Watch the sun set from your own private ‘resort’ at Indooroopilly
With absolute river frontage and uninterrupted views across the Brisbane River, Debbie and Terry Dodd quickly fell in love with their Indooroopilly home.
The property is on 1086sq m of land in a quiet pocket of the suburb.
“What attracted us to it was the tranquillity, it is just so peaceful here,” Mrs Dodd said.
“And the sunset over the river is just beautiful.”
The terraced property has a resort-style swimming pool and leads down to a private pontoon.
Mrs Dodd said one of her favourite parts of the home was her studio downstairs.
“I love it, I can work down there, and it opens up onto the patio,” she said. “It’s lovely and cool down there in the summer.
“We also spend a lot of time in the sunroom downstairs which also opens out onto a balcony and, in the winter, we spend time in the courtyard.”
The fully renovated Mediterranean-style double-storey home has stately columns, high ceilings, multiple indoor/outdoor living spaces, fully landscaped gardens and stunning river views.
The living areas have views of the river and Mrs Dodd said they could look out their bedroom window across the swimming pool and out to the river.
“The house has such a homey feel and it is comfortable and modern and it has very high ceilings, which I also love,” she said.
There are views from the entry of the home right through to the river.
The entrance is via a courtyard and double timber doors that open on to a foyer that runs the length of the lower level.
Off the foyer is a bedroom, office, a second living area, the kitchen, dining area and the main lounge room, which has an open fireplace with a traditional mantel.
This area, and the dining room, opens on to a balcony with river views.
The kitchen has an ASKO oven, five-burner gas stove and dishwasher, shaker cabinets, Qasair rangehood and plenty of storage space.
The main bedroom is on the lower level and has an ensuite and a walk-in wardrobe. There are two other bedrooms on this level as well as a large media room.
A main bathroom has an island bathtub, waterfall shower and floor to ceiling tiles.
Crimsafe security screens have been installed through the property and there is an alarm system, intercom and automated gate and garage door.
The main bedroom also has a floor safe and the home is air-conditioned and has planation shutters throughout.
