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.
