Designer living delivered in an incomparable fashion.

By Terry Christodoulou 25/06/2021

This opulent manse set on the water’s edge in East Brisbane is arguably one of the cities most prestigious residences.

Combining architectural flair with interior design by the renowned Greg Natale, the home has seen no expense spared in its creation. Here, a heady and timeless combination of black, white and gold themed design indulges in Italian crafted marble, Venetian plaster and brass adornment.

The three-storey, 960sqm, 5-bedroom, 6-bathroom, 4- car parking lands on a gilded, 597sqm plot of inner-city riverfront.

Immediate and imposing is the home’s attention to detail. From brass archways, the mixed-use of steel and glass and vaulted ceilings to the custom-designed furniture by Natale  – which can be included with the purchase of the home – all aspects of the home have been highly considered.

The middle level sees most of the living and entertaining areas including the kitchen – replete with paonazetto marble benchtops, Subzero and Gaggenau appliances alongside a butler’s pantry. Also on this level is a library (or grand piano room), office, powder room, laundry.

Every room has been thoughtfully put together with the use of Venetian glass tapware, for example the dining room is wrapped in De Gournay wallpaper and enjoys custom-designed paonazetto marble fireplace.

The upper level sees the bedrooms which all hold their own unique character.

The master bedroom is grand in proportions and is adorned with Gucci wallpaper. It connects to a 10-metre (no, not a typo) walk-in wardrobe inclusive of a floor to ceiling shoe and bag storage.

The other bedrooms also include walk-in robes and ensuites, which follow a similar theme of marble adornment.

Elsewhere, the lower level sees an ornately designed theatre room alongside a wellness centre and living space that flows out to the barbeque terrace, pool and lawn areas.

The rest of this level consists of a guest bedroom, with ensuite and built-in robe, gym, sauna, ice-bath room, steam room, extra storage rooms and space for a wine cellar for the avid wine connoisseur.

All levels are serviced by a lift and curving concrete staircase brandishing a Greg Natale signature steel and brass balustrade.

The exclusive residence arrives with its own jetty on the Brisbane River and is nearby to Mowbray park and Brisbane CBD.

The listing is with Henry Hodge (+61 455 500 035) of Henry Hodge Real Estate; POA.
