Scenic views set standard
A SIXTH floor apartment in the tower block of Brisbane’s iconic Torbreck complex, this property boasts unobstructed city, river and mountain views.
Offering 113sq m of indoor space and 13sq m of external space, the apartment’s front door opens onto a central hallway that leads to two bedrooms on the left, both with built-in wardrobes.
The larger of the two bedrooms also features a balcony, one of three balconies that form part of the design, accessed through sliding glass doors.
Opposite the bedrooms is a galley-style kitchen with laminate benchtops, white cabinetry, plenty of storage and a servery window through to the adjacent dining room.
At the end of the hall, open plan living and dining areas both offer breathtaking views and separate balconies accessed through sliding glass doors.
Just inside the front door is a built-in storage cupboard and next to that, through a cavity sliding door, is a laundry that opens onto a separate toilet on one side and a main bathroom with basin and shower on the other side.
Offered for sale for the first time in 55 years, the apartment features curtains on windows and doors, carpet in the bedrooms and living areas, vinyl flooring in the kitchen and a neutral paint scheme.
Additional features of the property include a secure garage space in the basement, access to the complex swimming pool, intercom security, lift access and on-site management.
The first multi unit development of its kind built in Queensland, Torbreck was designed in 1957 by architects Aubrey Job and Robert Froud and was completed in 1961. It takes its name from a gabled timber cottage it replaced.
Torbreck comprises an eightstoreyed garden block and the 14 storeyed tower block.
Located 2km from Brisbane city, Torbreck is also close to West End’s shops and restaurants and South Bank Parklands and cultural precinct.
