FIT FOR A KING

The Courier-Mail - Property - - Front Page - Krys­tal Hansen

Dis­cover the lux­ury of this sprawl­ing es­tate on ex­clu­sive King Arthur Ter­race. A fu­sion of east­ern and western in­flu­ences, it sits on the banks of the

Bris­bane River at Ten­nyson.

CLAS­SIC el­e­gance with an east­ern de­sign in­flu­ence cre­ates a mood of glam­our in this two-level home in Ten­nyson.

Built 20 years ago by the cur­rent own­ers, the prop­erty en­joys river views on a 22.5-me­tre wide block on one of Bris­bane’s most pres­ti­gious streets.

With east­ern in­flu­ences through­out, from the solid Teak col­umns from In­dia, six artis­tic wa­ter fea­tures and dec­o­ra­tive doors, to the stun­ning tim­ber high­lights in ev­ery room.

The ex­te­rior ar­eas of the prop­erty are tiled with sand­stone, in­clud­ing the en­ter­tain­ing ter­race and drive­way, which leads to a dou­ble lock­able garage and grand sand­stone and iron en­trance.

Adorn­ing the en­try is a wrought iron door con­structed by artist Steve Weiss. The balustrade of the tim­ber stair­case and other wrought iron touches were also cre­ated by Mr Weiss, mak­ing the prop­erty one of a kind.

The liv­ing ar­eas, kitchen and en­try have Kil­larny Ash par­quetry floor­ing and a hid­den tim­ber bar adds a touch of class to the for­mal liv­ing room.

The kitchen is fit­ted out with stain­less steel Gagge­nau ap­pli­ances, tim­ber cupboards and gran­ite bench­tops. There is also a built-in stove top and grill.

A mir­rored geo­met­ric fea­ture wall cap­tures the at­ten­tion in the main bed­room suite, which is ad­joined to an en­suite with floor to ceil­ing mar­ble, a spa bath, and a spa­cious walk-in wardrobe and dress­ing room.

The suite also fea­tures a par­ent’s re­treat and a pop up plasma tele­vi­sion screen that can be swiv­elled to face the bed, or couch area of the room. A pri­vate bal­cony ser­vices the suite and over­looks the pool and Bris­bane River.

Crys­tal chan­de­liers in the dress­ing room and re­treat area, and a lead­light win­dow over the spa bath are glam­orous touches.

The other two bed­rooms on the up­per level have am­ple built-in cup­board space and share ac­cess to a large bath­room with sep­a­rate shower, toi­let and bath.

On the lower level is a guest room with built-in cupboards. and an en­suite.

The out­door ar­eas are just as invit­ing as the in­te­rior with an in­ti­mate sand­stone tiled ter­race back dropped by or­nate wooden doors, lead­ing from the kitchen.

The salt­wa­ter pool, spa and pon­toon all over­look the Bris­bane River and Indooroopilly Golf Club.
