A truly unique home in every sense of the word, this extraordinary property is one of a kind. Looking out to phenomenal views of the sparkling Brisbane River, leafy New Farm Park and the iconic city skyline beyond, this magnificent residence offers an unmatched lifestyle and an ultra-convenient address.
Fully restored in 2002 by renowned architect Bruce Medek, the home fuses modern design with an exquisite Queenslander built in 1895. Expertly melding the two in a fully customised renovation, the property will impress with its spectacular northern aspect, beautiful design details and remarkable entertainment options. Highlights include a 1,050-bottle wine cellar and a heated in-ground swimming pool commanding city views.
Despite being positioned on a central city-bound road, the residence feels wonderfully tranquil and exclusive. Set away from Wynnum Road and presented with manicured gardens crafted by Two Leos Landscaping and Design, the home balances a peaceful atmosphere with proximity to Brisbane's CBD.
Marrying heritage-style elegance with a modern aesthetic, the property showcases exceptional 3.5-metre-high ceilings, Crows Ash timber floors, VJ walls and eye-catching ceiling roses. Banks of glass and louvered windows also fill the residence with natural light and refreshing river breezes that circulate throughout the abode.
A fantastic vantage point for taking in the picturesque vista, the home's upper level is where you will find an incredibly spacious open-plan living and dining area. Punctuated by lofty gabled ceilings, this airy central area seamlessly connects to a generous covered deck overlooking the majestic Brisbane River.
Steps away, a superb entertainers' kitchen boasts a full suite of Miele appliances, an island bench, stone benchtops and a servery window. Prepare a delicious meal for family and friends, gather loved ones for an unforgettable dinner party or unwind with a glass of wine by the combined pizza oven and wooden fireplace. Everything entertainers and avid cooks could desire is thought of in this enviable culinary space.
Continuing down the grand central hallway, you will also discover a marvellous formal living and dining area displaying an original fireplace. Continuing the entertainment options downstairs, a sizeable rumpus room or office leads to a second lounge room and a sensational al fresco area and a sparkling in-ground swimming pool that can be enjoyed year-round.
A luxurious private retreat on the property's upper level, the master bedroom encompasses a substantial walk-in robe and a secure verandah. There is also a linked ensuite featuring a large vanity and a separate bath and shower that looks through the verandah to the dazzling city skyline.
Two additional bedrooms are set away from here; one is ensuited and connects to the residence's front verandah, while the other is fitted with a built-in robe. Another three bedrooms also benefitting from built-in robes are situated downstairs, along with a well-appointed main bathroom and a laundry with a built-in workstation and an attached drying court.
Complete with a rare seven-car carport and an upper-level powder room, the home also includes an abundance of storage, a security system, solar power, rainwater tanks, roller blinds and air-conditioning.
Only five kilometres from Brisbane's CBD and a leisurely stroll from some of Brisbane's most prestigious schools, this unrivalled property is also close to a plethora of shops and dining options. Fashionable Oxford Street, the Mowbray Park Ferry Terminal and the Norman Park train station are also nearby, while the popular Kangaroo Point, South Brisbane and Howard Smith Wharves precincts are just minutes away.
Falling within the Norman Park State School and Coorparoo Secondary College catchment areas, this unparalleled residence is also a stone's throw from Anglican Church Grammar School, Lourdes Hill College, Saints Peter and Paul's School and Saint Joseph's Catholic Primary School.
