ACREAGE WITH CITY VIEWSThis is a rare find - acreage in Pullenvale with city views. Here is a wonderful place where your family can grow with lawns to run on, a court to play tennis, a paddock for horses, wood burning fireplaces and indoor/outdoor living spaces set against the backdrop of beautiful trees and city lights.
When you arrive at 34 Woodfield Road, you’re on top of the ridge, which like most ridge tops has three important advantages: it is level land, it captures summer breezes coming up the hill and it captures stunning views of green lawns, gardens and the valley of towering trees crowned with the city. It is this ridge top location graced with a spacious northeast facing home that makes these 2.5 acres a rare find.
Walk through the front gate and a sandstone path takes you across the lawn to the welcoming one level home. Step inside the wide entrance that flows into the expansive lounge and you are instantly beckoned by the wall of glass that brings the stunning view inside.
This view of treetops crowned with the city can be seen from every northeast facing indoor/outdoor living and entertaining space of the large one level home. Step through the glass wall, which is a bank of sliding glass doors, onto the wide covered eastern terrace that runs alongside the swimming pool. The contrast of the sweeping view to the horizon with the cosy sight of the lounge’s built-in log fireplace is breathtaking. The lounge flows into the elegant formal dining area, which is golden with sunlight streaming in through another glass wall.
Continue through to the heart of the home – an open expanse that houses the kitchen/breakfast area/family lounge. This large space also has a glass wall to the east bringing in the beautiful view and a wood burning slow combustion fireplace. Like the lounge, you can step through the glass wall onto the wide eastern terrace. Again, the contrast of the natural beauty outside with the cosy, sunlit interior takes your breath away.
The gourmet kitchen with European appliances and long stone bench tops has abundant storage. Whip up dinner while taking in the view yet remain part of the family - the breakfast area and family lounge are part of this one large space that looks out through the glass wall to the view. Each day is filled with sunlight, gardens and trees. Each night, the city lights are magical against the dark sky.
Next to the kitchen is a huge rumpus room. Step outside from the rumpus room, past an outdoor table setting and onto the full size, flood lit Championship tennis court. Stepping back into the kitchen, the other adjoining room is the large laundry including a separate shower and toilet all with access to the garden.
Crossing back through the home to the bedroom wing, you pass a northeastern facing office that embraces the view and has a generous built-in bookcase and built-in desk that is three metres long. Opposite the office is a clever three-way bathroom designed to allow family members to be in the bathroom simultaneously yet separately. The claw foot bath and shower are separate from the toilet and the basin-mirror nook is separate from them both.
The bedroom wing has four bedrooms in total including three ample size bedrooms and, at the northeastern end of the wing, one master suite. The three bedrooms all have built-in robes and windows to the north looking out to trees. The master suite has a well-appointed ensuite with a built-in double basin vanity and a window that brings the garden in. The walk-in-robe has skylights throwing extra light onto the shelves and hanging spaces. The master bedroom is king-size with banks of windows to the north and east and views of the swimming pool and trees beyond.
Step from the bedroom wing to the wide eastern terrace and look across the swimming pool. See yet another table setting perfectly positioned on the eastern pool deck to take in the view. This eastern terrace and pool deck are favourite places in summer as they are shaded from the sun by 2pm. In winter this beautiful area is bathed in morning light, as are all the home’s main living and entertaining spaces.
The 2.5 acres is full of surprises. As you walk across established level lawns, you pass under jacarandas and frangipanis and suddenly come across delights such as the citrus orchard where the trees hang heavily with mandarins, lemons, limes and grapefruit. The large level lawn next to the orchard has been the setting of a dinner party for 20 guests lit by lanterns adorning the Moreton Bay Fig tree and surrounding garden. By day, it is the favourite place for games of football.
Walk towards the garden shed and you’ll see the chicken coop with an outdoor run. Fresh eggs are collected every day from the hens. Next to the hens is the vegetable garden filled with herbs, carrots, tomatoes, lettuce and zucchinis. A passionfruit vine creates a wall of green. Head towards the paddock and you’ll see it is cleared to allow bountiful grass to grow yet it is still shaded by gum trees and a Moreton Bay Fig. A whipbird’s distinctive call carries through the trees.
This rare and beautiful property is ready for your family to call home. Just 5 minutes down the road are three state primary schools, two marketplaces and buses to private schools and state high schools. Don’t delay your inspection.
