Prepare to be captivated by the extraordinary position, proportions and panorama of this luxurious two-bedroom riverfront apartment.
As large as most three-bedroom apartments and whisper quiet, residence 76 boasts the undisputed best position within the prestigious waterfront Stradbroke Building. Long-to-water, its expansive north-east facing living and entertaining spaces capture uninterrupted views of the Brisbane River from every angle of its Level 14 floorplan.
Wall-to wall glass doors and windows frame breathtaking vistas that stretch from the Howard Smith Wharves, across New Farm, Brisbane’s Eastern suburbs and over the lush mountainous Whites Hill Reserve. So elevated is this apartment, that the views extend as far as the Port of Brisbane, Gateway Bridge, and on a clear day, Moreton Island!
Bathed in natural light and fresh north-east breezes, the spacious open-plan interior connects with a huge 23.5m2 alfresco entertaining terrace balcony. Out here, there is more than enough space multiple lounges, dining setting, barbeque and bar setup, while still allowing guests the opportunity to move around freely and soak up the sublime spectacle.
With fresh white walls throughout, the home has been appointed with premium finishes, from the plush commercial-grade wool carpets to the floor-to-ceiling travertine tiled bathrooms and beautiful kitchen featuring granite tiling and benchtops, along with European appliances.
Two large bedrooms enjoy separate “wings” of the home, each with balcony, river views and the master boasting a walk-in dressing room and luxurious ensuite. Picture ending the day reclined in your private spa bath surrounded by candles, soothing music, a glass of your favourite vintage and clear views of the glittering night-time landscape.
Awaken each morning to glorious river sunrises, City Cats gliding by the window and people strolling along the New Farm Riverwalk.
Further highlights of the apartment include ducted air-conditioning, a large second bathroom with separate toilet; a separate internal laundry room, outstanding storage, intercom entry, parking space and lock-up storage cage in the secure garage.
The building itself offers a five-star lifestyle, starting from the grand entry foyer welcoming residents and their guests. Secure, lift-serviced and superbly maintained, the predominantly owner-occupied complex is attended by a warm, helpful and highly efficient onsite management. A concierge-style front reception collects delivered packages, offers a fabulous library of novels and takes bookings for the building’s unique recreation room (with table tennis and pool table, kitchenette, and TV screen). A genuine community spirit exists here, with residents sharing a flourishing herb garden and holding annual Christmas parties!
