135 Highwood Road, THE GAP
Opulence in the Rainforest by Selling Houses Australia
135 Highwood Road is a truly majestic family home, with nothing else like it available in Brisbane. Nestled at the bottom of a sealed driveway, flanked by towering gum trees and set against the gorgeous backdrop of Mt Coot-tha, it rises grandly from its own private valley and offers both wide vistas and serene seclusion. Now, stunningly renovated by the Selling Houses Australia design team, this home represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to grab a slice of iconic Brisbane-rainforest land in a home with the features and details of a resort lifestyle. You’ll be living only 20 minutes to the city and 30 mintues to the airport – what more could you ask for?
Selling Houses Australia have worked its magic and this two-storey home has a luxurious opulence evident from the moment you drive through the automatic front gates. The front gardens are meticulously manicured with a mature, majestic palm tree set in the middle of the showcase circular driveway. Enter the home via the double staircase and you will find yourself stunned by the beauty and attention to detail. Wainscoting, architectural archways, heritage-style mouldings and architraves and vintage light switches are highlighted by fresh white and on-trend designer touches throughout, giving you a home that is both beautifully rendered and an absolute pleasure to explore.
The front sitting and dining rooms open up to the long front verandah but are given privacy by state-of-the-art Luxaflex remote blinds, which are both convenient and beautiful. The modern features extend to silent, remote-controlled fans in the living areas, master bedroom and the back verandah as well. The front, formal living areas lead onto the main family area, which includes a beautifully renovated kitchen and butler’s pantry done in modern tones of white and dark blue, with stunning stone tops and a vast marble middle bench for a family that loves to cook and dine communally. The open plan area also features plenty of space for a large, family dining table and a family living space for relaxing and enjoying time together. Each of these areas has its own unique light feature, selected by Selling Houses Australia’s Shaynna Blaze, which include modern takes on the medieval candelabra and a stunning palm-leaved chandelier.
The front living space leads onto a unique curved verandah which overlooks the Balinese infinity pool complex and vistas of Mt Coot-tha. The perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee, regardless of the weather. Don’t miss the master bedroom on the top level as well, which will entice you with its luxe bathroom featuring a double shower, a deep white bath and gunmetal grey taps and an immense dressing room. More tones of dark blue and crisp white create a calm, peaceful space, and with its own private verandah, you may never want to leave. There’s a guest bedroom on this floor with an ensuite/guest bathroom and toilet as well.
Downstairs boasts another family living space, a media room, two toilets and a bathroom and three more bedrooms along with copious storage. This fully tiled area is perfect for the indoor-outdoor life, as bifold doors open onto the back patio area and pool complex. The pool complex will make you believe you have taken a Balinese holiday with its sandstone pavers and beautiful timber pathways and bridge that takes you above the pool and over to your very own thatched bungalow. The perfect place entertaining space to while away a long afternoon with friends. A palapa-style swim up bar and full tennis court complete the resort ambience.
This is the perfect family home for those who are looking for a luxe lifestyle, in a 10-acre rainforest setting, and refuse to compromise on style or quality.
