A beautifully restored century-old Queensland homestead on one of Coorparoo’s most prestigious streets is the centrepiece of Your Style Homes’ new $5 million inner-city residential development, Aspect Coorparoo.
The original Queenslander on the site has been expertly reimagined and reconfigured into three spacious, three bedroom townhouses.
These premium residences are complemented by the strikingarchitectural profile of an additional five, new three- bedroom townhouses, creating a total of eight residences of real character.
The project’s elevated position on the apex of a hill at 43 Raby Road, Coorparoo, means residents will enjoy full views of Brisbane’s city skyline. Seven of eight townhomes in the project have now sold with just one opportunity left to be part of this amazing lifestyle.
Your Style Homes Managing Director Dean Parker explained that the development aimed to carefully restore the site’s existing home and incorporate the modern additions to the side and rear in line with the look and feel of the street.
“The biggest challenge of the project has been maintaining the existing home, refurbishing it to the highest standards while seamlessly integrating new, modern dwellings,” Mr Parker said.
“Original homes like this were built to suit a British style of living with small windows and small rooms, so we weaved in the modern style of development living – with large, open, light-filled spaces – while maintaining the essence of the existing house.
“We retained and refurbished the existing front façade of the Queenslander fronting
Raby Road to enhance the relationship and preserve the character and splendour using the original roof lines to enhance its classic street appeal,” he said.
Mr Parker noted that rebuilding the home piece-by-piece to reach current building standards required careful planning.
“It was important for us to strike an appropriate contextual balance that paid homage to the past within a contemporary feel. We are very proud of the way it has come together and that has been evidenced by the great response from buyers.”
Finishes throughout the project have been sourced to match the quality of the design with the stone benchtops, timber flooring, Roger Seller kitchen and bathroom fittings and premium-grade appliances buyers would expect from a modern inner-city development.
Only one townhouse remains for sale in the project and includes three bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and two car paces. Townhouse 8 is available at $719,950.
