Architect designed Griffin and Knowlman House - Property ID: 779464 54
Double front doors welcome you into the foyer of this tasteful and well-proportioned home. It has a wonderful sense of flow between formal, informal and outdoor entertaining areas making it perfect for small parties or a crowd. Large expanses of glass are used throughout giving an open and airy feel. It has been designed to provide space, separation and privacy for family members
The kitchen and family meals area make up the heart of this property. It overlooks the pool so you can watch the children while preparing snacks and meals, and you won't be isolated from guests while entertaining outdoors. The laundry room which has ample storage and bench space for folding and/or sewing etcetera is also located nearby.
This zone cleverly separates the formal living areas, master bedroom and office from the children's wing which comprises three built-in bedrooms, a bathroom and a separate toilet and vanity area.
Linked to this wing is the large family room which features a vaulted timber ceiling. The room's wet bar also has access to the barbeque area - great for pool parties during the summer months and a slow combustion fire at the opposite end of the room will warm the whole family on cold winter nights.
A leafy covered courtyard off the formal lounge and dining rooms creates a peaceful atmosphere while raked ceilings, an open fire place and pendant lights add drama.
The master bedroom has large windows, generous built-ins and is spacious enough to take a king size bed and a cozy chair for those times when you just need a quiet place to read. Alternately there's enough room for a cot and a nursing chair so that newborns can be close by. The adjacent ensuite has direct access to the pool via a small courtyard.
This home is nicely elevated and set well back from the road in a quiet neighbourhood. At the end of the street you'll find Creekside Park which is almost 6 hectares and a popular place to exercise. The park also has a children's playground, cricket and activity spaces and a wood barbeque.
Features that are major benefits of this property are fully ducted reverse cycle air-conditioning, 24 solar panels, a commercial grade irrigation system and water tanks. Buses to Indooroopilly and the city are just a short walk away, and school charter buses operate from the same stop.
