Set amidst 3.5 tranquil acres and possessing an atmosphere that is akin to the feeling of escaping to a luxury resort, this magnificent family homestead epitomises the sentiment that life is best when shared with others. With extraordinary levels of craftsmanship, the home reveals voluminous living and entertaining spaces, a 24m x 12m infinity edged pool with spectacular central pavilion, professional gym and an exclusive parent’s wing that is a sanctuary of pure indulgence.
From the moment you drive in, past the tennis court and expanses of lawns and towering eucalypts, this semi-rural, horse friendly acreage environment immediately calms the mind and body. Seemingly far removed from city life and its pace, the CBD remains conveniently only 11km away by car.
Welcome to stylish Queensland-style living, where lifestyle and complete enjoyment of your surroundings is paramount. Be greeted by rich, satin finished timbers and hand-laid intricate stone feature walls, high ceilings, an abundance of glass, and smooth honed porcelain tiles that flow from the interior’s everyday family living spaces to the exquisitely private outdoor terraces.
Architecturally designed and constructed to the highest standard, discover the free-flowing, reimagined layout with its 1000 bottle climate-controlled wine room, banquet-sized formal dining and lodge styled lounge, and dual sided wood burning fireplace that affords comfort and repose.
Whether welcoming a few friends over, celebrating large family events or hosting intimate dinner parties, there are entertaining spaces and games areas for all occasions and all ages. Movie buffs and sports fans will love the enormous home cinema with giant screen, featuring tiered seating for eight and a plush floor play and bean bag zone that young kids will love. Dynamic surround sound speakers in the cinema and surrounding indoor casual and outdoor living areas are iPad controlled.
At the heart of the home, the gourmet lover’s kitchen and accompanying butler’s pantry function brilliantly. Swiss made, state-of-the-art V-Zug precision appliances feature, with combi-steam oven, combi-microwave oven, coffee machine, induction cooktop with teppanyaki grill and dishwasher. Clever additions such as a fully featured Zip HydroTap and mini sink, integrated multi-functional CoolDrawers and Quasair rangehood attest to the high standard of inclusions within this residence.
A broad freestanding central island with waterfall edging is dressed in a soft grey engineered stone and, seating four each side, is perfect for indoor entertaining and rushed family breakfasts. The sumptuous stone continues to all surfaces, serveries and splashbacks, and the simplistic, yet elegant, shaker style cabinetry houses an abundance of must-have drawer storage.
Stacker doors offer a seamless integration from inside to out; a built-in bbq kitchen, alfresco dining and laid-back outdoor living resting under an eye-catching, vaulted timber finished ceiling. On one fluid level, the unobstructed view across the glistening pool, through the pavilion and to the trees beyond, is nothing short of breathtaking.
This home features two master suites, the first, spacious and fully featured accommodation that would suit ageing parents or adult children and their partners. Sliding doors open to a private deck that overlooks the grounds and there is a freestanding bath, shower for two and luxurious dual vanity in the ensuite.
As a 2016 built addition to the original residence, an ultra-indulgent king master retreat awaits at the end of a wide, smooth timbered gallery walkway; past an elongated study nook and louvred openings that fill the space with refreshing breezes and natural light. With a Zen like feel and an uncompromising level of privacy and detail, this secluded haven must be seen to be appreciated.
Lavishly soft carpets lead through the grand double door entrance to the suite and continue throughout. A superbly quiet, personal office with bespoke cabinetry looks out to a calming water feature. This grand master bedroom with wraparound terrace takes in restful views across the pool and tropical gardens; a beautiful perspective to wake up to. An opulent dressing room with central pendant and ensuite with freestanding bath and walk in rain shower makes this adult’s only space truly exclusive.
The children’s and guest accommodation wing houses another three spacious bedrooms, two of which share a two-way bathroom, the third with ensuite. All rooms enjoy peaceful and private vistas across the acreage estate and are well ventilated. The bathrooms and two additional powder rooms adjacent to the high use living areas of the home, are resplendent with high end finishes and well considered inclusions.
Practical storage throughout different areas of the home is extensive, with numerous linen cupboards and a spacious built-in laundry that leads to drying courts for use in all weather. Ducted and zoned air conditioning and vacuum systems service the entire home.
With garaging for three vehicles under the main roof and a separate steel garage that accommodates another three oversized vehicles, horse float, boat etc. there is room for all the family to ensure their cars are undercover.
With three phase power and rainwater storage tank, the large shed has its own independent driveway access, away from the main residence. Enclosed within the rear space and accessed by an enormous barn door, is a commercially sized and professionally fitted out gym, with an extensive supply of weight and cardio machines for multiple users.
A second steel shed has been constructed to provide safe and secure horse accommodation, with two stallion rated internal stables, dedicated feed and tack spaces, and an outdoor concreted wash bay or float parking area.
The grounds are set up for children to enjoy and explore. With a chicken coop, vege gardens, flying fox with raised platforms and championship sized floodlit tennis court with thatched roof pavilion, there are plenty of options to ensure you keep active. The tennis court surface is a premium artificial grass that is designed to withstand Australian conditions.
Offering a location that is near to the shopping and amenities hubs of Kenmore and Indooroopilly, and serviced by passing private school buses, convenience for families is second to none. Two minutes away are the farmers markets and equestrian facilities of the beautiful Brookfield Showgrounds, with Brookfield Produce providing all your horse needs. Stop for breakfast with friends at the Brookfield General Store and you’ll feel as though you’re right in the middle of a country town.
This stunning residence and its 13 946m2 acreage grounds present the perfect getaway for the whole family, and one that can be enjoyed every day.
