SOPHISTICATED CONTEMPORARY RESIDENCE IN PREMIER RIVERSIDE LOCATION
81 Rosebery Terrace, Chelmer QLD 4068
Auction Location: On-Site
A form that delivers spectacular style, substantial scale and sumptuous finishes, this masterfully crafted home in undoubtedly one of Chelmer’s finest, family friendly neighbourhoods is a feast for the senses. With six-metre-high ceilings floating above the stunning glass-edged living area and entertaining terrace, two guest accommodation suites, media room, pool and a professionally designed putting green set in sub-tropical gardens, exceptional design, comfort and lifestyle go hand in hand.
The location is superb, with acres of parkland a few doors down and the river loop cycleway passing by the front door, popular coffee stops a short walk away and a genuine community feel, people just love living here.
Set elevated from the street on 656m2, this two level design utilises expanses of glass, marble, granite and sandstone, rich solid hardwoods and highly polished stainless-steel highlights that imbue a distinct quality.
Forming an imposing entry to the home, the solidly constructed timber front door leads to a voluminous, nine-metre-long ground level living space with a contemporary edge and a black marble fireplace feature. The seemingly sky-high, double height ceiling draws your attention upward and outward, with statement pendant lights, a full wall of glass taking in garden views on one side and to an upper-level walkway that stretches along the inner wall. Formal or relaxed with an art gallery ambience, the layout is extremely versatile.
Step down into the home’s spacious dining area and kitchen; a marble tiled expanse that overlooks the pool, with full-width stacker doors opening to a sandstone paved terrace, sure to be a favourite for all-weather entertaining and weekend family barbeques. Robust hardwood posts reach to support the dramatic, soaring roofline above. The level lawns, putting green and shade covered, glass framed salt-water pool will be a hit with the kids, while you sit back and enjoy a refreshing beverage and some good conversation.
With an elongated black granite topped island offering generous breakfast seating, dark wood and black gloss cabinetry, a very large walk-in pantry plus a potential wine showcase, the kitchen provides functional design together with comprehensive levels of storage. Stainless steel, Italian De’Longhi appliances feature, incorporating a 900mm six-burner gas range and canopy rangehood combination, built-in coffee machine and dishwasher.
With three metre ceilings and higher than average internal doors across both levels, the interiors look and feel incredibly spacious. Large glass doors and windows allow loads of light to fill rooms and louvre placements direct welcome natural ventilation. This residence remains comfortable year round and of course, zoned, ducted air-conditioning is provided to all areas as well as modern, remote controlled ceiling fans to bedrooms.
Adaptable to suit large families, visiting guests and ageing parents that may reside with you, the five king-sized bedrooms with brand new plush carpets, deliver private, premium accommodations of varying styles. On the lower level, a guest bedroom with room for a sofa could be purposed as a dedicated office space; a sliding door to the garden granting garage access. With floor to ceiling marble tiles, the same dark timbers and granite styling as utilised in the kitchen, the luxurious adjoining bathroom doubles as a powder room.
The laundry consists of built-in cabinetry with granite tops to both sides of the room and a frosted glass door opening to the drying line.
A wide, timber, gloss finished staircase leads to the upper level, where you are greeted again by high ceilings, lots of glass and an abundance of space. Polished stainless-steel balustrades frame the landing where a separate living area complete with large balcony enjoying vistas of the treed streetscape, is set up as a media room, with screen and projector. Whether you see it as a handy kitchenette or a fabulous cocktail bar, a stylish, curved black granite counter rests atop built-in cabinetry for ready use.
Divided by a sliding door, two accommodation wings on this level separate guest or teenage living from the master and bedrooms of younger family members. Adjacent to the media area is a private bedroom suite with deluxe ensuite featuring a bath and walk in rain shower. Throughout the home, the colours, textural themes and continuation of appointments maintain the luxury intended at the time of construction.
Much more than a simple hallway, the raised, open walkway that overlooks the living area below is a statement of style, linking bedrooms and leading to the master suite. Enjoying an indulgent, freestanding two-person bath, dual shower and twin vanities in the ensuite, enormous walk-in dressing room with his and hers robes and a view over the terrace and landscaped gardens below, this parent’s only retreat is undeniably restful.
Two further bedrooms have safety window height openings, share a two-way bathroom with bath/shower combination and have built-in robe storage.
With oversized and extra height car accommodation for three vehicles, a narrower roller door permitting access through to the backyard, enormous, secured workshop space and enclosed storage areas, there is ample room for bikes, trailer, a jet ski and to house trade supplies or business equipment. The large driveway apron also provides off-street parking for additional cars.
A video intercom system at the covered gatehouse entry offers an added level of security to the residence and a large underground water storage tank with pump keeps the pool topped up and irrigates the greenery. Planted with flowering ornamentals and fruit-producing tropical trees, the manicured, landscaped surroundings are a garden lover’s delight.
Close to a choice of excellent state and private schools and playing fields, 4km to the Queensland Tennis Centre and boasting no less than 5 golf courses within a 5km radius, Chelmer’s upmarket location offers amenity and an outstanding outdoor lifestyle for all members of the family. With the world class Indooroopilly Shopping Centre and local boutique stores and the vibrant dining establishments of Graceville only 4 minutes away by car, this locale is bursting with convenience and liveability.
