Perched on the cliffs at Kangaroo Point, 1 Leopard Street has been designed with the intention of capturing and celebrating the magnificent view.

Sprawling across an 1184 square metre allotment, the commanding three-storey residence has been immaculately designed by architect Greg Harris with a luxury befitting the magnificent setting. “Everything we did was about trying to take advantage of the aspect,” Harris says. “It is a site that has one of the most remarkable views of Brisbane city.” An impressive 71.7 metres of uninterrupted direct city and river views are visible from the property, with every room a vantage point.

The home has five generously sized bedrooms, three of which are on the third floor with their own walk-in robes and ensuites. Not to be overshadowed, the master suite has an extra layer of elegance and grandeur.

Walled by glass, the view envelopes the bedroom. The ensuite, basked in Calcatta marble, flows seamlessly from the sleeping quarters. Lavish his and hers walk-in robes, and a spacious dressing room complete this extravagant space.

Building on the idea of privacy and subtle separation, the split-level construction comprises a number of living and recreational rooms perfectly positioned. Throughout, the view remains the hero of the design; the focal point from every room. The property has several formal and informal entertaining and catering areas suitable for intimate family gatherings or larger, grander occasions. The kitchen is fully equipped with the latest appliances, high end materials and its own scullery. Underfoot, the living and entertaining areas have Saint Lorraine marble flooring imported from Greece.

Luxury and decadence flow from inside to out, with the outdoor entertaining finished to the same premium level as the interior. A self-contained, airconditioned barbecue area, with Teppanyaki grill and woodfired pizza oven is a delight for culinary enthusiasts.[

Designed for year-round functionality, the area is enclosed in bi-fold glass, maximising comfort and providing 280 degree vistas. An infinity lap pool and spa run the length of the cliff edge appearing to spill into the river below. The lower level of the property houses a beautifully crafted, temperature controlled wine cellar finished in white birch and leather detailing. Of course, the cellar commands a view of the city, and a glass window in the pool frames the Story Bridge.

Located in the eastern wing is the home office with adjoining board room. Deliberately separated from the main residence, the design ensures privacy as well as the segregation of home and work life. The office is serviced by its own kitchenette, second office space and separate barbecue and outdoor dining area. Additionally, the space includes a fully equipped home gym and steam room and a fifth bedroom.
Extra luxuries ensure this property oozes indulgence. All three levels are serviced by an interior lift, and underfloor heating can be found throughout the living and entertaining areas. There is also a soundproof cinema with surround sound and big screen projector, and six-car garage with direct access to the property.
