56 Barcelona Terrace, Russell Island QLD 4184 View on map

Type: House

A one-minute drive from Russell Island Boat Ramp, with filtered bay views from the top deck and space for all your toys – this Spanish beauty will have you ‘livin’ la vida loca’ with cash to spare.

With 56 Barcelona Terrace, you can have your cake and eat it, too. Sitting pretty on a tranquil corner block, she’s in a prime location, still within easy reach of Russell Island’s growing business precinct for all your daily needs (supermarket, school, pool, library, cafes, etc) yet surrounded by un-crowded homes and bush blocks, and literally a stone’s throw from the water’s edge. With great elevation on the second storey, you’re right amongst the surrounding eucalypt canopy, beyond which the glittering waters of Canaipa Passage and the distant slopes of Stradbroke Island beckon. Did I mention the fishing is unreal in these parts?

Yet she won’t break the bank, either. Ditch the crippling mainland mortgage for an idyllic island life that costs less, not more. Imagine catching the ferry home from work (it sure beats traffic!), pulling in while the sun’s still shining, hooking the tinnie up to your car, throwing a six-pack and some tackle in the back, and watching the sunset over Barcelona Terrace while you’re floating in the bay without a care in the world.

Built in the 90s, this home has good bones, with the original kitchen and bathroom still in full working order. Though not especially modern, the quality kitchen appliances mean that renovating is an option, not a necessity. Keep things simple and move right in, or replace the entry wall with a brand new kitchen island and it’s not hard to picture a modern, open-plan kitchen/living/dining area emerging from this promising space. Those good bones are already beautifully exposed by the vaulted ceiling, accented by stainless steel fans and pendant lights. Plenty of glass on the three external walls brings the outside in – or step onto the spacious, recently-upgraded deck to soak up some sun.

Off the kitchen, a carpeted hallway leads to the bathroom and two bedrooms. The master bedroom is outfitted with a spacious walk-in robe and sliding glass door leading directly to the deck. Throw an outdoor lounge in the corner and your morning coffees might just turn into an all-day al fresco brunch as you watch the wind tickle the palm trees in the low-maintenance front yard.

The second bedroom is light-filled thanks to two large windows, well-placed to catch cooling night breezes. A built-in wardrobe provides ample clutter-free storage.

Just steps away from both bedrooms is the bathroom, a classic 90s fit-out that’s still in good working order. Like the kitchen, thanks to the build quality, we’re talking touch-ups, not a total overhaul, in order to bring it up to date.

Downstairs, there’s a double garage and a carport, so bring your boat, bring your caravan and, hey, whatever other hobbies you please – behind the garage is a generously-sized storage room that could easily become an office, studio or workshop. It’s here that you’ll find the laundry, too, and there’s a hills hoist in pride of place on the sprawling back lawn. And let’s not forget the 12 solar panels doing good for your hip pocket right from the get-go.

On Barcelona Terrace, every day feels like a holiday. Come for the bargain and stay for the lifestyle – it’s priceless!
