17 Malton Street, THE GAP
Large family home, views to the Taylor Range
What do you get when you combine perhaps one of the best swimming pool frontages of any home in The Gap with sweeping, private vistas north to tall timber and pine forests rising majestically upon the horizon? It all comes together at 17 Malton Street and that’s where the fun and magic happens!
You’ll enjoy the picturesque views from the living room to the bedrooms, front deck and pool area over the tree-topped hills that run into Ferny Grove and Keperra, with this two-storey residence oozing with unique features and located at the end of a cul-de-sac that commands privacy and respect.
Entrance is through a gated driveway that’s secured by an intercom system that shows who can, and who can’t, access this sanctuary of lush greenery and ornamental boulders that line the pebble-stone drive way up to the regal residence itself and open two-car carport. Once, up a short flight of pavers, you’ll find yourself at the front door of this handsome brick and rendered-facade home, a rectangular salt water swimming pool at your right, and the right way to finish off a day in the hot sun or to simply splash about. The spacious pool comes with a deck of sandstone tiles and the latest in filtration systems, and presents a separate lifestyle of its own. There’s an adjacent, covered outdoor patio area that’s perfect for plating and presenting your favourite al fresco dishes, a handsome, ornate shower for a quick cleanse beforehand, and a toilet and sink that completes the array of custom-built amenities for outdoor use and convenience.
However, it’s the home itself, apart from its spectacular north-eastern views at the front across The Gap that has such a special, spacious and personalised touch, with an airy openness that makes the most of every room. The kitchen is fitted with sliding glass doors that makes it so easy to serve your finest fare either outdoors by the pool under the covered patio, or inside the combined living and dining room. A new four-burner gas Smeg range and oven, including a Smeg Range Hood and LG dishwasher, puts the kick into the kitchen, and an adjacent wall-mounted Teac TV lets you watch your favourite cooking shows without skipping a beat from a pot to a pan. You’ll also love the double-sink with a Zip dispenser of boiling and cold water situated in an island-style layout that’s handy, yet out of the way for the room you need to manoeuvre amongst the main courses.
Head into the largesse of the living room to relax which is cooled by a split-system AC unit, or retreat to the enormous rumpus room, also located on this level. The laundry, is adjacent, and houses a separate shower, toilet and sink as well. Moving upstairs you’ll delight in discovering three newly carpeted bedrooms, each with its own AC unit, generous wardrobes and a modern, centralised bathroom. You’ll even find an additional study room/nursery on this level and the master bedroom has a newly renovated ensuite.
The exterior and eco-savings of this prestige property have been as carefully considered as the interior with a 13,000ltr water tank, and a 20-panel, 8kW inverter and solar energy system to help keep running costs contained.
And if you enjoy getting crafty with crafts, a work shed complete with shelving awaits, which is also combined with a separate room for a private home office.
When combined with other nearby attractions that lie within 5km of this residence such as Hilder Road State School, The Gap Primary School, The Gap State High School, gyms and racquet clubs, The Gap Village Shopping Centre, The Enoggera Reservoir and its recreational activities, the Ashgrove Golf Course, express public transport into Brisbane’s CBD and more, you’ll discover that the sweeping vistas and special spaciousness of 17 Malton Street is where a lifetime of memories, and the fun that comes with living in The Gap, can easily be made.
