73 Neville Road,
Bridgeman Downs, QLD
Happiness Awaits in Luxurious Acreage SanctuaryMASTERFUL design and modern luxury pair with a tranquil setting to propel this acreage home in prestigious Bridgeman Downs to the top of any high-end buyer's must-see list, and once seen, it will be instantly desired. A more perfect marriage of house, land and location is near impossible to imagine.
The sellers and their architect sat down 12yrs ago and skilfully designed the house as 720 m2 of self-contained living areas, which means it's essentially three homes in one and sitting on a whopping 10,480m2, it offers the savvy buyer a possible land-banking opportunity to one day on-sell some land to a developer for sub-division STCA.
We've spent decades living overseas for work and have, amazingly, lived in close to 50 homes, the now retired vendors said, "So we are very knowledgeable on the designs and features that make a house fantastic, and we've included them here.
A great example can be found in the gleaming main kitchen the cooktop station is 100mm lower than the benchtops for optimal use and comfort. And while we're in the kitchen, the porcelain benchtops were chosen because they're highly scratch resistant.
The porcelain piece cost $500 but $6000 to cut to fit because it's a rare and specialised skill. But it's the best surface, so that's what went in. And it still looks terrific.
The vendors' two adult children lived in the immaculate, landscaped property with pool for years before their careers took them south.
No matter where we were in the world we always came home here for Christmas, and hosted big, fun parties for extended family and friends. Such a great tradition, the sellers said. We love entertaining and this house with the flow from the family room to the giant deck does a superb job of hosting a large, happy crowd, or a more intimate dinner party inside.
When the vendors built the private sanctuary surrounded by nature, they prioritised separate living, which effectively created separate homes within a home. Effectively, three generations can live in perfect harmony.
Upper Level and for the parents,
- Master bedroom with oversized ensuite, walk-in robe, make-up and grooming station, and Juliette balcony overlooking extensively landscaped gardens.

And helping to keep the mood harmonious, they are all serviced by a three-way bathroom set-up so the shower, powder room and hand basins can be accessed individually.
For extended family or friends, and easily adapted to include a wet bar and, say, a pool table there is an additional 65m2 of living space which includes,
- Large bedroom with built-in wardrobe overlooks own entertaining area
- Family/dining room
- Fully equipped kitchen and own separate laundry
- Well appointed bathroom
As for street appeal, the home is set back 250m from Neville Road and hidden amongst the trees so it's invisible to passers-by!
When new people visit us here, you can see how blown away they are by the house and the setting. Like we said, we've lived in many, many houses and we don't really become attached to them, but this one is special. We'll really miss the fun times. And the quiet times.
If escaping the hurly-burly of modern life in your own secluded, contemporary, luxury home surrounded by relaxing birdsong and nature appeals to you, then 73 Neville Road is a must to inspect. (When you do visit, make sure you check out the wine cellar very cool.)
