A semi-exposed staircase takes you to the lower level where a stainless steel and marble kitchen is central to the main living space.The view from the kitchen hub looks across the alfresco to a monumental pool.The lower level also accommodates four bedrooms, two bathrooms plus powder room and enormous storage space.The seller, Roy Mills, told News Corp last year it took a long time to build the home because of high attention to detail.“The house was being built around the same time as GOMA was being built and GOMA almost got built faster than this,” he said.“It was only when we got the 3D model put together that I really started to understand it.” Timber decking and a desert garden provide a link to the upper-level study. The home, known as the “B House”, is considered a significant contribution to Brisbane’s architectural landscape.last_img
