Description: A truly exceptional property, this architecturally designed, award-winning two-storey home is an absolute masterpiece set on a sweeping 2037m2 allotment tucked away in one of Brisbane's most prestigious and leafiest family-friendly suburbs, Fig Tree Pocket. It's so rare that a property of such high calibre becomes available on the market. In 2012 it received a Regional Commendation award by the Royal Australian Institute of Architects and was a Finalist for Australian House of the Year in Houses magazine. A celebration of contemporary and stylish living connected to a beautiful landscape, the home by Plazibat Architects has also been widely published in editorial spreads for ArchDaily, Contemporist and Houses to name a few.
Custom-designed for the architect's own family and built to exacting standards, this magnificent home offers a seamless flow between indoor and outdoor living. It also features rooms that are almost all north-facing to capture an abundance of natural light throughout. The warm and inviting entry to the home is through a private arrival garden into the lobby with an impressive double-height void. The stylish gourmet kitchen on the ground floor is a dream for family gatherings and entertaining with its large walk-through butler's pantry, matt black cabinetry, large timber bench, quality Miele appliances and Gessi tapware. Sliding doors on the north and east sides recede into the wall to fully open onto the outdoor living and barbecue areas. Parents can escape to the exquisite master retreat with luxury ensuite with twin vanity and island bath. A home office and separate multi-purpose/media room provide plenty of spaces for the family to relax and unwind.
Clever design features, quality materials and architectural interest is evident at every turn of this remarkable home, such as the spotted gum floors and joinery, architectural lighting and double-height void with indoor bamboo garden. The large and beautifully grassed level backyard is every family's dream for spending time together playing outdoors. When it's time to cool off, jump in the spectacular infinity salt-water pool surrounded by beautiful Australian natives in the low maintenance gardens. This idyllic home also has a terraced vegetable garden with a well-established lime tree and a large rain water tank with dual water system for the bathrooms and the pool. There is plenty of parking for the whole family with three undercover car spaces and extra fourth car space. Additional features include zoned ducted air-conditioning for year-round comfort, mud room arrival, workshop and loads of storage throughout the house.
With quality schools just a short walk away, including Fig Tree Pocket State School and Brisbane Montessori School, this property is also conveniently located just 100m to the bus stop and 2 minute drive to the Fig Tree Pocket Equestrian Centre.
