Sophisticated, architecturally-designed home for city living. Blue Chip Location. River Views.The house was designed by acclaimed, multi-award-winning architect Justin O'Neill to provide accommodation for a mature couple and their visiting family members and guests. The house has two separate pavilion wings connected by a gallery-style atrium and an internal courtyard. It has high ceilings, stackable sliding doors and glass louvres throughout providing a wonderful light and airy home.
Upstairs each pavilion has a bedroom with french doors opening on to a large balcony. These bedrooms are separated by a long elevated walkway with a void overlooking a gallery.
The master bedroom has an ensuite and walk-in robe and has picturesque river and distant views.
The second bedroom balcony overlooks the courtyard and has delightful treed suburban views. There is a third bedroom with recessed fluorescent lighting which is currently used as a sewing and hobby room. Both bedrooms have large built-in robes. The main bathroom is located between these two rooms.
The ground floor has a seamless indoor/outdoor flow and river views facilitated by the large three-way sliding doors. There is an elegant central kitchen, formal lounge and dining-room. A terrace deck adjoins the living-room for 'alfresco' dining. The central picture gallery incorporates a striking timber staircase and glass balustrade.
An additional living area with external timber doors is currently configured as a professional office but can be used for other purposes. There is powder room and practical laundry adjacent to this room.
The home has ducted air-conditioning plus additional independent split units in the dining-room, third bedroom and office. The property has full boundary fencing and a monitored internal and external alarm system that provide first rate security.
The house is solidly built in rendered concrete block and steel with western red cedar cladding, decorative aluminium finishes and fibreglass balcony balustrades. This property has always been meticulously maintained to a high standard.
It is situated on an elevated 609m2 block in a very quiet and peaceful cul-de-sac position. The property has very lovely, well-established and mature gardens with lawns, paved paths, lighting, water features and many specimen plants.
Access easements on both sides of the property and an adjoining pedestrian laneway means that the house has no close or overlooking neighbours. It is rare and very special to find a property so close to the city, yet with so much space between it and the neighbours.
Access to the property is easy and direct. There is an exposed aggregate driveway and dual street frontage. There is a large two-car lockup garage that has a workbench incorporating a stainless steel sink and extensive storage. A cantilevered carport provides covered parking for a third car plus driveway space alongside it for a 4th car.
Located in Indooroopilly's most prestigious street, one of Brisbane's most sought after river streets: major amenities including University of Queensland, quality independent and public schools, Indooroopilly Shopping Town, train and bus stations, cinemas, parks and golf courses are all quickly and easily accessed.
First time offered to the market since it was built; this exceptional home will generate strong interest.
