Unique de­sign with stun­ning city views

The Courier-Mail - Property - - NEWS - SO­PHIE FOSTER

IT’S the ul­ti­mate en­ter­tain­ing spot, high on a hill, look­ing out to­wards the twin­kling lights of in­ner Bris­bane, but this As­cot prop­erty has so much more to of­fer.

Made up of one part stun­ningly re­stored Queens­lan­der and one part lux­ury multi-level moder­nity, this 166 Crosby Rd prop­erty in blue chip As­cot makes the most of ev­ery as­pect of its block.

Owner Lin­dell McVey said she’s sad to say good­bye as it had been an amaz­ing house.

She is selling the prop­erty fol­low­ing her re­cent move to Dubai where she is now liv­ing at Kite Beach with her fiance.

“I pur­chased the house in 2000 to move closer to my daugh­ter’s school. The orig­i­nal home was per­fect for teenage chil­dren and I fell in love with the mag­nif­i­cent views and fam­ily-friendly As­cot com­mu­nity,” Ms McVey said.

“We un­der­took ex­ten­sive ren­o­va­tions in 2010 to bet­ter utilise the slop­ing block and cre­ated the ter­raced gar­dens. I orig­i­nally en­vis­aged a Ba­li­nese-style hut but to truly cap­i­talise on the stun­ning views a small hut turned into the three-storey pav­il­ion and what is now a trop­i­cal oa­sis with a re­sort feel in the heart of Bris­bane.” Mar­ket­ing agent Domenico Bellino of North South Real Es­tate said it was the first time he’d seen any­thing like the 893sq m es­tate-like res­i­dence for sale in Bris­bane.

“This prop­erty sim­ply has to be seen to be be­lieved,” he said.

It blends old and new, with dou­ble multi-level build­ings spread­ing liv­ing and ac­com­mo­da­tion zones.

“The orig­i­nal Queens­lan­der at the front of the prop­erty forms the main home and flows on to ter­raced gar­dens, link­ing to a con­tem­po­rary three storey pav­il­ion de­signed to ac­com­mo­date guests, a home busi­ness or the ul­ti­mate en­ter­tain­ment area,” he said.

The rear of the prop­erty has a stun­ning three-storey pav­il­ion en­ter­tain­ing and guest pav­il­ion.

“The first level of the pav­il­ion boasts a theatre, stu­dio and sleep­ing ac­com­mo­da­tion while the sec­ond level of­fers a liv­ing area with gas fire­place, bath and pow­der rooms, the prop­erty’s sec­ond fully-equipped kitchen and a bal­cony with stun­ning city views and dou­ble bar­be­cue,” he said. “The pav­il­ion’s third level is ac­cessed by a spi­ral tim­ber stair­case which opens to a vast rooftop ter­race that takes in breath­tak­ing views over the home and gar­den, across the sub­urbs and stretch­ing out to a never to be built out view of Bris­bane city and be­yond.”

The re­ju­ve­nated Queens­lan­der at the front has a top level that con­tains a lav­ish adults’ re­treat with a walk-in wardrobe, en­suite with rain shower, as well as a sec­ond bed­room, the prop­erty’s main kitchen and large open-plan liv­ing and din­ing area, which opens up to a rear deck with city views.
