An extraordinary estate, like a great novel or a priceless painting, can embrace the spirit and imagination of an entire city. Bridgeman Downs has emerged as Brisbane's answer to the prestigious US East Coast enclave of the Hamptons, with a landscape dominated by its collection of local multi-million dollar mansions. And now, its crown jewel, a palatial award winning estate on 2.5 acres of elevated, landscaped gardens with an architecturally-significant design by Richard Foley is exclusively available to Brisbane's discerning buyers.
Upon entry through the private gates, the detail and extravagance of this home is immediately evident. Sprawling landscaped grounds reach out in all directions, punctuated by walkways leading to and from pergolas, statues, a sandstone well, wrought iron swing and many bench seats. At the heart of these immaculate grounds is a commanding residence, combining grand Queensland Colonial and Hamptons influences to create a welcoming facade that aptly demonstrates the quality and style that features throughout this amazing estate.
Two expansive levels (nearly 800m2) offer designated living and entertaining areas with a central gourmet kitchen. Multiple formal and casual spaces integrate with equally generous outdoor verandahs for an elegant yet practical home that welcomes family living and entertaining across all scales. Outstanding craftsmanship is evident at every turn with sophisticated interior details blending Blackbutt timber, Comerford sandstone, Western Australia Jarrah, ornate skirtings and architraves, Colonial-inspired cornices, soaring ceilings and a warm, inviting palette.
There is no shortage of additional features both inside and out to ensure comfort and convenience for the entire family. This includes four oversized bedrooms, a theatre room with built-in plasma, large home office, library and games room with 100+ year old recycled timber trusses. Outside, a resort-style pool and tennis court invite unbridled play and relaxation amongst the established gardens. There is even an adjacent tennis and pool house/separate guest house, self-contained and offering a welcoming retreat after a cooling dip or challenging match. The home also offers an audio system, security system, three phase power, ducted air conditioning throughout, vacuumaid, Dynalite Home Management System, irrigation and three bay shed.
Positioned with a High North East aspect in Bridgeman Downs, one of the most desirable addresses north of Brisbane, this amazing home offers total seclusion while maintaining the convenience of being within close proximity to a number of amenities. This includes a number of local shops, restaurants and entertainment amenities as well as public transport facilities including bus stop at the end of the street and two train stations located just three just minutes away. St Paul's Anglican School (prep to Y12) is just 3.5km away. Alternatively, Brisbane CBD is just a 24 minute drive, meaning that nothing is ever out of reach.
