Set amid lush gardens on a breeze-swept, tree-lined hilltop with a view out to Moreton Bay, this premium-quality, solid build home is distinctively impressive. The North-East-facing residence sits on a private and secure parcel of land, and was designed by Cottee Parker Architects with impeccable attention to space, amplifying natural light in every room, and taking full advantage of the bay breezes.
In the formal entry foyer, a stunning, soaring light-filled (7 metre-high) space showcases a grand central staircase, custom-built in wrought iron and polished timber. This foyer extends past a row of large windows looking out on the high-walled rear courtyard. Invitingly decked with Mediterranean and subtropical trees, vines and flowers, it is set with a large, elegant in-ground pool - the essence of Queensland alfresco lifestyle.
On the upper level, open-plan multiple living and dining spaces spill out to a shuttered balcony facing the bay. The gourmet kitchen features bespoke cabinetry, with granite bench tops and high-quality European appliances. At the rear of the house, the enormous master bedroom opens onto a balcony over the garden, offering enchanting city views.
An eclectic pairing of contemporary space and form with French Provincial style, extra-high ceilings, plantation shutters, ducted air-conditioning and ceiling fans feature throughout. Suspended concrete slabs support tung-oiled hardwood floorboards, while bathrooms are tiled and panelled with glass, marble and travertine.
Surrounded by the cream of Clayfield residences, St Rita's College is just a minute's stroll away, with several other esteemed private schools also close by. Easy access to the CBD, Brisbane Airport, and the dining precincts of Racecourse Rd and Hamilton Portside. This property is a unique gem and is essential viewing.
