Auction Location: On-Site
A statement of purposeful design, multi-level versatility and entertaining wow factor, this stunning contemporary residence by award-winning local builder Klinge Constructions and Developments shines. Brilliantly stepped into this quiet hillside location, clever architectural and lush landscape inclusions deliver light-filled, ultra-private family relaxation zones, cool, richly detailed interiors and spectacular outdoor living spaces. The home features an elevated pool, sun-drenched and shaded terraces, a media room, wine cellar and second living area, an exquisite Smeg-appointed kitchen and a luxurious master retreat with bath, double shower and spectacular city and treetop views.
Opposite a densely forested reserve with walking trails and open parkland, it is hard to believe that this residence is only 4km from the CBD. Possessing a restful, resort-like ambience, the refined style, open plan layout and exquisite finishes of this one-off design will have you never wanting to leave home. At the entrance, a staircase with a soaring void and feature lighting pendant above welcomes and directs to the main living floor.
Premium features abound, from the sumptuous, deep stone countertops and high-performance flooring solutions to the contrasting cabinetry finishes that display deliberate attention to detail. Utilising dark charcoals and matt-black, oak and dark hardwood, beige travertine and white marble styling, every aspect is tied together in perfect unison and takes on an intensity that is distinct and luxurious.
Flowing living areas take advantage of the desirable northerly aspect, with high ceilings, louvres and tall stacker doors allowing loads of light and fresh air to flood internal spaces. There are luxe, floor-length drapes in the living and dining areas, with ducted air-conditioning installed throughout. Step out to the sophisticated covered and double-height entertaining areas with rooflines overhead lined in timber and poolside terraces edged with frameless glass.
Find your spot to unwind at the end of the day, dine in or outside with a bottle you’ve selected from the glass-doored cellar, invite the kids’ friends over for a movie and a swim and just sit back and enjoy the sounds of the birds singing away in the trees. Overlooking the large, sparkling pool and tropical gardens, the darkened media, TV or sports room with balcony offers a fantastic place to watch the big game with mates.
With a see-through glass splashback, the stylish galley kitchen and the adjoining butler’s pantry are bursting with must-have features and high-end appliances. An elongated island seats many, and there are plentiful banks of wide drawers, full-height oak cabinets, a plumbed-in, double-door width fridge recess and a coffee-making and small appliance area. Featured are a natural gas Smeg 5-burner cooktop, multi-function oven and microwave built in at an easily accessible wall height and a fully integrated Smeg dishwasher.
Bedroom accommodation wings are separated by stairs and a versatile second living area, parent’s lounge or a work-from-home office adjacent to the private master suite. With windows on three sides capturing elevated vistas of the morning’s light, the bushland reserve and the cityscape, the master is a king-sized suite of pure luxury. There is a two-way entrance into the walk-in robe with extensive, custom-designed cabinetry and a lavish, floor-to-ceiling tiled ensuite with his and hers showers and a large oval bath that takes in fantastic views.
The remaining three bedrooms have high-placed windows for maximum privacy, large, mirrored sliding robes and share a separately zoned bathroom that works well for busy families. The same level of finishes continues throughout each impeccably styled bathroom including the guest amenities on the central living floor, with the laundry having lots of storage, stone benchtops and a stackable washer/dryer appliance area.
Boasting a two-car garage plus additional under-roof parking for another two vehicles, this property is well suited to families with older children seeking to shelter their cars over the stormy summer months. The 485m2 fully fenced allotment is ideal for children and pets with a private, level grassed yard and gated side entrances. Landscaping has been expertly designed and constructed with solid block raised garden walls, tall hedges, fragrant climbing jasmine and tropical plants. This a truly low-maintenance home with nothing more that needs to be done.
The quiet, family-friendly location has very little passing traffic and is home to many contemporary new builds and classic homes undertaking major renovation projects. Well-placed for commuter convenience and arterial access, this residence is near a host of quality schools, boutique retail, dining, entertainment and recreation areas. Bulimba’s eclectic Oxford Street strip and Carindale Shopping Centre are situated within a 10 minute drive.
School-aged children will be well catered for with several high-performing state and private educational institutions nearby. You can walk to Seven Hills State School, with Lourdes Hill College, Anglican Church Grammar School and Coorparoo Secondary College positioned within a 3km radius of this address.
