INNER CITY ABSOLUTE RIVERFRONT
From the moment you enter the 2-storey atrium with a crafted wooden staircase, there?s a satisfying sense of space and room to move. The family size (9m x 6m) lounge with bay windows features a working 1850s marble fireplace, 3.3m ceilings and parquetry flooring. It opens on to a full-length tiled verandah, overlooking the lawn to the river. Step up and dine in style in the formal dining room with its spectacular central domed light and turned wooden railings. There is also a separate informal meals area.
The spacious, airy kitchen boasts an abundance of cupboards with a central island incorporating an exhaust fan over gas hotplates and a preparation bench with powerpoints. There is a double wall oven, s/steel dishwasher, wi pantry and polished boxwood benchtops. The ground floor also contains a study/library and a laundry with s/steel tubs and the convenience of a clothes chute from the upper bathroom. The gabled rumpus room is designed to deflect noise from the rest of the house.
All 5 bedrooms are generously proportioned. The huge master bedroom (9m x 6m) with bay windows, ensuite and wi robes has its own full-length verandah that overlooks the river. 2 other bedrooms also have river views from their own balconies and 1 upstairs bedroom is used as a computer room. There are 2 bathrooms with spas (1 is very large) and a powder room downstairs that can be accessed from the pool area. The 11m saltwater pool with water feature is surrounded by easy-care paving. Lawns stretch down to the riverbank, jetty and a decking area that?s been carefully built around a tree.
At just 1.8km from the City, most facilities ? schools, restaurants, entertainment and Southbank ? are within walking distance. The jetty and deepwater frontage invite a cruise up the river and access to the freeways and 2 coasts is easy.
There is a double garage (and extra carport to the side) off a stamped concrete driveway framed by trees.
Flood-free riverside properties are always in demand. When they are so close to the CBD, they are a rare find. And when that property is a comfortable home of generous proportions, it represents real value in today?s rising market.
