Type: House

Fancy living on the banks of Krummel Passage with Jock Kennedy Park and nature on your doorstep?

This fully renovated 2-bedroom home is surrounded by a living rainforest and offers water views from two of the extensive North-facing decks. There’s two amazing bathrooms, an enormous kitchen, study area, tons of storage and an intuitive floorplan that keeps the energy flowing in this inviting home.

Cradled in the gentle waters of the North-end, directly opposite Karragarra Island, you’ll find this substantial home on 673m2 of landscaped gardens, just a few steps from the meandering boardwalk to the shops and ferry. You can guarantee, 12 Douglas Street lives up to its promise of a tranquil lifestyle with privacy and all-day sunshine.

From the short street of a select few neighbours (they are all wonderful!), take the gravel driveway to the right, just before the water’s edge, to arrive at your new home. The 6x3m2 shed in the backyard can be converted to a garage and the magical fairy-forest is a children’s paradise with lacy overhanging branches, gracious palms and a Moreton Bay Fig.

Imagine, the adventures that await in this tropical hideaway?

This sturdy oyster-and-ocean-blue Hardiplank residence, reflects the abundant waterways of Moreton Bay Marine Park, fringed in emerald and jade parklands for the shorebirds to call home. You’ll feel safe and nurtured in this gabled-roof construction, with all living downstairs and sleeping, upstairs.

Through the front gate and onto the full-width porch, you can smell the fresh sea-air and feel the warm energy envelope you.

Step inside and witness:

  • easy breezy open plan living
  • blonde vinyl floors
  • modern antique-white kitchen with breakfast bar
  • room for 8-seater dining
  • lounge with air con & ceiling fan
  • French-doors that open onto screened entertaining deck with views
  • study nook under the open-tread stairwell
  • bathroom that flows to East-facing deck (great for backyard access)
  • storage space & outdoor concealed laundry
  •  boats on the bay at end of street

There’s so much living to be had in this home and the seamless flow to the outdoor covered-deck extends the space, twofold. No matter the weather, you can always be assured of views from the deck and a breeze off the water.

The kitchen is so spacious and has:

  • endless storage & benchspace
  • 3 banks of wide three-stacker drawers
  • breakfast bar for 6
  • gas cooktop & electric oven
  • dishwasher
  • space for island bench
  • room for dancing while cooking

The quirky bathroom is tucked behind the kitchen and past the stairwell. It provides double-access, servicing both indoors and outdoors, via a sliding-door from the deck. Very clever! The pebbled floor offers an instant foot-massage when you go to the loo or want a shower. The rainwater shower-head, above-bench sink and detailed tropical tile-frieze make you feel relaxed, as does the tranquil rainforest peering through glass doors.

Continue upstairs, taking-in:

  • gallery wall-space for your art
  • rich timber floorboards
  • repeated sensual pebble floors in bathroom-2
  • water views from both oversized bedrooms
  • private access to timber deck
  • bedroom-1 with romantic soaking bath
  • air-con & fans
  • large sliders & windows for sunshine
  • built-ins
  • ambiance of the cosy retreat-space

This sleeping zone is conducive to rest and relaxation with a private deck for daytime lounging, or evening nightcap while studying the stars—great place for a telescope! While the bathroom services both bedrooms with a shower and toilet, the master suite does have a bonus bathtub for soaking away the day, or regenerating in a salt-bath while gazing at the water.

The balance of living downstairs and relaxation upstairs, works well! Perfect for professionals sharing; a young family (bedroom-2 easily accommodates two sets of bunk beds, enough for all the kids); or retirees looking for easy access to all island facilities.

Outdoors, there’s:

  • level lawn area
  • natural Poinciana-canopy for your sun umbrella
  • no neighbours behind
  • off-street parking
  • under-house storage for mower, bikes & camping gear
  • septic & trenches at rear
  • fenced at front
  • gas hot water
  • tall gums for shade & habitat
  • water views

The peacefulness of this quiet area is mimicked by nature, with birdsong and ferry toots the only competing noise. A level walk to nearby parks and recreational spaces extends your backyard, offering the facilities of Jock Kennedy Park for entertaining and RICArts for your creative pursuits.

Why not launch your boat from the public boat-ramp at the end of the street, or moor the yacht in the passage to keep a watchful eye? Fancy a game of tennis, need a morning yoga stretch, or want to kick a ball around with the kids? The sporting fields and resilience centre (BIMSARA) are just across the road, for enjoying a healthy well-rounded lifestyle!

No need for a car here, when cycling or walking will have you anywhere, within minutes.

12 Douglas Street truly is a special home, with water views and room to grow.

If you want to take advantage of this location, lifestyle and limited opportunity, call Chris McGregor on 0420 555 997 to secure your future, today.
