Inner city convenience and luxury living combine on a substantial scale at this design built, dual level family home that is only a short walk from the Kangaroo Point Cliffs, South Bank and The Gabba. With gallery inspired, light-filled spaces, an elevated, elegant and breezy entertainer’s terrace to watch the city’s fireworks from, lavish master suite with private balcony, skyscraper views and high-end finishes throughout, this is a unique home and setting, with features destined to exceed your list of desires.
The parkside location brings back after school and weekend memories of kicking a ball around or playing cricket until dark, before being called in for dinner. Having direct, large gate access to Raymond Park, affectionately called Pineapple Park, with its cricket pitches, basketball courts, skate bowl, dog park and soccer field, the kids, Mum and Dad and the family dog too, will be kept active.
Designed to deliver sophisticated spaces that flow from inside to out, this residence effortlessly and stylishly caters for large gatherings and celebrations, with children having their own entertainment space in the separate rumpus, games and media zone, just steps from the solar heated 6m x 4m inground pool.
The home captures the best of Brisbane’s climate thanks to the most favourable north-south aspect. Soak up the morning’s warmth in winter on the master’s sun-drenched balcony, and enjoy long, cool, shaded summers spent relaxing on the rear terrace, overlooking the pool and park beyond.
Without compromise, the attention to detail is discernible. Excellent finishes continue between levels, showcasing high gloss porcelain and supremely durable Jarrah timber floors, Caesarstone surfaces and glare minimising tinted glass, premium Villeroy & Boch ceramics and Grohe tapware inclusions.
Glass edges the entry foyer and stairwell, making displayed artworks dazzle, as you ascend the timber staircase to the extra-height upper level of the residence. Expansive, open living, dining and kitchen areas are fresh and light, with an enormous five panel stacker door arrangement allowing a seamless transition out onto the tiled terrace, with its remote-controlled privacy inducing and light filtering, full-height screens and parkland views. Sit and watch the kids play, from this elevated position, or step down to join them in the pool.
In the living area, a contemporary, gas fuelled fireplace imbues a calming ambience, while high set, elongated window openings allow plenty of light, yet maintain seclusion. Maintaining a style that remains timeless through the years, pure, classic white gloss 2 pac cabinetry, satin stainless steel cabinet hardware and German Miele appliances combine with 40mm Caesarstone surfaces, cementing the attention to detail and the owner’s commitment to incorporating high quality, dependable fixtures and fittings within the home.
A Miele 5 burner gas cooktop, oven, separate steam oven, plate warming drawer and dishwasher deliver reliable results, whether cooking up everyday favourites for the family, or when entertaining friends.
With five bedrooms in total, the luxurious and completely private, king-sized master wing boasts individual his and hers walk in robes and an ultra-indulgent ensuite. This is a space naturally illuminated by its ideal north aspect, where you can unwind by the lights of the city’s skyscrapers at night and partake of your first coffee of the day outside on the private balcony. Custom made to suit, the luxurious, rectangular Villeroy & Boch spa bath features soft bubbling and invigorating spa jets to soothe both body and mind at the end of a busy day. Dual undermount basins sit within a large, stone topped, wall hung vanity, providing stylish, streamlined storage.
All featuring built-in robes, another bedroom on the top level offers the comforting option for a nursery nearby to the main or can be utilised as work from home space; powder room amenities resting in the hall adjacent.
On ground level, three spacious bedrooms present stylish children’s and guests’ accommodation areas. A very large, fully featured bathroom, that can also be easily accessed via a hallway that opens to the side of the house, means no wet footprints through the downstairs living when the kids come in from swimming. An additional powder room too, boosts amenity for visitors. Grohe tapware and wide, stone topped, wall hung vanity units to this level, again reaffirm the upmarket inclusions used house wide.
Boasting an abundance of laundry space, linen, an under-stair security and IT hub and general storage throughout, everything will be kept tidily away. The extra-height double garage has a wall of sliding door cupboards.
Fully, securely and stylishly fenced to complement the contemporary style of the home, a remote gate allows driveway parking for an additional vehicle. With alarm and camera system, Crimsafe screens, LED lighting, zoned and ducted air-conditioning and twin underslab concrete water tanks to irrigate gardens, the homeowner’s no compromise approach to ensuring an easy living, low maintenance, functional and capable environment, is top class.
With Brisbane being announced as the host for the 2032 Olympic Games, amenity rich locales such as Kangaroo Point will be in demand and are destined to see fantastic growth. Near to highly regarded, inner Brisbane private schooling options, quick access to the Pacific Motorway and Clem7, attend sporting events at The Gabba without fuss, dine at River Quay Green at South Bank or enjoy a morning walk along the cliff top overlooking the city. With the new Kangaroo Point Green Bridge construction underway, the weekday commute and weekend bike ride will be easier to navigate from this fantastic location.
