A stunning, curvaceous architectural form to ignite interest and desire upon first impression, the exquisite appearance, meticulous detail and accompanying landscape offer but a glimpse into the luxurious interiors and swoon-worthy outdoor living spaces of this precision-built residence. Atop a ridgeline and capturing incredibly breathtaking city skyline panoramas, this ultra-efficient abode demands attention with its enormous 13.5 kW duplicable solar system, collection of top-of-the-line Miele appliances, opulent master retreat and a soundproof, sub-terranean wine tasting, media or gym room with dual skylights that look upward into the heated MagnaPool.
Just completed by Consol Projects and Construction Solutions, this brand-new residence creatively conceptualised by leading Brisbane architectural force, Ryall and Smyth Architects will astound with its 793m2 of floor space. Designed with absolute consideration to functionality, durability, liveability and future efficiency, the bold, predominantly concrete structure features oversized, basement-style garaging and secure off-street parking for additional vehicles, commercial grade glass openings, Control4 smart automation and intended battery storage locations for car and home.
Smooth, Cerano render finishes, hand-placed stonework and a rooftop garden grace the contemporary façade, with the plant selection and design, undertaken by Hortum Landscaping, offering a cooling, soft Mediterranean feel to the exteriors. The level of privacy is unrivalled.
Be greeted by towering 9.3-metre ceilings and an elegantly curved staircase as you enter, with six, striking, Caribou Vermont Ring pendants grouped overhead and herringbone-laid American Oak floors flowing throughout the home’s voluminous interiors. Such is the intended attention to detail, the neutral colour palette of complementary whites, light oak, cashew and brushed brass appear in all areas, without compromise.
Imported Snow Ash Terrazzo Lappato porcelain tiles, matt-finish kit-kat finger tile highlights to wet areas, travertine external surfaces and light, Ambassador Stone benchtops will ensure your styling choices can be effortlessly accommodated.
Live, love and indulge the senses. The glass-edged central living areas feature 3.6-metre-high ceilings with sheer drapes that trace the curved shape of the doors. There is a purpose-built wine display cabinet and fireside lounge with city vistas, high-end kitchen and scullery and, beyond, a poolside entertaining terrace with a built-in barbecue and Schmick drinks fridge.
With a designer-inspired, 5.5-metre-long island servery, streamlined, soft-close cabinetry, Greens brushed brass tapware and a Billi filtered, chilled, boiling and sparkling water tap, the kitchen and scullery are filled with innovative inclusions that grant up-to-the-minute style. Miele appliances dominate, with two ovens, a microwave and plumbed coffee machine set at wall height, a wide, full-surface induction cooktop, dishwasher and a fully integrated fridge/freezer with ice-making function.
There is a space for everyone to relax in. Step down to the garage level and continue into the underground multi-purpose room. With concrete walls, ceiling and floor, pool viewing skylights and glass entry door, this room poses any number of uses, from games and sports bar to gym or home cinema, a private office or library to a unique, wine tasting room that is sure to impress your guests.
On the uppermost level of the home, again enjoying high ceilings, a secondary casual living area with a wet bar, DishDrawer dishwasher and fridge also takes in the spectacular, far-reaching views. Five-panel stacker doors open onto a private, travertine tiled terrace with glass balustrades, a bio-ethanol fireplace and a freeform concrete bench.
Bedroom accommodation areas are exceptionally luxurious, extraordinarily spacious and bursting with high-quality finishes such as plush wool carpets and custom wardrobe designs, with three of the rooms, including the lavish master, having their own ensuite. Offering incredible comfort for parents, children of all ages and guests, each room has individual, air-conditioning temperature readers connected to the Control4 system together with ceiling fans and high-set windows to ensure privacy.
The master retreat in a private wing, exudes a five-star appeal, with a panorama-granting, large glass pane for night-time city lights viewing. The suite features oak-finish custom-built his and hers wardrobes, a seated makeup table and a skylight-lit walkway that leads to the impeccably detailed ensuite with freestanding composite bath, walk-in, glass-free shower, dual basin vanity and floor-to-ceiling tiles.
There is a two-way bathroom on this level and a stylish powder room on the ground floor which features Parkes Ocean Gloss mini-picket wall tiling as a design highlight. A contemporary office with a curved edge sits near the home’s entry behind a large, opaque glass sliding door. Extensive cabinetry storage and a built-in desk have been incorporated into this practical space.
With a very large solar panel system already in place, the services area is neatly tucked away in its own concealed, walk-in compartment behind the entry-level car parking spaces. Able to be duplicated to double the energy-producing abilities, it is anticipated that the whole of the residence could operate, in future, entirely off-grid. Smart automation ensures that the home’s lights and entry gates, pool, security cameras and alarm system, air-conditioning and garden irrigation can all be operated and monitored from the convenience of your phone, from anywhere in the world.
High upon Couldrey Street, this enviable, ridgeline position is just 5km from the CBD, a 2-minute drive from Stuartholme School and 6 minutes from Brisbane Boys’ College. The Brisbane Botanic Gardens and a number of picturesque bushland walking trails that set off from the foothills of Mount Coot-tha are only a few minutes away.
