MILLIONAIRES ROW: Is this Toowoomba's biggest house?

WHEN first entering Kara View Court, it is hard to ignore the stunning home in lot five.

The impressive residence is framed with Table Top Mountain as a backdrop and draws on architecture from the great villas of Europe.

With its Spanish imported roof tiles, a detailed chimney and decorative corbels, the home can be admired from all angles.

The home is being constructed by multi award-winning builder Downs Designer Homes and was designed by internationally renowned architect John Simpson.

The home owners are a professional couple from Toowoomba and last year Downs Designer Homes owner Jeff Bubeck and his wife travelled to India with the clients to source unique materials.

"It's not that we don't source our materials locally because we certainly do but some items the clients were after just weren't available in our region," he said.

"The owners wanted to source them from overseas to make their house more authentic."

When guests first enter the home they are welcomed by a foyer tower with a seven metre high ceiling and arched windows.

To add to the enormity of the home it has oversized doors and ceilings throughout, as well as large window panels to let in streams of natural light.

The residence has five large bedrooms, with the main bedroom having access to a titled rooftop terrace, two kitchens, a games room complete with a bar, a gymnasium, a pool and spa, a lift and marble staircase.

The home owners wished to remain anonymous and not reveal the price and size of the home but Mr Bubeck said it was one of the largest homes he had built in his 27 years of business.

"It is a very stunning residence and there is so much detail that goes into all aspects of the home," he said.

"Once it is complete it will definitely be something I and the owners can be proud of."

Construction of the home is well ahead of schedule, with a slight delay waiting for materials being imported from overseas.
