Adopting fundamental principles of good design, this brilliantly conceptualised 2017 completed residence delivers exclusivity, style and absolute privacy. With a multi-level layout that edges into its hillside landscape effortlessly, indoor and outdoor living spaces that comfort and adapt across the changing seasons, an elevator that links all floors, river and city views plus a separate, fully self-contained two bedroom apartment, this home shines with poise, purpose and inner-city convenience.
Brought to life by Brisbane architect Shaye McLean, the structure takes full advantage of the unconventional, L-shaped 468m2 allotment. The intuitive placement of glass and louvred openings afford not only an abundance of natural light to fill living, working and accommodation locations, but offers differing glimpses of sky and city lights, and allows moments to stop, reflect and enjoy the calming tropical garden vistas.
Positioned in a quiet, elevated no through road setting, the unobtrusive, dark Monument hued exteriors of the home make way for interiors that exude an undeniable warmth and comfort, with rich Blackbutt timber floors, stairs and accents, pops of colour, and the use of contrasting bare concrete and bespoke tiles.
Lounge, dine and relax in absolute style. The central level boasts elegant living, polished dining and casual areas that are generous in size and incredibly peaceful. Captivating and ever so versatile, these beautiful spaces will resonate with your needs and desires throughout the course of the day, all the time ensuring you remain connected with loved ones through ingeniously placed wall openings, and via upper-level landings and walkways.
Custom buffet cabinetry edges the dining room, providing stylish cocktail and glassware storage, an entertaining must-have. A chic pendant shade hangs above where the table stands, and windows beyond offer an elevated northern aspect toward Fortitude Valley and Newstead. Step outside onto one of several outdoor entertaining areas, take in the far-reaching views or admire the masses of flowering heliconias while you collect herbs for the kitchen.
The sophisticated second living room features a stunning gas log fireplace, a cosy addition for those cool winter nights. Select a book from the adjoining built-in library and office space and sit yourself down on the sofa or head outside onto the terrace which wraps around this side of the home. Dark vertical battens and brick hard landscaping reinforces the architectural flair, while the premium Vanguard remote operated blinds protect and shade.
Supremely functional, with superior appliances and inclusions, the gourmet kitchen is a delight to cook in and one sure to impress your friends from. The freestanding, waterfall edged island is dressed in sumptuous dolomite and is purely for serving and dining. Seating 3-4 comfortably along its length, this statement piece contrasts with the meal preparation and cooking side of the kitchen, where a stainless-steel countertop and soft close cabinetry in the softest putty grey holds a V-ZUG Combi-steam oven, induction cooktop, Quasair rangehood, fully integrated side-by-side Liebherr fridges and Asko dishwasher. A handy Zip Hydrotap provides instant boiling, chilled and chilled/filtered water on demand, and the espresso-coloured marble fish scale splashback tiles add an in-vogue stamp.
A three-person elevator ties each of the levels together, providing an alternative access to stairs; perfect for young children, visitors and ageing relatives, and is a boon when bringing shopping and supplies in.
The master suite is situated in its own wing, remaining private and blissfully quiet. Lie in bed and look out towards the city skyline, wake and glance across to the Brisbane River as you get ready to start the day. An electronic external screen operates automatically to shield from weather and light as necessary. With a custom built his and hers walk-in-robe offering dedicated storage areas, a luxurious ensuite with Methven rain and rail shower combination, skylight above and minimal glass to clean, dolomite topped vanity and exquisite tiling, the inclusions reinforce the quality evident in the entire build.
Two built-in bedrooms in the children’s wing offer different outlooks, capture breezes and feature designer influences including a pitched ceiling and desk seating area. Fans and ducted air conditioning comfort the entire residence. An upscale family bathroom separates the bedrooms and dazzles with its designated wet area holding an elegant freestanding bath and walk-in shower, and eye-catching black and white timber plank look tiles.
The beautifully finished powder room that services the living areas will wow guests, resplendent with a stunning ovoid shaped pedestal basin and enormous wall tiles in luscious shades of Verdigris, sourced from high end suppliers, Elite Bathrooms and Tiles. Bright and sunny, the laundry boasts under bench appliance provision, great storage, a Robin Hood ironing centre and direct access to the outside drying court.
With its own exclusive entry, and disconnected from the main home, the contemporary designed, two bedroom dual living suite at ground level provides the perfect independent space for adult children and their partners, accommodation for the family’s live-in au pair and offers exciting rental or Airbnb income potential. Ultra-modern, with concrete slab floor and roof above, the space is surrounded by tropical plants, is secluded and tranquil. With timber joinery highlights and an industrial flair, stone benchtops, Bosch induction cooktop, oven and dishwasher, air-conditioning and Crimsafe screens, this apartment is not only beautiful, but functional and secure. Both bedrooms are built-in, and the bathroom/laundry combination sees mosaics in soft blues, greens and lemon adding colour and life.
Garage parking is provided for two cars, plus there is an additional visitor’s space and driveway parking for another two cars if required. Intercom access for guests at the entry gate and a covered walkway and path leading to the home and apartment, past lush plantings, offers interest while providing security. A very large storage area adjoins the garage.
