703/109 Commercial Road, Teneriffe
Henry Poole, creator of the dinner jacket and master of the art of sartorial elegance was a legendary tailor and credited founder of London’s famed Savile Row. Yet it is somewhat surprising to find that his legacy might also be considered alive and well here, in Brisbane’s historic Teneriffe neighbourhood, most notably at Fabric – a stunning new development which brings to life a philosophy of tailored living and bespoke design.
A CUT ABOVE
Just one in a series of apartments crafted and created with a host of stylish features, Fabric is a building immaculately tailored to suit its surroundings, comprising smartly designed residences which interweave luxe materials with timeless elegance, made to measure with discerning owners in mind. Apartment 703 is certainly no exception, with it immediately becoming clear upon entering that this 7th floor, city view residence is cut from an entirely different cloth to so many of its inner-city apartment neighbours – a 54sqm one-bedroom abode developed with an appreciation that considered design, quality materials and impeccable detailing never go out of style.
Embracing a refined, contemporary and tailored aesthetic, this apartment is big on style and rich in its detailing, with dark timbergrain cabinetry interwoven with luxe and lustrous finishes including brushed brass shadowlines, metal framing and industrial accents in the form of fittings and tapware, harking back to Teneriffe’s early history and heritage.
But, perhaps the most distinguishing feature of this stylish abode comes by virtue of its million dollar views at a far more accessible pricepoint, an attraction not lost on Duke Realty sales agents Sam Patterson and Jason Chave. In fact, Sam acknowledges “It’s rare to find a near-new apartment with these kind of city views at such an affordable pricepoint”, Jason adding, “Not to mention this is in a suburb recently named in Queensland’s top 2 for prestige prices.” Indeed, both agents confirm what has long been held as truth when it comes to property purchases – that location, elevation, vantage point and value for money are always on trend.
The apartment’s angular floorplate provides intrigue and interest, with both the living and master bedroom embracing broad expanses of glass opening to views of a near-touchable city as well as to the South facing, sweeping up the leafy, cottage-dotted Teneriffe hill. A shaded balcony offers a natural breakout space and vantage point from which to soak up the local atmosphere, an extension of your calm and collected inner urban retreat.
From here, progressing from the open-plan living area and compact dining zone, a stretch full-height cabinets introduces a neat and tucked-away kitchen appointed with a full suite of stainless steel appliances including wall oven, gas cooktop, concealed rangehood and semi-integrated dishwasher, while generous storage and quality stone benchtops perfectly balance functionality and form.
A bright and airy, oversized master bedroom with full wall of mirrored robe space is positioned conveniently alongside a well-appointed bathroom featuring vanity with mirror cabinet and open shelving as well as a large shower space with rainshower and industrial inspired tapware and bathroom hardware. These industrial accents, together with the large sliding barn door which provides welcome separation between the master bed and entertaining zones reference design elements characteristic of Teneriffe’s heritage as the centre of Queensland’s wool trade, adding character and charm to the urban luxe design features of this contemporary abode.
Architecturally, the building itself is a strong and considered style statement, the bold, curved angles of its form tailored precisely to hug the shoulder of Florence Street and bustling Commercial Road. A metallic, screened façade offers flashes of brilliance and beauty befitting Fabric’s design-conscious neighbourhood, a bespoke creation that establishes the building as a design icon in its own right, capable of sitting confidently alongside Teneriffe’s historic red-brick Woolstores and refashioned and repurposed industrial premises that gives the suburb its own unique profile.
FACILITIES & ADDITIONAL FEATURES
With additional features including ducted air-conditioning, video intercom and a single car space in Fabric’s secure lock up garage, access is granted via an integrated remote control and security fob which also allow you to ascend to your Level 7 residence via the 8-storey building’s dual lifts. Amenity-rich, Fabric’s shared facilities and lifestyle offering are also a cut-above, with a roof-top sky deck incorporating crystalline pool, multiple private cabanas and dedicated BBQ and furnished lounging areas, all with views of the beautiful cityscape which materialises before your eyes. Downstairs, a Woolworths Metro as well as a range of boutique food providers and service offerings line Fabric’s lower level, a carefully tailored offering designed to guarantee residents convenience and ease.
LOCATION & LIFESTYLE
Of course, it’s certainly no secret that the leafy, inner-city suburb of Teneriffe has long attracted the creative and entrepreneurial to enjoy life in this riverside suburb, inspired by its cool, urban aesthetic and unique, eclectic style. Yet, more than just a fashionable address, you’ll love living at the heart of a vibrant and social neighbourhood, with artisan trades, craft breweries, an eclectic culinary culture and niche service offerings all sewn into the social fabric of the area, offering a lively experience interwoven with a close-knit village community feel. Brisbane’s silken river and its bustling walking path and bikeway also threads its way through this historic neighbourhood, providing opportunities for regular exercise and a central location from which to host the area’s famed Teneriffe Festival, while positioning you just minutes from the city and New Farm’s restaurant and designer fashion strip James Street should you wish to venture further afield.
