Text description provided by the architects. The ‘Great Australian Dream’ of owning a quarter acre block with a new house has become a distant memory in inner-city Brisbane, as parcels of land are shaved down repeatedly in a bid to densify the urban centre. Nestled within the urban streets of Teneriffe, a colonial Queenslander presented a charming frontage that concealed the potential for the Architect to utilise the vacant 300m2 backyard to design and build a new family home.

The ‘Backyard House’ has been an opportunity to set a precedent for suburban infill development as an alternative to the prevailing trend of building apartments near railway and bus stations.

From the quiet tree lined cul-de-sac the magnificent residence floats gracefully above the street, displaying its broad and unique 21 metre street frontage. After entering the home through a secure gatehouse under the canopy of a large native you arrive to a home of sheer architectural brilliance.

The house is designed by architect Joe Adsett who is leading the next generation of architects redefining the New Farm architectural style. The home is newly built yet exudes a timeless architectural language, described in the words of the architect as “bespoke grandeur”.

A journey through the residence reveals the most exquisite architectural experience incorporating the most opulent finishes and details such as Western Red Cedar Castelation cladding, polished wide oak flooring, honed silver travertine, slabs of white marble and timber battened ceilings soaring through the 6.5 metre high void.

This opulence and grandeur is paired beautifully with the inclusion of bespoke items such as David Trubridge pendent lighting, rosewood timber windows and doors and a stunning eight person polished oak dining table. This home is a must see for those who appreciate the finer things in life, as it is the perfect balance of grandeur and bespoke charm.

The expansive home comprises many features including: four generous bedrooms with built in wardrobes and storage, double lockup garage, automated and manual external blinds, multi zoned ducted AC, video intercom and two internal storage rooms. A low maintenance mature native garden designed by renowned landscape architect Beau Hilliar offers convenience and practicality.
