Perched riverside, this Brisbane Corso home is privy to a leafy outlook and sparkling river views. Beyond the white picket fence, this updated Queenslander oozes charm.

From the pitched gabled to the quintessential front verandah, this home is brimming with old-world character. Natural light streams in through original casement windows, illuminating the open-plan living area upstairs. A wash of cool grey paint breathes life into the shiplap paneling that lines the walls, while crisp white accents make the home feel light and modern. 

Clean lines rule this home, with stretches of hardwood floors and the wall panelling creating the illusion of an even larger space. Wainscotting adorns the lofty ceilings in the formal dining room, only adding to the elegance that this home exudes. Sleek and grand in stature, an ultra modern fireplace resides in the formal dining, adding contemporary edge to the otherwise traditional home. 

The contemporary shaker-style kitchen is the perfect fusion of antiquated charm and modern functionality. Striking platinum accents are peppered throughout the space, giving pause from the glossy white cabinetry and smooth stone benchtops. Two sprawling patios book end this home, providing equally appealing aspects. The front is enveloped in lush foliage, while the rear has access to stunning river views. This excess of space calls for entertaining, long lunches or cocktail parties spend gazing out at the water. 

Three light filled bedrooms are located upstairs, each with robes and sweeping views of the tranquil greenery below. The master bedroom resides downstairs, sharing the space with a separate office and lounge area. Made for modern elite, the master bedroom boasts two walk-in-robes, as well as a sumptuous ensuite with a free-standing bath. Through elegant French doors, a private terrace and garden completes the master suite.
