Prime waterside living with stunning sunsets
THIS canal home offers comfortable living and a relaxed lifestyle on the water.
The four-bedroom property at 126 Griffith Rd, Newport is on a 968sq m block at the end of a deep water, high mast canal.
Owners Helen and Forrester Grayson have loved calling the property home for almost 17 years, but they are ready to downsize.
“The children have moved out and there’s just the two of us now, so it is time,” Mrs Grayson said.
The couple said the home had offered a great lifestyle for their family of four.
“It’s an ideal home for entertaining because of the space outside near the pool and the entraining area overlooking the canal,” Mrs Grayson said.
“It’s a very comfortable home with plenty of room, and we’re very close to the water so it’s easy to go for walks morning and night along the waterfront.
“We used to have a boat and a tinny and I now regularly take the kayak straight out into the canal and I can even go out to the bay.”
Set across two levels, the home has open-plan living, a central kitchen looking out across the alfresco area and canals, and a built-in bar with water views.
Upstairs, the main bedroom has an ensuite and overlooks the canal, while the remaining three bedrooms have built-in wardrobes.
Outside there is an inground swimming pool with separate spa area, a covered entertaining area and plenty of space in the fenced backyard.
The property comes with a triple garage with drive-through bay and additional space for the boat or caravan.
Mrs Grayson said the home was in a peaceful neighbourhood with a park on one side and a larger park across the road.
“We get spectacular sunsets from the end of the canal here. We can watch the sun set over the mountains,” she said.
The property is on the market through Clinton Viertel of Belle Property Redcliffe for offers over $999,000.
