144 Canipa Point Road, Russell Island QLD 4184 View on map

Type: House

Built for total privacy, this two-storey Hamptons-style home packs a ton of features into a tidy 1459m2 parcel of prime water-frontage, nestled on the acclaimed East-side of Russell Island overlooking the Canaipa Passage.

Views stretch in all directions, but the site has been utilised to its maximum advantage to take-in the splendid vista to the South, past North and South Stradbroke islands, toward the Gold Coast and hinterland, beyond.

From the street, you may just drive straight past as there is no imposing façade or grand entrance to 144 Canaipa Point Drive. Rather, a simple carport behind a privet-hedge wall peeks out to greet you. Don’t be disillusioned by the modest exterior, as once you step through the front door a whole watery world opens-up before you.

Alas, the hidden sanctuary at Mangrove Heights is slowly revealed.

Where to look? Gleaming timber floors throughout guide your eye past the white cabinetry and central kitchen, to the inescapable water views. Boats and birds vie for the best vantage point, but the upper-deck is a sure winner. Imagine breakfast out here, watching the sunrise ease its way above North Stradbroke reflecting golden light on the waterway. Hard not to, once you’ve seen this view.

A well-planned layout places the kitchen as the hub of the open-plan living area, flanked either side by a spacious lounge and dining-cum-office zone, both with sliding-doors to the covered deck. A bedroom bookends each side of the top-level, with the king-size master flowing to the deck and adjacent to the full bathroom, while the other bedroom floats in the distance.

The top-floor provides direct level-access from the carport without a single step in sight. A laundry/utility room is discretely tucked to the left of the entry and offers storage and miles of benchspace for multi-tasking. A stairwell provides safe passage to the lower-floor which comprises a further two bedrooms (or guest suite with extra living area) and another large bathroom. Plus, a full-width covered deck connects you to the backyard and waterside.

Some of the many features on offer, include:

  • fresh paint & sparkling clean
  • loads of windows or sliding doors for natural light & fresh air
  • timber floors for that rich, warm feel
  • crafted cabinetry throughout with VJ feature walls
  • massive decks off both levels
  • glossy white kitchen with large island & marble benchtops
  • Bosch oven & cooktop, LG dishwasher
  • full family bathroom upstairs & another bathroom downstairs
  • ceiling fans, built-ins (lower level)
  • under stair-storage
  • fully accessible top-floor

Mangrove Heights is well-built into the site, with canter-levered decks for optimum space and a reduced footprint on this massive block. A level lawn creates a carpet of green (great for a game of cricket or outdoor entertaining) in front of the lapping shore which traces a well-worn walkway through the low-lying mangroves.

The adjacent old-growth trees provide a majestic canopy and a haven for native fauna, creating a natural buffer between you and the neighbouring property. Privacy is assured here and the location suitable for any keen angler, water-sports enthusiast, artist, or those seeking peace and quiet.

A major advantage is the winding drive that leads to the water; great for launching your kayak or tinnie and transporting large items downstairs. Although, the meandering steps are easy enough to traverse and children will love the freedom of waterfront living.

Other outdoor benefits include:

  • under-house dry storage via door off lower-deck
  • wide stepping-stone pathway
  • level lawn at water’s edge
  • low maintenance yard
  • direct water access
  • privacy & tranquillity provided by nature
  • alternative side-access to yard from front of house via stairs
  • North-East alignment of house for maximum sunshine
  • footpath out front to walk to town
  • Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron a few doors away
  • scope for shed or boathouse

Large picture windows with endless views, balmy breezes and seaside air make for a wonderful lifestyle, floating above Canaipa Passage. You’re far enough from town to feel the calmness, yet close enough for a leisurely stroll as part of your daily regime.

There’s something to be said about island life and being a part of a small community. It’s like going back in time, where people still look out for each other and give a friendly wave as they pass you in the street. You’ll feel the genuine camaraderie when you join the Canaipa Point precinct and get to know the locals, wondering why you never made the move sooner.

If you’re after a quality home with nothing extra to do, this property is certainly a contender. From its crisp white exterior with charcoal and black trimmings, you can’t go past this amazing seaside sanctuary. You’ll connect to the space and harmony it bestows immediately, feeling a magnetic pull to the waterside and your new relaxed life.

To make this home your happy place, call Chris McGregor on 0420 555 997. You’ll be more than satisfied with this outstanding purchase.
