If you’re looking for some of Brisbane’s best views, you’ll find them at this elegant riverfront home in Bulimba.
Standing out from its neighbours at 12 Portside Place, Bulimba, this modern, two-level home is filled with geometric touches speaking of harmony and rhythm.
As you make your way through the entrance you know this place revolves around creating a soothing environment. It’s like stepping into a rainforest, and there’s a feeling of transparency, with the vista in view before you even step inside.
The heart of the home is warm and inviting, with the hanging pendant fireplace adding that extra special touch! That fireplace actually edges one section of the foyer, creating a sense of privacy within a beautifully open space.
Curving along the western edge of the house, the kitchen is a sculptural masterpiece showing off a beautifully streamlined look. The stone and timber island counter gifts eye-catching texture to the soothing space and provides a home for integrated state-of-the-art appliances.
With 180-degree views of the Brisbane River, the residence laps up the location. Big bi-fold doors allow the living area to spill out onto a fabulous entertaining pavilion with all the bells and whistles, including a barbecue, pizza oven, and bar fridge! The glass-framed pool has its own views of the river – it’s almost like there’s no space between the two, with an expansive lawn beside it making a fantastic place to play. Even better, the foliage continues up the fences on either side to create a private, leafy escape.
It’s no wonder how Portside Place got its name – with boats constantly passing by, all you need to do is sit back and enjoy the view (and if you turn around, light pours into the home and sets it aglow!).
Upstairs, the timber panelling adds lots of warmth, and elevates the style of the area. There’s so much space up here, and it’s only increased by the roomy corner balcony.
The bedrooms are a blank canvas, allowing the greenery to create a bold visual statement in each of the four sleeping spaces. It’s a different story in the bathrooms, where layers and layers of texture recreate all the best elements of the home.
The entire build speaks of quality. Everywhere you look, whether across the river, or inside the gorgeously outfitted house, there’s something to admire.
