One of Teneriffe Hill's Best.. An Extraordinary Offering.Property ID 1560782For the New Farm/Teneriffe area this grand family home offers an unrivalled mix of size, position, build quality, technology and off street parking.
The block spans 1103m2. With rare 20 metre frontages to both Teneriffe Drive and Waverley Street, there is the potential to subdivide or develop further (STCA).
The house spreads over three storeys with over 520m2 under roof. In addition there are decks on each level and a separate huge pool area with water features and more expansive decking.
The top floor parents' retreat exceeds most one bedroom apartments in size and amenities. There are four further king sized bedrooms, four large bathrooms, built-in double office, gym, home theatre and 2000 bottle temperature and humidity controlled wine cellar. There is room for the biggest family.
In addition to three massive floor plates, there is a great sense of volume from the high ceilings and a grand entrance foyer which projects up 12 metres. The unrestricted views through the walls of glass stretch from Breakfast Creek to Moreton Island's sand dunes and the Gateway Bridge. The highly elevated block has the perfect north/north east orientation with its back to the western sun. It captures every breeze.
In one of Brisbane's smallest and most prestigious suburbs, Teneriffe Drive adjoins bushland, is above and has views of the river, yet is walking distance to all that Teneriffe/New Farm/Newstead and Fortitude Valley can offer.
A commercial quality build of suspended concrete slabs and double brick and block work is a contrast to modern lightweight construction. With wooden shutters, polished granite and oak joinery repeated throughout, the level of finish is top class.
Functional high end inclusions such as intercom in each room, Vacu-Maid, reverse cycle air conditioning and continuous hot water make a highly liveable environment. The bespoke wrought iron balustrading, the sunken lounge surround sound theatre and full entertainers' wet bar exemplify the uncommon but easy luxury this house provides. A separate outside toilet accommodates outside staff.
Built-in Cat 5 cabling, back to base security, computer controlled and automated garden irrigation and water capture system (20,000 litres of out of sight water storage) and fully automatic pool management, lets technology do most of the work for you. The commercial sized switchboard is able to be powered by a generator. The intercoms that link all rooms also link to the remote controlled front gate and music is wired through the whole house.
With a three car lock up garage providing direct access to the huge entertainer's kitchen and room for up eight other vehicles, the scourge of limited Teneriffe parking is amply avoided.
This house is incredibly solid, spacious and eye catching. It presents a rare opportunity to claim one of the premier houses in arguably the best position in Brisbane's most prestigious inner City suburb.
