A six-bedroom mansion in Brisbane’s affluent suburb of Hamilton has just gone on the market, and with all these features it’s not just for pocket change.
The 2,456sqm property at 55 Markwell Street, Hamilton, was valued at $4.3 million last year according to CoreLogic, and now the owners are seeking expressions of interest on the estate.
From its impressive gated entrance to its full-floor master retreat, this home is built to impress. The most striking elements of the design – its bold angles and monochromatic colours – are relatively new additions thanks to renovations by award-winning Brisbane firm Shaun Lockyer Architects.
Standing three stories high, the home enjoys 180-degree views of the Brisbane skyline, including the river and CBD. With walls of glass on every floor, the view isn’t something you can miss, whether you’re on the treadmill or lying in bed.
The ground floor of this expansive property is dedicated to lifestyle and living. A full-size indoor squash court takes up the centre of the space, with a home gym and games room off to the side. There’s a bathroom down there to help you clean up after a workout, a sauna, private theatre and a luxe wine cellar.
Head up to the first floor and you’ll find all the things you expect in a home – bedrooms, kitchen, dining room, lounge – but they’re all a little bit different here, all a little bit more. Multiple family living areas boast high ceilings, statement lighting, top-end decor and exciting features like rough stone cladding and raised platforms. The kitchen is an exceptional preparation area. It has its own city views, a skylight, marble benchtops and luxury appliances to make cooking easy.
Thanks to the hillside block the first floor is also how you’ll access the deck, pizza oven, and pool. The 21-metre lap pool will stay the perfect temperature no matter the lap weather, and the attached spa is always a great way to relax. Head across the pool and up a flight of poured concrete stairs to a beautiful timber-clad barbecue area – complete with it’s own pizza oven!
While the majority of the bedrooms are on the first floor, there’s something a little different for the master suite. This suite of rooms fills the entire top floor, including foyer space, private balcony, expansive walk-in robe, and stone-tiled en suite with a freestanding tub. Sunlight floods in through wall-length windows, highlighting the exposed timber rafters and feature inset behind the master bed.
There’s no shortage of luxurious detail across all facets of this property, from the main house, leisure facilities, and separate cottage perfect for visiting families or staff. Best of all, it’s within walking distance to the Racecourse Road precinct, and close to plenty of schools!
