2 Browning St Russell Island, QLD Virtual Tour View on map

Deep water, off-grid brick house on Canaipa Point with crab pots out the front and conservation zone adjoining—who’d have thought?

Direct access to your private beach, or boat-ramp at water’s edge from the drive-through garage/workshop, ensures fresh seafood every day.

Cast a line; light the wood-fire BBQ; take a warm soak in the outdoor bath-house after a day’s gardening; or just enjoy the ever-changing water view of this natural eco-system.

If you’re after a completely off-grid lifestyle—8kw solar with battery backup; multiple water-tanks (26k litre capacity); solar hot water; new trenches and septic recently serviced—this permaculture existence with repurposed timber, wrought iron and hardware throughout, could all be yours.

The entry foyer downstairs is flanked by a guest bathroom and office/cellar/darkroom. Sliding doors and picture windows connect you to outside and the endless views. Extensive under-stair-storage leads to the tiled rumpus with bar and guest bedroom. Potential for dual occupancy (subject to council approval).

A timber staircase takes you upstairs where the view widens. There are glass sliders encircling the entire home providing lofty breezes, excellent cross-flow ventilation and water views to Straddie.

Vinyl wood-look floors, air-con and ceiling fans allow for easy waterfront living, while an automatic climate-controlled roof-ventilation system maintains an ambient temperature. Multiple pet-doors allow on-demand convenience.

Main bedroom has air-con, walk-in-robe and doors to the deck for that sunrise breakfast or evening nightcap. Two further bedrooms (both with built-ins; one opening to deck) share the large bathroom. The adjoining loo and separate oversized laundry provide option to convert to family bathroom, utilising existing bathroom as ensuite from main.

Massive open-plan living and dining with breakfast-bar overlooking the Canaipa Passage. Enormous cheerful kitchen with gas cooktop, induction panel and Smeg wall oven. Timber benchtops and handmade pebble splashback to sink.

Fish direct from the huge deck with a covered and open entertaining area, or take the stairs to the waterfront and cool-off in the converted saltwater spa-pool.

An established veggie garden with compost heap, potting bench, water-tank and garden shed, provide your all-year food bowl. Kitchen staples like ginger, garlic, chilli, lemongrass, Kaffir lime and avocado abound, complementing any seafood dish.

Shady fruit trees offer a tropical fruit-salad dessert: fresh mulberry, passionfruit, mango, banana, coconut, papaya, Tahitian lime and pineapple; a pinch of cardamom; a dash of lemonade; topped with Panama berries and grapes.

Be sure to fill your plate from this smorgasbord offering.

Don’t risk a place at the table, call Chris McGregor on 0420 555 997.
