RIVERFRONT LUXURY HOME - 2005 HIA QUEENSLAND HOUSE OF THE YEAR
This is a home that combines textures, materials and shapes with flair and style. Cascading water makes the transition from outdoors to indoors in the impressive entry foyer, with its huge, custom-built wooden front door framed by stark white walls and softened by greenery. (Typical of this home’s attention to detail, the fountain water is ionised, eliminating any chlorine odours normally associated with pool water.)
The home office, wired for the internet and the home’s phone systems, is conveniently close to the front door for easy deliveries, meetings and general access. The living areas are large and uncluttered. A carpeted lounge and dining space looks out to tropical gardens and reflection pools, and a family area flows to an outdoor dining space. Shadows cast by a spectacular trio of coral lights give an extra dimension to the walls and decorative niches of a sitting area. Timber tones in the sleek 2-pac kitchen complement a sandstone feature in an island bench. The kitchen has a double-size pantry, Miele oven, gas cooktop, rangehood, dishwasher, built-in microwave and insinkerator. The rumpus room is fitted with a well-appointed bar. All living areas and outdoor deck are wired for sound from a Bose Lifestyle system.
There are 4 bedrooms and the master suite is spacious, with a soaring ceiling and large balcony that looks out to the tree-lined river. The sumptuous ensuite has his’n’her vanities, a luxury spa and rain shower head. There are 2 fully fitted walk in robes, a sitting area and dressing table area. A second bedroom has views to Kenmore and a third overlooks the gardens. These bedrooms have a wall of built in robes, are of generous size and serviced by an elegant bathroom. The guest suite has expansive river views, a designer ensuite, a large walk in robe and is wired for TV and Foxtel. There is also a powder room.
The home is air-conditioned throughout, has back-to-base security, vacuum-aid services to all rooms and convenient ample storage in the large laundry, linen closet and upstairs storage area. Quality materials used throughout include kwila timber, vitrified designer floor tiles and designer taps, while the staircase features copper tiles and glass balustrades. The large in-ground swimming pool with water feature is surrounded by kwila decks and landscaped gardens. Semi-frameless glass forms a safety barrier around the pool area, while a solid boundary fence provides extra privacy. With a backdrop of river views, the outdoor area is perfect for relaxing or entertaining and there is a grassed area for play with children or pets. The grounds are landscaped and an automatic irrigation system is installed. There is a 3-car garage with auto doors and a handy storage shed at the back. All amenities are easily accessible, with Brisbane just 11kms away and the Gold and Sunshine Coast within commuting distance. Kenmore is recognised as a blue chip suburb and the riverside frontage of this property ensures its investment potential.
