Superb North-facing, riverside residence with a coastal ambience

Reminiscent of a holiday villa, this North-facing, coastal designed, 715m2 riverside residence is superbly placed to overlook the Brisbane River and on through to Hamilton Hill. The remarkable floor plan comes together over two impressive levels, continuing an authentic character charm throughout.

Nestled away at the end of a quiet Bulimba cul-de-sac, framed by towering hedge trees and a quaint front garden, this family home is picture perfect. Adding to the timeless appeal is a classically wrought front door with a charming rounded top.

Saturating the central living areas with natural light are double-length timber doors, proposing an effortless indoor/outdoor design and opening out to reveal the entertaining pavilion at the rear. Captured by the kitchen, living and dining, the lower level is transformed into a breathable and open atmosphere. In the lounge, spacious proportions easily allow for any personal arrangement, while a run of bi-fold shutters offer the chance to keep the lounge open or closed to the foyer.

A beautiful place to entertain, the expansive rear pergola sits adjacent to the in-ground swimming pool and borders the modest backyard. With space in abundance and neighbouring the Brisbane River, this area brings to life a tranquil coastal sunset day in and day out. Utterly peaceful, enjoy an evening wine or morning coffee here while keeping an eye on the kids. A few short steps will bring you to peaceful walks along the river, accessed by the rear gate leading toward the water's edge.

A chef's delight, the gourmet kitchen looks out over the lower pavilion for inspiration and boasts quality Westinghouse appliances plus new stone benchtops. Bringing chic sophistication to the fore are charcoal dual sinks, stylishly matching the soft close cabinetry handles. With both a casual dining setting plus formal area, preparing home cooked meals will be a breeze.

Also on the lower level is a sizable study, ideal for parents who work from home, while completing this floor is a standalone powder room, double lock up garage and dedicated laundry.

The upper level has been crafted as an ideal living retreat, the upper level hosts four generous bedrooms, each with a differing aspect for each member of the family to enjoy.

A luxurious addition, parents will enjoy the look and feel of a holiday-style villa. Timber floors are complemented by timber plantation shutters, while a lavish ensuite features floor-to-ceiling tiling, an elegant standalone porcelain bath, stylish glass shower and a modest his/hers vanity plus mirror. A romantic inspiration, the opulent balcony takes in picturesque views reaching across to Hamilton hill, capturing the nearby Brisbane River with ease. Overlooking the in-ground swimming pool and backyard, this is also a charming spot to keep an eye on the kids.

Bedroom two features shared access to the main balcony, making this room appropriate as an extension of the master, acting as a multi-purpose area. Meanwhile, bedroom three and four share their own Juliet balcony, moderate in size yet with peaceful treetop views of the surrounding suburb and front courtyard.

Completing the upper level is a central family bathroom, appointed with a freestanding glass shower, floor-to-ceiling tiling and porcelain bathtub.

Other notable features include a freshly painted interior, air conditioning throughout, brand-new bathrooms, a linen cupboard on the second level and additional storage beneath the stairs.

An excellent location, a short walk will take you to the Bulimba Golf Club, while only steps will bring you to beautiful walks along the river. Also within easy distance are a plethora of local cafes and eateries along the prestigious Oxford Street, including Thai Legend, Oxford Tap House and Il Molo. Parents will appreciate falling within the catchments of Bulimba State School and Balmoral State High School, while several local parks and sporting clubs will keep the family busy on weekends.

Situated along one of Bulimba's quiet cul-de-sac streets, mere metres from the water's edge and surrounded by amenities, this enviable address is sure to impress. Simply outstanding with an unrepeatable coastal charm, this family home will not last long.
