Unrivalled courtyard apartment on Brisbane’s coveted riverfront

For Sale by Expressions of Interest, closing Saturday 9 December, 5pm (if not Sold prior)

An exceptional acquisition opportunity within Brisbane’s iconic, resort-inspired ‘The River Gallery Apartments’ development, this luxuriously appointed ground-floor residence grants exclusivity, prestige and paramount security, and presents a level of liveability that is beyond compare.

With substantial dimensions, superior inclusions, premium finishes and a beautiful flow, this refined property is one to retain for your future. Held by the current, longstanding owner for 20 years, be assured that the chance to secure a river-facing residence and accompanying lifestyle of this calibre comes along only once in a lifetime.

This quiet, desirably positioned, end-of-building apartment within the Drysdale building, named after Australian artist Sir George Russell Drysdale AC, delivers light-filled, generous interiors rich with timber, granite and marble details. Voluminous living areas extend outward to a meticulously manicured garden courtyard that has the city skyline as a backdrop and direct, gated access to the Brisbane Riverwalk.

With this eye-catching landmark conveniently on your doorstep, you can walk or cycle into the city’s heart, head to Howard Smith Wharves for anytime-of-day dining and enjoy a brisk early morning run or a relaxing evening wander with your cherished dog.

The apartment consists of 223 sqm of combined indoor/outdoor living and dual courtyard space, delivering formal garden and lawn areas, and sandstone paved terraces that are exclusively yours. There is a built-in barbeque kitchen primed for alfresco dining and stylish, riverside entertaining.

Sliding, lockable plantation shutters at the edge of the expansive undercover area provide shade, privacy and weather control when needed and Crimsafe inclusions add a valuable, extra layer of protection.

Inside, newly installed solid Tasmanian Oak floors carry throughout. With 2.7-metre-high ceilings, Belgian crystal light fixtures and recently repainted interiors, the house-sized apartment is fresh and light. Subtly wheelchair friendly with its wide doorways and low transitions between rooms, the layout has been purposefully considered.

With sumptuous granite surfaces, high-performing Smeg appliances and timber cabinetry, the kitchen is timeless, well-equipped and functional. Included are a 5-burner gas cooktop, rangehood and under bench oven, a dishwasher, a plumbed-in fridge recess and a coffee machine nook.

Designed to deliver utmost privacy, the master bedroom suite is situated separate from the other two, with this 5-metre-long room truly king-sized. Look across the garden to the river and step outside onto the terrace and courtyard via a second sliding door.

Featuring cream marble floors and richly veined marble countertop surfaces, the ensuite exudes a style reminiscent of a 5-star hotel and includes a deep spa bath. The walk-in wardrobe is large and fitted with customised storage.

The remaining bedrooms enjoy a northerly aspect and are both built-in, with one having access to a private courtyard area. You will appreciate the full-sized laundry and guest powder room amenities.

Garaging is provided for two cars side-by-side within the secure, underground parking area, with each space having a storage lock-up. The elevator entrance is, favourably, only a few steps away. Entry to The River Gallery Apartments is undoubtedly well planned, with secure building access and electronically controlled gates leading to resident and visitor parking spaces.

Faultlessly maintained and professionally managed, the entire complex is immaculate, with impeccable sub-tropical gardens, water features and connecting walkways. There is an enormous, heated 22m pool ideal for lap swimming, health and fitness facilities that include weights and cardio machines, a steam room and a sauna, and food gardens for residents to enjoy. A stunning display of epiphytic Phalaenopsis orchids, elkhorn and staghorn plants are found growing on palms and shade trees within the beautiful landscape.

A rare and unique opportunity in an extraordinarily tightly held and coveted riverfront development, this courtyard apartment will appeal to discerning city-based professionals, executives and those with the desire to lock up and leave and travel often. Families with children will value the enormous resort-style pool within the complex and appreciate the proximity to some of Brisbane’s finest private schools, the best bicycle paths and beautiful New Farm Park.
