Ver­sa­tile river­front life


SIT­TING on the banks of the Bris­bane River, this im­mac­u­lately pre­sented twolevel prop­erty is ac­com­pa­nied by a guest­house and full-size ten­nis court on a 1370sq m block over­look­ing mag­nif­i­cent views of the river and sur­rounds.

A cov­ered tim­ber deck, fit­ted with an out­door fire­place and en­ter­tain­ing area, acts as both an en­try and a con­nect­ing space be­tween the main res­i­dence and the com­fort­able guest­house.

The guest­house en­trance opens into an open-plan liv­ing area and kitchen, fit­ted with stone bench­tops and stain­less- steel ap­pli­ances, as well as a stand-alone is­land bench with sink and break­fast bar.

The bed­room, ad­ja­cent to a large mul­ti­pur­pose room, over­looks the ten­nis court in the back­yard, while a bath­room and toi­let round out the floor.

In­ter­nal stair ac­cess leads down to an at­tached garage with am­ple stor­age space.

The main house’s en­try opens to a hall­way lead­ing past an of­fice to the right, fit­ted with tim­ber shut­ters over­look­ing the out­door liv­ing area.

The hall­way flows to the open-plan kitchen, din­ing and fam­ily area past a me­dia room fit­ted with pro­jec­tor and screen as well as a sur­round-sound sys­tem and black­out shut­ters.

The large tiled kitchen, fin­ished in white, is fit­ted with stone bench­tops along­side a long is­land bench, am­ple cup­board space, and dou­ble wine fridges.

A stain­less-steel Miele oven and gas cook­top equip the kitchen, along with a built-in cof­fee ma­chine and a dish­washer.

Ac­ces­si­ble from both the din­ing and liv­ing area is an in­te­grated cov­ered tim­ber deck, reached through bi-fold doors.

The deck is fit­ted with a gas fire­place and pizza oven, as well as a dish­washer, fridge and bar­be­cue with sep­a­rate gas burner.

The deck and the din­ing area look over an invit­ing self­clean­ing cus­tom in-ground pool and spa.

A guest bed­room, pow­der room and laun­dry with garage ac­cess com­plete the level, while a tim­ber and glass stair­case as­cends to the first storey, which holds the liv­ing quarters.

The light and spa­cious main bed­room oc­cu­pies one end of the floor, fit­ted with a mag­nif­i­cent por­trait win­dow of­fer­ing panoramic views of the Bris­bane River, park­lands on the far bank and sur­rounds.

The large tiled en­suite bath­room, ac­cessed through frame­less frosted glass slid­ing doors, is fit­ted with a dou­ble frame­less glass shower, dou­ble basins with glass ac­ces­sories and a large stand-alone bath ser­viced by a pil­lar tap.

Floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows here pro­vide the same view as in the main bed­room, filling the room with light.

Two bed­rooms on this level share walk-through ac­cess to a tiled bath­room with curved frame­less glass shower, while a third bed­room ad­joins a bath­room plus a stand-alone bath­tub and a fourth bed­room com­pletes the floor.

A 10m pon­toon jetty ex­tends into the river, equipped with power hoists for jet­skis, ac­cessed by a land­scaped ter­raced gar­den.
