Originally built in 1896 as the third house on Teneriffe Hill, Koowa has been sympathetically restored to the highest standard.

Bespoke design features combine function with modern elegance to create an awe inspiring residence. The elevated position on Teneriffe Hill takes in 200 degree views, with an award-winning rear yard including a viewing deck, pool and heated spa. The kitchen is open-plan, allowing for an abundance of entertaining, looking out on the alfresco deck lapping the outskirts of the second storey. Summer afternoons spent on the Queenslander-style verandah are met with cool breezes and views of Brisbane city. The kitchen also boasts a Sub Zero fridge, Gaggenau appliances and scullery. Living spaces are framed by crisp white walls and deep mahogany timber floors.

A fully self-contained granny flat with granite and Miele fit out takes up residence on the property, with solar panels, ducted air conditioning, smart wiring and security also installed for easy living. Multiple living areas provide great for separate entertainment zones, with ample storage areas and Vacuum-aid installed throughout.

Over-sized bedrooms with built-ins and custom master ensuite dominate the upstairs realm, with classical elements combined with clever future-proofing design uplifting the home’s contemporary feel. The master ensuite blends a brick feature wall with crisp monochrome features and sweeping glass to evenly divide the space.

The outdoors open-air entertaining precinct incorporates a running water feature mixed in with a generous-sized pool.
