Contemporary Grandeur On The RiverThe exclusive suburb of Chelmer is a leafy riverside address only a few minutes from major retail centres, schools, colleges and the Brisbane CBD. This rare 2,050 sqm riverfront property offers a unique opportunity to experience luxurious contemporary living in a tranquil, scenic location.
A leading International Sydney, Hong Kong and Dubai architect was engaged to design an ultra-modern home befitting this prime position. The result is a sleek and spacious four-level modular residence that provides a hi-tech environment for today's busy family.
A security gate entry adjacent to the four-car garage leads past a water feature and graceful olive tree to the formal entrance, where there is a large home office and library forming a designated executive business space separate from the home. Floating timber stairs within glass walls lead up to main living areas, while a separate discreet staircase gives access to the basement level rumpus room/gymnasium and guest suite.
The linear design offers simplicity and ease of maintenance, with open plan living areas flowing out to broad al fresco terraces with a heated lap pool, spa and poolside bbq kitchen. Sliding and stacking glass doors access spacious lounge and dining areas warmed by an ingenious suspended fireplace. The kitchen, defined by a large granite-topped island bar, features top-range Gaggenau appliances, Leibherr fridges and a butler's pantry. Also on this level are a fully-equipped home cinema and a temperature-controlled wine cellar to accommodate the most impressive vintage collection. Family sleeping areas occupy the top level, comprising three ensuite bedrooms, with the master suite opening to a large private terrace facing the river. A study area at the head of the stairs is complemented by a separate computer desk incorporated into the master bedroom.
Ultra-high ceilings, gleaming 'spotted gum' flooring and zoned air conditioning feature throughout. Outdoors, lawns beneath tall trees slope down to the riverfront, providing ample play areas for children and pets, while adults can relax around a riverside firepit on cooler evenings. At any time of year, this serene location offers opportunities for kayaking, boating and fishing that are so rare within a capital city.
