This amazing penthouse sits atop the historic and iconic MacArthur Chambers in the very centre of Brisbane’s CBD. It is a castle and palace fit for a King and Queen.
The US military chose the city’s best building as its headquarters to run the war in the Pacific during WWII. General Douglas MacArthur’s original office is maintained by the war museum within. The grand staircase kept MacArthur fit!
Since then, building improvements include a rooftop pool, spa, sauna, gym, BBQ area and two lifts.
The property boasts over-size bedrooms and bathrooms, powder and study spaces. It combines the sophistication of a Manhattan apartment with a unique 25-metre castle-like façade. Add sandstone, vaulted arches, coffered ceilings and superb city views and this property, above all others in the city, is a one of a kind buy.
If you renovate to an even higher standard of opulence, you will be richly rewarded. The property already has four zone physical entry security, three zone ducted air-conditioning, two secure basement car parks and a nearby separate waste chute.
You enter through a formal granite tiled foyer and proceed into grand living, dining and kitchen space that form the central hub of the home. Off the lounge is a perfect outdoor balcony with breathtaking views down Queen Street. An electric vergola shutter roof allows you to shelter from rain and control light and shade.
There are two big secluded bedrooms. The Master has a walk-through robe, ensuite with spa bath/shower, full width vanity and mirrors and twin basins as well as a separate large vergola roofed private balcony. The guest bathroom is conveniently located near the second bedroom and features a walk-in shower and compact vanity.
The kitchen features high quality appliances, dishwasher, gas cooktop, ducted rangehood, electric oven, double sinks, servery breakfast bar and good storage. It is finished with granite flooring and overlooks, and serves to, the living areas.
The apartment is ready to occupy and available with vacant possession upon settlement.
