Catch of the day at Maroochydore

WHEN you live on the river you need to be able to use the river. This well-designed two-level home allows you to do just that.

Gated from the street, cotton trees and casuarinas are the only thing between you and the water. There is room to park the boat, the surf ski or the kayak, and ample space for the crab pots. You are only one kilometre from the boat ramp.

A large balcony with timber deck juts out from the sleek abode, offering two extra car undercover car spaces out from the double garage. This elevated deck catches the breezes as well as the outlook. Stylish from the outset, only a few beams in the garage ceiling and one or two walls remain of what was effectively a full rebuild.

Timber stairs to the side lead you up to the entry, where a light and bright interior offers open-plan living with charming water views. Timber floorboards float underfoot, across to wall-to-wall stacker doors from the living and media area to the north-facing balcony. Out here is more than four metres by seven metres of prime entertaining space.

The tops of Mt Ninderry and Mt Eerwah are directly in front, the treed riverbanks are over on the north shore, and the Maroochy river shopping centre is a few hundred metres away.

Split-system air-conditioning cools the space within. An immaculately-finished kitchen is host to a modern palette of light Caesarstone benches, and crisp aqua glass splashbacks.

It features a Bosch stainless steel dishwasher, 900mm underbench Technika oven and five-burner gas cooktop.

A roll-down appliance cupboard and pull-out pantry are integrated with glossy white, two pac-cabinetry.

A shower with washbasin and separate toilet open off the hallway, which continues to the rear of the home.

Timber floors continue into the bedrooms. These are nice and light with white venetians and stainless steel ceiling fans.

The main bedroom is cool and spacious, opening to a private, screened back deck.

This overlooks the lush back lawn with golden cane palms surrounding.

A fully-tiled ensuite has a spa bath, twin circular wash basins and separate corner shower. Downstairs is tiled into a rumpus room with wet bar and sit-up bench. Sliding windows act as servery to the back entertaining deck and lawn.

Glass stackers open to allow easy indoor/outdoor living.

Sleek white cabinetry completely conceals the washing machine and laundry shute, in a laundry that is more like a bathroom.

It has a large porcelain tub, semi-frameless glass on the shower, plus a toilet and side access.

There is another carpeted bedroom on this lower level, with plenty of storage.

It's a clever configuration which lends itself just as well to entertaining, as it does to a variety of living arrangements.
