Not everyone wants to move to the Sunshine Coast or spend all of their holidays in Surfers Paradise. If you love the city and have been waiting for an urban prize home, now’s the time to pay attention.

Mater’s first draw of 2019 is a real stunner. This 3-bedroom apartment is located in the Emporium Residences, the last phase of Brisbane’s Southpoint development. The home is in the same complex as the exclusive Emporium Hotel, a multiple-award winning boutique hotel that takes pampering to a whole new level. As a resident of the Emporium, you’ll have access to all the hotel’s five-star facilities and services while living in a luxurious $2 million apartment that overlooks the Brisbane River. Now that sounds more like it!

A Home at the Emporium

The Residences at the Emporium are located in South Bank, Brisbane’s cultural enclave. This is where people come to eat a fine meal, visit the art gallery, or go for a stroll through the parklands and inner-city rainforest. The district is scattered with gracious homes, abundant greenspace and panoramic views of the Brisbane River and city centre. It’s simply a beautiful place to call home.

The prize apartment in draw 281 is an impeccable blend of elegance, comfort and sheer luxury. Along with a million-dollar view, the apartment has a professional-grade gourmet kitchen, a host of high-end electricals and appliances, and a sumptuous décor. The 160 square metres of luxurious living space includes two-and-a-half bathrooms, a terrific alfresco balcony and a large central living area. Whether you want to take an evening dip in the rooftop infinity pool or grab a bite in one of the onsite restaurants, you’ll be enjoying a millionaire lifestyle in Brisbane’s most prestigious new development.

This draw also has fantastic investment potential. If you rent out the apartment with all the furnishings in place, you can bring in an additional income of around $98,800 a year. Use that money to help pay off your existing mortgage, treat yourself to a fabulous holiday every year, or tuck it away for your retirement. Capitalize on your win immediately and invest the proceeds or sell in a few years and stand to realise an even bigger profit. Whether you move, rent or sell, it’s a $2 million windfall that could set you up for life!

Features of the $2 Million Apartment

Every inch of this luxurious apartment is artfully designed to accentuate its elegance, sophistication and contemporary styling. Warm timbered floors and trim, earth-toned furnishings against a neutral palette, and floor-to-ceiling glazing all bring a touch of refinement to a supremely welcoming home.
