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.
