Coorparoo 9 Crucis Street
Inner-City Tropical Escape
An iconic Coorparoo residence is on the market for the first time since its creation by HIA award-winning architects Project Designs Pty Ltd.
This inner-city tropical escape is a pleasure to live in, a haven for those who appreciate classic design with a focus on clean lines, fluid forms, space and light.
North-facing on an elevated corner parcel of land in the prestigious Coorparoo Heights pocket, the CBD shines brightly in view yet surrounding parkland suggests this property is a world away from the urban grind.
To complement the laidback Queensland lifestyle, lofted ceilings and a central reflection pond naturally cool and light the functional layout which is an absolute joy to reside in.
A custom-designed staircase smoothly connects all three levels while considered planning ensures a clever separation of shared living areas from the private large bedrooms.
The recently completed entertaining space includes a purpose-built walk-in climate-controlled wine cellar and cinema with a wet bar.
Cedar wood triple-garage doors hide the existence of this basement level 'after-five' option, which is as much a quiet place to watch a movie as it is a wonderful spot to share a glass of fine red.
The main Crucis Street entry is via a timber gatehouse, past an established Pandanus palm and through a soaring oversized glazed glass door.
A range of Miele appliances, a vast Calacatta marble island bench with breakfast bar, 2Pac cabinetry, butler's pantry and a built-in coffee/tea area comprise a chic contemporary kitchen.
The nearby living room is an extraordinary space with soaring ceilings, a gas fireplace, surround-sound system, electric operated floor-to-ceiling blinds and a view through the Eucalypt trees of the city.
Everyday living occurs on this mid-level which opens out to a concealed cedar-clad entertaining area with stone benches, a commercial Qasair rangehood, Beefeater barbecue and bar fridge.
An L-shaped inground saltwater pool is framed by tropical gardens and sundecks, while there is a courtyard positioned at both the front and rear of the site.
Inside, a bridge on the upper level connects the hotel-like master bedroom and ensuite to two large bedrooms serviced by a main bathroom.
In the heart of it all is this blissful sanctuary, built in balance and designed to enjoy.
