A Warehouse Inspired Penthouse Like No Other

The beauty of a warehouse-style conversion is found in its immense sense of space. This unique offering at 1/6 Tilbrook Street, Teneriffe on the Brisbane River offers vacuous amounts of loft and light across three levels.

The interplay of glass and architectural voids – combined with the 921sqm floorplan – sees this residence feel exceptionally large. With 6-bedrooms, 5-bathrooms and 4-car garage with direct access, the penthouse functions more like a rooftop home than an apartment.

The main living space sees soaring ceiling heights in which the kitchen – fitted with granite benchtops, Gaggenau appliances and a butler’s pantry – combines with the outdoor dining and living room. A vintage Indian motorbike has been bolted into the wall and comes with purchase.

Outdoors, the balcony provides plenty of space to entertain, with a built-in barbecue, refrigeration and kitchenette, while a glass shutter offers protection from the elements.

It’s also on this floor that you’ll find the master suite, which is complete by its own walk-in robe and ensuite.

Upstairs sees the remaining bedrooms, two of which are replete with ensuites. Also here, is the theatre room and a separate large bathroom.

Further, the top level sees more room for entertaining. Here a living space is complete with a powder room, two balconies, a bar and kitchenette, while a gas fireplace forms the centrepiece of the room.

Each floor is accessible via an internal lift, with the residence is also privy to a gym, cellar, guest suite and is controlled by a CBUS-like system that automates, blinds, shutters, the skylight, speakers – found throughout the house – aircon and Boffi fans.

One of only nine residences in the build, the address gives rare access to the restaurants, cafes and Gasworks precinct and is only a short walk to the river.

The listing is with Place’s Heath Williams (+61 403 976 115). Price guide $6m.

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.”
