This residence is an absolute triumph of design and liveability. Occupying a prime position in one of the most sought after streets in Brisbane, 4 Beeston Street is an immaculate home that will leave a lasting impression of lifestyle and comfort. Paying homage to timeless architecture and modern design, this striking contemporary conversion presents itself as a house that sits at the forefront of ultra-modern living.

While the front of the house retains its charm with a full-width verandah and other architectural nods to the original 1930's worker's cottage on the site, the interior and rear extension speak a contemporary language of volume, space and unique lines thanks to the brilliant design of multi-award winning architect Shaun Lockyer. This residence not surprisingly featured in Brisbane's top 10 houses in 2013 as judged by the architectural editors of Brisbane News. The architect's intricate attention to detail has ensured that every square inch of this home has been designed to maximise comfort, privacy and security and to also capitalise on it's elevated position and stunning city views. This spectacular triumph of residential architecture is unrivalled in the current market place and offers an ideal low maintenance luxurious innercity lifestyle. Being within a heartbeat of the James Street precinct and CBD the tranquillity and utter privacy of this residence is both surprising and rare.

What is apparent as you make your way through the security controlled front gate and up to the teak framed entry with floor to ceiling glass, is that you are somewhere truly special. The outstanding design and use of the very best materials is immediately obvious as you pass through the front entry. The Mafi floors imported from Scandinavia, the long stone bench tops in the kitchen, the wire brushed Brazilian slate in the pool area and bathrooms, the European appliances, the travertine tiling, the sudden unexpected appearance of volume and space all combine to stimulate a sense of comfort and opulence. You are immediately aware that this is open plan living in its finest form. Direct line of sight for over 35 meters from the front verandah to the pool area at the rear together with beautiful intervening light corridors and soaring cathedral ceilings contribute to this delightful experience.

The high end standard of living continues throughout the home as the large in-ground pool and entertainment area flows seamlessly through the kitchen and living area out onto the picturesque front deck with spectacular views of the Storey Bridge and city skyline. The extensive use of Pacific Teak timber in the barbeque and pool area gives the exterior a sense of depth and texture.

The master suite on the upper level affords the perfect retreat for any owner. From the beautiful cabinetry, use of voids and utilisation of stone and floor to ceiling tiles in the ultra- modern bathroom, this master sets the standard in opulence and relaxation. The master opens out into a second expansive living area and office space with a large hydraulic window affording unrivalled views of the CBD cityscape. This area could easily be converted into a fourth bedroom and office.

Beneath the home is a double garage with additional storage space and a wine cellar.
