An original homestead of the late 19th Century, The Riverbank as it is now referred, has been exceptionally transformed into one of Brisbane’s most distinguished and elegant heritage homes. It offers spacious living on a generous land parcel in one of the most exclusive streets of Brisbane’s premier riverside suburb.
Renovated with meticulous craftsmanship to enhance its heritage qualities and distinguishing character features, The Riverbank superbly entwines the Victorian era with modern comforts to produce a home of unparalleled beauty. This sought-after location has a rare combination of city views and close proximity to the river.
Beyond the beautiful landscaping and winding front sandstone path, luxury welcomes each guest into the home. With stunning timber floorboards and a sparkling chandelier framing the grand sweeping stair case, the timeless wonder of this residence is evident. Invoking the finery of yesteryear, eyes wander upward to take in the ornate architraves and intricate ceiling above, with genteel ceiling rose.
Perfectly designed to welcome busy modern lifestyles into this period home, the space is spread abundantly across two levels, each maintaining picture perfect heritage features and high-end detailing at every turn. On both levels discover a colossal open plan lounge and dining space, each bordered by beautiful french timber doors to invite natural light and cooling breezes with upstairs including exquisite chandeliers.
The outdoors space offers two enviable alfresco dining areas, meaning you’ll be spoiled for choice. The upper level presents a verandah with majestic views over Brisbane city as well as the lush green backyard below. Downstairs is adorned with sandstone flooring, timber ceilings and direct access to the manicured backyard. The huge in-ground pool takes centre stage in the immaculate backyard, creating the perfect reason for summer garden parties and backyard picnics.
The custom Wyer and Craw kitchen is a space of grace and finesse whilst simultaneously providing functionality. The lower level provides the potential for dual living with a butler’s kitchen equipped with all the features. Five gorgeous bedrooms are dotted throughout both levels to ensure ultimate comfort. The master bedroom is grand and luxurious with a private ensuite befitting of a six star resort.
