It is like having your own rooftop bar
WHEN the owners bought this “sky home” two years ago, it was just a basic shell.
Unperturbed by its drab and unfinished state, Jordana Stott could see its potential.
“I drew a lot of inspiration from American and Australian designers, like David Hicks and Greg Natale,” Ms Stott, 33, said.
801/8 Kyabra Street, Newstead
“I am a big fan of layering and putting textures together, keeping the fundamentals simple and then accenting it with furniture.”
Now that’s a night light!
The penthouse at 801/8 Kyabra Street in Newstead is Ms Stott’s second renovation.
She said statement marble used throughout the property had been sourced from a stonemason at Pinkeba, and the chandelier in the stairwell was a Timothy Oulton piece.
“I would say that one of the big features is the 90sq m of lawn,” Ms Stott said. “We wanted to create our own Garden of Eden in Newstead.
“We spend a lot of time outside and the views are amazing.”
The rooftop Garden of Eden
The living space covers approximately 962sq m – more than four times the size of the average new house.
On the main level is a huge living and dining space and the kitchen, which is finished with white marble, double ovens and a butler’s pantry.
That space flows out on to the bar and pool deck, which wraps around a pool, spa and feature fountain.
Also on this level is the master suite, which includes an ensuite with dual shower heads, a double vanity, a steam room and a large walk-in wardrobe.
Ms Stott said one her favourite features of the house was “my closet”.
On the lower level is where you will find a further four bedroom, another spacious living, dining and kitchen space, the laundry, a media room and a spacious alfresco outdoor area.
But perhaps the crown jewel is the private rooftop terrace, which comes with grass and manicured gardens, a fire pit, another alfresco outdoor space, a games room, a dressing room, another bathroom and a shed.
A lift also services each level of the penthouse and there is room for three cars.
Ms Stott said she was thrilled with the finished product but she was keen for a new project.
“We must be mad,” she laughed.
The mega penthouse is listed with Tom Lyne of Ray White New Farm and will go under the hammer at 6pm on November 13.
