RARE GRAND FAMILY HOME ON 1745M2 WITH PANORAMIC RIVER VIEWS
Presenting an enduring quality and unmistakeable craftsmanship, this prestigious and stately residence situated on a prominent 1745m2 allotment in Indooroopilly’s premier street, stands testament to iconic 1970s’ architecture. Opportunities to consider are plentiful; re-imagine and renovate, remove the existing home and design and construct your dream abode atop the spectacularly elevated parcel, or subdivide the land STCA.
With a wide 30m frontage and an optimal north-south orientation, both the living and accommodation levels benefit from good design, with the inclusion of two staircases, vast expanses of glass to take in the river views and a concrete dividing floor that allows no sound transference. Best of all, this extraordinary home is warm in winter and cool in summer.
Connecting to the main house via an arbour covered walkway is a separate double storey building that overlooks the tiled inground pool and floodlit full-sized tennis court, accessible by its own driveway. Purpose-built and utilised previously as a working office space, complete with kitchenette and bathroom facilities, these private quarters could be remodelled to suit a variety of uses.
The formal dining and living areas with adjoining sunken reading room have classic décor styling and an elegant ambience in which to welcome guests. Overlooking the sun-drenched courtyard, the central kitchen with near new appliances and ample storage opens to a spacious casual meals area and air-conditioned family room. A guest bedroom, bathroom, visitor’s powder room and large practical laundry completes the ground floor.
Ascend the stairs to the expansive upper level, a continuation of the quality that would have made this home truly ahead of its time at its construction. There are five built-in bedrooms, two with stunning Brisbane River views. The other three, including the separate parent’s retreat with river facing ensuite and enormous private dressing room, have direct verandah access.
This home is filled with clever storage areas that are hidden from view and the 5kWh solar package curbs all-important energy costs. Security has not been overlooked, with Crimsafe screens and grilles installed throughout. Accommodation for two cars is provided in the large double garage.
Set in an enviable riverside locale within the St. Peter’s and Indooroopilly Golf Club precinct, Glencairn Avenue is home to some of Brisbane’s finest homes. With Indooroopilly’s vast array of amenities and world class retailers at your doorstep, this premium position will never go out of style.
