A design that epitomises the optimism of Brisbane’s post war architecture, encouraging an indoor/outdoor connection and good conversation, this elegant residence is one that will always be in style. Perched atop a ridgeline on an impressive 2274m2, rich timber floors, stonework adorned terraces and soothing water features built into the landscape deliver beautifully private and joyful spaces for exquisite everyday living and spectacular evening entertaining.
With expanses of glass taking in breathtaking views across the treetops, spacious, modernised interiors, a bespoke, built-in timber cocktail bar and separate accommodation levels, this is an opportunity to secure a versatile residence at a premium address.
With an enduring, hardwood weatherboard construction and steeply pitched tiled roofline, an appeal that is both sophisticated and ageless, the prominent two-level design sits proudly across its wide allotment, whilst remaining private from the street, and neighbouring properties.
Discover the exquisite hard and soft landscape design that is an artwork of steps and structures, colour and form, with covered and open-air terraces, highlighted pond elements and cascading water, contrasting bluestone wall and a freestanding barbecue pavilion for stunning alfresco dining.
At any time of the year, this home ably performs with minimal fuss and maximum flair.
Inviting, separate formal areas on the upper level of the residence offer refined, classically presented living destinations with high ceilings and highly polished floorboards. Welcome friends for a drink at the bar and take a step out to the viewing deck, be captivated by the warm ambience and skyline vistas as you dine, then retire to the club style lounge with its contemporary gas fireplace set within a sandstone feature wall.
Recreate your favourites in the gourmet kitchen. Renovated to a high standard and incorporating appliances that perform, included is a German Neff dual oven combination, a premium gas cooktop with imposing twin, externally vented tubular rangehoods overhead, Franke sink and a twin drawer dishwasher. Exquisite granite benchtops and a central servery, complementary, sleek cabinet finishes in dark woodgrain and ivory provide an abundance of practical and orderly storage in a light and well-ventilated setting.
The floors are connected by way of a hardwood staircase with decorative steel balustrades and timber handrailing; a large pane of glass on the exterior wall naturally illuminating the way.
Bedroom accommodation spaces are located on both levels, maintaining seclusion and peacefulness and offering adaptable rooms to suit individual needs. The master suite on the main living level is a retreat from the everyday, taking in restful views from both inside the room and outside on the cantilevered timber balcony that is edged with glass. With a very large walk-in robe, ensuite with two-person bath and dual vanity, the layout is purely indulgent.
With three further bedrooms, one of which is ensuited, the option to create a teenager’s zone, private guest accommodation suite, spacious work from home office or library is yours to explore. Framed on two sides by glass, a studio space opening to the tiled terrace will set your creative intentions and artistic abilities into action. Design, draft, paint, or reimagine this light-filled room as a games area or yoga studio, such is the versatility. With 3.5 bathrooms in total, amenities for residents and visitors have been well considered.
A larger than average double garage provides additional storage for bicycles or workshop area, while an enclosed under-house storage facility could house your extensive wine collection. Ducted air-conditioning assures climate comfort and a back to base alarm system offers peace of mind.
Low maintenance gardens, a herb and vegetable house to deliver freshly grown food direct to your table, a 5000 litre water tank for irrigation and with a level lawn area for pets and children to play, this is simply a lovely home for all the family to enjoy.
There is dual street access to this property, the private laneway leading to secluded river’s edge parkland accessible only to residences within this exclusive enclave.
