Make a luxury sea change to Brisbane’s bayside

first_imgOne of a kind: 168 Main Road, Wellington PointApproach 168 Main Road, Wellington Point, from the street and you would assume it was a modest, single-level house.Switch your viewing vantage point to the water, however, and you suddenly realise how wrong that assumption would be. The spacious wraparound pool.Rising up three storeys and with every amenity you can imagine, this property is nothing short of a mini-resort and like nothing else built in the suburb.Spread across 1,246 sq m in the Waterloo Bay area, it is everything homeowners Brian and Adele Maloney envisaged when they began building their dream home.“I was running a company that was very high pressure. So we wanted somewhere we could A perfect spot for breakfast.come and relax and, essentially, close the door on all those pressures,” Mr Maloney said.“One thing that we specified in the design is that every room had to have a view, because we do have the most beautiful views.”The other non-negotiables for the Maloneys were peace and privacy. “I needed to make sure that sound wasn’t an issue,” Mr Maloney said, “so there are concrete floors on every level. Curl up in front of the fire and watch the sun set.“And while most of the houses on Main Road will get some traffic noise, we don’t hear a thing. We can’t even hear our neighbours when we’re in the house. That was the level of serenity we were looking for, so that when we arrived home we could basically check-out from the world and just enjoy our resort.” There are wide sea views from almost every room in the house.The property sits on what was originally part of a 5,000 to 6,0000 sq m parcel of land that had been owned by one local family for almost 80 years. When it went on the market, the land was sub-divided into six lots and 168 Main Road became one of them.“We were very lucky to have got it,” Mr Maloney said. “My wife and I used to walk our dogs along there for years and when we saw the land come up for sale, we had to have it,” he said. You couldn’t guess at what lies behind the modest street-level entrance.The Maloneys flattened two old houses on the site to build their family home, the size of which has earned them a level of quiet notoriety among local residents.“I went to the pool shop in the village one day and the guy asked me how many litres of water the pool held. When I said 165,000, he just looked and me and said, “You’re him aren’t you? The guy with that big house”, Mr Maloney laughed. Settle in at the bar for a long evening.The original floor plan was meant to be about 600 sq m, but under the architect’s guidance blew out to more than 900 sq m. “Yet when we looked at it we couldn’t see anything we wanted to trim.”As you enter the house you are met with a terrazzo-tiled foyer from which you can reach the master bedroom and ensuite, gym, study and formal living and dining area. Descend to the second storey and you will find two bedrooms, the home theatre room, laundry, kitchen, and grand dining and living areas which extend out to a rear deck. Wake up to this every morning.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus9 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market9 hours agoOn the lower level is the remaining bedroom, a media room, wine cellar and games room which leads out to covered entertaining space with cooking facilities.Wrapped around the property is a pool, big enough for someone to do laps down one side while everyone else frolics about at another end. It is heated for the winter and also has a spa. The doors to the cellar were brought up from the Gold Coast.It’s difficult to take in the sheer size of this property, and almost impossible to imagine the views that it takes in from almost every room. “We can see the city, Mt-Cootha, and the airport from here,” Mr Maloney said. “You just feel the stress drain out of you when you walk and that’s when you go, “yes, this is worth it”. There’s plenty of space for a large family.While there are many places in which to unwind, Mr Maloney said his favourite was the balcony overlooking the water on which the couple eat breakfast most mornings. “I’m going to miss that terribly,” he said.While the property has been a true home to the Maloney family, the couple have two sons now aged 26 and 28, a health issue has made them reconsider their position. The house is private and quiet.“We don’t have the capability to maintain a house of this size anymore and so we decided it might be time for someone else to enjoy our home,” Mr Maloney said.The couple intend to downsize to a small property with one of their sons, who has Asperger’s syndrome, in Wellington Point.“We dearly love Wellington Point. It’s a lovely community and we’re not moving out of it.”The house is on the market and open to best offers before July 4 through Sarah Hackett of Place Bulimba.last_img read more

Fugro Makes Hollandse Kust (Noord) Comeback

first_imgFugro will carry out a site characterization program with its geotechnical drilling vessel Fugro Synergy at the Hollandse Kust (Noord) offshore wind farm zone as part of a further contract with the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (’s work scope includes seabed investigations and borehole drilling at two lots, as well as standard and advanced laboratory testing and an integrated geological/geotechnical soil model which will be used by future developers of the wind farm to prepare their bids.According to Fugro, the fieldwork will take place between April and June and will see the deployment of the company’s two most recent technical innovations, expected to enhance safety and bring improved operational efficiency to the project.“From Fugro Synergy we’ll operate the Fugro SEADEVIL®, an offshore geotechnical tool that optimises vertical control during drilling and enables our team to acquire high quality samples,” said Sven Plasman, Fugro’s Project Director.“The seabed cone penetration testing (CPT) will be carried out using our SEACALF MkIV system; its coiled rod requires no manual handling, ensuring safer operations, while the continuous drive system yields high quality data. Both of these innovative systems are fundamental to reducing operational costs and are integral elements of Fugro’s specialised support for the offshore wind industry.”In August last year, Fugro conducted a geophysical survey of the Hollandse Kust (Noord) area to map the seabed and position of existing cables and pipelines, as well as the possible presence of shipwrecks and other obstacles.Located off the west coast of the Netherlands, the 700MW Hollandse Kust (Noord) wind farm zone subsidy and permit tender is scheduled for 2019.The Netherlands has six offshore wind sites in the pipeline at two Hollandse Kust zones: four at Hollandse Kust (Zuid), and two at Hollandse Kust (Noord). Each of the sites at the wind farm zones can accommodate 350MW.last_img read more
