This exemplary Pinjarra Hills residence is a testament to the skill of the internationally renowned architect and RAIA Architectural Gold Medalist, Gabriel Poole, and Mark Perriman, Award-Winning Prestige Brisbane Landscaping Specialists.
'Shiren Residence' is an original 1968 iconic Poole House, with a 1990's Poole extension including a new entrance gallery and Master Retreat Wing. The original home boasts the 1969 Bronze Medal Award for the Residence of the Year by the Queensland Chapter of the Royal Australian Institute of Architects.
Located only a 20-minute drive to the Brisbane CBD, and situated upon 2.5 acres of land, the home carries all of Poole's signature moves perfect for subtropical Brisbane: modernist open plan living, multiple open living areas (internal and external) expertly tailored for the Queensland climate. Rooms are bathed in natural light and thoughtfully designed windows connect you with the masterfully landscaped surrounds.
Key architectural elements include high-level windows designed to allow natural cross-ventilation, an external load-bearing structure that provides a colonnade around the house, and allows greater flexibility in configuring internal walls and windows, and expansive use of glazing brings the Australian outdoors in. Finessed mitred glass corner windows allow uninterrupted enjoyment of the landscape, courtyard, and abundant wildlife including visits by sugar gliders, king parrots, rainbow lorikeets, wallabies, echidnas, and deer.
The tiled roof design was inspired by the Italian pavilions and adapted to suit Brisbane's sub-tropical climate with large overhangs shading the exterior walls, providing shade throughout summer.
Here is your opportunity to own the ideal family home designed by one of the most significant architects to have emerged from Queensland, in the prestigious Pinjarra Hills. Enjoy the best of our beautiful Brisbane sub-tropical climate in diverse landscaped settings: a skillfully designed Japanese garden greets you upon entry; and a private free-form in-ground swimming pool has been cleverly designed with natural flat boulders to blend in harmoniously with the natural landscape creating a tranquil retreat. The perfect paved covered outdoor room is ready for you to entertain friends and family.
Upon entering the 1990 extension, you are greeted with handsome handcrafted timber and glazed joinery doors and full height glazing overlooking screens that provide profuse natural light and connection to the outdoors. The private master bedroom wing is to the right of the entry vestibule, with the balance of sleeping and living quarters to the left.
The kitchen sits at the heart of the southern wing, the original kitchen has been beautifully renovated complete with seamless Corian benchtops, appointed with premium built-in European stainless steel appliances, walk-in pantry, and custom-designed lighting continuing the original architectural detailing. The kitchen overlooks the north-facing open plan living area and dining area separated by a magnificent double-sided fireplace. To the south of the southern wing, sit the outdoor entertainment area and in-ground pool.
