THE river views from this two-storey home are superb and at their best from the open-plan living area on the first floor.
Here you can dine or relax in the living space with fireplace while watching the glistening water, or sit on the balcony while the wind whispers through the trees and the boats glide by.
You will not miss out when cooking either, given the kitchen has a river outlook along with granite benchtops, breakfast bar, Miele appliances and ample storage.
The first floor also includes a formal dining room, study and the master bedroom.
This room is a wonderful retreat for parents; it too has river views, a large dressing room and ensuite with bath, shower and double vanity unit.
The ground floor is mainly the children’s domain.
It includes four bedrooms with built-in robes and two bathrooms.
A kitchenette is next to a central living area allowing the children and their friends to prepare snacks without having to come upstairs.
A massive library with fireplace, built-in shelving and soaring ceilings is stunning and overlooks the front gardens with lawn and manicured hedges.
The backyard includes an entertaining area, pool, outdoor shower and plenty of lawn where the children can play.
The home’s living spaces are certainly impressive and so are its features, with timber flooring, sandstone feature walls, marble benchtops in the bathrooms, cellar and future provision for a lift.
The secure 1007sq m block also has a courtyard, vegie garden, drying court, double garage and plenty of extra parking.
It is close to the river, St Hilda’s Anglican School for Girls, restaurants and cafes.
