Twenty Five years ago is the last time this immaculate hill-top property changed hands. The current owners still remember all the reasons they fell in love with the property and are at pains to leave, but now is the time. Here are just a few reason they've stayed so long:

Location:
* In a commanding position, high on the hill the location is the perfect place to take in the significant water and mountain views. The sunsets in this spot are literally to die-for and the view is visible not just from the front balcony but the vast majority of rooms in the home. The elevation and orientation channel the breezes and its not uncommon to hear the sea at night.
* The Peninsula's renowned walking & cycling tracks are just a couple of homes away, yet your new home is located on a quiet street without the "hustle and bustle" of the waterfront traffic.
* The Moreton Bay Boat Club, Scarborough Marina (with its boat ramps), fine dining, Scarborough Village & Beach, even reputable schools are all super close at hand. Walk or drive, it's all close-by.

The home:
* Presents MASSIVE opportunity for someone to build up to even further enhance the views or just love her as she is
* Built in the mid-1970's the home is constructed with a hardwood frame and is of brick and tile construction. Beautiful polished hardwood floors (in amazing condition) really add to the ambience and warmth. The original builders considered the views by adorning the home with over-sized windows and sliding doors, you will not miss the views inside the home. An added advantage is light. Light and bright is an understatement. This home will be perfect for anyone who LOVES natural light.
* The home has been freshly repainted in super-tasteful tones that are right up to the minute
* The kitchen cabinetry has been upgraded and also features premium European appliances that include Asko dishwasher, Asko induction cooking and an Asko self-cleaning pyrolytic oven
* The bedrooms are great for a home of this era, particularly in the front 2 bedrooms "you can really swing a cat".
* Other notable features include: 3kw solar system, security screens & window coverings, 3 x reverse cycle split-system air-conditioners and a very decent double garage PLUS additional off-street parking behind the front gates. The property is fully fenced (great for pets & kids) and being elevated provides outstanding visibility and security.

The Shed
* A 9 x 6 metre (3 bay shed) - with double roller doors is at the rear of the property. Powered (of course), it provides the perfect workshop to tinker to your hearts delight.

The Block, Yard and Neighbourhood
* 627m2 with a WIDE 19.2m frontage** and surrounded by other large blocks the feeling of space & neighbour separation is awesome. Properties in this street (particularly those on the hill) have always been highly-desirable.
* Gardeners will appreciate the big veggie patch, manicured lawns and big back yard with room to grow.
**Note - all dimensions are approximate

So what have I missed? Plenty!
* Like the almost new blinds and window coverings, the owners even tells me the home has been re-plumbed!

What do I think?
* This home is one of the best that I've seen of its era. It doesn't just shine, it sparkles!
* If you are looking for a home where you can just move-in, then this is one that YOU MUST VIEW
* If you'd like to build a new home or lift and renovate to pick up even more substantial water-views then this is one home that YOU MUST VIEW
* If you are seeking value today with great potential for the future, then a home in this location is one that I believe you MUST VIEW

So don't wait, this is a rare offering. Inspections are EASY! Call me today and let's arrange to show you through.
