A suspended concrete tri-level glass and stone mansion perched on the hill in Mount Ommaney, Brisbane, is one of the city’s most elevated waterfront properties.

Boasting panoramic views of Brisbane River, as well as distant mountain range views of Cunningham’s Gap, comes this 5-bedroom, 5-bathroom, 12-car parking pile spread across a secluded 2858sqm location.

Inside, a three-storey central void is reminiscent of five-star international hotels – giving an immense sense of space, further elevated by soaring panes of glass and a sweeping circular staircase. Drawing the eye in once more is a stone-clad internal lift that services all floors.

The top level – facing the river – sees the master bedroom, complete with ensuite, walk-in-robe, and nearby study or nursery. The master bedroom is surrounded by private rooftop deck.

The middle level is the core of the home, with the living, dining and kitchen space all located here. The kitchen boasts a quartz island bench and butler’s kitchen alongside a powder room. A custom-built, spacious bar – made of French Oak – which opens out onto a spacious deck is ideal for drinking in the views.

Also on the middle level is the children’s wing – featuring three bedrooms, each with individual balconies. One enjoys an ensuite, while the other two share a bathroom.

The lower level also homes a 10-seat, 3- tired French-inspired cinema, replete with a cocktail cabinet and games table area.  Further, a custom-built Alpine stone bar and backs ono an enormous rumpus room with a full-sized lounge and pool table.

Also on the lower level is a bedroom which acts well as a guest room. Also here is another luxurious bathroom.

The lower level also grants access – via stacking doors – to the alfresco entertaining area complete with magnesium infinity pool, 8-seater spa and outside pool house with shower and toilet.

Located 25-minutes to Brisbane’s CBD and an hour’s drive to the Gold Coast, the grand residence enjoys the conveniences of Mount Ommaney without forgoing its relaxed lifestyle.

The listing is with NGU Real Estate Toowong’s Emil Juresic (+61 481 601 793), POA. ngurealestate.com.au

Amid looming rate rises, there are reasons to be cheerful as mortgage holders head into 2023

Mortgage holders should brace themselves for more pain as the Reserve Bank of Australia board prepares to meet tomorrow for the first time this year.

Most economists and the major banks are predicting a rise of 25 basis points will be announced, although the Commonwealth Bank suggests that the RBA may take the unusual step of a 40 basis point rise to bring the interest rate up to a more conventional 3.5 percent. This would allow the RBA to step back from further rate rises for the next few months as it assesses the impact of tightening monetary policy on the economy.

The decision by the RBA board to make consecutive rate rises since April last year is an attempt to wrestle inflation down to a more manageable 3 or 4 percent. The Australian Bureau of Statistics reports that the inflation rate rose to 7.8 percent over the December quarter, the highest it has been since 1990, reflected in higher prices for food, fuel and construction.

Higher interest rates have coincided with falling home values, which Ray White chief economist Nerida Conisbee says are down 6.1 percent in capital cities since peaking in March 2022. The pain has been greatest in Sydney, where prices have dropped 10.8 percent since February last year. Melbourne and Canberra recorded similar, albeit smaller falls, while capitals like Adelaide, which saw property prices fall 1.8 percent, are less affected.

Although prices may continue to decline, Ms Conisbee (below) said there are signs the pace is slowing and that inflation has peaked.

“December inflation came in at 7.8 per cent with construction, travel and electricity costs being the biggest drivers. It is likely that we are now at peak,” Ms Conisbee said. 

“Many of the drivers of high prices are starting to be resolved. Shipping costs are now down almost 90 per cent from their October 2021 peak (as measured by the Baltic Dry Index), while crude oil prices have almost halved from March 2022. China is back open and international migration has started up again. 

“Even construction costs look like they are close to plateau. Importantly, US inflation has pulled back from its peak of 9.1 per cent in June to 6.5 per cent in December, with many of the drivers of inflation in this country similar to Australia.”
