Set on a 700m2 block in a quiet Fig Tree Pocket cul de sac estate, “Riverside on Jesmond”, this well laid out single level contemporary residence provides a hidden sanctuary of calm and tranquillity. Strategically designed to provide privacy, as well as family living, this house features multiple living spaces, both internal and external. The layout has an easy flow from section to section with the primary living space opening out onto two separate inside-outside enclosable patios, each overlooking the lush tropical gardens. It has ducted air-conditioning plus fans throughout.
The lengthy open plan kitchen, lounge and dining area has a large island bench and features Miele appliances and pendant lighting that overlooks the everyday dining and family room. The high ceilings and lofty windows, which line the upper walls, direct light into this spacious environment. A built-in study nook concealed behind bi-fold doors adds a versatile touch to the family zone.
Sliding doors open up onto the side patio, which is currently being used as an alfresco dining area, and extends out through sliding doors to the flourishing back garden. This area can also be accessed from the high ceiling formal lounge room. The front patio with dual access from the fourth bedroom and the living room looks out over the idyllic palms and frangipanis.
The four bedrooms are spacious and discretely positioned to provide a sense of privacy and seclusion from one another. The master bedroom “quarters” feature plantation shutters, a large window, an extensive walk-in wardrobe and a private reading nook separated from the main bedroom via a wall with open niches for displaying ornaments. The ensuite is generous with a double sink vanity, private toilet and glassed shower.
There is a large laundry, with ample cabinetry; a long bench top and big sink as well as a separate toilet and hand basin. The laundry has direct access to the external clothesline and best of all, there is a built-in shelf for resting the laundry basket. The remote controlled two-car garage complete with a generous inbuilt storage area has a sleek epoxy resin floor.
Ideally designed to capitalise on the warm Brisbane weather, the property is north facing and captures the winter sun and river breezes. The garden is a sanctuary of green, with a tropical feel as well as a covered vegie patch and herb garden. Set in the family friendly community of Fig Tree Pocket, this beautiful property lies in close proximity to major shopping centres, schools, parks and Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary.
