Made of 31 (!) brand new 20 foot shipping containers, this spectacular four bedroom, four bathroom, 6,000 square foot home is located 5 miles away from the heart of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.
The house was put on the market in late 2013, with an asking price of $1.55 million Australian dollars.
31 Shipping Container Home broker’s description:
“It’s not often that a home of this calibre comes onto the market.
Welcome to the largest shipping container house of its kind in Australia. Sprawling over three levels, built from 31 shipping containers and demonstrating superior fit and finish in every aspect of its unique design, it is a significant residential offering the likes of which will not be found anywhere else.
Immaculate presentation defines this architectural home.
Encompassing three generous levels, it sees a return to the power of classic design elements: clean lines, open spaces and quality finishes. Seamless living areas span across the first floor, merging together without interruption. Cleverly designed to incorporate interesting angles, soaring voids and artistic features, these abundant living spaces are both practical and visually engaging.
Rich interiors details emphasise natural elegance, showcasing a dynamic mixture of materials while an abundant use of glass maximises natural light throughout and encourages uninterrupted visual connections with the river and leafy surrounds.
The transition between indoors and out was paramount in the design of this home as evidenced by the numerous outdoor spaces featured on each level.
Purpose built for relaxing and entertaining, these outdoor spaces open the home up to cooling breezes while creating a relaxed and balanced floor plan that makes the most of the tropical Queensland climate.
There are four bedrooms positioned over two levels, offering the space and privacy to accommodate the growing family.
Three are positioned together on the first floor while the master encompasses the entire upper level.
The ultimate parent’s retreat, it is further enhanced by extensive walk-in robes and a lavish private ensuite complete with tiled mural.
It’s the fastidious attention to detail that really sets this home apart.
Evident in every aspect of the design, it not only ensures quality family living but provides delightful surprises and clever inclusions around every corner.
From the mezzanine reading room to the pull out queen wall bed in the rumpus room, this home surpasses your every expectation.
Other exceptional features include a study, art study/home office, workshop, gym space and sparkling saltwater pool.
The home also offers a 3000L water tank, satellite wiring and is solar ready.
Situated on 706m2 in tranquil Graceville with river views, the convenience of this home nearly surpasses its individual beauty.
A number of local shops and restaurants are located nearby as are schools, public transport and parklands, offering that well-balanced family lifestyle.
Additionally, the CBD is a mere 8kms away for quick and easy access to all that Brisbane has to offer.”
