Elegant Riverfront Home in the Perfect Position … Rare Opportunity Awaits
- 4 Beds
- 3 Baths
- 3 Cars
Nestled on the northern side of the majestic Brisbane River is this delightful Queenslander filled with charm and old style grace. Formerly a smaller two bedroom pre-WWII cottage, this home has been tastefully and seamlessly expanded and renovated by one of Queensland's premier architects Kevin Hayes, who has done an outstanding job offering ambience and charisma.
Located in one of New Farm's most exclusive streets, this home is complete with: three bedrooms + study, three bathrooms, three separate living areas, two decks, including an alfresco entertaining deck with expansive views over the Brisbane River, polished timber floors, high ceilings and premium fixtures and fittings throughout. There is also lift access from the ground level up to the first level of the house, a unique feature that allows comfortable living for all ages of residents...very convenient when transporting shopping upstairs to the kitchen also!
The ground level of the home has a majestic timbered gallery, which provides a ground level living area suitable for comfortable relaxation and is spacious enough for a pool table. Two of the three bedrooms are located on the ground floor, including the gorgeous master suite, which opens out to a private riverfront courtyard. The master bedroom is complete with an ensuite, including double shower and spa bath, a dual sided (his and hers') walk-in robe including a small dressing room.
A solid timber staircase leads to the next level of the home, which has two living areas (one currently used as a library). The main living and dining area leads out to the alfresco timber deck which enjoys expansive views of the meandering Brisbane River, and is beautifully framed for privacy by a Poinciana tree, truly enhancing this appealing place to enjoy Sunday brunch or an early evening drink. Quietly observe the activity on the River, including dog-walkers, joggers enjoying a picturesque run along the river's edge and young families strolling to the park...
The kitchen is completely fitted out with quality Miele appliances, including an integrated dishwasher, and half gas, half electric cook top, a corner pantry and an abundance of storage...in fact the whole home has immense storage capacity, always handy!
A guest bedroom and bathroom is also located on the first level of the home, and upstairs there is a cosy but roomy loft which could be used as an additional bedroom or office. There is also a study nook on the first level between the two living areas, and a built-in wet bar.
The home is air-conditioned throughout, has ceiling fans, a back to base alarm system, crimsafe screens and attractive solid timber windows throughout. It is a property that exudes understated class and style and would be a warm and inviting place to come home to....
Outside the home is immensely appealing, with low maintenance cottage style, drought resistant gardens, and a front gate leading directly down to the river walk. Fully fenced, with an electronic gate, single lock-up garage (with ample room for extra vehicles on the paved forecourt), this is an ideal executive style home...no gardening, close proximity to the city and a beautifully renovated home that needs no money expended. Just move in and enjoy the lifestyle benefits immediately.
One of only a handful of riverfront homes on the north side, the location of this home is unsurpassed, with ferry access either at Sydney Street or Brunswick street both only a short stroll from your back door back gate via the River Walk, a bus stop at your back door, the beautiful New Farm park a two minute walk away and the city 5 minutes away; it is the ultimate position...enjoy inner city living, with peace and tranquillity an added bonus.
The current owners have lovingly expanded and restored this home to create something really special. They are relocating further north and are sadly saying goodbye, however, their heart is set on their new property, so they are highly motivated to sell and move on.
