Taking pride of place on the hilltop corner of exclusive Henzell Terrace, this landmark family residence combines lavish proportions, sophisticated luxury and a breathtaking city skyline backdrop.
Architecturally designed, constructed to meticulous standards and showcasing magnificent craftsmanship throughout, it is fair to say that homes of this calibre seldom come to market.
Tucked privately behind lush manicured hedging, the 930m2 north-east facing property spans three levels; encompassing two beautiful entertaining terraces and huge rear lawns beside the glass-framed saltwater swimming pool.
Inside, the home has been appointed to perfection. Drawing on timeless French Provincial style, the interior features washed parquetry and Limestone flooring, Carrara marble finishes, as well as the elegance of French doors, Bay windows and open fireplaces.
And, not only does its beauty shine from within, but most of the property basks in sublime 180-degree views stretching from Brisbane's South, across the city, Mount Coo-tha, Story Bridge and to the North.
Rows of windows and door infuse the home with natural light and glorious hilltop cross-breezes. An effortless flow across the main living level sees a grand entry foyer unfold into the formal lounge and banquet-sized dining spaces. The adjoining open-plan family area features a gourmet kitchen with oversized Carrara marble island breakfast bar, Corian benchtops, butler's pantry and European appliances. Each zone opens directly to a sun-drenched terrace, perfect both casual and large-scale entertaining.
The plush carpeted upper level features an intimate sitting area and three bright, spacious bedrooms. The lavish master retreat boasts a glamorous ensuite, showstopping walk-in dressing room, marble fireplace and French doors opening to two Juliet balconies which capture panoramic city views. Meanwhile, the ground floor hosts a private guest or teenager's bedroom with ensuite, also ideal as a large professional home office.
In addition, an outstanding opportunity exists to substantially increase the current living space by transforming the expansive build-in-ready lower level. Picture further bedrooms, a home theatre, gymnasium, wine cellar, or summer kitchen opening through bi-fold doors to the pool area! The level is already plumbed, above legal height and featuring all the necessary concrete foundations.
