A new-build when Susie bought it for $1.3 million, its modular exterior and open-plan layout were so avant-garde that 20 years on it fails to look dated. While the house has undergone some modifications over the years — a lick of paint, an updated room here and there — Susie said its footprint had remained the same. The house has an amazing view of Brisbane River. Yet coming to own the house in 2001 was somewhat accidental, according to Susie, after the pair stumbled upon it in a renovation write-up in The Courier Mail. “We thought, wow, look at that amazing home, but didn’t think more of it. Then we saw it again, I think it was a few weeks later, in the listings section; it was for sale,” she said. “We were house-hunting at the time but we weren’t really looking in Yeronga, until we saw that house.” This home will have you climbing the wallscenter_img The most viewed homes in Queensland this year “The layout of the house is quite open-plan, which at the time, I guess, was quite modern,” Susie said. “We thought it was space age,” she laughed. One feature of the property that has been a more recent addition is the pool with a Fast lane swim machine. One of only two in the country, you swim against a current to notch up distance while staying on the spot. The house has had minor renovations done to it since it was built in 2001.There is also a wide covered entertaining deck with a built-in barbecue and seating, and mature landscaped gardens that lead to a powered pontoon on the water.Yet, for Susie and the family, the home’s most remarkable feature is the view. The swimming pool has a Fast lane swim machine installed and is only one of two in Australia.“The house has the most amazing view of the river, which you see as soon as you walk through the front door.”More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus8 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market8 hours agoShe fondly recalls times of when her children were young and she would rise early in the mornings, wrap a duvet around herself and, with a cup of coffee in hand, sit and watch the rowers go by. The decor is soothing and minimalist.It’s times such as these that have made walking away from the property so hard — for Susie at least. “I don’t think my husband is too concerned,” she laughed. “I think I get way more emotionally attached to things.“It was the first house we bought together and it is where we raised our two children. One of my favourite memories is of them running around under the sprinklers in the back yard, before we had the pool. So, yeah, it’s hard to let go.” Brisbane Corso is one of Brisbane’s most elite enclaves.The elite road of Brisbane Corso is one of the most coveted in the city for its views and privacy. Buyers of the property will be in good company with several athletes and sporting identities residing in the street, including the owners of champion racehorse Winx and former Olympian Mark Stockwell.While the decision to move has not been an easy one, Susie said the family’s busy schedule meant it made sense for them to be closer to the boys’ school, to cut down on commuting. The house goes under the hammer on September 12, if not sold beforehand.
