Offered to market for the first time in 24 years, this sprawling 1572m2 estate promises a family lifestyle unlike any other; the ultimate tree change only 5kms from the city.
Suspended high above a flourishing green gully, the unique architecturally renovated home spans three levels and boasts a beautiful tranquil outlook.
Vast expanses of glass encase the interior, creating a sense of being at one with the incredible natural surrounds; a sublime forest of towering Eucalypts, Bamboo, tropical Palms and diverse wildlife.
Soaring vaulted ceilings, exposed brickwork and timber beams give the home a distinctive personality, while fine contemporary finishes infuse its spaces with sophistication and opulence.
A spacious floorplan presents the height of family functionality and versatility. The central open living and entertaining level hosts a designer kitchen with Corian benchtops, butler's pantry and European Miele appliances including standard and steam ovens, microwave and dishwasher. Wall-to-wall bi-folding doors connect the interior with an expansive covered deck which also basks in the lush serene backdrop. Here there is plenty of space for a gourmet outdoor kitchen, BBQ and bar as well as huge lounges and dining furniture.
A beautiful Balinese-inspired pool area adjoins the deck, and features a crystal-clear saltwater swimming pool with authentic poolside entertaining pavilion.
To the rear, pathways wind their way through the lush grounds, creating an outdoor wonderland for children and the young-at-heart! Residents talk of a genuine sense of community in this exclusive pocket, with collective Christmas parties and children running freely through the gully, playing soccer and sharing veggie patches, cubby houses and trampolines.
Back inside, the upper level hosts a separate study plus four built-in bedrooms including the private master with ensuite, walk-in dressing room and a wall of windows framing the treetop vista. Ideal for accommodating extended families, independent children or guests, a fully self-contained lower level encompasses a 5th bedroom, living zone, kitchenette and bathroom.
Featuring reverse cycle air-conditioning throughout, year-round comfort is assured; while a series of thoughtful design elements including louvred windows, Crimsafe screening and opening Velux skylights make the most of fresh cross-breezes.
Additional property highlights include three stunning floor-to-ceiling tiled bathrooms (underfloor heating in main); separate guest powder room, log fireplace in the formal lounge, laundry chute, new poolside eco-decking with 25-year guarantee; double carport plus plenty of space for additional vehicles, a boat, camper or trailer and large workshop/storage room.
An extraordinary address that must be experienced to be fully appreciated, the home sits within catchment and easy walking distance of the coveted Bulimba State School, as well as St Peter and Pauls primary, bus transport and Oxford Street's shopping, dining and entertainment precinct. Just 5km to the CBD, there is swift access to a choice of elite colleges, the Apollo Road or Bulimba City Cats and Gateway Motorway connecting to Brisbane Airport and the Coasts.
