DOUBLE STOREY PENTHOUSE WITH ROOFTOP POOL AND PONTOON
Luxurious, private, sophisticated yet totally liveable; this grand, penthouse occupies the two top levels of New Farm’s Solitaire Complex – an artful riverfront masterpiece designed to bask in the dynamic river and cityscape that enfolds it at every turn. Created originally as the developer’s own, private sky home, it is now offered for sale for the first time, a sophisticated offering of unashamed luxury, complete with rooftop plunge pool and sole use of the property’s 12m pontoon.
In addition to its position, size and quality of build, it is the roof top level that absolutely sets this listing apart, bringing all-encompassing views to the versatile space. Complete with a full bathroom, massive outdoor terrace (with an electric retractable awning) and adjacent barbecue area, the zone is perfect for entertaining on the grandest of scales. It’s also possible however to take advantage of its private lift access and make the entire floor into a huge media room/gym or transform it into one of the city’s finest main bedrooms. Whatever its use, with a panorama encompassing the Story Bridge, the river and the CBD in its entirety, it is certainly one of the rarest and finest vantage points in all of Brisbane.
On the main floor, the open plan living area is very much integrated with the sprawling outdoor balcony, with the design focusing on creating a great flow through of breezes and views, with vertical Vergolas to control sunlight, weather and privacy. The kitchen occupies one entire wall and incorporates floor to ceiling storage, soft closing cabinetry and the full gamut of Miele appliances including in-wall espresso machine, gas and induction cook tops, an integrated dishwasher and space for a wine fridge.
Designed by renowned architect Liam Proberts, the rest of the layout is as functional as it is stylish, with marble, custom timber and a proliferation of glass all on show throughout. The three ensuited bedrooms are all generous in proportion and enjoy the same quality and quiet elegance as displayed within the rest of the apartment. This is especially so of the master bedroom with its riverside spa bath, walk-in wardrobe and balcony access. In addition,there is a well-proportioned media room/study and plentiful storage including a drying room installed beside the laundry and further storage options surrounding the apartment’s three car spaces in the secure garage.
Situated in trendy New Farm, the lifestyle afforded is one of afternoon walks by the river, weekends spent entertaining on the balcony and evenings occupied by one of the many eateries and wine bars located nearby. In the current economic clime, the Solitaire complex is indeed a rarity. Just one apartment per floor, and just six floors. An unashamed nod to unabridged luxury, looks and lifestyle, of which, this penthouse is the undisputed jewel in the crown.
