa­ter tank.

In a prime po­si­tion over­look­ing the river is the tim­ber sun­deck.

Additional fea­tures of the property in­clude a dou­ble garage, video in­ter­com and a se­cu­rity alarm sys­tem.
