This luxurious home in prestigious Kenmore has 42m of riverfrontage and was designed and built by 25-time HIA award winners TAK Group; recipients of the 2009 HIA Australian House of the Year. Fully fenced and nestled on a 2382m2 block this residence melds contemporary chic with stunning architectural flair to produce a modern, split-level masterpiece of grand proportions.
A gated entry and slate feature panel create a stylish impression of this nautically inspired dwelling that appears “as new”. The airconditioned residence has a vast floor space of 900sqm and successfully fuses a range of textures and materials with chic accoutrements. Rare New South Wales Spotted Gum floorings adorn the foyer and lead to an opulent, plush carpeted formal dining room and a wall of floor-to-ceiling glass overlooking a large pool. A generously proportioned office and guest suite are also set on this lower level.
From the foyer, a walkway flanked by two glass panel walls acts as an internal bridge to link both sides of the house while circular glass “windows” in the floor provide additional glimpses of the pool beneath the walkway. On the opposite side of the “bridge” a super-sized living zone is bathed in white, floored with Spotted Gum and encompasses a gourmet kitchen with Caesarstone benches, stainless steel appliances and built-in Miele coffee machine. The kitchen sits adjacent to a contemporary casual living and dining zone with built-in bar, bar fridge and servery window to the veranda. Banks of bi-folds open the space to the sizeable semi-circular deck allowing for a seamless blurring of boundaries between in and out.
Two bedrooms, central bathroom with spa bath and river views and additional bedroom with ensuite, are situated around the corner from the kitchen. This mid-level has a powder room and media room with surround sound system and built-in cabinetry. A feature timber, glass and stainless steel staircase leads to the uppermost level and flows into a sumptuous master bedroom with river-view balcony, luxurious ensuite and an enormous walk-in wardrobe and dressing room. The stairwell also descends to a rumpus/games room, gymnasium and provides access to a landscaped back yard with state-of-the art cubby house, swings, sandpit and entertaining deck overlooking the river. There is also a 12x3m pontoon connected to a boardwalk from the yard. Kingfisher Place is only minutes from parks, Kenmore Village, Kenmore Tavern and Indooroopilly Shopping Town.
