    A Genuinely Rare Find – One Of The Most Unique Penthouse Properties Brisbane Has To Offer

    In a quiet street, atop a small, nostalgic, exposed brick building lies one of Holland Park West’s most amazing residences. It is no exaggeration to say that the magnetic features of this property are beyond the scope of standard real estate advertisements, in a home that simply has to be ‘seen to be believed’.

    With over 400 square metres of rooftop living, and heart-stopping panoramic city and mountain views, it’s hard to imagine that the outlook gets any better than this… until, that is, you pivot towards the incredible treetop vista that surrounds this truly hidden gem.

    This remarkable penthouse offers wonderfully versatile living spaces, having been significantly modernised over the years, with only a few subtle hints of its humble 70’s origins… such as the funky retro tiles in the sun room, exposed bricks in the living spaces, the original family bathroom and the original under-cover swimming pool at the far end of the expansive deck.

    Step inside the front door of this 3rd level apartment and your eye is immediately drawn to the inviting grassy lawn terrace and the city skyline.

    Imagine cocktails at sundown, drinking in the red glow over Mt Cootha as it slowly expands like a halo around the city buildings before their twinkling night lights make an appearance.

    The living room gives a nod to the 1970’s, with its funky exposed brick walls.

    It opens out to the lawn terrace and invites the city views in.

    Modern white-washed tiles lead you up to the study area, a versatile space that could also function as another dining room or even a media room.

    One step down from the study, you will find a perfect spot for dining, which also opens out to the lawn terrace on one side and the incredibly large, all-weather, entertaining timber deck on the other side.

    This dining space provides good flow through to the recently modernised kitchen that boasts high end finishes: a stunning 40mm stone waterfall benchtop; Miele appliances; an induction cooktop; ingenious floor to ceiling storage with soft close drawers and cupboards; data points; a stainless steel breakfast servery opening on to the entertaining deck, and a walk-through pantry that provides the hall access to the rear bedrooms.

    One of the three bedrooms can be found behind the kitchen, accessed by a private hall and serviced by a modern bathroom …..

    … that also conveniently and discreetly provides the laundry facilities.

    Storage is on offer everywhere in this fabulous abode, with a linen press tucked away in this hall and more hidden storage just around the corner.

    2 further spacious bedrooms can be found at the rear of the property in the original section of the home.

    Freshly painted and newly carpeted, they can be closed off from the rest of the residence with a clever 2-way door, that either closes off the master bedroom and walk-in robe, or closes the walk-through pantry off to create a very private 2 bedroom zone at the back of the apartment.

    Both bedrooms open onto the pool deck, with the master opening first into a ‘groovy’ sunroom featuring gorgeous original 1970’s tiles and louvre windows.

    These bedrooms are serviced by the ‘very original’ bathroom that features a sunken bath, shower and vanity. It is waiting for your final cosmetic touch to complete this property’s transformation.

    The swimming pool is situated on the upper deck at the rear of the property.

    Completely under-cover, with bright skylights providing a fabulous ambiance, it features a modern semi-frameless glass balustrade and striking timber fencing, ensuring ultimate privacy for pool parties and late night swims.

    The pool deck is serviced by a ‘very original’ pool powder room, with both shower and toilet facilities, that is waiting for your personalised touch!

    There is also a separate rear entrance to the home off the lower pool deck (a back door as such) leading to a rear stairwell on the property … great for separate living or teenager late night returns!

    A remote, double lock-up, 2 car garage can also be found on ground level, near the stairwell entrance to the property.

    Summary Of Features:

    * 1970’s modernised penthouse apartment on the third floor, with 180 degree city and mountain views
