Recently completed, this extraordinary two-storey abode and its high-quality inclusions will astound. The one-of-a-kind residence is directed at discerning families, with its uncompromisable amenity and comfort, generosity of space and storage, capacity to welcome guests in style and ability to entertain with absolute elegance. This is a home to hold on to, in one of Brisbane’s most coveted, highly prized suburbs.
From the first impression, you’ll agree that this new build is of an exacting high standard. Methodically laid sandstone and white-painted, solid timber joinery set the tone, with raw, naturally ageing copper elements and black detailing, distinctive highlights. Hand-shaped, the standing seam copper roof over the front porch is an eye-catching feature, while limestone-tiled surfaces ground underfoot. Landscaped, lush, secure and private, the 653m2 allotment is immaculate.
Within the skilfully styled interiors are formal and informal rooms of enormous proportions. Showcased are walnut-finished, hand-stained solid French Oak floors, a gas fireplace, dramatic ceilings including those with coffered components and heights of up to 3.8 metres, and expertly constructed, timber-framed double sash windows and French doors.
Natural light accompanies you as you walk from the striking staircase void to the expansive, open living and dining areas. Glance across the inground pool to your left and a relaxing water feature with shouldering magnolias at your right through an enormous pane of clear glass.
The kitchen inspires as a work of art, with complementary bespoke, hand-finished cabinetry in royal green and white, contrasting single-slab Carrara marble and honed black granite countertops, imported lighting pendants, Spanish splashback tiles, knurled handles and Brodware Australian made tapware.
With German craftsmanship, appliance appointments include a Gaggenau 5-burner gas cooktop, a full-size multi-function pyrolytic oven and a combi-microwave oven, and an integrated Miele dishwasher. Also fully integrated is a Fisher and Paykel French door fridge/freezer, with the recess able to be converted to house a Sub-Zero if ever required.
A drinks centre holds a counter to prepare and serve, a Liebherr wine fridge and a unique, interwoven mesh grille facing the overhead cocktail cupboard. Storage is in plentiful supply, with an additional pantry corridor and fridge provision situated within the adjoining laundry.
Outdoor living and opportunities to entertain will beckon, with a large undercover terrace to lounge, dine and laze away the days on. Overlooking the glass-framed pool, high-walled surrounds, a level lawn and landscape plantings offer places for all to enjoy.
With skylights overhead, a central timber staircase leads to the upper level. At the top, French Oak floors carry through walkways and the exceptionally large rumpus, games and media room providing high-performing durability. The landing offers versatility as a multi-user study or a playroom and is the ideal spot to base your extensive library collection. Along the northeast side are banks of Queen Anne-style double sash windows and an elongated bay window seat upholstered in an Anna Spiro fabric.
Four of the bedrooms are located on this uppermost level, while a luxurious ground-floor guest suite, that opens onto the front porch, poses potential for office use. Plush carpets, greatly oversized rooms, decidedly upscale wardrobe inclusions and custom-made drapes appear throughout.
The master suite is extravagantly opulent, situated behind double doors and capturing far-reaching, elevated views from its windows on three sides. Offering distinct his and her wardrobes separated by a wide bank of hand-painted drawers, a shoe cupboard with a full-length mirror and a drum shade overhead a central ottoman space, this dressing room is ultra-luxurious.
Bathrooms are resplendent in Carrara marble, with herringbone-laid floors appearing in all. With floor-to-ceiling marble in the ensuite, a deep freestanding bath, rain and spray shower heads and high-quality porcelainware, the level of refinement is unmatched. The separate zones of the family bathroom, additional ensuites and the guests’ powder room finishes are of an equally high standard.
Air-conditioned throughout, the residence remains comfortable year-round, with this and the home’s alarm and 6-camera monitoring controlled by smartphone. Behind a sliding gate, accessed via Dennison Street, is a triple garage with high cearance, remote-controlled doors and secure driveway parking for another two vehicles.
Positioned less than 5km from the CBD, approximately 15 minutes from Brisbane’s domestic and international terminals and a short walk from Ascot State School, Oriel Park, Markets and the Racecourse Road precinct, this address affirms utmost prestige, convenience and liveability.
