14 Lugg Street,
Magnificent Family Home on 1027sqmIf you are seeking a family home on 1027m2 with outstanding style and located in a prized location with gorgeous views, then look no further. This 1940's architect designed double brick art-deco (with a nod to Spanish-mission design) home features unique and stunning allure that is not often seen in Brisbane. It has benefited from a total renovation and transformation into a 21st century showpiece.
'Bellavista' enjoys a distinguished street presence, with a bespoke wrought-iron fence. From the moment you step into the front portico, you will realise that this home is truly exceptional. Astute attention to detail and exquisite styling, high ceilings and distinctive features are juxtaposed with the contemporary living requirements demanded by modern families.
The current owners are in possession of the original architectural drawings from esteemed Brisbane architects from that era, Bligh and Jessup. It is apparent that this was an exemplar quality build that has stood the test of time, both in terms of style and craftsmanship. The renovation has resulted in a very liveable family home, with a central designer kitchen that flows to the dining room to a substantial rear deck – so important for family life and entertaining today. The deck offers gorgeous and sweeping views to Mt Coot-tha and beyond.
The kitchen would have any epicurean salivating, with a fabulous freestanding Rosieres Paul Bocuse double oven and cooktop, Miele dishwasher, black granite benchtops, and generous 2-pac white cabinetry. On this level is a wine cellar with a built-in custom-made sideboard, and an elegant sitting room with front exterior access that would work well as a home office.
The home offers 5 exceptionally large and beautiful bedrooms, most with built-in robes. The master bedroom suite is upstairs, and provides expansive views, including to the city. The en-suite bathroom is exquisite, with Carrara marble vanity, Emperador marble tiling, and beautiful art deco mirrors.
Downstairs provides more living space, and access to the lower patio and rear garden through arched doors. While the garden is terraced and beautiful, the star of the show here is the stunning pool and spa recently installed by Brisbane's elite pool designer Majestic Pools. A summer house shingled in cedar, and gorgeous sandstone paving complete the picture. Simply - wow!
The location is superb. Quiet yet close to public and private schools, Ashgrove and Paddington shops and café's, public transport, and multiple parks and walking tracks. It's around 5kms to the CBD, and offers an enviable inner urban lifestyle.
