This imposing grey-hued Coorparoo family home made a huge impression on eager buyers in Queensland’s capital, with the lucky winning bidder snapping it up in a private treaty for an undisclosed sum somewhere in the region of $2,400,000 this week.
Once a finalist in the Master Builders Housing & Construction Awards, the five-bedroom wonder sits in one of the suburb of Coorparoo’s most prestigious enclaves, oozing buckets of street appeal from its 602sqm plot (467sqm of which is distinctive living space).
Fully privacy is provided with elegant black laser-cut screens, which contrast beautifully with the solemn concrete-look finishes and brass accents dotted here and there.
Floor-to-ceiling glass walls of window ensure daylight floods all the living spaces across the various levels, with hundreds of louvres providing excellent cross-ventilation and leaving little need for the ducted air conditioning.
Nevertheless, a cosy feel of an evening is still possible on cooler nights, enhanced by Marri hardwood joinery and a beautiful Aurora suspended wood fire from Byron Bay.
Despite its impressive, stylish aesthetic, comfortable family living remains at the heart of this home’s design, with a large media/rumpus room providing the perfect chillout zone, while the open-plan living/kitchen/dining zone offers the new owners plenty of space to relax, work and play as a family.
Of course, entertaining is also well and truly catered for. Beside the saltwater swimming pool sits a stylish timber-ceilinged fan-cooled alfresco pavilion, complete with fully facilitated outdoor kitchen and, thanks to clever angles, plenty of privacy and northern sunshine.
Inside, a butler’s pantry keeps the functional mess out of sight, leaving the designer kitchen and its seven-seater island breakfast bar to take centre stage.
Best of all for impressing guests, the wine storage in this house is on steroids: twin Vintec wine fridges in the kitchen are dwarfed by a magnificent 144-bottle wine display room encased in glass. Swoon!
All the smarts are here, too, from the video intercom to the keyless entry and security system, with the potential to involve many more elements in the home into an overarching system, especially in the comfortable media room, which is tucked away at the rear of the house alongside a separate guest suite.
This opulent but functional and low-maintenance home has so much going for it, surely its new owners will be sticking around for the long term. A lucky family indeed.
