Best apartment in the southern hemisphere

The best apartment on the market in Brisbane, if not Australia, is this Riparian Plaza Penthouse.

I’m the first to admit we tend to throw around big words in real estate – ‘unique’, ‘sensational’, ‘stunning’, ‘sensational’ – yet ‘ultimate’ truly does fit the bill for this quarter-of-an-acre sanctuary in the sky.

Offering all-encompassing views across the city and Brisbane River to the Great Dividing Range, Glasshouse Mountains, Moreton Bay and Pacific Ocean, this Harry Seidler-designed residence is on the market for the first time in 18 years.

It was Mr Seidler himself who called it the “best apartment in the southern hemisphere”.

Five ensuited bedrooms, seven bathrooms, eight side-by-side car spaces, theatre, six-metre diameter private swimming pool with umbrellas wired for sound, full wet bar with beer on tap, games room, Gaggenau kitchen, two cold rooms, 700-bottle wine cellar…the list goes on.

Guests to have stepped foot inside include renowned sporting personalities and teams such as Rod Laver, Roy Emerson, Sir Garfield Sobers, Aussie Test cricketers, Sheffield Shield players and members of the Brisbane Lions.

Being tasked with selling this exceptional property is a privilege and honour, one which I don’t take lightly.

I hope you enjoyed the read.
