Statement Tri-Level Contemporary With Uninterrupted Brisbane River Views
176 Hargreaves Avenue, Chelmer QLD 4068
A design triumph that encapsulates the essence of this extraordinary, absolute riverfront locale, a robust construction of the highest order and a level of luxury beyond question, this exquisite entertainer’s residence is set to dazzle. An opportunity to acquire one of the finest river outlooks in Brisbane, light-filled levels flow fluidly to spectacular covered terraces, the tiled pool, a teppanyaki deck, boat shed and riverside pontoon. Featured are exclusive Iranian marble tiles and frameless glass openings, a self-contained apartment for family and guests, a subterranean cinema and wine cellar.
No expense has been spared in the creation and execution of this exclusive abode, with impeccable interiors and vast outdoor areas destined to engage, inspire and provide sanctuary for fortunate residents. With sophisticated living and entertaining spaces and the top level’s master suite enjoying the most prized northeast aspect across the water, the architecture is exceptional.
From the front door, you can see the river ahead. Private and secure, a gated entrance welcomes and introduces the refined appointments that are in abundance throughout this stylish home. The desirable orientation allows for passive breezes, cleverly placed windows and wall niches permit loads of natural light, while the open riser timber staircase and frameless glass stacker doors at the edge of the living areas maintain the panoramic view.
Grounding the central level and continuing onto the terrace are large format marble floor tiles that are incredibly rich in appearance and feel with their ivory and cream tones and smooth finish. Enjoy elegant gatherings and special occasions with family and friends, day and night, inside and out. Prepare a welcome drink from the fully optioned cocktail bar complete with Vintec wine fridge or select an extra special accompaniment or two from the 500+ bottle, temperature-controlled ground floor wine cellar and cold room.
European Miele kitchen appliance appointments include a 90cm, 5-burner gas cooktop and multi-function oven, a microwave combination oven and built-in coffee machine and a fully integrated dishwasher. Highlights include deep stone benchtop and servery surfaces, soft-closing cabinetry, ivory-coloured gloss-finished and contrasting dark wood veneer facings and a service corridor with extensive in-built pantry storage. Just steps from the garage, bringing the groceries inside is, thankfully, very easy.
Along one wall of this level’s entertaining terrace is an outdoor kitchen complete with high-grade exterior cabinetry and a stone countertop, a Vintec drinks fridge and sink and a Goldstein commercial-grade teppanyaki plate. Enjoy the peaceful river vistas across to the Indooroopilly Golf Club, look to the fully tiled inground pool and spa below or watch the family’s jet skis or boat pull up to your very own 9-metre pontoon.
Connected by internal and external stairs, the ground floor is host to an all-inclusive, self-contained apartment with a full kitchen, living and dining area and a river-facing bedroom with a walk-through robe and deluxe ensuite. Glass, again, features prominently at both the suite’s soundproof entrance and at a corner opening that connects this games room or second lounge seamlessly with the poolside terrace.
Offering an immaculate gallery-like space to be enjoyed by young adults, visiting guests or relatives, you will love the flexibility of this well-designed level and the luxurious surroundings that you can provide for them. Darkened, plush and fitted with C-Bus controlled cinema lighting, projector and a large screen, the semi-underground theatre is where you’ll stream all your favourites and watch blockbusters too.
Terraced levels between the house and the river make the most of this 464m2 allotment, with steps down to a timber deck with a second teppanyaki grill and bar-height servery, a heated, tiled spa and a further descent to the ‘boat shed’, where you can keep kayaks and life vests ready for use. A gangway leads to the pontoon which has a boat roller and a winch to enable you to store your small craft out of the water.
The uppermost level of the residence is home to four bedrooms including the lavish master suite with its exclusive-use, expansive river-facing balcony. This parent’s suite has a walk-in robe and dressing room and a supremely private ensuite. Featured are opulent, floor-to-ceiling marble tiles, an extra-large rectangular spa bath with bi-fold windows to capture the river breezes, a twin basin vanity, a heated towel rail and an oversized, two-person shower with dual shower head features.
Of the remaining, built-in bedrooms, two share an elevated balcony, one has a private ensuite and the other two share a Jack and Jill bathroom. Throughout, fixtures, fittings and finishes are of the highest quality, as you would expect from a contemporary home of this calibre. Each of the three levels has an independent ducted air-conditioning system, with bedrooms enjoying individual temperature controls. Powder room amenities are located on the central level for guest convenience.
Installed is a 22-panel rooftop solar panel system, stylish, privacy-inducing vertical screen architectural highlights to the building’s façade, a gatehouse walk-through and CCTV and intercom monitored secure entry courtyard that enables you to leave the front door open and welcome those cooling breezes. With lush, low-maintenance tropical plantings watered by a tank-fed irrigation system and a quiet street location lined with mature poincianas and shouldered by other luxury residences, this Chelmer property has it all.
A blue-chip, upmarket riverside suburb, Chelmer has always been regarded as one of Brisbane’s finest, most desirable locations, filled with parks and safe, quiet streets to walk, jog or cycle. Join the Brisbane River Loop cycleway for as little or as far as your time and legs allow.
Near elite western suburb schools, Terrace’s playing fields, a host of local cafés and treasured dining spots, under 3km from Indooroopilly Shopping Centre and approximately 20 minutes from the CBD and the University of Queensland, this idyllic riverside location will suit families and city-based professionals.
