    157 Adelaide Street E, Clayfield QLD 4011

    This grand residence delivers lifestyle, liveability and unbridled luxury, showcasing exquisitely detailed interiors and resort-inspired outdoor entertaining spaces sure to wow your guests for years to come. Positioned in an exclusive street within Clayfield’s prestigious education precinct, this elevated, impeccably renovated home captures spectacular north-easterly views towards the Gateway Bridge, Brisbane Airport and Moreton Bay. Features include bespoke Wyer + Craw joinery, Highgate House interior design, rich marble surfaces and an ebony and wrought iron staircase, a parent’s retreat, a heated pool, cinema, wine-tasting cellar and a snooker club-style lounge with bar.

    Set amidst private and secure, formal grounds with manicured hedges, specimen magnolias and Canary Island date palms, the enormous 1065m2 (over ΒΌ of an acre) corner allotment is framed by a sturdy pillar fence design together with arched entry and driveway gates.

    Originally a builder’s own home, this substantially sized, double brick residence has had its living areas extended and enhanced over recent years, with a stunning redesign of internal spaces completed only two months ago. Large patios and breezy balconies wrap around both the ground level’s and first floor’s formal, family and master retreat spaces, while on the third level, a tiled, open-air terrace allows stunning 180 degree vistas across the Brisbane skyline.

    Only the finest finishes, crafted cabinetry and high-end inclusions have been used, delivering a truly unique residence worthy of this prestigious address. Gallery-wide, travertine tiled walkways and soft curves create a dramatic entrance, with the foyer providing an elegant reception and refined, long-table dining area when hosting special events.

    There is an executive office dressed in dark timber, marble and herringbone laid oak floors, a gymnasium, an enormous four-car garage, a storeroom and bathroom amenities on the ground floor to accompany the work and living spaces.

    Made for entertaining, the dark and moody, hotel-style wine-tasting room with its custom-built bottle racks set in behind protective glass doors houses an extensive collection. Snooker or billiards enthusiasts will love the antique, championship-sized table central to the games room with its rich, club-styled carpets. Included is a bar with a commercial drink and wine fridge, a Miele coffee machine, a servery seating area and French doors that open onto the covered terrace and poolside entertaining area.

    Every cook and entertainer will love the huge kitchen with its full suite of Miele appliances, Zip HydroTap, black granite benchtop surfaces and butler’s pantry. Included are two ovens plus a steam oven, an induction cooktop, a dishwasher and a second coffee machine. Dining and living areas flow from this central hub and out onto a covered terrace with electric blinds that close to form a room, also shielding during unfavourable weather.

    Exuding opulence and pure relaxation, the master suite and parent’s retreat grant absolute privacy and luxury. Situated on the first floor adjacent to the fireside lounge with a marble-edge, wood-burning fireplace, these suites are ideally separate from the children’s accommodation level.

    Recently having received a Highgate House interior design makeover, the addition of stylish wallpapers, elegant drapes, roman blinds and all-white, integrated Wyer + Craw cabinetry have superbly elevated the restfulness and practicality of these parents-only spaces. With extraordinary attention to detail, highlights include a custom-built dressing room with island storage, an illuminated handbag display case and a seated makeup table. Continue through to the deluxe ensuite with its Victoria + Albert freestanding bath and feature tiled floor, dual vanities and recessed mirrored wall cabinets.

    On the uppermost level are four king-sized bedrooms, a built-in study that offers multiple, dedicated workspaces for students, a rumpus area and the home cinema with tiered, luxe seating, a large screen, projector and in-ceiling speakers. There are conveniently located powder rooms throughout the home, a full, family bathroom with a large bath, a second master suite with a walk-in robe, ensuite and study nook and an ideal guest suite or nursery located one floor down.

    The home features air-conditioning throughout, a concrete under-slab water storage tank for garden irrigation and a full complement of up-to-the-minute, smartphone and wall tablet-activated security features with back-to-base monitoring for added peace of mind.

    With what is one of Clayfield’s most prized locales, this impeccable residence set upon a prominent, yet private position stands amongst very fine company in a suburb that is rich in heritage. Situated less than 7km from the CBD, this address will suit professionals, frequent travellers and families with school-aged children, with the Brisbane Airport and a choice of leading private and state schools located within a 2km radius. Excellent public transport offerings, major arterials and access to the tunnel network are located nearby, allowing for streamlined weekday travel into the city and easy weekend getaways to both coasts.
