Distinctly upscale and rich with bespoke inclusions and considered, stand-out features to impress the most fastidious, the recently finished re-imagining of this Fig Tree Pocket classic grants luxury and lifestyle in the quietest of locales. With a full-level, hotel-inspired master retreat, a deluxe-living children’s wing, private alfresco terraces, architectural skylights, high-end cabinetry, cocktail bar, Miele appliances and a butler’s pantry, this air-conditioned home with north aspect is primed for relaxation and enjoyment. Secure, high-tech and app-controlled, highlights include a separate studio/office, 6.6kW solar and a triple garage with gated entry.
The vision, planning and master-built construction have dynamically re-energised this home’s interiors and added plenty of ‘wow factor’ to the external areas, with purposeful, custom-fabricated details and continuity of the industrial style and upmarket finishes appearing throughout. Deep overhangs shade and protect living and accommodation spaces, while the impeccable surrounding landscape is exceptionally low maintenance.
Living areas are so very private, with the central gathering zones and each of the bedrooms opening via sliding doors directly to the outdoors, be it an elevated, glass-edged, wraparound balcony, a paved terrace or the stunning, bougainvillea and orange trumpet vine-covered pergola.
Exposed truss ceiling features and glazed skylight panes overhead effortlessly increase volume and light. White contrasts with black, greys, natural oak and brushed brass to great effect. There are exquisite, special edition Blanco Divino stone surfaces dressing the kitchen’s waterfall-edged island and splashback, matt black and contrasting oak cabinet facings, designer tapware and lighting fixtures, dramatic dark-painted brick walls and tiles in cement-grey, charcoal or on-trend timber-look.
Entertain guests on arrival with a welcome drink from the integrated bar, Vintec beverage centre or custom-built spirits drawer prior to dinner inside or out. Elegantly functional, the eye-catching kitchen has motorised-drive wall cabinet closers for easy access, high-end black and frosted glass-lined internal door and drawer linings, practical shelving systems, a Miele gas hob and rangehood, a multi-function oven and an integrated dishwasher.
The butler’s pantry has a convenient breakfast station, a coffee/tea-making area and an efficient Miele speed oven. Incorporated into this space, the laundry boasts black stone benchtops and complementary styling, twin under-bench appliance recesses and opens onto a drying court. The outstanding levels of storage will impress.
In its own secluded, upper-level wing and with high ceilings, the king-sized master retreat is one of pure indulgence. With an exclusive-use media lounge, an opulent, corner-situated bedroom with a north-facing balcony, a blissful ensuite and a designer dressing room fit-out with custom oak cabinetry, this is a space you will not want to leave.
Floor-to-ceiling sheer and block-out drapes reinforce the hotel-style luxury, while wide-opening stacker doors bring the outdoors in, allowing exceptional ventilation. The main’s light-filled ensuite has twin skylight panels overhead, a deep, oval back-to-wall bath, a feature brushed brass and matt black rainshower and a twin-basin vanity. Floors are tiled in matt, oak-look porcelain.
At the opposite end of the home is the children’s or guest wing, kept separate from central living and dining areas. This zone has three very versatile bedrooms including two with walk-in-robes and ensuites and another forming an ideal teenager’s retreat space with its tiled floors featuring black painted brick walls, exposed white trusses above and a black, fabricated steel ladder leading to a hidden, mezzanine-level reading nook.
Well thought out and very well executed, the level of detail throughout is first-class, from the soft-touch cavity sliding doors and the LED back-lit and demisting bathroom mirrors to the commercial-grade Wi-Fi, the unobtrusive, linear air-conditioning grilles and twin, instantaneous gas hot water systems. Two large outdoor units competently air-condition the interiors, with a split system installed in the wide, extra-height, three-car garage with automatic, flush-mount garage doors in Colorbond Monument.
The 668m2 allotment is fully fenced, with a Dahua intercom-controlled gate for visitors to the studio, office or business space, security cameras to the house’s perimeter and a level, grassed yard with a 32-Amp electrical provision in place for a pool if desired. Soft-closing storage screens for both the garbage and LPG enclosures are unexpected extras, while slimline water tanks totalling 6,000 litres irrigate the easy-care gardens.
This premium location is known for its country in the city atmosphere, with parks and playgrounds, larger house sites and substantial homes, the 40-acre Fig Tree Pocket Equestrian Centre and the famous Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, all just 12km from the CBD and 10 minutes from Indooroopilly Shopping Centre. The Brisbane Airport can be reached in under 30 minutes via the Legacy Way tunnel.
Highly sought-after by families, a choice of quality schools are nearby, with the well-performing Fig Tree Pocket State School and Brisbane Montessori School within the suburb, with the private schools of Ambrose Treacy College and St. Peters Lutheran College between 10-15 minutes away.
