3/232 Riding Road, Balmoral - Sold
Stars shining bright above you
Night breezes seem to whisper ‘I love you’
Birds singing in the Riding Road trees
Dream a little dream of ‘Three’.
When Ella Fitzgerald (First Lady of Song and widely-hailed Queen of Jazz) sung her own opening verse of ‘Dream a little dream’, she might as well have been singing about this quaint little Balmoral development which happens to share her name.
For indeed, here, at this collection of 6 jazzy and inspired residences known as ‘Ella on Riding’, you’ll find dreamy little Townhouse 3.
A contemporary city pad with a definite soulful and sultry vibe, this intimate townhome is a testament to the truism that small things can make a big impact – a truth not lost on Duke Realty sales agent Jason Chave.
In fact, as Jason explains, “Though sometimes overlooked, the 2 bedroom townhouse is actually a rare, shining gem in the marketplace and this one offers the added bonus of not just one but TWO ensuited bedrooms.”
With a private master suite incorporating generous walk-in-robe and balcony access, an equally spacious second bedroom is similarly graced with substantial storage and is also connected to the upper terrace via its own private door.
In fact, stretching right along the hall from one bedroom to the other, the expansive upper balcony provides an elevated breakout space, capturing cool evening breezes and glimpses of the sparkling night sky across neighbouring rooflines.
An additional private built-in study alcove completes the upper level, offering a dedicated ‘work from home’ space kept separate from both bedroom and living zones – another rare yet welcome retreat in this stylish abode.
Channeling all the energy of a chic, New York-inspired terrace, the lower level continues with a mod, city vibe. Sleek grey 2-pac cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and reconstituted stone bench tops in the expansive kitchen are complimented by glossy wood grain veneers and quality chrome tapware in bathrooms, while slick porcelain tiles and floor-to-ceiling glass allow light to dance off surfaces and glass block feature windows transform a sweeping, curved timber staircase into an additional lightwell.
All bedroom and living spaces as well as the tiled external entertaining terraces have been oriented to embrace an ideal northern aspect, ensuring the home’s stylish interiors and large, private courtyard capture both soothing night breezes and radiant morning sun.
Better still, this townhome is located in a lively and connected neighbourhood, moments from the Oxford St and Hawthorne Rd retail and dining precincts, local parks and sporting grounds, with the local Hawthorne and Bulimba city cat terminals but a short stroll from your front door.
Positioned on picturesque Riding Rd, this lively, tree-lined arterial is the heart and soul of its neighbourhood, hosting regular walkers and joggers as well as conducting residents onwards towards the vibrant local social scene.
Located literally footsteps from a safe crossing, this townhome is perfectly positioned across from a range of public transport services and a dedicated bike lane and is firmly in catchment for the quality local Catholic and state primary schools, with a neighbourhood daycare centre diagonally positioned across from your front door.
So, if you’re seeking all that jazz in your own intimate New-York inspired townhome, call Jason Chave today and enjoy the upbeat tempo of living in a prized, swinging and social locale.
