This impressive Frank Lloyd Wright inspired residence at Westlake was designed by multi-award winning architect Donald Spencer and proudly occupies an expansive block of riverfront land with an idyllic northerly aspect.
The property blends into its outdoor environs boasting solid timber features, curved walls and gleaming marble floors. Natural light is drawn in by the elegant floor-to-ceiling glass. The subtle use of lead lighting further accentuates a sense of warmth and spaciousness throughout the home.
An entertainer’s delight, the residence possesses a myriad of indoor and outdoor entertainment facilities that take full advantage of the panoramic views extending across the Brisbane River. A vast media room is found on the lower level, boasting a built in bar and direct access to the pool. The expansive in-ground pool overlooks the tree-fringed river side, making it a worthy recipient of the Gold Medal for Best Pools in Australia. An additional embellishment to the pool is the sauna. Lush green lawns give way to a large flood-lit tennis court. Established native gardens and a pond add tropical flourishes to the residence.
The enviable position of the home maximises privacy and tranquility. Four fine bedrooms exude luxury and overlook sweeping river vistas. The master bedroom is complemented by a walk in robe and a grand ensuite equipped with a lavish spa bath. A spacious open-plan gourmet kitchen has ample storage and smooth marble top benches. Working from home is easy with the addition of a private home office that has separate access. Comfort is paramount to the design and two gas fires plus air conditioning are on offer throughout the living spaces.
This home is a tranquil riverside hideaway that is within close proximity to shopping centres, public transport and the Brisbane Central Business District.
