This twin-floor luxury home is the penthouse to rule them all

THE two-storey penthouse of one of the most exclusive buildings in Queensland has hit the market, and it even has its own pool looking over the city.

The luxury 445 sqm home is spread across two floors in Brisbane City’s highly exclusive Macrossan Residences — a building where every level, from the sixth floor to the 34th, contained a single apartment.

The penthouse has 270 degree views across the Brisbane River and the city, with six metre ceilings and walls of glass, as well as its own pool on an open air balcony, a large entertainment space, an office and guest quarters.

It also has over $50,000 worth of remote blinds, CBUS intelligent lighting, two large storage areas, a temperature controlled wine cellar and, importantly for the CBD area, four designated car spaces.

It’s only ever been owned by Brisbane businessman Peter Kardash, a man who survived 18 years in the video hire industry to bounce back making millions as a Telstra licensee. Mr Kardash has already left the building, retiring to Noosa.

Agent Ben White of Place New Farm was blown away when he got his first look at the sky home at 3401/483 Adelaide Street Brisbane City.

“It is the best penthouse in the market. I’ve been working in that area for 20 years and this one really does stand out,” he said.

“The plan is really intelligent. There’s really appropriate segregation of spaces, the double height ceiling and glass really springs the view into the area.

“Sometimes as a compromise for high end buyers, they have to buy into very dense buildings but in the Macrossan Residences from level 6 to 34 they’re all whole floor apartments. It’s very exclusive.”

The property is open for a half-hour inspection from 5:30pm on Tuesday and 11am on Saturday, and has been set to go to auction on Thursday September 27 at 6pm unless sold prior.

“The owner’s instructed me to entertain offers beforehand,” Mr White said.

“This is truly an unrepeatable opportunity, providing security, innovation and the very best lifestyle options Brisbane has to offer right at your door.”
