Behind the elegant 1930s façade of this hilltop Coorparoo home lies a triumph of modern architectural design.

Meticulously transformed, this spectacular home captures sweeping city views from each of its two levels. From the manicured front gardens bordered by vivid flowering bougainvillea, to the classic verandah and into the original home, the entrance exudes a real sense of Queensland’s yesteryear. Inside, a grand master bedroom retains its high ceilings, VJ walls and bay windows, while enjoying the modern luxuries of a beautiful ensuite and walk-in dressing room. Also boasting direct access to a private decked sunroom, the master is perfectly positioned adjacent to a separate nursery or fifth bedroom.

Finished in rich polished hardwood flooring, a long hallway culminates in the home’s ultra-contemporary open-plan expanse. Here, soak up panoramic city and mountain views from the magnificent granite and stone kitchen, luxurious lounge/dining areas and vast alfresco entertaining deck with integrated barbecue. The gourmet kitchen boasts a long marble island breakfast bar, walk-in pantry and luxury appliances including two ovens, gas cook top, dishwasher and wine fridge.

Featuring wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling glass paneling, the entire space can be transformed into open-air living, while striking aluminium louvers offer privacy and all-weather screening. A superb northern aspect and architectural windows harnessing the breeze from every direction enhance the home’s natural ambiance.

An equally impressive lower level hosts three further bedrooms, (two with walk-in robes and one with its own ensuite) plus a separate purpose-built home office. A spacious lounge flows onto its own outdoor deck and into the terraced and beautifully landscaped rear gardens.

Cleverly designed to offer the option of self-contained dual living, this home is positioned at the crest of a prestigious street, in the heart of Coorparoo’s cafe scene, bringing together the finest in traditional charm and cutting-edge contemporary design.
