Modern Luxury and Natural Splendour in Perfect Harmony

Sold $1,170,000

AUCTION ON-SITE @ 12:30pm, Saturday 21 October 2023, unless sold prior.


Nestled atop a tranquil north-facing hillside in a secluded cul-de-sac in The Gap, this architectural masterpiece harmoniously combines nature with modern living. Majestic treetop vistas will form the backdrop to your new life of convenience, where Brisbane is an easy commute away and the bustling, welcoming communities of The Gap and Ashgrove surround you.


Built on an 825-square-metre block, offering plenty of space for outdoor living to complement the luxurious mid-century design of the home itself. It’s built to showcase the hillside setting, with the Taylor Range bushland visible through the swaying treetops.


Arrival is at the foot of the property, where a double lock-up remote garage greets you. A staircase leads up through the landscaped gardens to the home. This home has enjoyed significant upgrades over the years and the timeless finishes are simply breathtaking.


Entry is into a mezzanine leading down to the air-conditioned middle level, the social heart of the home and a space anyone with an eye for entertaining will enjoy. Warm timber floors and soaring ceilings give a theatrical ambience imbued with spatial abundance. The living and dining area seamlessly flow into one another in an open-plan fashion, while the modern kitchen has an oven, rangehood, dishwasher, four burner gas cooktop, ample storage and black granite benchtops.


Sliding glass doors lead out to an expansive deck, one of our favourite features of the home. Your personal perch amongst the treetops, it presents the perfect spot to enjoy the verdant views, transforming sundowners and family barbeques into times of intense natural beauty!


The upper level is where you’ll find the sleeping quarters. There are three bedrooms in total, all with ceiling fans and air-conditioning units, two coming with mirrored built-in robes and French doors leading to an undercover courtyard. The master suite also has a built-in-robe and boasts a recently renovated ensuite bathroom with a shower, vanity, floor to ceiling tiles and stone benchtops to boot. North-east facing, you’ll love the tendrils of morning sun sneaking through the window blinds. A main bathroom services the rest of the home, featuring a shower, bathtub, vanity and floor to ceiling tiles.


On the lowest of the three levels a world of possibilities unfurls with space that could be a teenagers’ retreat, a home office space, or an overflow for when you have visitors. Carpeted and spacious, this multi-functional area is yours to turn into something special.


Outdoors, the sprawling terraced yard has space for a flourishing vegetable garden. Sustainable living in this forest setting is here for the taking! The space is cleverly maximised, while improvements over the years mean low-maintenance living to go with the high enjoyment factor!
