Perched hillside in one of Brisbane North’s most exclusive suburbs, this Ascot residence oozes undisturbed luxury, and is privy to the most spectacular views. Coming up the drive, only the pitched roof of this hillside home is seen in fleeting glimpses through the lush evergreens. The home is not obtrusive like some new-builds, but rather complements the landscape while paying homage to the architecture that once dominated these Brisbane heights.
The paneled facade winks at the rich heritage of the area, resembling the facade of the quintessential Queenslanders before it. The steep, pitched gables mirror the exquisite mountainous ranges to the West, while acknowledging to the charming bygone Brisbane landscape. Although the facade nods to the past, the classic features are juxtaposed by the strong linear lines that rule the home, both inside and out. Bold lines and sharp angles dominate the design, with contemporary shapes making this home soar.
Inside, a wash of fresh grey paints lines the walls of this three-storey home. Natural light streams through the abundance of windows, glistening against the gorgeous hardwood floors. Beckoning for long lunches and lounging poolside, the terrace wraps around the middle level of the home, capitalising on the breathtaking views. These vistas are truly unrivaled, with the sparkling city and sprawling mountain ranges in full view, and the Brisbane River peeking through the forest beyond.
On the uppermost level of the home, three bedrooms reside, each with an ensuite and walk-in-robe. Across the hall, the sumptuous master retreat is situated in a private wing of the home. With a combined square-meterage that rivals only the living area, the open-plan space boasts a spacious dressing-room and ensuite. A luxurious free-standing bath is nestled under a window in the ensuite, perfectly framing the stunning views.
