REAL estate marketing agents in Brisbane are promoting a million-dollar-plus near-city residence as the ideal corporate home for Asian-based companies. The prestige tri-level house is going to auction on April 3 in the Brisbane suburb of Albion. It is a definitive entertainer's house with the multi-levels and clean, clear lines. It has city views. The home is set in a secluded location, but only six kilometres from the city. Sandstone and marble stairs lead from the lock-up garage to the front entry. Inside, the foyer has skylights and a marble-tiled floor. A sunken formal lounge and dining room with a glass-topped bar and fireplace opens to a tiled balcony with a curved steel balustrade. One end of the swimming pool extends into the family room. A glass wall that splits the inside pool area from the outside can be raised. The family room also leads to a black-tiled entertainment area with a barbecue. In the garden there is a waterfall to the pool, a slate-tiled retaining wall and a garden planted with tropical ferns and palms. There is a powder room for pool users and a laundry is located conveniently close to the outdoor drying area. The ground floor has a guest suite with access to the pool. It also has a full en suite and timber-slatted blinds. The main bathroom is upstairs and has a spa, separate shower and bidet. The en suite in the master bedroom is disguised by a panel of mirrored robe doors and interesting marble tile off-cuts break up the floor pattern. The master bedroom has doors to another balcony. The office, which can be reached through the garage, has a partition wall, ceiling fan and full security. It could also be used as a maid's quarters. The house is conveniently located close to private schools and transport. Bidding is expected to start from A$1 million (HK5.5 million).
