Aspirational Inner-City LifestyleSituated on a rare 1240m2 of elevated north-east facing land in inner-city Auchenflower, this remarkable home is a triumphant collaboration of contemporary design and quality craftsmanship.

The kitchen, living and dining rooms feature rich timber floors throughout. The generous living room is characterized by a magnificent marble fireplace. Reclaimed from one of Brisbane's fine heritage homes, it was meticulously restored and installed under the guidance of the owners' architect and builder. A huge mirror above the fireplace reflects the stunning city backdrop while floor to ceiling windows provide views across the ridge to the south and french doors open to the northern terrace and garden.

A centre island provides options for casual eating, and Corian benchtops and 2pac cabinetry with soft close function provide style and practicality.
