Nestled into the hillside at 58 Watson Street Newmarket, this multi-million dollar property is hiding some big surprises.
What looks like a single storey home from the road quickly opens up to a six-level dwelling full of luxury and class, and boasting some of the best views you can find in Brisbane!
Coronis Inner North agent Alex Ehsani says the owners built the massive estate to house their family, and that’s reflected in the design.
“It’s an amazing home, very unique,” Alex says. “There’s complete city views from every single level, from the piano bar at the top to the gym at the bottom.”
“It was built to live in and that’s why there are two apartments on level three,” he says.
“They were planned for the kids but you could install your parents in there or rent them out, they’re self-contained with separate entry so you can do really anything with it.”
Coming in from the street leads you to the fifth floor, known as the grand entry. Impressive double doors lead past a twisting staircase to a spacious open plan living space and out to a large balcony. Don’t forget to take in the kitchen on your way through! Decorated in stark white with marble waterfall counters and splashbacks, it’s hard to know where to begin. Top-of-the-range appliances including an integrated dishwasher and fridge are perfect for entertaining, while the sienna marble surfaces are visually interesting and texturally satisfying.
The other exciting feature on the entry floor is a custom dining table.
“The dining table was actually built into the body of the house,” Alex explains. “It’s this beautiful marble design that’s internally illuminated and seats 12 people.
Weighing 350kg, the formal dining table is similar in grandeur to the piano bar on the top floor, although it takes up more room! The piano bar may be the smallest space in the building, but there’s still plenty of room for a glittering chandelier, piano, onyx marble bar, and a large terrace with phenomenal views of Mt Coot-tha, the northern suburbs and the Brisbane CBD.
Head down two floors – using the internal lift or the black and gold galaxy stairs – and you’ll reach the lavish master suite, with space set aside for three additional bedrooms and a kitchenette. The master bedroom sets the standard, enjoying a full marble en suite with a deluxe spa bath and a private terrace with outdoor dining.
Two self-contained apartments take up the next floor down, with their own kitchen, bathroom and entry. While the piano bar is cosy, the bar on this floor is the opposite – large and sumptuous, with lashings of marble and its own wine cellar!
Topping it all off is the fully refurbished pool area, with an integrated spa and a poolside pavilion with fantastic, tree-framed views of the city.
“It’s in a prime location,” Alex says. “Just seven kilometres from the CBD and Southbank.”
“We’ve been fielding a lot of enquiries even though it’s only been on the market for a short time.”
