About our home

Only 5km from Brisbane's CBD you will find our tranquil and luxurious haven . Completely renovated in September 2015 with luxe designer interiors and quality furnishings that make this property an absolute pleasure be in. The residence is spacious and yet exudes a homely feel from the moment you step inside.

There is room for every family member to find a quiet place to enjoy. The sound-proofed media room is a great space for the kids or the whole family to enjoy free cable TV, Netflix. Should you be yearning for a quiet spot with a peaceful outlook to just rest or read a book, the library will be a welcome retreat. There is also a designated yoga/meditation area in the library with a luxurious silk floor rug, encouraging you to stop and sit and take a moment.

Every bedroom is unique with brand new furniture and bedding. With beautiful linens and the best quality mattresses money can buy, you are guaranteed a peaceful night's sleep. Each bedroom has its own bathroom, however, the master ensuite is truly the standout in this home. Surrounded by a beautiful garden with a canopy of frangipani trees, it contains a freestanding claw foot bathtub with an indoor/outdoor wet room and double shower. The perfect place to recouperate and pamper yourself at the start and end of every day.

Bedding configuration:
Master bedroom and ensuite (king)
Second bedroom and ensuite (queen)
These rooms are very close to each other, perfect for those with young children.

Third bedroom and ensuite (queen)
Fourth bedroom with bathroom (queen)

The home has fully zoned ducted air-conditioning and heating for your comfort.
Unlimited Wi-Fi.
All bathrooms contain underfloor heating and heated towel rails for your comfort during winter.
We have a housekeeper that cleans the home twice weekly. Additional daily weekday housekeeping may be available upon request.

If you're a keen cook like myself, you will love the cook's kitchen, a joy to use. There is a dual oven and 7 burner cook top as well as a tepanyaki grill. Should you wish to live like a real Queenslander, you can cook up a storm on the Webber BBQ or create your own home made wood fired pizza's in the magnificent pizza oven. No need to stress about the dirty dishes, there are two dishwashers and a butlers pantry to help make cleaning up a breeze.

With the serenity of the neighboring parkland and only one neighboring home, you can be forgiven for thinking you were in the Australian bush, however, you are only 5km from Brisbane's CBD in one of Brisbane's most exclusive and sought after enclaves. The resort style gardens provide a welcome escape with a gorgeous swimming pool and poolside cabana to while away the days or simply invigorate you in the early morning or at the end of the day.

We are very lucky to have our own children's playground just 20 metres from the house in the park on our backyard. We have footballs and soccer balls to use at the soccer nets right behind our home, totum tennis pole, some pool toys, floaty rings and a lounger. We have some young childrens toys and lots of kids books. For the older kids, there is an X-BOX 1 with games (age 15+ only but feel free to bring your own too).

We especially welcome anyone with a disability. Our home is completely disability friendly with a chair lift to access the upstairs bedrooms, media room and library.

We have a loyal 10 year old spoodle named Jerry. If you are a keen dog lover, we would be happy to share him. Alternatively, he will happily go to his grandma's house.

We would be happy to consider a vehicle swap as part of a simultaneous house swap only.

Take a five minute stroll along the Enogerra Creek bikeway which is on our doorstep and you will find yourself at the famed Northey Street Organic Markets. Open from dawn 'til midday, you can have yourself the best organic coffee and breakfast in town before grabbing some fresh produce to take home with you.
If you're feeling a little more adventurous and wish to explore inner city Brisbane on two wheels, there are two adult bicycles to use. From our front door you can commence your ride exploring Brisbane's natural wildlife habitat and even make your way into the Brisbane CBD. Alternatively, buses and trains are just a short 3 min stroll away or quick cab or Uber ride will have you enjoying all of what our beautiful city has to offer in just minutes.
Beautiful Brisbane is the perfect location to explore our magnificent and world renowned beaches on the Gold Coast and the Sunshine coast. Our family spends many weekends taking day trips to either coast, both only under an hour's drive away. Brisbane itself, is gaining a reputation as Australia's burgeoning foodie hot spot and has evolved into a mature, progressive and sophisticated city with amazing cultural institutions. The city's pride and joy is it's cultural hub South Bank where you will find the Gallery of Modern Art, Queensland Art Gallery, Queensland Museum, Sciencecentre, State Library along with of course South Bank's inner-city beach, wonderful markets and a plethora of restaurants and bars.
