With an original design that fully embraces its enviable position on the tightly-held Brisbane riverfront, this residence offers a lavish and relaxed lifestyle in one of the most prestigious locations in Brisbane.

An exhibition of innovative and contemporary architecture, the home was designed by architect Joe Reggi and went on to win the Building Design of the Year Award for 2015. And with its ability to blend elegant style with comfortable practicality across every inch of the allotment, it is easy to see why.

The property features a fifteen-metre river frontage with views that capture both reaches of the river, New Farm Park and the city skyline. It consists of three intelligently laid-out floors that contain spacious, light-filled interiors accentuated by walls of glass and a central void featuring Moooi Random pendant lights. Premium quality fixtures and finishes are featured throughout the building, as well as crisp white cabinetry and Hermes wallpaper.

The top floor contains a master bedroom that features north-west river views, a walk-in wardrobe, and a private ensuite. The remaining three bedrooms are well-sized and boast their own ensuites. The gourmet kitchen is appointed with a suite of Gaggenau appliances, including a gas cooktop that doubles as a teppanyaki plate. There is also an expansive patio area for incomparable entertaining, and a sparkling riverside lap pool lined with Italian tiles.

This lavish water-front home also features a private guest suite, which contains its own private kitchen, entertaining area and direct access to the swimming pool. It also has a secure garage with space for two vehicles, a climate-controlled wine cellar with 1100 bottle capacity, and the home is insulated with polastic insulation, creating an airtight home with a high star energy rating.
