This grand award-winning family home is located in the most exclusive riverfront pocket of leafy Chelmer. Winning the Master Builders House of the Year 2009, the house has a legacy steeped in tradition. Harry Poulos Architects focused on the authentic detailing and true elements of Classic American architecture to create a warm and nurturing residence. This is evident from the usage of travertine flooring and bench tops in all bathrooms, to the bespoke cabinetry by award-winning RW Joiners.

The sheer beauty of this home lies inside the intricate details. The seven bedroom, seven bathroom house contains only the finest materials in the hands of skilled craftsmen to create a design that lends itself to both intimate and vast shared spaces. Two guest houses are integral to the superior family-friendly functionality of this sprawling property. Both guest houses are self-contained with full kitchens and travertine bathrooms.

The seamless flow of entertainment, living and recreational spaces capture the riverfront vista and the Brisbane River. This is truly a unique oasis, which features a championship-size floodlit tennis court, mosaic-tiled heated swimming pool, and a pontoon with power and water. With a wood-burning fireplace, billiard room with bar, walk-in climate-controlled 1200 bottle wine cellar, and a handcrafted welsh slate roof, this home is the complete package for a family who loves to live in luxury.
