Landmark Absolute Riverfront Sub-Penthouse With Panoramic River And City Views
Auction Location: On-Site
Classic architecture and generous 1980s’ design never go out of style, and this very special sub-penthouse on the 10th floor of the tightly held North Shore development delivers the quintessential River City lifestyle that so many desire. With a versatile layout encapsulating near 360-degree views, an oversized balcony with the most perfect north-east orientation, a meticulously maintained building and grounds with heated indoor pool and spa, saunas and expansive riverside lawns and gardens, living here is serene, with the best of Brisbane on your doorstep.
Taking in sweeping vistas of both the St Lucia and Toowong reaches of the river, the green expanses of West End’s Orleigh Park opposite and of the panoramic city skyline beyond, the location is breathtaking, and one you will never tire of. From your private vantage point, watch the CityCats, rowers and stand up paddleboarders throughout the day and then catch the mesmerising lights of the city and surrounds at night.
House sized dimensions defy the confines of apartment living, with spacious, open plan living and dining areas effortlessly accommodating treasured furnishings and artwork. With sumptuous marble tiled floors offering an elegant base for all décors, enjoy the views from inside or step out through either of the large sliding door openings onto the full width balcony. Whether sharing a late breakfast, hosting a large family lunch, a dinner party for guests or a casual get together to celebrate one of Brisbane’s spectacular fireworks events, this outdoor space beckons.
Modern updates to the exteriors see contemporary glass balustrades granting unobstructed views, soft ivory-coloured tiles and versatile, moving glass panels that can be easily positioned to protect against the elements when required or stacked away out of sight, when not.
Reconfigured to meet the needs of the current owners, the redesigned and renovated, light-filled kitchen delivers 30mm black granite benchtop surfaces and sleek white cabinetry, two separate breakfast bar seating areas and European Smeg and Bosch appliances. With induction cooking, an abundance of storage and tree top and skyscraper views, this kitchen will be a joy to spend time preparing meals in. What you will notice too, is just how quiet this sub-penthouse, and this prestigious St Lucia locale, is.
Currently designed to present as three bedrooms, an easy conversion could return the apartment to its original four-bedroom layout, if so desired. The king-sized master suite incorporates a separate study or sitting area, his and hers full length mirrored sliding robes, white marble featured ensuite, unique light colour hardwood herringbone parquetry floors and expanses of floor to ceiling glass offering exceptional views to the surrounding district.
The additional two bedrooms are built-in and share a well-ventilated family bathroom with rail shower over bath combination. A full laundry room features extraction fan, tiles to the ceiling, a large linen storage cupboard and sizeable provisions for floor and wall mounted appliances.
Split system air-conditioners have been installed to all bedrooms and living areas, with ceiling fans and brilliant natural cooling, due to the elevation and breezes emanating from the river, adding up to comfortable temperatures across the seasons.
A rare find, there are three separate, secure garages attached to this sub-penthouse. Situated on the lower of the two car parking levels, these three side-by-side garages, each with remote controlled tilt doors, provide outstanding amounts of additional storage or workshop space and handy parking for extra family members. Generous visitor parking is provided also.
Secure, welcoming and immaculately presented on first impression, an intercom accessed central foyer and elevator enables guests to enter the building and quickly travel to the required floor. With only 37 apartments in total, a proactive body corporate ensures the property, and its common areas are kept in their very best condition. An indoor pool and spa, heated to a very comfortable 29 degrees, is provided for residents and their guests. With two recently refurbished cedar saunas, pool users’ facilities, ‘The Podium’ lawn terrace and absolute riverfront lawn, gardens and riverside BBQ gazebo, the facilities and the entire expansive allotment are immaculate in appearance.
Walk to it all from this premium inner-west location, with Toowong Village, the Guyatt Park ferry terminal and University of Queensland nearby, and a launching ramp for paddleboards and canoes only 250m away from North Shore. By joining the Riverloop cycleway, explore the City safely by bicycle, following the Bicentennial Bikeway that traces the river’s edge, crossing bridges to South Bank and West End.
Located close to popular parks, playgrounds and golf courses, well regarded private and state schools, high frequency public transport routes and convenient amenities, remain connected to the inner city while enjoying a lifestyle that is second to none.
