668m2 Block in Mansfield State High Catchment
From the moment you enter the driveway of 20 Platypus Circuit, the impression of modern style is unavoidable. The sleek lines of the façade and the perfectly-kept gardens prepare you for the complete immersion into comfort and functionality you’re about to experience. When you enter the house itself, it becomes clear that if your universe revolves around good design, this is the property for you.
With five bedrooms and generous open-plan living areas and sitting on a 668m2 block, this is a home that can accommodate large families with lots of friends. Upon entry the 2.7-metre high ceilings add to the feeling of spatial abundance, ably complemented by the continuous flow of the downstairs living areas. The kitchen, dining and family rooms open out onto a generous covered alfresco that is sure to capture the hearts of anyone with a love for entertaining.
The ultra-modern chef’s kitchen is a work of art in itself, and the perfect place to let loose your epicurean creativity. Caesar-stone benchtops on all surfaces, including the island bench, provide ample space to work your magic, plus there is a five-burner gas cooktop, a bar fridge, soft-closing drawers and a butler’s pantry. You will be kept comfortable in all seasons by the Daikin ducted air-conditioning, and the Franklin plantation shutters allow for control of the natural light entering the property.
Downstairs you’ll find the grand master bedroom, which flows into a massive walk-in-robe and ensuite with shower, separate bath tub and double porcelain sinks. There is a second downstairs bedroom and bathroom, and the other three bedrooms are upstairs, reached by the solid timber staircase. They all come with built-in-robes and a ceiling fan, as does the upstairs living area, which would make the perfect teenage retreat. There is a main bathroom upstairs too, with a separate bath and shower and elegant floor-to-ceiling tiles.
The external areas of this home are perfectly in tune with the Queensland climate. The covered entertaining area comes with three ceiling fans and a barbeque gas point. Outdoor blinds keep the rain out in winter but can be opened up in summer, providing unfettered access to the inground pool with solar heating. There is a side entry that allows for a boat or trailer parking, and a Colourbond shed for storage of tools and gardening equipment. All this is complemented by a low maintenance garden that fits perfectly into the ‘lock and leave’ category if you wish to take a long holiday.
While it seems a world away from the hustle of Brisbane, it’s only a 20-minute drive to get to the city centre. You don’t have to sacrifice convenience for a peaceful lifestyle in this area. The Rochedale Town Centre is under construction and will be just a short drive away, and Rochedale Shopping Village, anchored by IGA, is also just around the corner. There is a plethora of schools to choose from nearby, including Mansfield State High, Redeemer Lutheran College and Rochedale State School. You also have easy access to the Pacific and Gateway motorways.
This home, with its high-design ethos and its seamless continuity between indoors and outdoors, will not be on the market long. This is your chance to buy into the premier Rochedale suburb, and start enjoying the lifestyle you deserve.
