40/42 Johnston Street, Bulimba
“Remember when homes looked like this?”
It’s less a question and more of a reflection of sorts from Duke Realty director and selling agent Sam Patterson as he ventures through the front gate of this most unique property, one of Bulimba’s stunning Tribeca terrace homes.
And when pressed to elaborate on exactly what he is referring to, Sam’s answer is simple:
“Remember when the homes you visited at opens looked like they’d been lived in…and loved.”
Of course, while he’d confess to usually loving a professionally-styled property as much as the next agent, Patterson’s point here is to highlight this property is something special, his statement as much in touch with this property as it is a moment in time where our homes have now more than ever come to be understood as providing a highly personalised sanctuary and retreat.
And indeed that is exactly what you’ll find here – no property styling or hire furniture required. Immaculately maintained and lovingly decorated, this rare, street-facing, two-level terrace transcends the typical – elevating this property from simply a house to a home. From niches and nooks, to secrets and stories, a number of personalised and considered choices have allowed the evolution of a calm and peaceful abode.
Of course, the striking architectural lines and sophisticated finishes continue to impress here – with marble-clad bathrooms, rich timber flooring and quality European appliances all signature features for which this acclaimed development has come to be known. Yet, when it comes to this particular Tribeca terrace home, one is equally struck by a number of personalised touches and carefully curated upgrades which provide not just extra liveability but also enduring value.
From the wide, retractable awnings installed to provide additional protection for the main courtyard and upper balcony, to the Moroccan-inspired lantern gracing the generous outdoor patio with built-in stainless steel BBQ, outdoor living spaces have been celebrated and embraced. Reimagined landscaping has transformed a humble outdoor courtyard into a private zen garden that puts one at one with nature, including a manicured, low-maintenance lawn area embracing a northern aspect to capture cool river breezes and salute the morning sun.
Within, a highly functional floor plan incorporates three upper-level bedrooms, including a spacious master suite flowing out to a private breezy balcony, capturing a picturesque outlook over the tree-lined neighbourhood beyond. Interior spaces are both a stylistic journey and a labour of love, with crisp, white, custom shutters, panelled wardrobe doors and a hand-crafted beaded pendant light adorning the grand stairwell space adding further character and charm to this spirited home.
Situated in a corner position with only one immediate neighbour and enjoying its own separate frontage to tree-lined Banya Street, entry is facilitated courtesy of your own private front pedestrian gate. With the Oxford Street restaurant and retail precinct and nearby Apollo Rd city cat services just moments from your doorstep, this inspired development allows residents to strike the ideal balance between community and connection and privacy and retreat – a place where you can be at once both within and without.
Returning to market due to a change in the owner’s circumstances , these highly coveted D-type townhomes have been tightly held. As such, this stunning terrace home offers a rare opportunity to elevate your lifestyle while simultaneously enjoying the quietude and refuge this beautiful pocket of Bulimba provides. Embodying more than just style and sophistication, this is a residence that also has soul. So, if you are seeking to make your home an extension of your mindset and existence, call Sam Patterson today to help find your zen at this stunning Tribeca terrace home.
