Akin to an exclusive, boutique resort, Barrambin is imbued with understated luxury, combining leading-class architecture with immaculate styling, to deliver a riverfront estate of the highest order, while remaining at heart a welcoming family home.
The result of a harmonious relationship between client and award-winning designer/builder Osterfield & Johnson, Barrambin far surpasses the expectations of the most discerning buyer. Every lifestyle amenity has been included, delivering a superlative setting coupled with a residence that comprehensively caters for friends, family, daily life and grand entertaining – all in equal measure. With meticulous attention to even the smallest feature, it is the inspired design and exquisite detail that truly sets this estate apart. Each and every fitting has been carefully chosen with both beauty and quality in mind.
The name Barrambin, meaning ‘meeting place’, was retained from the property’s original homestead and further embodies the hospitable nature of this home. The centre point of the building displays a studied symmetry, with the apex of the roof in line with the centre of both the alfresco lounge room and the waterfall-edge pools beyond. In this way, the sight line is drawn across a seamless view of tranquil water to the Brisbane River. Along with the pool, tennis court and 12m pontoon, the property showcases an expansive entertaining bar (with humidified fridges, ice machine and dishwasher) leading to outdoor, covered entertaining decks that can be transformed into intimate, heated enclaves in winter. Catering for a crowd is effortless with the addition of a commercial wok and Teppanyaki BBQ on the riverside, and vine-covered terrace with pizza oven on the lakeside, all with direct access to the master kitchen and to the media and billiard rooms.
The open plan kitchen enjoys both a river and lake vista. Central to the design is a sprawling island bench; combined with a full complement of Miele appliances and a butler’s pantry, the multiple catering configurations make entertaining a breeze. Myriad spaces for living and dining are situated throughout the home, each able to be used independently or utilised together for one grand and impressive entertainment zone.
The luxurious master suite includes an open plan ensuite, riverfront balcony, private lounge area and an outdoor shower, surrounded by a fully walled garden. Two bedrooms, each with ensuite, are positioned in a private wing, while the fourth and fifth bedrooms are located in attached fully self-contained quarters. These independent quarters look over the tennis court, gardens, fruit orchard and tranquil lakes beyond, continuing the feeling of exclusivity found throughout Barrambin.
Further features of this magnificent NE-facing property include two freshwater lakes (with fish, turtles and crayfish), a fire pit, music room, sauna, airconditioned wine cellar with capacity for 600 bottles, home office and garaging for six vehicles. Additionally, as is expected for a home of this calibre, the very latest in smart technology has been incorporated into the building. Security, sound, lighting, multiple TVs and electric blinds are all conveniently controlled from your iPad.
Situated on 9991m2 of beautifully landscaped gardens, this is possibly Brisbane’s finest riverfront estate, where a full range of lifestyle options has been combined with meticulously presented luxury. Come home to the beauty, exclusive luxury and refined welcome that is Barrambin – a real estate offering of world-class standing.
