A Sunshine Coast couple have secured the final penthouse in the first building of Brookfield Residential Properties’ luxury Gallery House project on the Hamilton riverfront.
Andrew and Collette Mitrega undertook significant research before deciding to purchase the four-bedroom penthouse with stunning river and city views.
“We visited just about, if not every, new-build apartment project in Brisbane before purchasing at Gallery House,” said Mr Mitrega.
“It was all about the location and the opportunity of being able to see the city skyline, but not having to live in the CBD – it felt like the right choice to us.
“We did extensive due diligence, reviewing and researching all Brisbane developers, which gave us the confidence we needed to purchase an apartment developed by Brookfield Residential Properties’ and built by Multiplex.”
The 216sqm, four-bedroom penthouse features natural stone tiles, a spacious butler’s pantry, wine cabinet, freestanding bath, Miele appliances and amazing river and city views.
Mr Mitrega said the Gallery House penthouse gave them everything they needed in terms of space, location and amenity.
“Our new penthouse provides us with several bedrooms and one of the biggest balconies we have ever seen, so friends and family can be accommodated when they visit,” he said.
“When we decided to transition to apartment living, we thought ‘let’s make it easy and surround ourselves with convenience’.
“From Gallery House, in just two minutes we could be watching a movie, eating at numerous restaurants, enjoying Eat Street Markets or picking up a bottle of wine.
“Then there’s the added convenience of no maintenance. I’m looking forward to disposing of my lawnmower, ladder and pool vacuum, and having the luxury of locking the door and going away for several weeks without the worry.”
Mr Mitrega said an unexpected bonus of Gallery House was the neighbourhood feel.
“We have already met and spoken with several of our prospective neighbours and they all want to be part of a social network within the project.” he said.
Brookfield Residential Properties’ Managing Director Lee Butterworth said while all penthouses in the first building were sold, some remained in Gallery House Two for those looking for the ultimate in luxury living.
“Gallery House will become an address synonymous with style and luxury and its residents will enjoy an enviable riverfront lifestyle with everything at their fingertips,” he said.
“Our buyers have been predominately locals looking for waterfront property without the maintenance, who know the benefits of living in this location with its direct access to retail, restaurants, recreation and green spaces.
“The three and four-bedroom apartments and penthouses in Gallery House are bigger than many homes, so buyers don’t feel like they are compromising on space.
“Instead, they are upgrading to a brand new apartment with all the modern luxuries and lifestyle amenities at their doorstep.”
Sales in Gallery House have reached $224 million and construction is just weeks from completion on the first building.
Gallery House Two is also under construction with completion anticipated for the end of this year (2019).
The first onsite displays will open at Gallery House mid August, showcasing views of the Brisbane River and across the city skyline.
Gallery House is located six kilometres from the CBD with easy access to the CityCat, airports and major arterial roads.
Gallery House has a mix of two and three bedroom apartments, ‘sky homes’ and penthouses for sale ranging from $575,000 to $2.795 million.
