Unit Sold - ST LUCIA QLD


Nestled in a quiet and leafy cul-de-sac, a mere stones-throw from the world-class facilities of the University of Queensland’s St. Lucia campus, ‘Macquarie Place’ will capture your heart with its absolute riverfront position and panoramic views. Located on the fifth floor of a grand and nostalgic 1980’s residence, this 3-bedroom apartment is perfect for those seeking convenience, location and that highly-coveted waterfront lifestyle.

Carefully manicured lawns and lush garden beds border the winding paved pathway into the foyer, where you will be greeted with your first glimpse of the riverfront.

Prepare to be delighted as you step into the spacious and light-filled open-plan living and dining room, with its soothing neutral palette, parquetry flooring, and custom cabinetry. Floor-to-ceiling glass doors in the lounge create a seamless transition to the balcony, where your eyes will be immediately drawn to the panoramic sweeping views showcasing the mountain vistas of Mount Coot-tha, and the city lights peeking through the towering gumtrees. The perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee or an evening tipple and watch the CityCats cruise on by.

The sleek, modern kitchen will be sure to impress you with its herringbone-patterned splashback, ample bench space, large pantry, undermount sink, glass ceramic cooktop, new oven and 40mm stone bench-tops. There is plenty of room for the whole family to sit at the gorgeous timber breakfast bar!

The bedrooms are located off a private hallway, allowing for separation of living and privacy. Featuring lush new carpets, ceiling fans, air-conditioning and access to a second shared balcony, the elevated position of the apartment affords water views and city glimpses from each room.

Bedrooms are serviced by a sparkling family bathroom; complete with bathtub, large separate shower and separate toilet. Enjoy a soak in the tub or the luxury of the roomy shower with its ‘satinjet’ showerhead, custom sliding-glass screen and designer tapware. Adjoining the main bathroom is the functional and separate laundry, linen press and supply closet. The home features a multitude of storage spaces for all your family’s needs.

The master bedroom offers a spacious retreat from the rest of the home, with its modern ensuite, air-conditioning, walk-in-robe and whilst it also catches water and city glimpses, its high windows capture a view of the classic beauty of the sandstone buildings of the nearby St. Lucia UQ campus.

The complex showcases a recently refurbished open-air swimming pool bordered with sandstone paving and glass balustrade flowing onto the lush lawn of the riverbank. The pool deck is serviced by a powder room, with both shower and toilet facilities and sauna.

A remote, double lock-up, 2 car garage can be found on basement level, with your very own set of separate storage lockers located near the basement elevator entrance.
