A celebration of heritage elegance and modern design, this utterly resplendent home perfectly balances form with function. Perched on an elevated 810sqm allotment that looks out to mesmerising panoramic city views, this fully renovated 1900s Queenslander has been intelligently refreshed to offer the very best in Norman Park living.
Set amongst attractive properties in a sought-after suburb, the four-bedroom residence has been expertly updated by renowned Brisbane interior designer Claire Stevens Interior Design. At its rear, a modern extension seamlessly transitions from the original home and provides a sophisticated setting for relaxing and entertaining. Featuring throughout are exquisite traditional touches like stained hardwood flooring, decorative breezeways, VJ walls, lofty ceilings and picture and chair rails.
Giving the property phenomenal street appeal is a magnolia-lined and gated front garden, as well as a grand front verandah and a magnificent facade. A leadlight window-adorned front door opens out to a central hallway that allows natural light and refreshing breezes to flow throughout the abode.
Stepping into the central living area, you will be left speechless by the extraordinary views revealed by a 'lift and slide' 16-millimetre stacked glass sliding door. Capturing a vista that spans across the entire city skyline, this immaculate combined area also overlooks the leafy suburb and nearby Wilson Park, which transforms into a purple-hued oasis during Jacaranda season.
Complementing this scenic outlook, a beautifully crafted open-plan living and dining area feels wonderfully airy. Originally from Australia's cultural capital of Melbourne, the current owners are passionate about interior design and have ensured this main living area is both welcoming and impressive.
Entertainers will also love the generous adjoining deck, which is framed by privacy shutters and serves as an unrivalled vantage point for watching the New Year's Eve and Riverfire fireworks.
Steps away, a custom gourmet kitchen will be the envy of family and friends. Presented with marble benchtops and a large combined island counter and breakfast bar, this unparalleled culinary space also displays banks of bespoke matte walnut joinery and a glass splashback. A suite of top-of-the-line integrated appliances includes a Miele fridge and a knock-to-open dishwasher, plus a VZug cooktop and combination and steam ovens.
Also featuring a picturesque outlook, a spacious master bedroom showcases a full wall of wardrobe storage. There is also a luxurious ensuite encompassing Quarts Classic Italian stone tiling, dual vanities and a separate shower and freestanding bath commanding city views.
Two additional oversized bedrooms are positioned at the home's front, ensuring privacy. One is fitted with a large built-in robe, while the other features a walk-in robe. An opulent main bathroom directly linked to the second bedroom boasts dual access and mirrored cabinetry.
Finishing the upper level, a dedicated office is equipped with a built-in desk. You will also find a functional mudroom with an abundance of storage and access to a secure dual carport.
Accessible via an internal timber staircase, the property's ground level includes a sizeable entertainers' lounge or rumpus room. Joined by a third bathroom and a fourth bedroom with a built-in robe, this second living area provides excellent accommodation for guests, teenagers or young adults.
Full-height stacked glass sliding doors open out to another covered deck and a spectacular 12-metre swimming pool. Those with children and pets will also appreciate the expansive fully-fenced terraced grassed rear yard that continues from here. Established gardens and more incredible views also make this outdoor entertainment area a highlight for the residence.
A practical laundry and a secure dual garage complete the ground level. Promising to catch the eye of gourmands, a fantastic wine storage area can be easily reimagined to be an enclosed wine cellar.
Undeniably refined, the home benefits from ducted Daikin air-conditioning, solar panels, ceiling fans and vast amounts of storage. Other impeccable details include plantation shutters and Melbourne-sourced feature pendant lights.
