Situated proudly along one of Brisbane’s most acclaimed absolute riverfront streets, this flood free commanding residence brings definitive contemporary style, soaring dimensions and an exacting array of bespoke finishes to this much envied locale. Designed by award-winning Luxury Home Designer Paul Clout with the unique Queensland lifestyle specifically in mind, it delivers expansive living spaces that flow seamlessly together and merge with the outdoors. Not only does this make the most of the naturally cooling river breezes, but it also works to capture the dynamic and very rare North-facing water views that encompass totally privatised golf course vistas and city glimpses.
Built to the highest of standards, the 709m2 residence utilises its 948m2 block to the fullest, incorporating a range of desirable features including a jetty and waterfront deck, a media room, gym, cellar and pool. Indeed, the pool is intrinsic to the design, positioned centrally with the house enfolded around it, so as to bring light and aquatic views right into the very heart of the home. Like the floor plan, uniquely engineered features can be found throughout, bringing a further sense of unparalleled refinement to the build. The front entry for example, combines a cascading water feature, columns clad in New Zealand schist stone and a truly magnificent front door that was custom-built at some two metres wide for the grandest of entrances. This high level of customisation continues into the kitchen, where a sprawling stone-clad island bench and bespoke Grey Iron Bark veneered cabinetry are further enhanced by a walk-in pantry, Miele appliances and a dumb-waiter to the garage. The kitchen sits proudly among a grand central area designed for open plan living and dining. While a gas fireplace sets the tone for the colder months, the ability to open the whole room out to the pool on one side and the covered deck on the other creates a wonderful Queenslander-style vibe all throughout Summer.
Looking out across manicured lawn to the riverfront deck and water beyond makes it the perfect space for entertaining, especially with the outdoor kitchenette on hand. The same high level of specification can also be seen in each of the home’s five bathrooms – all of which combine a beautiful array of travertine tiles, Ironbark veneered cabinetry and fine European fittings. The home’s five bedrooms meanwhile boast water views and/or balcony access along with spacious proportions and plentiful wardrobing. They are further supported by the home office, gym, five car garage, storeroom, wine cellar, a high level of security, air-conditioning, a vacuumaid system and an intercom.
Positioned just 6.5km from the CBD, this prominent residence offers a unique, Queensland style of living amidst the most sophisticated of executive surrounds, in what is truly a preeminent locale.
