84 Wahine Drive, Russell Island QLD 4184 View on map

Type: House

Perched on the high-side of the street, you’ll find this charming elevated Queenslander with panoramic views across Canaipa Passage to North Stradbroke Island.

This powder-blue Hardiplank construction sits on a solid concrete foundation (perfect for future expansion) and floats on the horizon, atop the magical waterways of Southern Moreton Bay.

A curvy driveway leads you to the under-house garage with remote-entry. Or you can park at the half-way mark, on the grassy level-landing of this 625m2 block and take the gravel pathway to the front stairs.

Ascend to the lofty abode, breathing-in the salt air as the key turns to reveal your future.

You’ll sigh with delight, thinking you’ve arrived in Camp Hill or inner-city Brisbane by the period-features of this cute Queenslander, including:

  • Rich timber floorboards
  • High ceilings
  • Decorative fretwork
  • Large windows
  • Open-plan design without wasted hallways
  • French-doors to both queen-sized bedrooms
  • Kitchen, tucked to one side
  • Outdoor covered entertaining deck with views
  • Lattice-screening for privacy to North
  • Grand back-door with stairs to rear
  • Separate toilet & bathroom with internal laundry
  • Quaint study-nook
  • All-day sea breezes

The open-plan living has a ceiling fan, room for a sofa and conversation seating, while the separate dining zone has a triple-lighting feature, air-conditioning and access to the backstairs.

Both queen-sized bedrooms have timber French-doors with dappled glass, built-ins and air-conditioning. Wide windows ensure they’re bathed in sunshine and catch the sea-kissed breezes. Bright feature-walls promote joy, bringing calmness at sleep-time with jade and aqua hues.

The large white kitchen with timber-trimmed cabinetry and large picture windows, faces East for spectacular sunrises and all-day sunlight. The smart U-shape design provides lots of bench-space with lower and overhead cupboards and room for bulky storage.

There’s a:

  • Large pantry across the back wall
  • Space for family-sized fridge
  • Separate utility cupboard (great for cleaning tools & appliances)
  • Indoor electric hot-water tank, hidden behind a door
  • Dishwasher
  • Electric oven & cooktop
  • Double-sink with view to Straddie & beyond
  • Servery to deck
  • Loads of laminate benchtop
  • Cork-tile floors

The spacious accessible bathroom has a shub—shower with small bathtub, vanity and internal laundry with washtub. There’s a separate loo for convenience. An unusual addition is the tiled study nook, outside the bathroom and loo. Add a curtain or screen and it could double as a nursery for little ones!

If you have a growing tribe, this home can expand with you. The under-storey footprint already has a slab foundation and is legal height for conversion to extra living or additional bedrooms. Teenagers will appreciate the independence of a rumpus room for chilling and having sleepovers, while tinkerers might prefer it as a workshop and creatives, an art studio.

Currently, there’s secure access from the enclosed ‘garage’ to the rear-stairs and backyard, as well as the roller-door for vehicular access, at the front. Well-ventilated, it provides extra all-weather entertaining, or perhaps a home-business with treatment space, or dedicated office area?

Presented in its raw form, this basic but beautiful home has so much potential. Imagine:

  • Enjoying lazy brunches overlooking the waterways of Southern Moreton Bay
  • Doing a modern kitchen makeover
  • Soaking in a free-standing bathtub in the spacious bathroom (without sacrificing the laundry)
  • Dancing linen drapes catching the breeze in the bedrooms
  • Opening the lounge out to the deck with bi-folds
  • Utilising downstairs area to suit your needs (granny flat?)
  • Waking-up to glorious sunrises
  • Being so close to the public boat-ramp you could walk the boat there
  • Having this rare opportunity to live on Wahine

Not often, will you get the chance to live on the water’s edge where you can be one with the unique wildlife that inhabits the waterways and foreshore. The islands offer a wonderful lifestyle but are also fundamental to the environment they support in Southern Moreton Bay. Where else could you watch turtles swim, dugongs frolic and curlews dance?

Located at the mid-point of Russell Island, you’re not far from anything. Sandy Beach stretches to the South with the Gold Coast in the distance and the nearby boat-ramp to launch your tinnie, can have you there in thirty minutes.

Close to native wetlands, parks and walking trails, you can hike or bike to town; or a short 5-minute drive will see you shopping in IGA, or on the ferry for a wonderful way to start your commute to work or school. What could be better?

If you’ve ever thought of living the Wahine dream, now’s your chance to take advantage of this cute Queenslander with wonderful all-day views and a conservation-zone diagonally across the road, for quick access with your kayak or paddle-board into the watery escape of Canaipa Passage.

Any local will tell you, this property is good value for entry to Millionaire’s Row.
