A WORLD CLASS RIVERFRONT ESTATE - 2725m2
A residence of infinite distinction, this commanding, tri-level 1177m2 home stands resplendent, its comprehensive array of lifestyle-focused features which include a pontoon, home theatre, lift, tennis court and pool, all seamlessly incorporated into a meticulous, private expanse of custom finishes and bespoke detailing. Positioned atop 2725m2 of riverfront land with an amazing 43 metre frontage and private, never-to-be built out views across to bushland and the St Lucia Golf Course, this grand estate is an absolute rarity among Brisbane’s elite.
It is saved from excess however by a judicious selection of fittings and finishes, which, having been skilfully chosen with expert flair, give the entire residence a commanding dignity throughout. As such, rare European marbles have been utilised in the kitchen, bathrooms and bar areas, Victorian bluestone in the entrance and cellar and select joinery throughout the home is solid timber – the library in Jarrah and the cabinetry in the cellar finished in New Guinea Rosewood. Even the home’s balustrade has been hand forged. Despite their bespoke nature, or perhaps because of them, all these finishes work very much in harmony and complement the high-concept floor plan, which together create an understated luxury backdrop that allows both the lifestyle-focused features and that expansive river panorama to fully shine.
Nowhere is this more apparent than in the central level of the private home where all living and dining is undertaken in one dynamic space. Here, the expansive kitchen (complete with butler’s pantry and integrated Miele appliances) makes a real style statement, as does the wall of bi-folding windows and doors that all retract to take full advantage of the grand view of the Brisbane River. An outdoor kitchen also takes pride of place, as do riverside terraces, the electrically heated infinity edged pool, gas heated spa, a children’s play area, full-sized, flood lit tennis court, a slipway (with commercial grade winch), and the versatile boat house that could also work as a music room or art studio. Back inside, a drawing room, games room and fully-specified library deliver yet further lifestyle features while a lift travels between the three floors, helping to incorporate additional entertainment options which are found on the ground level. These include a 5,000 bottle wine cellar (with French-inspired vaulted double barrel ceilings, ducted music, technology to cool and room for a tasting table), a home cinema and the fully self-contained guest suite which would also be ideal for a nanny or live-in help.
Six bedrooms, six bathrooms and two powder rooms are scattered throughout the three levels, though are located predominantly on the upper floor. There, a vestibule grounded by four solid European marble columns brings additional privacy to the elegant master suite which also boasts a solid timber walk-in wardrobe, an ensuite (with spa and steam shower) and river views from the large balcony. As a further testament to the property’s dedication to detail, all the wet areas within the home have underfloor heating.
An extensive range of technology is also featured throughout the full concrete build, with a commercial passenger lift as well as a complete commercial electronics system controlling all lights, blinds and the state-of-the-art audio visual system. In addition, an electrically controlled irrigation system with 45,000 litres of water storage helps to maintain the beautiful gardens, while the property also lists comprehensive CCTV security, air-conditioning, garaging for five vehicles and a workshop.
With just 5km to the CBD and only minutes to shops, schools and local eateries, it is superlatively located – close enough to be part of the action but sufficiently removed to ensure all the peace and privacy necessary to fully enjoy this unique residence that has been custom built to the highest order.
This home is without peer in Brisbane, only an inspection will do it justice.
