This exceptional, award-winning property is the perfect example of how to create a stylish, unique and surprisingly spacious dwelling on a compact inner-city block.
Designed by architect Paul Owen, this incredibly clever home makes use of every available square metre, to deliver a space that is not only beautiful, but also highly functional.
Central to the home is the open plan and light filled kitchen, living and dining area. It has a soothing and timeless palette of Carrara marble, concrete, brass and brick. Huge timber sliding doors retract to connect this space with the secure entryway and the double car accommodation at the side, expanding and enhancing the available space for entertaining.
A sunken lounge opens to a paved terrace at the rear providing a classic Queensland open air space, ideal for a BBQ or firepit. The kitchen boasts quality appliances, an integrated fridge and dishwasher and a custom timber table that will stay with the property. A chute connects with the laundry at the side of the home.
Blackbutt timber stairs lead to the upper level, where you will find three spacious bedrooms and a very practical study nook with storage. The bedrooms all have built-in cupboards and they share the bathroom facilities, which have been separated into designated zones - there's a large shower, twin vanities and two powder rooms - a great layout for family usage.
The home has ducted a/c on the top level, however great ventilation coupled with the brick and concrete construction keeps the ground floor cool. Solar panels charge a Tesla power-wall that runs the house.
Petrie Terrace is one of Brisbane's oldest suburbs and it is rich with history, however it is also an exciting and ultra convenient inner city location. There is so much on your doorstep - the Barracks shopping centre, cafes, restaurants, bus stops, Suncorp Stadium and Latrobe Terrace all within walking distance - so too is the CBD.
This really is an extraordinary property with an impressive attention to detail. It offers chic and clever spaces that will stand the test of time.
