On the border of blue-chip New Farm and Teneriffe sits this double-storey penthouse alternative in the heritage-listed Australian Estates Woolstore. Designed by renowned architect Scott Peabody and the team at Arqus Design, this is one of few rooftop residences.

Spread over two levels, the home features seven-metre-high ceilings and includes only the highest quality fittings and fixtures that celebrate the volume and scale of the woolstore. A total of four bedrooms, plus an office and multiple living areas, means this property resembles the size of a house with all the low maintenance benefits associated with an apartment.

The upstairs master bedroom offers a city retreat with panoramic views of the iconic Brisbane city skyline and a spacious walk-in wardrobe with custom-built cabinetry. On this level, residents will also find the luxurious kitchen where no expense has been spared, featuring stone benchtops, fully integrated fridge and freezer and full Gaggenau appliances including oven, microwave, plate warmer, steam oven and coffee machine. From the kitchen, residents enter the living and dining area that seamlessly flows onto the enclosed balcony, perfect for both intimate and larger gatherings with breathtaking city views, including the hugely popular Riverwalk.

Back downstairs are the remaining three bedrooms each with ample wardrobe space and elongated windows. Other features of this residence include a double car garage, 300 plus bottle wine cellar with two dual zone wine fridges, timber flooring, zoned air conditioning, large laundry and full custom-built television unit. The exclusive private complex on prestigious Macquarie Street is home to chic Kin & Co. Café and located within walking distance of New Farm Park, Merthyr Village Shopping Centre, James Street and Gasworks. With the highlights of city-living are on the doorstep, a unique contemporary design and quality construction, this home is priceless.
