‘TORRE’ on Hamilton Hill wins Best Residential Property in Asia Pacific

Prestige property developer, Capital Luxury Residences (CLR) has won Best Residential Property in the Asia Pacific region for its Spanish-inspired luxury home, TORRE, at the recent International Property Awards in Bangkok, Thailand.

Designed by CLR’s Design Director, Alissa Birch in collaboration with Melbourne-based practice, Mason Bright Architects, the palatial three storey home spans 730sqm and includes five-bedrooms, four-bathrooms, 8 car accommodation, gym area, smart home automation, Gaggenau appliances, a Subzero fridges and a spacious indoor-outdoor entertaining area. The property features a mixture of veneer and melamine cabinetry throughout with a communal fire-pit and swimming pool.

Located at 36 Langside Street Hamilton, TORRE, meaning “tower” in Spanish, features super contemporary architecture with four-metre-high ceilings bringing in an abundance of natural light and a sense of grandeur and luxury to the property. A stand-out feature is the breathtaking views the home captures from every level of the Brisbane CBD skyline and meandering Brisbane River.

CLR’s Design Director and CEO, Alissa Birch, expressed her pride in receiving this accolade: “Winning Best Residential Property Award for TORRE is a significant achievement for our team. This project has been a labour of love, and we are thrilled that our efforts have been recognised on an international stage.”

“It is incredibly rewarding to be acknowledged internationally, especially because all our designs are meticulously crafted with materials we personally source from around the world. These are materials that have never been used in Australia before. Our commitment is to innovate and bring the very best to our country and our clients.”

“Our Hamilton Hill property draws inspiration from its prime hill-side location positioned at one of the highest points in Brisbane, offering a completely elevated level of interior design and amenity in one of Brisbane’s most prestigious riverside suburbs.”

Standout features of TORRE include an enormous walk-in robe in the master bedroom with one of Brisbane best views of both the CBD skyline and Brisbane River, a 10m x 4m swimming pool offering a direct line of site from the kitchen to the pool, designed with safety in mind for families.

“One of the hero pieces is the kitchen’s Palissandro marble; a precious and very rare stone quarried in Italy characterised by a rather uniform and neutral beige background crossed by grey and brownish veining, stripes and shadings,” Alissa described.

Capital Luxury Residences Chairman, Phil Pezzi, remarked on the significance of the award: “This recognition is a tremendous honour and a testament to the hard work and dedication of our talented team. We are passionate about creating luxury homes that exceed the expectations of our clients. This award motivates us to continue pushing the boundaries of residential development in Queensland.”

“The level of craftsmanship of TORRE is a true credit to every member of our hard-working and immensely talented team headed by our incredibly dedicated Construction Director, Paul Carson. This is a stand-out property on Brisbane’s competitive prestige home market,” he said.

The TORRE property also won the Best Residential Property in Australia at the International Property Awards earlier in April, winning ahead of numerous other houses across the country.

The Hamilton Hill residence is CLR’s 23rd property to be completed since establishing in 2019 in Queensland. The company has a further five luxury homes due to be completed by mid-2024.
