Brisbane’s ‘sky home’ sold for $6.150M

Brisbane’s best sky home has just sold for $6.150 million.

The four-bedroom, four-bathroom 670sq m residence at 10/70 Bowen Terrace, New Farm was considered “next-level luxury” by Ray White New Farm power duo Matt Lancashire and Christine Rudolph.

Darwin-based owner Brooke David’s luxury New Farm property had a master bathroom that was unforgettable and well known for its bath from which was the perfect place to soak in the tub, under a magnetised crystal halo of lights, and gaze over the Story Bridge through the floor-to-ceiling glass walls.

“It was a home, yes it was definitely a sky home. I wanted a Manhattan-style apartment to take advantage of that view,” Mr David said.

“The bathroom really was huge and I had always planned to stay in Brisbane every second week but in the end I was only getting to Brisbane for three days of every month, so it was madness to keep it,” said the semi-retired owner.

“I’m sad to let it go but I’m happy it’s sold. It didn’t realty take that long in the end to sell.”

Mr David said he had engaged award-winning architect Justin O’Neill to create a bespoke apartment over 12 months.

Ray White New Farm principal Matt Lancashire said it was actually two apartments, as Mr David had bought both floors to created this sky home.

The sale of this show-stopping residence was coordinated between Ray White New Farm sales team Matt Lancashire and Christine Rudolph with Place Estate Agents duo Damian and Sarah Hackett.

“We ran an amazing campaign national campaign and we secured this buyer together in a sign of great coordination between some of Brisbane’s best leading agents,” Mr Lancashire said.

“Homes like this two-level luxurious apartment are in high-demand. It’s as big as a prestige residence but without the maintenance,” he said.

“We have many high net worth clients looking for very similar properties around Brisbane.”
