Located in a quiet street on this magnificent absolute riverfront block with a remarkable three-storey home inspired by the iconic designs of architect Frank Lloyd Wright offers city views and panoramic vistas of the Brisbane River on a massive 1756m2 flood-free allotment with 20m of river frontage and enough space for a tennis court just 3.5km to the CBD. Move straight in, renovate, rebuild your dream home or develop (STCA) – this rare opportunity is yours for the taking.
The beautiful and unique 1930’s home offers a modern take on traditional Japanese architectural features. Arrive at the welcoming entrance with its striking stone wall, water feature, tropical gardens and impressive double timber doors. Once inside admire the high ceilings, timber and bamboo flooring and timber features throughout the home including decorative timber doors, timber framed windows, timber staircases and carefully placed Japanese-style features including sliding screens or ‘shoji’ and high panels or ‘ranma’ above doors and walls.
Changing ceiling heights create volumetric interest throughout the home. In the large open plan living areas, magnificent river views are captured through tall glass windows and doors opening onto the east-facing balcony with glass balustrades that maximise the outlook both inside and out. From here, watch the sunrise over the river and rowboats passing by.
The stylish kitchen is a modern affair with top-of-the-range features including Gaggenau wall ovens, NEFF induction stove and rangehood, integrated Liebherr fridge/freezer, large island bench, breakfast seating, stone benchtops, quality joinery and plentiful storage. A skylight allows natural light into the space and adds a sense of poetry with light playing off the walls and floors at different times of day.
The master bedroom is privately tucked away on the upper level and enjoys gorgeous river views. It includes lovely modern Japanese-style sliding panels maximising light and privacy, a bay of timber windows, large walk-in-robe and an ensuite with spa bath, double vanity and large shower.
On the lower level of the home, a spacious studio with separate external access can be used for a wide variety of purposes and tailored to suit your family’s needs. Whether a home office, gym, games room or yoga studio, its river views make it an inviting space to work or play from home. A kitchenette, bedroom, bathroom and library are also situated on this level opening onto a large undercover deck.
Outside, the large level lawn extends onto an additional timber deck overlooking the majestic Brisbane River making full use of the property’s absolute river frontage amidst the glorious natural setting.
