Plush sanc­tu­ary above river


LO­CATED in one of the Wool­stores build­ings and en­joy­ing pic­turesque views of Bris­bane River, this stylish apart­ment oc­cu­pies a top floor po­si­tion in the Car­son­Winch­combe build­ing.

Ex­posed brick­work, tim­ber floors, tim­ber shut­ters, high ceil­ings, banks of win­dows near the ceil­ing and dec­o­ra­tive sup­ports fea­ture promi­nently in the main liv­ing and din­ing space

Own­ers Kurt Crowther and Rosco Good­worth said the high­light of the prop­erty for them was the lux­u­ri­ous com­bi­na­tion of space and light, de­scrib­ing the apart­ment as “a true sanc­tu­ary where we can re­lax and un­wind from our busy lives”.

Mr Crowther and Mr Good­worth said be­cause of the ori­en­ta­tion of the apart­ment and the win­dows they had a panoramic view of the Bris­bane River, which changed through­out the day and had a tran­quil calm­ing ef­fect, act­ing as a panacea for their hec­tic days.

They also praised the apart­ment’s unique abil­ity to pro­vide pri­vacy along­side con­nec­tion and in­ter­ac­tion with the Tener­iffe com­mu­nity at the same time.

The main en­trance opens to a foyer, with a short hall lead­ing straight head past the main bed­room to the spa­cious open-plan liv­ing, din­ing and kitchen area.

The dou­ble-hung win­dows at the far end are com­ple­mented by tim­ber shut­ters, with views across to the river.

There is an is­land bench in the kitchen, fin­ished with tim­ber and fea­tur­ing a built-in wine rack, while stain­less steel ap­pli­ances also equip the cook­ing space.

To the left of the main hall­way is the car­peted main bed­room, with frosted lou­vre win­dows look­ing to the liv­ing and din­ing space.

A walk-in wardrobe and an en­suite service the main bed­room, while the two other bed­rooms are at the front of the apart­ment, to the left of the en­trance foyer.

Both bed­rooms have built-in wardrobes, along with ac­cess to the level’s main bath­room, a pow­der room, stor­age room and the laun­dry.

List­ing agent Si­mon Caulfield said an­other ap­peal for the own­ers was the high ceil­ings.

“The ceil­ings are 18-20ft high,” he said.

“The saw­tooth edge is quite pop­u­lar; on this level it al­lows you to put a mez­za­nine in if you want to.”

He said the apart­ment, at 4-5m wide, was wider than many oth­ers in the Wool­stores, es­pe­cially the spa­cious main liv­ing area

“The own­ers have al­ways loved the liv­ing and din­ing space be­cause it al­lows them to en­ter­tain so eas­ily,” Mr Caulfield said.

“From an agent’s per­spec­tive, one of the most saleable fea­tures of the prop­erty is the fact it in­cludes very prac­ti­cal dou­ble side-by­side car spa­ces — one of only five in the com­plex with this fea­ture and a must for pro­fes­sional cou­ples on dif­fer­ent sched­ules with two cars.”

Im­por­tantly, Mr Caulfield said the apart­ment’s views were pro­tected, as the build­ing across the road was her­itage listed, fur­ther adding to the ap­peal of the prop­erty.
