About this listing
Ferny Hills is quickly becoming a highly sought after suburb, thanks to its leafy surrounds, proximity to the City and a real sense of community. The home is in an elevated position on a very quiet street ensuring you can take full advantage of the outdoor areas, with beautiful breezes and nothing but birds to listen to.

Just metres from the front of the property you'll find a walkway leading to Wightman Reserve and Cabbage Tree Creek, perfect for leisurely morning strolls or an active start to the weekend. Brian Battersby Reserve and Park are just as close with several more walkways in the area helping you achieve the stress-free and active lifestyle you've been searching for.

From the street you'll find a proud double storey brick home with two covered car spaces and well established landscaped gardens. A small, inviting foyer as you enter the home allows you an area to put down your keys, take off your shoes and shake off the worries of the day. To the right, a light and airy living room with vaulted ceilings and stunning plantation shutters. The neutral colours throughout the space provide a fresh and relaxing feel. Coupled with tiled floors (found throughout the entire first level) and a Mitsubishi Electric air-conditioner you'll always have a cosy-cool space to relax in front of the television after a hard day's work.

Whether it's teens plugging away at their homework at the table or the whole family sitting down to eat at meal times the dining room allows for seamless living; connecting the living and kitchen areas. The kitchen is light and breezy with ample storage, a Miele dishwasher, gas cooktop and electric oven. But honestly, in this home, the kitchen's features are hard to take in when your eyes are inadvertently drawn to the beauty of the outdoors. Oversized windows provide a beautiful vista of the leafy backyard and the stunning entertainment deck. Doing the dishes could soon become your favourite past time.

But before you make a V line to the glass double doors opening out on to the deck let's continue the tour of the home...

Adjoining the kitchen is a generous light-flooded open space. Separated from the living area it would provide a quiet escape with enough space for a desk, bookcase and comfortable reading chair. There is also a bright and airy laundry and separate toilet, perfect for when you entertain guests ~ which you are sure to do when you discover the multi living spaces available to you.
It's through the next door that you may want to let your imagination run free. Welcome to the double garage, which is currently being utilised by the present owners as a multi-functional art and music room! Those with young children would find the space valuable as a large play room. And as your family grows you'll appreciate the opportunity to turn this additional living area into a teenager's retreat (did you know that young adults are living in the family home longer than ever before?!)

The second floor is where everyone will rest their heads at the end of the day, with four spacious bedrooms, a bathroom and separate toilet. Each bedroom features carpet, ceiling fans and has an impressive outlook out to the tops of surrounding palm trees. The master bedroom features a walk-in robe and simple, modern ensuite. The main bathroom, servicing the other bedrooms, has a separate bath and shower, perfect for young families.

Now for the piece de resistance... the awe inspiring back yard. As you open the back doors you'll immediately step out onto the spacious covered entertainers deck, which will undoubtedly have your family enjoying this outdoor living space all-year round. Dedicated entertainers will be sure to embrace the beautiful Queensland climate by combining the inside comforts with entertaining outdoors with more than enough space for a dining suite and BBQ and fitted with contemporary lighting to ensure you and your guests can enjoy the pleasant surrounds of your outdoor landscape all night long. This well-designed entertainment deck will be sure to impress your friends and family as it overlooks the rest of the stunning back yard with well-established tropical gardens and a sparkling in ground swimming pool!
