Beautifully unique, this north-facing home with a new boat pontoon invites you to enjoy the best in exclusive riverfront luxury. Showcasing a timeless design and an utterly breathtaking panorama, this expertly crafted property boasts an enviable position right on the river's edge in Norman Park. This impressive location, coupled with an intelligent floorplan and exceptional living spaces, makes 74 Wynnum Road a true Brisbane icon.
Designed by renowned architects Graham Davis and Helen Jepherson, the five-bedroom residence takes full advantage of its magnificent setting to offer a superb lifestyle. A cascading layout reflects the landscape, flowing gradually down to the phenomenal riverfront. Found throughout are sophisticated living and entertaining spaces, as well as premium finishes and attractive design details. It is this spectacular attention-to-detail that won the home the Robin Dods Award for Residential Architecture from the Queensland chapter of the Royal Australian Institute of Architects in 1997.
Presented with recently re-sanded Crows Ash timber floors and new plush carpets, the dual-level property displays an exquisite Japanese-inspired aesthetic that makes the residence feel incredibly tranquil.
At its front, a manicured Japanese-style garden accented by traditional water features carries you through to the home's welcoming entrance. Further enhancing the peaceful atmosphere, a secure three-car garage and a rare four-car carport filters any street noise from the rest of the property.
Stepping inside, you will find a light-filled hallway that leads to a spacious open-plan living and dining area. Punctuated by a dual-sided timber fireplace and commanding stunning river views, this formal entertainment space links to an excellent dine-in kitchen via floor-to-ceiling sliding glass. Gourmands and entertainers alike will appreciate touches like stone benchtops, quality appliances, a servery window, study nook, walk-in pantry and ample cupboard storage.
Promising to be the envy of guests, a generous covered timber deck seamlessly connects to this combined area. Framed by verdant gardens and timber privacy shutters, this sensational al fresco area looks across the Brisbane River to the dazzling city skyline, the Jacaranda-dotted New Farm Park and the Brisbane Powerhouse. Additional features like a timber bar and refreshing breezes create an exquisite setting for both large and intimate gatherings.
Also set at the home's rear is a luxe parents' retreat. Fitted with plantation shutters and a louvered breezeway, this lavish master bedroom also encompasses a built-in desk and robe. There is also a storage-filled walk-in robe and an elegant ensuite with dual vanities and sleek feature tiling.
Ensuring privacy, four additional bedrooms are positioned on an upper split-level at the property's front. Each are equipped with built-in robes, while three bedrooms also boast access to a covered zen garden. A well-appointed main bathroom services this level and displays a shower over the bath and a separate toilet.
Downstairs, an expansive rumpus or media room extends the entertainment options to the property's ground level. Complete with built-in benching and library-style shelving, this airy zone opens out the residence's fully-fenced grassed rear yard. Overlooking the Brisbane River, a cantilevered deck allows you to unwind and take in the mesmerising vista. Residents will also love the glass-framed saltwater swimming pool and the private boat pontoon that is just steps away.
Suitable for those that work from home, a sizeable office with in-built desks and vast amounts of storage also connects to the outdoor entertainment area. Finishing the freshly painted property is a temperature-controlled 2,000-bottle wine cellar, a sauna, a third bathroom, a dedicated laundry and a sound-proofed music room that could double as a podcast studio.
Other notable details include an abundance of storage, a security system, ducted air-conditioning, a sound system, new pylons and 37,000-litre rainwater tanks.
