Absolute River Frontage on 2.5 acres - Splendid Family Entertainer on a Grand Scale

Arguably one of Brisbane's most picturesque settings, this exhilarating 10,190m2 estate enjoys absolute, deep river frontage of 55m, and is set amongst expansive lush green grounds, magnificently manicured hedges and meticulously maintained private gardens.

In an elite precinct consistently sought after for its exclusivity, supreme privacy and lifestyle excellence, you can continue to enjoy this large versatile family home as the owners have done for 25 years. Alternatively this substantial property provides an outstanding opportunity to re-develop, sub-divide, or create a state-of-the-art masterpiece (S.T.C.A - Subject to Council Approval).

The immaculate residence provides exceptional entertaining options while impeccably catering to every family requirement. Current day spaces include generous formal dining and separate formal living with dual fireplace. An alfresco deck with auto-sensor awnings overlooks inviting pool and expansive river reach. A modern kitchen with walk-in pantry overlooks casual living and dining opening out to north-east deck plus separate parents' computing area/children's play den provides additional space and functionality.

5 very generous bedrooms (4 built-in) feature on the upper level and offer 2 private wings all with spectacular views. The parents retreat enjoys its own balcony and terrace, large walk-in robe, ensuite and study, while the guest quarters are complete with ensuite.

Downstairs provides a flexible additional rumpus/living area/media room opening onto a patio with retractable roof and spectacular river views, 4th bathroom, separate laundry, fully-acclimatized cellar, substantial storage & 3 car lock-up. Discerning appointments throughout include extensive parquetry flooring, ducted and reverse cycle air-conditioning, security system, 80,000 litre water tanks to maintain the grounds.

At the rear of the home vast, flood-lit terraced grounds greet the wide river and private observation deck showcasing alluring natural surrounds and sweeping river views.

The front of the property presents with 8 guest car parks and a meandering sandstone path offering a versatile alfresco venue for formal or intimate celebrations where lashings of oriental jasmine enmesh the north-south flood lit, full-size tennis court. A unique pavilion fitted with stainless steel barbeque and bench tops makes for a cool, casual entertainment area for relaxed social gatherings or some serious sporting rivalry between friends and family.

An impressive maze of manicured hedges incorporates an elegant cascading water feature, pastel coloured roses and fragrant gardenias. Tall, proud pines provide splendid shady areas and beyond the hedge exists an original fruit orchard. For those who value self-sufficiency, you may wish to nurture and cultivate an incredible vegetable garden. Perhaps you may wish to transform this space to an equestrian area as you are only walking or riding distance to Yarawa Pony Club.

A truly unique opportunity to be enjoyed for years to come!
