This remarkable, just completed, architect designed 5-bedroom property sets a new standard for luxurious, contemporary inner city living.
Master craftsman built by InForm Building Group and designed by Nick Muslin from NMDS Architecture, this multi-level dwelling enjoys a sweeping outlook from its prime location on Balmoral hill and utilises the finest materials to create a show stopping residence, with spaces for both relaxed family living and large scale entertaining.
A secure gatehouse, with video intercom welcomes you into the property, where you will find a dramatic entry. A breath-taking three-storey high void is punctuated by designer Mooi pendant lights and is anchored by a double level staircase. There is elegant marble flooring and on one side, an impressive wall of marble, while to the other side, full height glazing lets in light and views of the garden. This soaring entry is not just a striking welcome - it's also a clever design feature, ensuring each level of the home is connected.
On the entry level you will find a generous media room, with state of the art technology and a projector screen, while there is also a glass walled wine cellar and powder room. A lift services each level and there is internal access to the secure four car garage, making it easy to unload groceries or pack the car.
Up one flight of stairs you will find a large and welcoming family room, with quality oak floors and well-positioned, custom-made cabinetry. Sliding doors retract to connect this room with the outdoor deck and built-in BBQ area, fully tiled swimming pool and landscaped yard and gardens. This is an outstanding space for gathering with family and friends all year round and represents indoor/outdoor living at its best.
There are four beautiful bedrooms on this level, all with quality carpet and built-in storage. One of the bedrooms has an ensuite, while the other rooms share the stylish main bathroom. All of the bathrooms and powder rooms throughout the property utilise the finest in fixtures and finishes, including slate floors, Elba marble benchtops and stunning mosaic tiles from Artedomus.
The laundry is also on this level and has ample storage, a marble splashback and direct access to an external drying area.
The upper level of the home is a sophisticated space, dominated by the suitably impressive family sized kitchen. An oversized Elba marble island bench is a magnificent feature, offering ample room for food preparation or casual meals. There is a full suite of Miele appliances, including double ovens, a coffee machine, induction cooktop and integrated fridges. The substantial butler's pantry also has marble bench tops, a second dishwasher and storage galore. Adjoining the kitchen is a sumptuous lounge with sliding doors opening to the deep front deck, which enjoys sweeping views from the 'Gabba to the CBD. A fireplace separates the lounge from the refined dining area, making this a superb space for elegant entertaining.
There is a very convenient study area on this level with well-considered cabinetry and a powder room for guests.
The Master suite is generously proportioned and utilises a modern palette to create a tranquil retreat. A decadent ensuite has a freestanding bath, separate shower and there is ample storage in the walk-through wardrobe.
Incredibly this home continues, with a show-stopping roof top terrace offering jaw-dropping views over Brisbane. A retractable awning provides shelter, while a kitchenette makes this an ideal and memorable space for entertaining, while overlooking the city.
