Have you dreamed of a low maintenance life, where the most important things are based on the people you are around, and the enjoyment with them? A home should add to this enjoyment, and here at number 46 in The Hive, you'll find a design with features unique to the owner's creation. And as for the exterior, there are lifestyle aspects that would be the envy of any high-end resort.
In the case of finding a home that is truly unique, the surprises will keep on coming here. On the interior, there are a stunning array of original features, as well as a long list of owner-created additions, that are as enjoyable as they are unique.
At the entrance, you are immediately struck by the airiness of this townhouse, with its sumptuous timber staircases and natural sunlight flooding in front and back. On the first floor there is an enormous kitchen and dining area, with a family lounge all befitting the living requirements of this four-bedroom home. The kitchen bench has been doubled in size from the original specs, and has been joined by functional and ascetically pleasing features added by the current owners, such as stylish pendant lighting, a plumbed in fridge and induction stove top. There's Bosch appliance throughout, soft close cabinetry, a built-in bin system and enough storage to accommodate a family twice the size!
The beautifully appointed lounge with stunning plantation blinds - as with everywhere else - leads out onto a balcony with heaps of room for some luxurious furniture. And at the other end of this floor, there is a private garden and patio area, with extended lawn, and lusciously green trees and mature shrubs around the edge.
Heading further up the stairs, and we walk into a second lounge with room set aside for a study nook, and then access into the master bedroom with a striking feature wall, and a balcony with broad views of Mount Coot-Tha; a walk-in robe, and large en suite with double vanity. The owners have also added floor-to-ceiling block out blinds for those lazy Sunday lie-ins.
Past the linen cupboard and on to the separate toilet with sink, and a family bathroom with a shower and bath combo that's bigger than most others in the complex. There's also access to another bedroom, effectively making it a second en suite for anyone having friends or family over to stay. All the bedrooms are sizeable, and have mirrored fitted robes, and more of those terrific plantation blinds.
Back downstairs and there is a huge garage, with laundry and plenty of room for two cars and a workshop, storage or craft area. The complex also offers a swimming pool and BBQ areas, and immediate access to the local convenience store!
When it comes to The Hive, design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works. The owners here have made some truly wonderful additions, that offer a clear differentiation, and uniqueness to this family home.
The Hive is in the heart of The Gap, with easy access to all of the shops, schools, medical facilities and recreation you could ever hope for. Although heading closer to the city to accommodate schooling needs, the owners will be sorry to leave this level of luxury in The Gap, citing a wonderful community and social feel, with great lifestyle and convenience.
All that's left now is for you to make it yours.
