Sophisticated, refined and utterly steeped in local history, Residence Six at Yungaba House has been thoughtfully restored to present elegant modern living. Nestled in one of Brisbane's most iconic heritage buildings, this four bedroom residence honours the traditional and exhibits the contemporary.
Spread over four levels and framed by eastward river views, a charming interior contrasts industrial elements with seamless modernism. Timber flooring, sash windows and original woodwork are balanced with contemporary appointments of stone, marble and rendered brick. Upon entry of this grand residence via the expansive hallway at ground level, the front door leads to a formal foyer opening to the tropical courtyard outside and home to the forth bedroom or home office.
Ascending via the original timber staircase, the warm heart of the home reveals itself on the main level of the residence. Soaring ceilings and extensive glazing work in tandem to promote an undeniable sense of space and vitality. Designed in an open, contemporary fashion, the living and dining areas surround the gourmet galley kitchen. The kitchen becomes the main focal point complete with ample storage, an island bench and an entire suite of high quality Miele appliances befitting of this significant residence. Flowing to the vast private outdoor terrace offering a tranquil aspect over the protected heritage gardens and grounds of Yungaba, the space is completed by the impressive backdrop of the Brisbane River in the distance.
The first level also hosts three ensuited bedrooms, each privately located in their own corner of the home. All three bedrooms feature an abundance of storage and natural light, built in robes, plush carpet and high ceilings. Both the Master Suite and second bedroom capture views of the gardens and Brisbane River also boasting their own respective fireplaces.
From the first floor landing, an exquisite spiral staircase rises towards the turret level, where buyers are presented with an additional living space and stunning 360* views through heritage awning windows.
The home also features a classic brick under croft spanning 113m2 including the existing laundry and storage space. The enormity of this rare space provides limitless options from a wine cellar and cigar room to home gym, additional living spaces or even an art gallery. A complete lock up side-by- side garage with additional storage is accessed via the secure winding driveway framed by manicured gardens and the Story Bridge.
This historic, prestigious riverside development comes complete with a residents' gym, infinity lap pool and over 3,000m2 of private manicured gardens for occupants to enjoy.
Perfectly located in the centre of the Kangaroo Point peninsula, buyers have instant access to all the delights of this inner city paradise, including restaurants, cafes, parks and walking paths that trace the banks of the Brisbane River along with 3 ferry and city cat options. Families will appreciate their close proximity to an array of prestigious schools, including All Hallows School, Anglican Church Grammar School and Lourdes Hill College.
