579 Lower Bowen Terrace is a property that is renowned as one of the grand statement homes in New Farm and is a true representation of that modern take on a Queensland classic. This flawless family home stands on the cusp of the CBD and has undergone extensive renovations tastefully bringing it into the 21st century. Claiming the title of the HIA Brisbane house of the year, this home was designed to pay respect to the original features, whilst providing all the comforts you expect from a home of such calibre.

Situated on a sprawling 1,012sqm block, this beautiful home commands a massive 25.1m frontage in the highly sought after River Precinct. It's prime location allows city views from the rear balcony which creates the most comfortable and private setting for the family to enjoy.

The quality of this iconic home is a reflection of the same passion the owners had when they first set out to renovate this family residence with its 598sqm of living space across two levels, it is evident that it was designed around family functionality and luxurious living in the most central suburban location.

This distinguished five bedroom home has an elegantly appointed home office and delivers not only on location and quality but also in generous proportions. It's commonly accepted that to live in a location such as this, it must be accompanied by a compromise, however, this is the one exception. It's a unique opportunity for a family to set down their roots and enjoy the next 20 years knowing there is no better alternative.

579 Lower Bowen Terrace commands a distinct presence in the Street, yet the allure extends beyond the faade and continues throughout every inch of this palatial family home. The impressive central hallway, with its chandelier centred ceilings, begins to tell a story of quality craftsmanship that has evaded most modern homes. As you progress further down the hall past the office you enter the grand living area, framed by the ornate ceiling and chandelier. The beautiful polished Ironbark timber floors lead you to an oversized kitchen which connects the dining room to the huge entertainer's deck overlooking the manicured backyard. This massive kitchen has a unique configuration with a large pantry, quality appliances and abundant storage. The distinctive Calacatta stone benchtop, island bench and ample natural light, make this such an important and enjoyable space for the family to come together.

The master suite reflects a work of art with a striking attention to detail. Located at the front of the home, it has been generously proportioned and enjoys seclusion from the rest of the home. Its divine ensuite and robe are finished to the highest standard, while the original French doors open to a large veranda that is the finishing touch to a perfect master retreat.

In keeping with its lavish offering, there is ample undercover secure parking for four cars with an array of additional storage options plus further off street parking. Also located on the lower level is a private guest suite, a work out space and an elegant second living or rumpus room which is just some of the various entertaining spaces that flow seamlessly out to the manicured gardens and alluring large family pool. It is easy to envisage how this space would take any memorable event to a new level of extravagance.

A home of this calibre is often admired, but rarely put to market. As the owners have now moved interstate, they have expressed that they would love to see this amazing property become home to another family for years to come.
