A discrete security-gated driveway landscaped with subtle water features leads to the porte-cochre entry of 74 Jilba Street – an extraordinarily large riverfront property (2937m2) and residence of immense proportion (981m2 internal area). Architecturally designed and constructed with meticulous attention to quality, detail, luxury, and privacy, 74 Jilba Street integrates seamlessly into the natural beauty of its flood free riverfront location.
Upon entry, an expansive light filled atrium with soaring ceilings showcases architectural and design excellence, incorporating elements of natural stone, spotted gum floorboards and New Guinea Rosewood joinery bi-fold glass doors and windows. Multiple living and dining areas flow to expansive entertaining balconies that enjoy north easterly breezes, with panoramic views that stretch down two stretches of the Brisbane River.
Directly below the central living area is secure undercover garaging for 12 vehicles, dedicated turning space and vehicle washing service bay.
The impressive gourmet kitchen has been designed as an integral hub for family life with wide functional stone bench-tops. A pantry leads to the cold room, (also with direct servery access), and large feature windows welcome sunlight and picturesque garden views into the kitchen.
The luxurious Master Retreat is sized to enhance the grand proportions of the residence, with large walk in robe, dressing area and en-suite, fireplace and private riverfront balcony. Also, located on this entrance level is a large guest suite with en-suite, office with custom joinery, extraordinarily large laundry and powder room. The upper gallery level is dedicated to three additional king sized en-suited bedrooms (all with river views and balconies), linen storage, laundry chute and gallery walkway.
