The jewel of the Centenary suburbs, this exclusive riverside address boasts 24 metres of absolute river frontage with the most desirable, perfect north aspect. A classic residence with a unique flair, this home features polished granite floors and raked ceilings, a movie theatre with dynamic sound, home office and studio, and a private pontoon to access all that this wonderful waterfront location has to offer.
Set well above the 2011 flood level, this spacious, two-level home captures uninterrupted views of the Brisbane River. From the interior living spaces to the vast outdoor entertaining terrace and fully tiled pool, enjoy the tranquil seclusion, privacy and prestige available to only a select few.
Protected ironbark timbers originally sourced from Moreton Island and recovered from the Eagle Street Pier, form the front fence and secure gated entrance to the residence. Milled into wide planks, these robust palings complement the landscaped courtyard design and easy-care plantings.
Blue Pearl granite tiles feature at the entry and lead to the central lounge room, where an expanse of glass casts your vision outward. This spacious and very comfortable room with soaring ceiling design and open log-burning fireplace, has built-in 2Pac entertainment unit and cocktail cabinetry to accommodate restful evenings spent in front of the television and to offer refreshments to guests upon arrival. A formal dining room overlooking the front courtyard, sits opposite.
Step outside to the north facing, terracotta tiled, covered entertaining areas. Perfect for that morning coffee, a quiet alfresco dinner and for hosting large parties, the multiple terrace spaces look over the fully tiled freeform inground pool and BBQ kitchen. The river is, the ultimate backdrop.
For those who appreciate a fine, cinematic movie watching experience, the dedicated home cinema has dynamic audio output and advanced acoustic treatments that render the theatre soundproof to the outside. Styled to resemble Brisbane’s Her Majesty’s Theatre, luxurious brocade drapes and darkened walls, dimmed lighting and the red carpet are reminiscent of times past.
A work from home office with cathedral ceiling and a river facing wall of glass that opens to an elevated balcony and lunch terrace, is both functional and inspiring to the creative mind. Originally a functioning commercial office with amenities and kitchenette facilities, studio space and plenty of storage, this uppermost level remains ideally separated from the home’s living and accommodation areas.
Spotted gum timber floors carry throughout the casual family meals and kitchen areas, and again, these rooms enjoy those glorious river views. Cooking and entertaining will remain a joy with a vista like this. High, sloping ceilings with glass infills, bathe the residence with a soft light as it crosses the north face of the home. White, gloss finished under bench and overhead cabinets and bar top servery, are topped with black granite. There is a hidden appliance cupboard and walk-in pantry, large fridge space, gas cooktop, AEG pyrolytic oven and Miele dishwasher.
The accommodation spaces see the master suite ideally separated from children’s bedrooms. This private, adults only zone has a luxurious, in-room, black oval spa bath and retreat sitting area that overlooks rainforest gardens and the river through a frameless corner glass juncture. With his and hers walk in robes and a freshly updated ensuite, remote operated blinds for light control and recessed lighting features, this spacious suite promotes relaxation and restfulness.
There are three children’s bedrooms, two of these are queen sized and all have built-in wardrobes and courtyard views. Bathroom amenities are centrally located, with a spa bath and rain shower, Blue Pearl granite vanity top surface and separate toilet. Mirrored wall cabinets provide handy additional storage in both the family bathroom and ensuite.
A private guest suite with powder room and built-in robes is situated at the opposite end of the home and is well suited to ageing parents and teenagers, as well as visitors. All areas of the residence are air conditioned with individual, in-wall split systems.
Secure garaging for four vehicles is a wonderful asset to this residence. Whether a collector or a family with teenagers, this valuable lock up accommodation has workshop, tool room and storage space. A two-panel security alarm and video visitor gate intercom system enable a comfort that the property is being protected.
This very large allotment has been extensively landscaped to ensure privacy from neighbouring properties. Tiered to allow walking access along reclaimed brick pathways that meander down towards the writer’s studio and private pontoon, the elevation of the homesite is evident. A private, cedar clad open cabin has the very best river position, sure to invoke ideas and ingenuity. The private 6m x 4m pontoon has deep water mooring.
You will be amazed at just how quiet this riverside location is. Close as it is to major arterials and conveniences, traffic noise is inaudible. Brisbane’s CBD is 11km away via the Centenary Highway and a trip to the airport will take only 25 minutes.
