Coffee king selling sleek Brisbane home
COFFEE king Phil Di bella and his wife Gianna have just put their sleek, modern and super sexy New Farm home on the market through award-winning Ray White New Farm principal Matt Lancashire.
The immaculate four year old architectural haven at 30 Turner Ave, New Farm sits on 636sqm in the heart of the sought-after inner city Brisbane suburb.
Ms Di Bella said there was no doubt the family loved their four-bedroom home for its livability and entertaining spaces.
“We have built other homes before that look stunning but I didn’t enjoy living there but with Turner St, it’s so liveable and perfect. It just works,” she said.
“It’s got a homely feel yet it has huge street appeal and immense presence.
“We are only moving as we want some more grass for our kids.
“It’s a wonderful home that has been perfectly designed to include so many features characteristic of modern day living.
“It’s perfect to lock up and leave which is great when we spend a lot of time at the Gold Coast.”
The Di Bellas bought the vacant block, considered “as rare as hen’s teeth” in New Farm, over four years ago.
“We briefed our architect to create a modern home that had warm wood with natural stones. We have a lot of concrete and stone in the house and it had to sprawl out into an outdoor entertaining area, which was very important to us,” she said.
“We wanted a master suite separate from our kids and our intention was to raise our the kids here as they got older,” she said of their children, ages 9 and 7.
The building process took two years and it was designed by Nam Concepts, a young progressive design practice based in Coopers Plains.
Nam’s strengths and capabilities have been built upon the extensive project experience of its creator Raf Tomaszewski, who has 20 year’s experience working in Australia and overseas.
“It’s a low maintenance house that looks good and we have a very busy lifestyle. Plus the area appealed to us as it’s just down the road from New Farm Park,” Ms Di Bella said.
“Turner St is very high and you get beautiful breezes which is great in summer.”
Ray White New Farm principal Matt Lancashire said early interest in the property had been good.
“It’s generously proportioned with a modern and minimalist floor plan. I love it. It truly delivers on its brief to have seemless indoor and outdoor entertainment with functionality, space and privacy in mind for the most modern family living.”
The four bedroom home is fully automated with a state of the art security system and internal lift access to all levels.
