Refined and intelligent, discover the unparalleled style and uncompromising comfort of this bespoke residence resting on a private, pristine landholding of just over one hectare, only 13km from the City. Whether welcoming a few friends for an intimate dinner party or hosting a grand celebration, this is an entertainer’s home for all occasions. Breathtaking vistas span 180 degrees, taking in city skyline glimpses and wide ranging views of the surrounding mountain ranges and valleys, delivering a striking backdrop at any time of day.
Thoughtfully planned and designed thirteen years ago by the current owners in collaboration with Paul Uhlmann Architects, this beautiful home provides a restful retreat for all the family; a contemporary haven in which to unwind and recharge. Positioned to take advantage of its most desirable northern aspect, exacting passive design principles and climate comfort features have been utilised to create a truly sophisticated residence that effortlessly adapts to the changing seasons.
Hugging the landscape, the considered multi-level design incorporates versatile indoor and outdoor living spaces to suit growing families and ever-changing lifestyle requirements. An imposing alfresco terrace with outdoor kitchen and teppanyaki grill basks in the winter sun, making it a favourite spot to enjoy a morning coffee and contemplate the day ahead. Perched adjacent is the solar heated infinity edged pool, luxurious in its form with uninterrupted views across the property and beyond.
Exteriors are undoubtedly stylishly sleek and orderly, blending masonry and stone with the warmth of vast timber decking, and framed by established plantings and mature ornamental trees. Interior design elements of rich jarrah, stone, brilliant white, charcoal and louvred openings have been used extensively throughout to create a sensory feast of texture, airflow, colour and contrast.
A central focal point of this stunning home is the enormous open flow living, cooking and casual dining space. With 4.7m high ceilings and tall expanses of glass, this is an elegant yet flexible area to gather and talk, to prepare and share meals, and to read and relax.
Superbly functional, the kitchen hosts a complete suite of innovative Miele appliances, premium Liebherr double door refrigerator and an impressive 5.5 metre long stone island bench. With a large butler’s pantry boasting clever shelving systems and hygienic stainless steel food preparation surfaces, small appliances and pantry items will be hidden from view. A soft ambient lighting feature above the door casts a gentle glow over the entire area.
Constructed only three years ago, the seamless Bligh Graham Architects’ designed extension to the original build has created an enormous private dining room, resplendent with glass, stone and jarrah features. Descend to the lower level, covered and cooled by a dense concrete formed roof-top garden with skylight, where industrial inspired, self-contained living spaces offer multiple possibilities for teenagers, extended family or guests. Stacker doors open to a secluded terrace with log burning fireplace and conversational seating area.
Accessed securely, the upper level entry foyer to the home is welcoming with a 1.5 metre wide library walkway leading to the bedrooms and amenities. Passing the formal lounge room, this serene space with high ceilings, gas fireplace and stone feature wall exudes luxury and restfulness.
Four built-in bedrooms and three bathrooms grace this level; one bedroom and adjoining bathroom currently utilised as guest accommodation. The remaining three bedrooms including the master suite, benefit from their direct connection to the outdoors, either via louvred openings facing the northern edged hallway or the glass framed balcony overlooking the glistening pool.
The lavish master is a private sanctuary located at the far end of the home. A retreat inspired ensuite with double vanity and luxurious two person bath, the area is complemented by a large walk in robe with an abundance of built in shelving and hanging space.
A Schneider C-Bus smart home automation system enables control of the home’s lighting, advanced security, pool pump and garden irrigation timing from the convenience of your phone. Featuring 13.6kWh of solar panels and a 110,000 litre rainwater tank, energy and water usage costs are kept to a minimum. The double Colorbond Steel shed has 3 phase power and in total, lock-up garaging is provided for 5 cars, accommodating extra height vehicles and trailers.
With fruiting orchard trees and a herb and vege garden, this really is a home that embraces its semi-rural setting. Conveniently close to schools and the shopping hubs of Indooroopilly and Kenmore, Brookfield Gardens and the popular Wild Canary Bistro, Brookfield retains a true community feel that its residents cherish.
