People like to set themselves up in opposing groups. There’s cat people and dog people. Cricket fans and footie fanatics. Beatles or Stones. The real dividing line though is between people who long for the country and those who can’t stand to be away from the city. If you’re in the second group, this is the Home Lottery draw you’ve been waiting for.
The Highgate is a new and highly sought after Pointcorp development only two km's from Brisbane’s CBD. It has stunning curb appeal; all glass and angled balconies to make the most of its panoramic views. This home is positioned in the ideal location for making the most of everything Brisbane has to offer, whether you’re still working or enjoying an active and vibrant retirement.
A Unique Neighbourhood in the Heart of Brisbane
The First Prize home in draw #272 can be found at 180 Dornoch Terrace, an enviable address in Brisbane’s Highgate Hill neighbourhood. The Brisbane River lies to the North, West and East of the property as it bends around the south of the city and the West End.
Highgate Hill is a long-established suburb and home to almost 6,000 residents, with an average age of 34. This is a little lower than the Australian median and speaks to the lively, contemporary feel of the neighbourhood. It also has more than two dozen Heritage listed sites, however, many of which can be found along Dornoch Terrace itself. Ron Archer, the talented and famous Australian Test cricketer, was born in Highgate Hill.
The rolling topography of the area is what gives residents so many splendid views of Brisbane’s central core. Being so close to downtown, public transportation is readily available and highly efficient. Schools, shops, cafes and restaurants abound, along with lots of green space and parkland. It’s no wonder that Highgate Hill has consistently been called the best neighbourhood in Brisbane.
The Highgate: Your 1.7 Million Dollar Urban Oasis
The Highgate features 42 three-bedroom apartments, all of which have north-facing, uninterrupted views of the city.
The grounds cover 1.5 acres and feature lush and terraced gardens for the enjoyment of its residents. These gardens cover 80% of the property and transform the site into an urban oasis. The landscape designers created a stunning complement to the building’s sleek architecture and minimalist lines, providing a natural and verdant haven.
The interior of the building was subject to no less careful scrutiny, and you can see the meticulous attention to detail in all of the beautifully appointed rooms. The kitchen was designed by world famous chef and restaurateur Neil Perry, combining the performance of a commercial kitchen with the style of luxury apartment living.
Everything you need is conveniently within reach of your new home. Highgate Hill Park is right next door, and you’re within a stone’s throw of the Queensland Museum, Art Gallery and State Library. Central Brisbane is only two kilometers away, and you have easy access to shops and restaurants within Highgate Hill proper.

Brisbane: Gateway to the Coast
Brisbane was named the capital of Queensland when it broke off from New South Wales and became an independent State in 1859. The city grew rapidly, and is now the third most populous in Australia. Almost three million people call it home, and welcome thousands of international visitors every year.
To the north of Brisbane lies the Sunshine Coast, beginning near the fabled Glass House Mountains and stretching for over 60 km to the town of Tewantin. Domestic and international tourists flock to its pristine beaches to enjoy the sun, sand, and myriad water sports.
To the south of the city is the world-famous Gold Coast, renowned for its surfing, theme parks, and inland canals and waterways. When you live in Brisbane, you’re never far from the natural beauty of the hinterland or the beach culture that’s as much a part of our heritage as vegemite and pavlova.

The Mater Foundation: Care for Australia’s Youngest Citizens
Mater Mothers’ Hospitals welcome around 29 new babies every single day. That’s over 10,000 new little ones every year. Unfortunately, many are born prematurely, or with serious complications that require specialized care. On average, a premature baby will spend over 18 days in a neonatal critical care unit where they’ll get round the clock care and attention.
As we’re sure you can imagine, that’s very expensive. When you buy tickets in any one of Mater’s six annual prize home lotteries, you’re helping to fund that care and the research needed to develop new treatments and solutions for ailing newborns. Your help is essential to this critical work, and we thank you vey much for your ongoing support. Enjoy the satisfaction of knowing when you support Mater Prize Draw #272, you know your purchase is making a difference in people's lives.
May your month be filled with good health, joy, prosperity and generosity! PHT
