'Silverwells North' Heritage Charm meets 21st Century Urban Living
The grace of yesteryear is embodied in Silverwells, an important heritage landmark near the Story Bridge at Kangaroo Point, Brisbane. The impressive Silverwells street facade is only half the story though, behind the original olde-worlde residence is a superb split level contemporary home. Facing the majestic city skyline across the Brisbane river, the newer residence features a riverside pool terrace, luxurious interior finishes and a huge basement garage.
Silverwells was constructed around 1865, making it possibly the most historic building in Kangaroo Point. A security gate leads into the front garden where classical European styling features formal hedges, manicured lawns and specimen trees. The home's Georgian design, with its arched windows, French doors and four-metre high ceilings, offers a gracious and unique venue for large-scale entertaining and elegant guest accommodation. The front parlour, formal dining room and main guest bedroom all include open fireplaces. There is a powder room off the living areas, while the two bedrooms on the upper level share a large open plan bathroom and separate toilet, each with parquetry marble flooring and designer fittings. The original servants' quarters, separated from the house by a delightful atrium garden, has been converted into a bedroom suite with private bathroom. Throughout, heritage features such as crystal ball chandeliers, Kauri Pine floorboards and carved fanlights above French doors have been preserved.
Contemporary luxury is the theme of the Silverwells North riverside extension. Featuring European Oak floors and walls of tinted glass to capture breathtaking views, the elevated living and kitchen wing invites sophisticated entertaining. The linear lounge area, with integrated gas fire, opens to a huge pool terrace set against a backdrop of city skyline that is spectacular by day and magical by night. The terrace includes a built-in bbq kitchen, an undercover al fresco dining area and the large inviting pool tiled in shimmering glass mosaics. Downstairs, the master suite is a private haven of luxury, opening to a leafy courtyard garden and incorporating a modern marble-finished ensuite and walk in wardrobe.
