THE TERRACE C1933 - A GRAND LANDMARK HOME 2499M2
WATCH THE VIDEO FOR A FURTHER INSIGHT TO THE PROPERTY
An architectural masterpiece where old meets new, this one-of-a-kind property steeped in history celebrates the meeting of two of the city’s most celebrated architects – the original heritage-listed 1930’s English-style red brick residence by Charles Griffin and the breathtaking modern restoration and extension of formed concrete, glass and brick by Brisbane architectural luminary Shaun Lockyer.
Built in 1933, “The Terrace” has been completely restored and doubled in size in what is without doubt one of Brisbane’s best character home restorations on a completely flat and fully useable 2499m2 block with a massive 18m inground pool and championship tennis court with floodlights.
Arrive at this storybook property where hedges line the long white fence and make your way through the modern entry gate past the grand circular front lawn with its magnificent jacaranda tree. Follow the pathway beneath the long pergolas to the front entrance of this grand old dame with her incredible modern extension juxtaposed to the north.
Once inside, elegant and quality features abound at this truly magnificent home where there is so much to admire. Its modern restoration includes traditional 220mm-wide European oak timber floorboards, inbuilt custom cabinetry in American oak, custom brick kickboards and polished concrete floors.
The main living room opens onto the modern front terrace with its impressive architectural concrete forms and bench seating running from the outdoor area inside the home. Along with the large glass sliding doors, this creates a seamless connection between indoor/outdoor living. The modern northern wing extension is appropriately sited, proportioned and detailed to be distinguished as a 21st century addition to the original house without eroding the overt architectural qualities that distinguish the origins of the 1930’s residence.
Changing ceiling heights create volumetric interest throughout the home spread over three levels while designer lighting highlights its endless features. Double glazed skylights add a sense of poetry allowing light to play off the walls and floors at different times of the day. Charming heritage features that have been retained and celebrated include the decorative ceilings, leadlight windows and two original brick fireplaces including one which is operational in the formal living room and the other incorporated into the modern bathroom. There is also a study or home office with inbuilt desks and a wonderful library to escape to.
Architect Shaun Lockyer on 47 Hazelmere Pde, Sherwood:
Hazelmere Parade represents one of our finest projects to date, involving a complete restoration and addition to a period home. The result, a bold contemporary addition to a significant heritage home on an enviable block of land offering unparalleled lifestyle opportunity. The house fuses robust, finely crafted character with timeless contemporary architecture without compromise and in such a way as to seamlessly integrate both while celebrating each appropriately. The house is complimented by 2499m2 of manicured gardens, lawn, swimming pool and tennis court (including a large, private outdoor living pavilion), all of which are finished and detailed to the same quality as the home.
Superbly built by Cullum Hughes, this house offers a rare mix of old and new, all completed to 2018 standards using the highest level of finish and selection. A range of beautifully executed details in the home include significant new skylights that punctuate the rooms with light, large timber sliding doors connecting the house to garden and materials that reference the heritage fabric of the home. Frameless glass clerestory windows afford curated views of the heritage listed roof from the new living spaces and main bedroom as part of the narrative of this very special piece of architecture. This is a very special home and one that we have poured our hearts and souls into (along with the clients and builders as well). It represents equal to the best work we have ever done as a practice and we are both proud and excited to present this to the market – Shaun Lockyer
