A property that surpasses mere luxury, one above all comparison, Balaam is Brisbane's must-see home of 2015. Situated in Hamilton - the city's premier suburb - this exquisite location is ideally positioned on the banks of pristine riverfront. The home itself, immaculately designed, is the work of renowned architect Shaun Lockyer, and showcases unparalleled opulence with limitless potential. This prized parcel of real estate is a market gem and won't last long. Offering every amenity a home-owner could possibly desire and with every opportunity an investor would aspire to, come discover Balaam before it is spirited away forever.
Balaam has been meticulously built and meets the very highest of standards. Receiving countless accolades from both the architecture and construction industry since its completion in 2007, it was built by highly regarded firm Hutchinson Builders. Designed to occupy a commanding position among the state's premium riverfront precincts, the home sits proudly along a stunning 48.3m stretch of the Brisbane River and offers incomparable views of the water and CBD. As one of only two riverfront houses in all of Hamilton, Balaam is a truly rare and superior property.
A commanding three-storey masterpiece, Balaam offers over 1,034sqm of living space elegantly set on a 1,609sqm allotment. Constructed as part of an extraordinary brief to build the finest family home in Brisbane, the palatial residence comes with every conceivable luxury and consideration imaginable. This includes eight oversized bedrooms - each with their own designer ensuites; living areas and recreational rooms liberally spread throughout; and split level construction offering privacy and subtle separation.
With a level of opulence rarely reached in the Brisbane market, the home also boasts a spectacular modern kitchen. Fully equipped with the finest materials, appliances and its own scullery, it allows easy accommodation for large functions, entertaining or decadent intimate gatherings. Other highlights include a climate-controlled wine cellar, fully equipped gym with its own shower and sauna, a home office, multiple study spaces, a parent's retreat with his-and-her ensuites, six outdoor terraces, a fire pit, two gardens, a cantilevered heated swimming pool and spa complete with outdoor bar, a second significant lap pool, a children's play area, a children's creche, an architecturally designed cubby house and an animal enclosure.
Sparing no expense, the home is also fully automated and includes a state of the art security system, blinds and screens, and an internal lift. Meanwhile architectural details throughout the home exude luxury, from expert craftsmanship in flooring, built-in features, tiling patterns, light fittings and even bespoke door handles.
Perhaps the greatest value to note when considering this stunning home is not the site itself, but the sky's-the-limit potential it presents for development. Like thinking big? This incredibly located property has been approved for development for a ten-storey luxury waterfront apartment complex, or alternatively, a three-lot waterfront subdivision incorporating the existing house. Whichever way you slice it, the beauty and versatility of this property makes Balaam a once in a lifetime offering.
