European elegance sells for $5M

A gorgeous two-storey penthouse in Kangaroo Point has just sold for $5 million.

The 726sqm apartment in the exclusive Castlebar Cove tower, which was first noticed by OzHome News at the end of last year, enjoys four generous bedrooms and European style elegance.

“It was bought by some local buyers,” explains Place Bulimba agent Sarah Hackett. “This couple have worked incredibly hard in their lives and now they’re empty nesters, and they’ve found their forever home.”

A beautifully wallpapered foyer with a leadlight entry door, glittering chandeliers and French oak parquetry floors leads to a palatial open-plan living and dining space.

Built-in timber shelving surrounds a spectacular gas fireplace with marble detailing, while glass concertina doors fold out to a wrap-around patio framed by greenery.

Enjoy incredible views of both stretches of the Brisbane River from the rooftop pool and spa, or make use of the outdoor kitchen!

“You have your own foyer and your own two levels,” Sarah says. 

“It feels like a New York penthouse, particularly at nighttime.”

Meal preparation is a breeze whether on the terrace or inside. A breakfast bar connects the dining room to the state-of-the-art kitchen, complete with waterfall granite benchtops, a breakfast bar, the latest appliances and even a dedicated wine fridge.

Access to the top of the dual-level penthouse couldn’t be easier, thanks to a private internal elevator and sweeping spiral staircase. While the lower level is dedicated to living and entertaining, the second floor is a perfect, private haven.

“It’s overwhelmingly amazing, it’s unique,” Sarah says. “It’s like a sky home, with a spiral staircase in the middle of the apartment and also the lift, so it’s friendly as you get into your years.”

The master bedroom comes with its own walk-through robe and private balcony, and a sophisticated en suite with a glass-framed toilet and luxe spa bath!

The dual-level penthouse even comes with its own four-car basement garage, perfect for quick trips to the CBD, Eagle Street Pier and Southbank. 

“This is a one-of-a-kind penthouse in this block,” Sarah says.  “The building itself is immaculate and the gardens are pristine, it’s quiet but upmarket.

“I’ve been selling for 25 years and haven’t seen anything as special as this.”
