CONTEMPORARY RIVERFRONT MASTERPIECE
A nod to past architectural greats has resulted in a home of rare modernity situated on St Lucia’s highly prized, absolute riverfront, where a heated pool, pontoon and unique home are enhanced by superlative, north-facing river views. At the end of a quiet no-through road this property has Guyatt Park on its eastern boundary which wraps around to the south giving you a 270 degree vista of five acres of mature trees and rolling green lawns.
Designed by one of Australia’s leading architectural firms, the three level home marries these stunning views with a high concept floor plan incorporating bespoke finishes which set this residence apart. Pellegrino sandstone, slate, burnished copper and touches of steel combine for visual interest and presents an organic vibe to the facade. Inside further use of sandstone, beautiful timber floors and an expansive application of timber veneers combine with designer lighting to ensure maximum visual appeal.
Custom-designed stacking windows, also play an important role, framing and shaping the surrounding views, while also ushering in plentiful light and natural breezes. Fitted with fully automated Vental blinds allows control of views, light and privacy at the touch of a button. These high impact architectural features are showcased in the generous open plan living area, which flows out to a glass covered terrace, lawn and pool before leading down to the water’s edge where a pontoon allows easy access to the river beyond.
In keeping with modern design the stylish and functional kitchen enjoys European appliances, a 5.2 m stone-topped bench designed for seating ten is perfect for entertaining whilst maintaining your connection to the river and park. Such is the triumph of the design this home boasts a butler’s pantry, powder room, breakfast bar and plentiful storage all seamlessly integrated whilst remaining sleek and minimalist.
Intuitive interior spaces have also drawn maximum usability from the floor plan delivering separate areas for a variety of pursuits including a media room, home office, children’s/teenager’s retreat, study and a library looking through the tree canopy at the river and park. Upstairs four children’s rooms have built-in veneered wardrobes and study nooks and make use of a large family bathroom complete with deep soaker bath. The separately zoned master suite is all about detail, from the bespoke cabinetry in the walk-in wardrobe, ensuite and the bedroom itself, to the stone-clad feature walls and stacking windows which retract giving the feeling of being suspended above the river.
A design of this calibre delivers smart technology, Cbus for integrated lighting, StarServe for media and computer and an on demand reticulated hot water system. There is a turntable in the garage for easy drive in drive out access and the massive garage allows parking for four vehicles.
Superbly located with shops, eateries and the University of Queensland all within easy walking distance and has a ferry stop in Guyatt Park so the CBD and Southbank are only moments away.
