The recently completed Lucent Gasworks apartment complex is absolutely breathtaking. Located in Newstead, the residences have fabulous views of the river and Brisbane skyline, and there’s nowhere better to admire the vista than from the innovative Sky Retreat on the rooftop. That’s where you’ll find Australia’s longest infinity pool and a host of other resident-only amenities.
Surf Life Saving has gone all-out with this one, investing over $113,000 in a design package by Anju Designs. Every room has been outfitted with lush earth-toned furnishings and all are filled with natural light. Adjacent to the city’s CBD, you’ll be able to enjoy a luxurious urban lifestyle from your prestigious home above it all.
The first prize package also comes with a bonus $10,000 in gold bullion and a private rooftop dining experience where you can pop the cork and raise a glass to your good fortune. Don’t miss out on your chance to call one of Brisbane’s most exclusive properties home.
The Award-Winning Building
Completed in December of 2017, the Lucent is like a five-star hotel without all the pesky guests. The building is positioned on two acres of landscaped gardens, with water features and on-site retail outlets centered around a Mediterranean-style piazza. The marbled lobby leads to 190 apartments, spread over 15 opulent floors.
The hidden gem at the Lucent is its incredible rooftop terrace. The resident-only space covers 1,600 sqm and has different zones for exercising, relaxing, or peacefully contemplating the Zen gardens. The 55-metre infinity pool is the longest in the country and won the coveted 2018 Master Builders Award for Best Swimming Pool in a High-Rise Complex. Then there’s the golf simulator, yoga lawn, detox sauna and spa, fitness studio and walking track. The rooftop even has its own dedicated yoga instructor, professional golf instructors and personal trainers. You’ll never have to leave the building to get your fitness fix when the latest equipment and support is right above your head.
Just in case you actually want to go up top and relax, there’s a monthly wine-tasting session and plenty of space to spread out at the BBQ al fresco or in the comfortable sun lounges. You’ll also appreciate the building’s concierge service that can take care of your dry cleaning, car washing or dog walking. There’s also a private dining room that you can book ahead if you want to host a small function or dinner party.
If you’ve ever wondered what a millionaire’s playground looks like, this is it. Every service or amenity you can think of is located either right in the building or at the neighbouring Gasworks retail and dining precinct. You’re only a five-minute drive from the centre of the city and have easy access to the river’s CityCat ferry. You may even leave your car permanently parked in your secure underground space with the entire city literally at your feet.
The Designer Apartment
The two-bedroom apartments at the Lucent are cleverly designed to provide for both privacy and cozy communal spaces. The central living area blends the kitchen and dining room with a spacious lounge that borders the exterior balcony. The bedrooms on either side each have their own bathroom, one with a soaking tub and the other with a walk-in shower. The second bedroom opens onto a retreat/media room that can be closed off by a sliding wall and drapery. The semi-enclosed study leads into the compact laundry, adjacent to the fully-equipped gourmet kitchen.
The master bedroom has access to a large balcony that is enclosed with floor-to-ceiling glazing. The balcony curves around two sides of the apartment, providing excellent views and separate areas for dining and outdoor seating. Open the panes to let in the breeze or stay dry and watch a passing storm from the comfort of your armchair.
Timbered floors, stone benches, brass fixtures and Miele appliances all add to the stylish luxury of this impressive apartment. The ceilings are extra high, adding to the feeling of grandeur and accentuating the impressive dimensions of the 122sqm floor plan. With $133,031 worth of design and furnishings you’re not likely to find anything missing, but if you still feel the need to go on a shopping spree, you’ll have $10,000 in cashable gold bullion to make your new home truly your own.
