Brisbane’s best trophy home on the market

BRISBANE’S most iconic and famous trophy home called Balaa1m at 33b Harbour Rd, Hamilton is officially back on the market.

Less than three years after it broke the Brisbane house price record, Balaam’s singular modern style designed by award-winning architect Shaun Lockyer is once again for sale by an expressions of interest campaign through leading agent Matt Lancashire, director and principal of Ray White New Farm.

The eight-bedroom home with an enviable dress circle address is only one of two houses directly on the Brisbane River at Hamilton.

“There’s no doubt that Hamilton is one of Brisbane’s premier suburbs and Balaam is positioned on the bank of riverfront. I have an intimate knowledge of this property as I had the great pleasure of selling it to the current owner,” Mr Lancashire said.

“This prized parcel of real estate is a market gem and won’t last long.

“Balaam is a truly unique before it is spirited away forever.

Owner Kevin Duan and his family have enjoyed living at Balaam for the past few years.

“I was instantly attracted to this house, as it’s got great energy and it’s just beautiful too,” Mr Duan said, who is moving to Melbourne for his business-interests.

Balaam was meticulously built by leading Brisbane-based construction company Hutchison Builders to meet the very highest of standards.

The property received countless accolades from both the architecture and construction industry since its completion in 2007.

The commanding three-storey masterpiece, set on 1,609sq m, was originally built as part of an extraordinary brief to build the finest family home in Brisbane.














The trophy home comes with every conceivable luxury and consideration imaginable.

This includes eight oversized bedrooms – each with their own designer ensuites; living areas and recreational rooms liberally spread throughout; and split level construction offering privacy and subtle separation.
