Unique ap­proach to his­tory

The Courier-Mail - Property - - MARKET PLACE - EL­IZ­A­BETH REN­NIE

EL­E­GANCE abounds in this unique multi-level res­i­dence, the only stand-alone home in the pres­ti­gious Cut­ter’s Land­ing precinct.

With a de­sir­able river­front po­si­tion of­fer­ing a stunning panorama, this four-bed­room house not only makes the most of its lo­cale, but seam­lessly blends her­itage charm with mod­ern luxury.

For­merly the site of the CSR sugar re­fin­ery, the build­ing was trans­formed in 2004 into a high end res­i­den­tial devel­op­ment.

Chic and stylish, the house boasts a stunning in­te­rior, with struc­tural com­po­nents of the orig­i­nal char sec­tion of the re­fin­ery re­tained through­out.

Th­ese com­po­nents in­clude vaulted ceil­ings, cast iron col­umns, pol­ished tim­ber floors and pre­served brick walls, with gal­leries of win­dows pro­vid­ing an abun­dance of nat­u­ral light.

The tim­ber-floored main en­try gives way to a car­peted for­mal dining and living area, com­plete with an orig­i­nal fire­place.

At the rear of the lay­out, two sets of glass doors open to a cov­ered ter­race, framed by land­scaped gar­dens and of­fer­ing scenic views of the river and sur­rounds.

Ad­ja­cent to the for­mal ar­eas are the kitchen and meals area, which in­clude a sec­ond orig­i­nal fire­place.

The gal­ley style kitchen fea­tures in­te­grated stain­lesssteel ap­pli­ances, and an is­land bench with break­fast bar and sleek cab­i­netry, while the meals area has win­dows over­look­ing the river.

Nearby is a cen­tral bath­room with shower, as well as a bed­room with a built-in wardrobe.

As­cend­ing to the car­peted up­per level by a tim­ber stair­case, an im­pres­sive home of­fice/living area lies at the land­ing, with ex­posed beams, plan­ta­tion shut­ters and built-in cab­i­netry and shelv­ing adding to the in­te­rior el­e­gance.

Glass slid­ing doors ex­tend the space out to a tim­ber ve­randa, over­look­ing the front of the prop­erty.

The spa­cious main bed­room in­cor­po­rates a walk-in wardrobe with plenty of built-in stor­age, which flows through to an en­suite with twin van­i­ties, a dou­ble shower, spa bath and views to the river.

Two more bed­rooms are fea­tured on this level, both in­clud­ing built-in wardrobes and one with dual ac­cess to the home of­fice/living area.

A bath­room with a shower and sep­a­rate deep soak bath­tub is po­si­tioned be­tween th­ese two bed­rooms, while a laun­dry is also nearby.

On the lower level, ac­cessed by an in­ter­nal tim­ber stair­case near the main en­try, is a tem­per­a­ture-con­trolled wine cel­lar, stor­age area and en­try to the garage with se­cure side-byside park­ing for three cars.

Ad­di­tional fea­tures in­clude con­ve­nient guest park­ing at the front door, 24-hour se­cu­rity, an in­ter­com and res­i­dents’ gym.
