Designer Brisbane retreat sold days before Christmas - NEWS.com.au
A Brisbane designer home that took out a national award last month has fetched a multimillion-dollar price just days before Christmas.
The stunning Wights Mountain retreat was designed by renowned Brisbane architect Shaun Lockyer and saw builder VL Constructions take out this year’s Housing Industry Association national award just over a month ago (-2 million Custom Built Home category).
Hamish Bowman of Ray White New Farm — who marketed the property with his principal Matt Lancashire — posted the .6 million sale this morning.
Mr Bowman told The Courier-Mail that the property went unconditional on Friday.
“It’s a year old property,” he said. “We had it on the market for four weeks, got four offers through the tender process and it sold to a family who just want a beautiful home with a beautiful landscape.”

Called The Greenhouse, it was listed as a “modern interpretation of a farmhouse” loaded with natural materials including Rosewood stacker doors and barn doors, Ironbark flooring, slate and marble.
The six acre property is in the vicinity of Samford Valley, just 21 kilometres northwest of Brisbane CBD — offering the ultimate blend of retreat and city home.
The design incorporated environmentally friendly options including a chlorine free swimming pool with Enviroswim filter, drought tolerant native plantings by landscape designer Dan Young, solar power, four water tanks and dog proof fencing across the entire site.
The home has two living zones, with 15 foot ceilings, a farmhouse mudroom, drying room and laundry, a separate master wing, a guest wing, triple car garage, huge alfresco wing with built in barbecue and seating, and a huge shed to store caravans or horse floats.
