The house at 11 Torrelliana Court, Cornubia, is for sale.
THE views and the architecture of this Cornubia property is what drew Chris Clunies-Ross in about 14 years ago.
Mr Clunies-Ross said the four-level property was the highest peak in about 25km, which afforded them views spanning 360 degrees.
The spiral staircase is an interesting piece of architecture.
“At the back it is state forest, leading through to Stradbroke, and at the front, looking toward the city, it’s all lit up like a Christmas tree at night,” Mr Clunies-Ross said.
The home, which is at 11 Torrelliana Court, has a unique style of architecture, with curved edges and windows, and had a floorplan that appealed to Mr Clunies-Ross
“It has got a spiral staircase with an atrium at the top, which I really like,” he said.
“It’s got lots of different and private areas.”
The curved architecture continues in the kitchen.
Mr Clunies-Ross and his wife Katrina have found the residence the perfect place to raise four children.
“Two of our kids were born while we lived at the house, so it was special bringing them home and watching them grow up there,” Mr Clunies-Ross said.
“But we own an apartment in Kangaroo Point… and since our eldest daughter has moved to China we are downsizing.”
There are incredible views from the bedroom.
Out on one of the home’s many balconies is Mr Clunies-Ross’ favourite space.
“My favourite balcony is off the dining room,” he said.
“It looks all over Logan, and you can see all the mountain ranges down to New South Wales.
“I go out there for a drink and cigar at night (and) it gets the most beautiful sunsets.”
He said the house was perfect for a large family, such as his own.
“It’s got a really beautiful pool. It also has got a children’s play area at the back, with a cubby house, and a reasonable sized lawn.”
