Stylish, modern and functional, this architecturally designed home(Recently refreshed) is perched on top of a hill with city views in one of Brisbane’s most prestigious suburbs. It is easy to see why this four bedroom, three bathroom family home was a finalist in the 2008 Design Institute of Australia’s QDS Awards. Its impressive 22m street frontage is achieved with a contemporary house design, skillion roof, modern landscaping, grand front entrance and welcoming greenery.
Inside, the home revolves around a central courtyard that allows natural light to pour into the surrounding spaces. Harmoniously integrating indoor and outdoor living, it embraces the city’s sub-tropical climate and provides the perfect setting for a relaxed lifestyle. To one side of the central courtyard, the open plan kitchen and living room are ideal for comfortable and convenient family living and entertaining. The kitchen is smart, spacious and stylish with plenty of bench space and work areas tucked away from the main front bench overlooking the living area. Timeless and sophisticated, the kitchen features dark grey two pack cabinets, marble benches, a five-burner gas cooktop, quality Miele stainless steel appliances, inbuilt coffee machine and contemporary lighting.
Sliding glass doors open back fully from the living room onto the striking outdoor entertaining area, complete with sparkling pool, seamless glass pool fence, timber deck and stone feature wall. The front deck is the perfect space to relax with a glass of wine while taking in the city views. The beautiful, fully fenced front yard has a lush lawn, frangipani tree and low maintenance gardens including an area downstairs for children to play that creates a welcoming and family friendly space.
Back inside, the master bedroom boasts a wraparound Juliette balcony, an impressive ensuite with luxurious floor to ceiling tiles, twin vanity and designer fittings as well as a spacious walk-in-robe. The remaining three bedrooms include built-in wardrobes and ceiling fans to keep the whole family happy. Additional spaces include a media room behind the central courtyard on the upper level and a rumpus room, full laundry and storage rooms on the lower level, which is accessed via an elegant, light and bright, internal timber staircase. Other highlights include ducted air-conditioning, timber privacy screens, contemporary colour scheme, security system and double lock up garage.
Set on 481m2 of premium hilltop land, every corner of this property has been put to use to create a low maintenance and comfortable home suitable for young and old. Close to schools, restaurants, cafes, public transport, Suncorp Stadium and just a few minutes drive to the CBD, this spectacular home has everything to suit the modern family.
