A robust, gallery-like masterpiece five years in the making, this Kevin Hayes-designed, multi-level contemporary makes a bold statement, edged into the hillside of this exclusive, absolute riverfront setting. Completed in 2011, the bespoke residence inspires creativity and purpose, relaxation and restfulness, with voluminous indoor and outdoor living areas, supremely functional working and retreat spaces and bedrooms that have calming river, pool and garden outlooks.

Impressive from its substantial size to its list of finishes, this home situated within a very quiet, no-through road location presents luxury living, refined entertaining and unrivalled seclusion. Upon a deep, 1166m2 allotment that rises steeply above the river’s edge, the entire house site has remained completely unaffected by prior flood events here in Brisbane.

There is a teenager’s retreat, games or media zone, an enormous light-filled studio and office space that overlooks the river and a fully self-contained guest, extended family or au pair accommodation suite with an outdoor terrace situated on the lower level. The accessible elevator accesses all but this lower ground floor.

The main level and its immense proportions are where you will spend most of your time. With interiors akin to that of a contemporary art gallery, the clean lines and amount of wall space deliver grand-scale surfaces upon which to showcase valued art collections. Central to the two-zone living area is a dual-sided log-burning fireplace, with expanses of glass to allow outlooks over the recirculating waters of the fully tiled inground pool, pond and cascading, rock water feature. Step out onto the river-facing deck and enjoy an ideal entertaining aspect that is warm in winter and cool in summer.

Storage requirements have also been well considered, with custom-built office desk, wine cellar, open display and closed bookcase cabinetry and built-in cupboards not only to bedrooms but positioned to keep electrical, pool and air-conditioning equipment and services discreetly hidden from view.
