The penthouse inside one of Brisbane’s oldest buildings just landed on the market.
Rarely does a property with such sweet history stay on the market long.
To appreciate just how phenomenal this home is, here’s a little of the history and context.
The Queensland capital city is built around its long snake-like river.
Back in the 1800s, things looked a little different.
There was no South Bank, no Story Bridge, or Queens St Mall.
Although there are few landmarks from back then you would recognise today.
Like the CSR (Colonial Sugar Refining Company) Refinery located in Lamington Street, New Farm.
The Colonial Sugar Refining Company built the CSR Refinery in 1892-1893.
This was a powerhouse of industrial activity back in the day, sending Queensland sugar on its merry way around the globe.
But like everything in life, things change, and one could argue things here changed for the better.
In 2000, CSR sold the site to Mirvac which worked with the Queensland Heritage Council and the Urban Renewal Taskforce to develop a plan to convert the site into loft-style apartments as the centrepiece of the $250 million Cutters Landing residential precinct.
Mirvac’s transformation of the refinery into loft-style apartments led it to win two Queensland architecture awards for successfully incorporating the charm of the heritage buildings into the contemporary facilities.
The crowning glory has to be the penthouse.
Showcasing its humble beginnings, with original timber beams, soaring ceilings and large light-filled windows.
This sweet home has transformed into a modern-day masterpiece.
The property features; new oak timber floors throughout the living area, and a large Quartzite kitchen island bench, integrated Liebherr fridges, under bench Vintec wine fridge, Miele appliances.
All of this and we haven’t even mentioned the exquisite riverfront views stretching from the Brisbane River, across New Farm to the city skyline.
If you have a sweet tooth and are looking to buy the perfect waterfront slice in Brisbane, now is your chance.
