Quade Cooper’s abode at 34 Addison Avenue is a beautiful demonstration of complementary tones and exquisite design with scenic views from the rooftop terrace of the Brisbane River and city adding another dimension and charm to the property. Recently renovated, rustic harsh greys have been paired with warm timber to soften the modern edge. Graya Construction was involved in the spacious, sprawling design that allows Cooper to conveniently boast entertainment space but maintain privacy.
Geometry and texture are assets that have been utilised beautifully. Cooper is obsessed with straight lines and artful design apparently. The rich timber grain is contrasted with dictatorial pure black kitchen cupboards. This theme of shape and line is further experimented with under kitchen benches with horizontal, black brick work seducing the eye away from the seductive timber.
A monochrome master bedroom tips tradition on its head with its use of a light grey gradient. Hints of pale colour freshen the room. The marbled feature wall oozes style and confidence. Fittings of a mellow nature complement the bravery well. Cooper is a man most known for his rugby jerseys, and his closet certainly has more sneakers on display than formal shoes. Cooper’s walk-in wardrobe is organised, modern and clean.
The main bathroom is as luxurious as the ensuite, perhaps more so. Sure to impress guests, a plunge pool is a dominant feature. This means the shower is accessible from the pool, a clever touch offering ultra convenience. This functional bathroom space is given intricacy and embellishment with a wall of tessellating hexagons.
Space is one of the great drawcards to the property. With four bedrooms, three bathrooms and four car parks meaning there is plenty of room to spread out, and to house a collection of fine automobiles. With three outdoor areas for entertaining, the home makes the most of its prime riverside location. The ground floor has a resort style ambience with a sparkling 16 metre lap pool and day bed. A rooftop terrace, perfect for entertaining, offers 360 degree views of the fabulous inner city Brisbane skyline.
Other notable features include ducted airconditioning, extensive storage space, a 12 metre marina berth, security intercom and smart wired security cameras and sound system. The home also features a dedicated laundry and drying deck.
Cooper’s home is understandably infused with an aura of celebrity. As one of Queensland and Australia’s top rugby stars, Cooper is on the move to Victoria after signing with the Melbourne Rebels. His girlfriend, Laura Dundovic, is a former Miss Australia. When the house was barely a decade old, the couple decided to renovate the $1.845 million residence to more closely align with their needs. It is evident that every detail has been thought through, from the fittings to the numbers on the letter box. The renovation took more than four months to complete and is now ready for its next owner.
