House Sold - HERSTON QLD

Framed by lush native gardens, and boasting panoramic city, suburb and golf course views, this striking architecturally-designed family home sits on a generously-sized parcel of elevated land, in a tightly-held, inner-city pocket of Herston.

They say ‘location is everything’. This is everything!

Victoria Park Golf Course, Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital Complex, Kelvin Grove State College, QUT Kelvin Grove Campus and Urban Village, Ballymore, St Joseph’s College (Terrace) and the Brisbane Grammar Schools are literally a stone’s throw away. The CBD is a 5 minute commute, down hill! It just doesn’t get any better than this.

‘Captivating views and magnificent breezes’ sum up the essence of this inviting home, with decks and courtyards on both levels offering relaxing locations and vantage points to take in the city skyline and golf course views.

Set over two relaxed levels of living, this versatile contemporary residence offers great separation of living for the busy family, maximising space and privacy. Cascading terraced gardens and lawns, and a sparkling pool, complete the lifestyle on offer …. a true inner city oasis!

Entering from the street, a welcoming courtyard surrounded by flowering herb gardens draws you into the home, where immediately your eye is drawn to the soaring architectural ceilings and high feature windows that stream sunlight into the home.

Open-plan living and dining spaces on this level create the heart of the home and flow effortlessly between the entry courtyard and the expansive entertaining deck at the rear with those views! … views to the city, views over the suburb and over the golf course … and views below over the terraced lawns and refreshing pool.

The upper deck flows along the rear of the home to the master bedroom, providing a private balcony area to take in the views and capture the beautiful breezes …. a perfect spot for your morning coffee or an evening tipple.

Centrally located, to service both the entertaining deck and the private front courtyard, the kitchen is well suited for day-to-day family living, boasting granite bench tops, filtered water, an ILVE gas cook top with teppanyaki plate, SMEG oven, Miele dishwasher, a breakfast bar and a convenient kitchen servery opening out through bi-fold windows to the courtyard garden. Breakfast in the garden … just perfect!

Three bedrooms can be found on this upper level. The master bedroom features an ensuite, walk-in robe and private balcony. Two additional built-in bedrooms also capture amazing views and breezes, and are serviced by a family bathroom.

The laundry nearby provides access to the drying court and front courtyard, and also offers convenient separate side access to the home.

Downstairs is perfect for teenagers, with two spacious bedrooms flanking a light-filled rumpus area, and an extra large study (or 6th bedroom) that opens out onto the lower entertaining terrace, providing another separate access point. All bedrooms are complete with built-in-wardrobes and capture the magnificent breezes that come up through the valley. They are serviced on this level by a family bathroom, with shower and toilet.

Access to the pool and gardens are via this level. Grand stone steps lead to the lush level lawns which further lead down to the large pool surrounded by native gardens and shaded by beautiful gum trees … a private sanctuary for enjoying lazy summer days with family and friends. Float in the pool and look up at the trees. How can this be inner city? Such an oasis!
