Only 8 radial kilometres from Brisbane CBD, in the coveted Fig Tree Pocket enclave, sits the iconic Cubberla Homestead a 7.93* acre home perched on a tributary of the Brisbane River. Arguably the largest parcel of land this close to Brisbane CBD, and with a development approval granted for subdivision, Cubberla Homestead represents an unrivalled opportunity. Throughout the world, you'd be sorely pressed to travel 8km from a major city centre and find yourself on your own private estate of this size.
The magnificent home that sits high on the property, with views from sunrise to sunset, is only part of this exceptional offering - it's the land that really sets this property apart; with the nearly eight entirely usable acres being fully fenced, and bordered by Cubberla Creek which is a wonderland for children's play. Well set up for horses, a sand dressage arena is supported by four stables, day yards, a wash bay, tack rooms and feed/float shed. There is direct access from the property to Cliveden Park and Brisbane Girls Grammar Playing Fields as well as a short stroll to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary and Fig Tree Pocket Equestrian Centre, the property provides an entirely unique acreage experience within a stone's throw of the CBD.
The grand homestead offers a true feeling of country living in the city. Set on one level, the 1,001 square meter home was designed by renowned architects Cook & Kerrison. The spacious and luxury feel is enhanced by multiple entertaining and living spaces, focused around a central entertaining hub at the centre of the home that truly maximises the family-oriented atmosphere.
The house is comprised of four separate wings, easily discernible from an aerial view. A parents wing, children's wing, guest wing and staff wing (now a two bedroom self-contained granny flat) radiate from the central hub of the property.
The relaxed architecture blends seamlessly with the rolling green hills of the property and the large windows and louvres throughout maximise views over the tranquil setting while flooding the home with light and natural airflow. Polished hardwood floorboards, high ceilings, ducted air-conditioning and clever lighting feature throughout, while expansive bi-fold doors maximise indoor/outdoor living, providing easy access to the pavilion style, outdoor entertaining area, with integrated speakers, ample seating and never to be built out views through the hanging grapevines over the rolling paddocks.
A 3 bay garage with separate workshop, private 10 metre pool and floodlit tennis court finish the home - positioning it as the perfect home for a large or extended family, and one that can entertain all year round.

Away from the house, Cubberla Cottage sits overlooking the paddocks. With a kitchenette, bathroom and storage, this would work perfectly for a teen or a caretaker or simply as a large cubby.
