Purposefully designed with the changing needs of families in mind, this five-bedroom home makes juggling the demands of busy life so easy. Boasting refined interiors, a magnificent in-ground swimming pool and incredible entertainment options, this residence enjoys an elevated position on the high side of Buckingham Street. It makes the most of every inch of the 771sqm allotment, affording privacy, peace and security, while also capturing breezes and views of Mount Coot-tha.
Showcasing a contemporary façade, the home has been finished to the highest quality. Solid spotted gum floors connect the ground floor spaces. Wall-to-wall glass sliding doors dramatically expand the living space and afford incredible flow from the kitchen and dining space directly to the outdoor living, swimming pool and rear yard – giving the whole space a resort-like feel.
The bespoke modern kitchen hosts best-in-class appliances including a Neff double oven, a Highland gas cooktop, a Qasair rangehood and a Miele integrated dishwasher. Completed with automated skylights, an oversized breakfast bar and extensive 2Pac cabinetry, this culinary space is a delight to entertain in.
The adjacent covered al fresco area encompasses an outdoor kitchen with a built-in barbecue and a bar fridge. A fully-fenced grassed rear yard benefits from established gardens and a saltwater in-ground swimming pool.
Also on this level is the living-dining area, plus a number of flexible spaces for a home office as well as a parents retreat with private outdoor deck and a rumpus or games room. A large main bathroom and a fifth/guest bedroom fitted with a built-in robe completes this level.
The upper level showcases a master suite with a walk-in robe, an ensuite and a private balcony. The three double bedrooms finished with built-in robes are serviced by another full bathroom, which has a separate bath, shower and toilet.
Louvred windows are found throughout the upper level. An intercom system, a laundry chute and extra storage are some of the many thoughtful features tucked below the surface of the home. Add in the bonus of super-fast cable NBN, a 30,000 litre underground rainwater tank and a huge solar power system and storage battery to power your home and car and it is easy to see the appeal of this contemporary home.
Complete with a secure dual garage, ceiling fans, ducted and zoned air-conditioning throughout, an integrated sound system, intercom, automated driveway gates, a security alarm system and zoned automated sprinkler system, the property ensures that there is nothing more to do here but enjoy the lifestyle that this sought-after Saint Johns Wood enclave affords.
Close to shops, dining options and leafy parklands, this exceptional residence falls within the Ashgrove State School and The Gap State High school catchment areas. Marist College is a short walk away and Mount Saint Michael’s College and Mater Dei Primary are also nearby.
