This iconic Coorparoo residence was designed by HIA award-winning architects Project Designs Pty Ltd. The inner-city property is a pleasure to live in for those who appreciate classic design with a focus on clean lines, fluid forms, space and light.

North-facing on an elevated corner parcel of land in the prestigious Coorparoo Heights pocket, the CBD shines brightly in view yet surrounding parkland suggests this property is a world away from the urban grind. The main Crucis Street entry is via a timber gatehouse, past a Pandanus palm and through a glass door. To complement the laidback Queensland lifestyle, lofted ceilings and a central reflection pond naturally cool and light the functional layout.

Inside, a custom designed staircase connects all three levels while considered planning ensures a separation of shared living areas from the large private bedrooms. A bridge on the upper level connects the master bedroom and ensuite to two large bedrooms serviced by a main bathroom. Triple garage doors hide the existence of entertaining spaces where a quite place contains a climate controlled wine cellar and cinema with a wet bar.

The nearby living room is a space with high ceilings, a gas fireplace, surround-sound system, electric operated floor to ceiling blinds and a view through the Eucalypt trees to the city. Everyday living occurs on this mid-level which opens out to a L-shaped inground saltwater pool that is framed by tropical gardens and sundecks, while there is a courtyard positioned at both the front and rear of the site. Other features include a range of Miele appliances, a vast calacatta marble island bench with breakfast bar, cabinetry, butler’s pantry and a built in coffee area in the contemporary kitchen.
