An enviable position and views across Orleigh Park to the river beyond brings a sense of tranquil escapism to this tri-level residence where a high concept floor plan and a select group of luxurious finishes have resulted in a truly superb, lifestyle-focused offering.
Inside, the formal lounge forms a fitting introduction to the home with the balcony and bi-folding doors able to easily usher in river views and cooling breezes, while the eco fireplace and electronically controlled blinds make it just as effortless to ramp up warmth and privacy. Largely open plan in design, this whole level enjoys a natural flow directly from the entry to the rear alfresco living zone which really enforces the connection to the water throughout. Finishes and fixtures have also been carefully considered, with a restrained palette allowing a select group of bespoke materials to shine. These include honed and filled travertine and Calcutta oro marble in the bathrooms, detailed cornicing and just a touch of luxe with embellished lighting. The star of the show however is the 200-year-old recycled oak flooring salvaged from an old flour mill in the Laussane Valley, France. The wonderfully wide boards have been used throughout the home and bring a bespoke edge to the build.
Like the rest of the house, the kitchen showcases elegance through sleek, refined finishes with the neutral Caesarstone bench tops and glass splash backs able to remain minimalist and uncluttered thanks to a generous walk-in pantry and soft-closing cabinetry. A full suite of Miele appliances, (including in-wall espresso machine), perfectly complements the overall design aesthetic. Space for casual living and dining surround the kitchen and are supported by a versatile outdoor room which can be fully incorporated into the home as well as utilised as an outdoor entertainment area. This gives a fantastic, pavilion-style feel and really connects the house with the saltwater pool, the outdoor deck with its vertical garden and Queensland’s ambient weather.
Upstairs, a landing does double duty as a further lounge area as well as separating three bedrooms (all with built-in wardrobes) and the family bathroom from the main bedroom. With space for a lounge, a walk-in wardrobe and a truly sumptuous ensuite complete with free-standing bath and integrated make-up zone, the main bedroom is a veritable parent’s retreat, especially with its private river views and balcony. The ground floor meanwhile, provides space for a home office or media room along with the laundry and a full, third bathroom.
The low-maintenance home has a six star energy rating and features air-conditioning, a Starserve smart system, Vacumaid (with separate attachments on each level), security and video intercom. There is also secure garaging for four vehicles with a real focus on storage throughout, including the option to install a cellar room.
Finished just two years ago, this superbly appointed residence with its tranquil river and parkland views and beautifully detailed finishes delivers a residence unique to this part of the river which is just five minutes from the CBD.
With an outstanding design that effortlessly combines designer living with the demands of a family and an enviable, near-city locale this pristine home has nothing left to do except move in and enjoy.
