This iconic address commands its reputation as one of Brisbane’s very best and this home has the grand scale to match it.

Spanning four floors and capturing breathtaking views of the Brisbane city skyline, this Hawthorne abode sits on an expansive 2,110 sqm of space with 27 m of river frontage that comes with a private pontoon.

Clem Jones, the former Lord Mayor of Brisbane, was the original owner of this stunning property before the world-class home was designed by a commercial architecture team of leading architects and interior designers when purchased in 1985 by billionaire James Penny.

The home’s new long-term owner has just finished a two-year, multi-million-dollar restoration, resulting in what is perhaps the most stunning contemporary property along the riverfront.

The house, which retains its landmark architectural style of playful curvature and monochromatic colours preserved what is the focal point of the home, the classic arched dome over the main bedroom that feels like it keeps a watchful eye over the property.

“What you can never get again is the height of that home, I don’t know how they got approval, but they did back in the mid-80s,” Ray White Ascot selling principal Dwight Ferguson said.

“It has a roof terrace which brings in the views further than any of the others in the area. So it does take in an extra level and the views go to Hamilton Hill and beyond.”

A full-size tennis court, riverside pool area with its own white sandy beach, fire pit, and self-contained cabana, as well as an expansive rooftop terrace and lounge, are all part of the home’s 6-star resort-inspired lifestyle that offer unparalleled entertainment options.

Mr Ferguson said the size of this property was quite rare for the area, and that listings like this don’t come up often.

“It has a mooring off the pontoon that will again never be replicated you can get up to a 70ft boat out the back there and beyond and your general boats of the pontoon itself,” he said.

The home comes with all the luxury touches, appliances and finishes to be expected with such a luxurious abode.

Brushed European Limestone floors stretch from the interior to the alfresco areas, providing an opulent yet natural look and a splendid kitchen with 80 mm stone benchtops and the complete entertainer’s suite of Miele appliances is complemented by cutting-edge home technology.

Despite the multiple levels, the home’s design does a sensational job of retaining a sense of flow and connectivity from room to room in order to preserve a natural consonance.

The home is dotted with grand open living spaces on the entry-level that are surrounded by floor-to-ceiling glass, which help to create a sense of harmony between the interior and exterior.

A dedicated game and gaming zone on the lower level includes a home gym, library, room for a billiard table, and a stunning wine tasting area. A second first-floor pavilion overlooking the tennis court has a full kitchen, making it ideal for entertaining.

All five bedrooms are on the upper floor have been thoughtfully divided into three individual wings to create a supremely private master retreat and to accommodate families of either age or dynamic.
