Nestled in the ever bustling entertainment precinct of New Farm, this home is only a stone’s throw from the very best Brisbane has to offer. With New Farm Park and the Brisbane Powerhouse just a block away, and the Brisbane River almost at its doorstep, this entertainer’s dream capitalises on its fantastic location.
The angular contemporary facade entices, its dark stone juxtaposed by the bright cherry timber paneling. A curtain of decorative steel shields the home from the outside world. The home’s impeccable attention leaves no space untouched, with even the humble rendered fence becoming an object of beauty. The home borrows from Japanese contemporary design, with its rich timber, dark stone, and luminous white colour palette, as well as the angular, boxy design that features throughout the home.
Designed with ease of living in mind, the home features an elevator that travels from the basement garage to the top floor. Bright white walls feature throughout the home, a striking contrast the the dark stone tiles and stunning timber accents. A suspended timber feature graces the ceiling parallel to the polished timber hallway running the length of the ground floor. The open-plan living area is flooded with natural light, beckoning for long, languorous lunches, that become dinner by the pool in the covered patio. More window than wall, the living space is lined with timber bi-fold doors, making the indoor to outdoor entertaining seamless.
An ultimate entertainer’s pad, the home features a wine cellar and tasting room, with a private guest bed and ensuite adjacent for those unexpected overnight stays, ever the indicator of a night well spent. Upstairs, the spacious master bedroom triumphs, with an ensuite and private balcony. More closely resembling a restorative day-spa, the ensuite features a double vanity, and penny-sized amber tiles that pop against the stone. The frosted window with timber trim only adds to the room’s luxurious feel.
Despite its inner-city location, this home remains tranquil. The lush garden, as well as the large, peaceful pond provide respite for the busy, mile-a-minute minds. Alongside the private study, home theatre, and workshop space, this home oozes elegance and sophisticated charm.
