DECADENCE: Is this the best appointed home in Gumdale?
Imagine coming to the end of another busy day at work. You turn to your smart phone or tablet and prepare your home for your imminent arrival. Draw the curtains, dim the lights and cue your favourite music - or have your favourite show already featuring on one of your seven foxtel enabled screens before you even walk in the door. Your perfect home will be waiting for your return……
Perched in the highly sought after Wakefield Park Rise estate on 801sqm this home is idyllically positioned to take advantage of Bayside living whilst offering easy access to the City, airport or Gateway motorway.
Sprawling over two luxurious levels there is an abundance of indoor, outdoor, formal and informal living areas. Upstairs boasts a centralized TV/ lounge room and four incredibly spacious bedrooms (all ensuited with full bathrooms and walk in robes) plus a separate guests room. There is a laundry chute upstairs which delivers the laundry directly to the large, family size laundry downstairs. The master suite is privately separated from the other bedrooms and features remote controlled blinds, TV, standalone bath, floor to ceiling marble finishes and a walk in robe of truly magnificent proportions.
Beyond the keyless entry door downstairs the main foyer boasts solid timber flooring and soaring, squareset ceilings. A large home office, cellar display window, fully automated 7 seat home theatre and marble encrusted powder room all feature on the walk to the main living space - an open plan design that allows the back walls of this grand home to be removed or opened up to provide the ultimate flexibility for indoor or outdoor parties - all the while overlooking the grassy back yard and sparkling inground pool (which is in turn shadowed by a massive 90inch foxtel enabled TV screen!)
The main kitchen is the heart of the downstairs living space. An expansive solid Italian marble island bench promotes conversation while taking advantage of the instant hot or cold water from the zip tap or while cooking with the Ilve appliances (including large induction cooktop, multiple ovens and an integrated dishwasher). A walk in pantry also includes marble benchtops and plenty more space for food or appliances.
Servicing the outdoor living/ entertaining areas is an amazing outdoor kitchen which includes massive BBQ, ice maker and an underbench glass 3 door bar fridge - a perfect poolside complement to enjoy our Queensland climate and lifestyle. A fully appointed external bathroom also services the large, heated inground saltwater pool and outdoor living spaces.
The oversized garage features epoxy flooring and more storage cupboards than imaginable - and in addition to ample space for two cars there is a massive workshop with roller door access to the back yard. A purpose built wine cellar adds a touch of finesse to this generously proportioned family home - with a foyer display window to showcase your finest wines if you so desire!
