Luxurious architectural abode with full city and river panoramas
A rare find in one of Brisbane's most prestigious suburbs, this truly phenomenal sanctuary offers the very best in modern living. Meticulously crafted by the award-winning Shaun Lockyer Architects and exhibiting their renowned signature style, this incomparable newly completed property looks out to some of the city's most stunning never-to-be-built-out city and river views. Complete with sophisticated living spaces, premium finishes and an exclusively large frontage, 31 Waldo Street is a study in architectural perfection.
Balancing striking design with exceptional liveability, the newly renovated five-bedroom residence showcases single-level-living options and spectacular attention-to-detail throughout. The elevated home has been recently transformed by SLa and Robson Constructions into a thoroughly modern home, with occasional cleverly integrated glimpses of the original architecture. Presented with sleek lines, spotted gum and Queensland brushbox timber floors, walls of glass, louvered windows and a timeless monochromatic colour palette, the reimagined property with native landscaping specifically selected to complement the architecture creates an exquisite family-friendly abode that enjoys utterly breathtaking views.
Making a sensational first impression, the residence welcomes you with an immaculate entryway and a beautiful vista. Adorned with tongue-in-groove European oak timber, this light-filled area continues up via an elegant stairway to the home's central living area.
Experiencing the warm Western sun and upgraded with the highest performing glass and blinds, as well as cleverly designed louvred windows to capture breezes, the spacious living and dining area feels completely open. Here, stacked floor-to-ceiling glass doors reveal mesmerising views across the sparkling Brisbane River through to the city skyline, leafy New Farm Park, The Brisbane Powerhouse and Teneriffe.
Designed to imitate the feeling of sitting on the water's edge, an airy lounge area invites you to relax and host guests in sheer luxury. Steps away, a covered alfresco area extends the entertainment options outside and provides an enviable vantage point for watching the New Year's Eve fireworks and boats pass by on the river.
Entertainers and gourmands alike will also appreciate the magnificent adjoining kitchen. Featuring everything you need to host an unforgettable gathering, this remarkable culinary space encompasses a large breakfast bar with scratch-resistant waterfall 30-millimetre Quartzite stone benchtops. There is also an outstanding suite of VZug and Liebherr appliances, including a gas and induction cooktop, a steam oven and a pyrolytic oven with pizza function. A butler's pantry, Billi tap, wine fridge, space for a robot cleaner and vast amounts of cupboard storage finish this impeccable area.
Continuing from this refined living area, there is a generous family or media room which also takes in the stunning view. Fitted with built-in cabinetry and a functional study area, this brilliant space looks across the timber staircase to the majestic river and city beyond.
Also situated at the property's rear are three sizeable bedrooms boasting built-in robes, as well as a well-appointed main bathroom featuring a separate bath, shower and toilet. Two bedrooms capture river views, while the third also overlooks an attractive garden.
Close to the residence's other bedrooms while still feeling wonderfully private, a lavish master bedroom is the ultimate parents' retreat. With expansive L-shaped windows that command extraordinary river and city views, this opulent space features a luxury custom king-size bed that has been imported from London. Promising to impress, a walk-through robe with ample Blum soft-close cabinetry flows to a stylish ensuite.
Downstairs, a fifth bedroom displaying a built-in robe can also serve as a home office, music room, guestroom or accommodation for older generations.
Serviced by a dedicated laundry on the upper level with a linked drying court and a landscaped garden, the property also offers an abundance of storage. A secure three-car garage with easy street access effortlessly immerses itself into the landscape thanks to a grass-topped roof that is dotted with native Australian plants.
Benefitting from intelligent engineering solutions, the residence is equipped with Crimsafe technology on its louvred windows, automated external blinds, ducted and split-system air-conditioning and an automated entrance security system. Luxury-lovers will also value touches like high-end Cuchi curtains and Italian hand-blown glass pendants by Cangini, Tucci and David Trubridge.
Conveniently located close to Wynnum Road and its many shops and dining options, this resplendent home is just six kilometres from Brisbane's CBD. The Norman Park Ferry Terminal is also just minutes away, along with Bulimba's fashionable Oxford Street and a multitude of popular parklands. There is also a bus stop at the top of the hill, which will take you to Woolloongabba, South Brisbane, the city and Fortitude Valley with ease.
