Breathtaking family oasis
Tucked away in a peaceful, leafy street just 5kms from the CBD, this stunning family home offers luxury and serenity in a great inner-city location.
With an unassuming street frontage, you'd be forgiven for thinking this home just a renovated worker's cottage, but upon stepping through the front door you'll realise just how much work has gone into making this a true masterpiece. High quality modern updates blend perfectly with the original timber floors, VJ walls and ornate plaster ceilings in a blend of the best of both worlds, and an entire second level has been installed underneath to create an expansive family residence.
The upper level of the home plays host to three well-sized bedrooms, with the master room coming complete with wall-to-wall built-in wardrobes, a separate walk-in robe and a lavish ensuite with spa bath. The other two bedrooms have secondary access to the large main bathroom along with their own attached studies, making them perfect for high school-aged children. On this level you'll also find a sunroom and central living room, providing plenty of living space along with great customisability. All bathrooms feature quality Villeroy & Boch vanities and toilets and Travertine tiles throughout.
The lower level of the home provides a fourth large bedroom with attached study, ideal for use as a guest space or a teenager/university-aged retreat. A tv room/library with built-in bookshelves can be closed off from the rest of the level and offers a unique space perfect for a media room, office, dedicated retreat or guest/fifth bedroom. This level flows towards the exceedingly spacious living, kitchen and dining area that makes full use of the floor space to create a brilliant open plan living experience. The kitchen provides an expanse of space and high-quality appliances (including Falcon Professional+ FX90 dual fuel cooker) and is an entertainer's dream thanks to the central location and BOSE Wi-Fi sound system. Ceiling fans and aircon ensure this space can be kept in climate-controlled comfort no matter the time of year.
Bifold doors open out to the home's centrepiece backyard oasis including a sparkling heated family pool featuring an automatic floor cleaning system and enviroswim fresh water system. A raised poolside terrace overlooks a lush green backyard and the parklands beyond. This space combines perfectly with the open plan lower level to create an excellent indoor/outdoor living environment, ideal for entertaining or simply enjoying with your family. With lots of wildlife to adore you won't believe you are only 10 minutes to the city, listen to the birds chirping or the kookaburras laughing, it's your very own inner city nature retreat.
The ground floor plays host to a large outdoor room which opens out onto the back lawn, with a mass of storage cupboards this space could be utilised as a separate recreational area, home gym, teenage retreat, man cave or secondary entertaining space.
The home has access to some great nearby features that you and your family are sure to make the most of. Newmarket Village is a 2 minute drive away and offers shopping, dining and cinema experiences. Corbie Park is literally just beyond the backyard and provides plenty of opportunity for weekend activities, with bike rides along Enoggera Creek Bikeway an absolute must. St Ambrose's School is a short walk up the road, while other great schools such as Newmarket State School and Kelvin Grove State College are easily accessible by car or local bus. Proximity to Newmarket Road ensures easy travel into the CBD along with quick access to RBWH, Herston Quarter, Southbank and the tunnels.
