Brand new, brilliantly reimagined and constructed with the utmost attention to detail, this versatile residence set across two sensational levels presents stylish living and spectacular poolside entertaining on a private, level allotment in upmarket Hendra. Taking the quintessential Queensland character and developing an ultra-contemporary, large family home that has it all, showcased are all new interiors and exteriors utilising the highest quality of designer finishes and inclusions. Presented is a custom-built wine display, media/rumpus room, integrated outdoor kitchen, office, study/reading area with day bed, mineral salt pool and steam room.
With an extraordinary total area of 650m2 under roof, no aspect has been overlooked, from the smooth, Australian Blackbutt floors, imported Omani limestone and handcrafted, Smoked White tiled surfaces, to the showpiece 40mm Caesarstone kitchen with a striking 3.2 metre long island to seat six and fine European appliances.
Positioned within a wide, poinciana tree lined street, the home with its grand portico entry is imposing from the outset, set in behind a high fence that tastefully complements, with a secure, intercom-controlled visitor gate and remote driveway entrance. Step inside to 3-metre-high ceilings, a gallery-inspired wide hallway and light-filled interiors, highlighted by expanses of glass and contemporary VJ linings.
Pass the media lounge with soundproofed ceiling and the custom-designed, illuminated 51 bottle, glass-faced wine cellaring cabinet, to a voluminous, combined living, dining and designer kitchen where the ceiling height rises even further.
White shaker-style cabinets feature exclusively, matching the detail of the home’s internal doors. Incorporated into the layout is a full butler’s pantry with integrated dishwasher plus an additional 4-door pantry. Cooking appliances include a Smeg 900mm, 6 burner gas range, separate Smeg grill, two rangehoods and compact speed oven. Also contained is an integrated drinks fridge, second dishwasher and multiple sinks, one with an Insinkerator.
This residence delivers sophisticated indoor/outdoor living built on an impressive scale. Double bi-fold door openings lead to the private covered terrace with its soaring, double height roofline above, soft, mood lighting and matt black, Big Ass fan. Overlooking the premium, concrete Plungie pool, lilly pilly edged landscape, grassed yard and stylish pool house, this expansive entertaining area is truly spectacular. The space features a full-width built-in kitchen dressed in Caesarstone’s durable, exterior range stone, an integrated BBQ with canopy rangehood, fridge, sink and extensive storage.
The separate, architect designed pool house positioned at the rear of this very large allotment can pose as additional guest living, a games room, gym or a day spa inspired retreat, having a fully tiled steam room, luxurious bathroom with rain shower and its own outdoor terrace.
This residence offers superb adaptability for families of all ages, with quiet spaces, multiple bathrooms and extra-large, built-in bedrooms that can easily accommodate desks for those studying. When older relatives come to stay, the ground floor office, opening onto the front courtyard, can be repurposed into a private guest suite with adjacent, accessible bathroom; ideally positioned away from the main living areas.
An elegant, turnaround timber staircase leads to the upper level where there are five bedrooms and three bathrooms, a large landing ideal as a reading or play space, an elongated, multi-user study nook and homework space with wide stone topped desk for monitors and a custom-designed window-side daybed.
The master suite is ultra-luxurious and fit for a super king-sized bed, with bespoke walk-in-robe with multi-hanging, drawers and inbuilt dressing table and an indulgent spa-inspired ensuite with white stone freestanding bath, double showers, heated towel rails and wide, dual-basin vanity.
All bathrooms throughout the home and pool house feature the same, uniform styling inclusions, with niches, oak finish wall hung vanities with white stone tops and round countertop basins. Continued also is the use of high quality, polished chrome tapware, with twin rail and large, rain shower heads, and baths having both a handheld spray head for washing hair in addition to the filling spout.
You will love the unexpected extras that are included within this residence, including the vast amounts of practical storage. Plantation shutters are used exclusively, lockable on all ground level and accessible windows. The enormous laundry has an abundance of cabinets, farmhouse sink and laundry chute, under bench appliance space and adjoins an enclosed, secure drying court and services corridor that houses the twin Mitsubishi Electric air conditioning towers. The air conditioning system has individual room zones and is operated by smart control.
An oversized, epoxy-coated floor double garage can easily accommodate two four-wheel-drives or trade vehicles, with one side having an additional remote-controlled garage door to allow drive through access to the back yard, perfect for garden maintenance or boat/trailer storage. The property is fully secure for children and pets, with 1.8 metre high perimeter fencing.
The Hendra locale, at less than 10km from the CBD, is chosen by families for its quiet streets, level of nearby amenity and its convenience to major arterials, retail, parks and quality state and private schooling, with the local Catholic primary school a 4 minute walk and Clayfield and St. Rita’s colleges a 5 minute drive away.
Dandelion and Driftwood, your new favourite coffee stop and eat-in café loved by those both local and from afar, is just a few steps from this residence. For those who travel frequently or those who long to, the Brisbane Airport is a mere 10 minutes away by car.
