Located in the riverside suburb of Highgate Hill, Montis brings a bold character and contemporary flair to one of Brisbane’s most coveted postcodes. Estia Constructions transformed the vacant block at 169 Dornoch Terrace into a three-storey architectural masterpiece that embraces its leafy surrounds and offers the ideal retreat for an inner-city lifestyle.

Montis is striking from the outset, with a stone facade, Knotwood timber slat garage door and monument hiland tray cladding. The confident ambience continues inside, where a Manhattan-inspired living space provides a commanding welcome to the home via the second-floor entrance. The open-plan kitchen is dark and sophisticated, with a black quartzite countertop and splashback, black fixtures and double-cylinder kitchen rangehood. The white dolomite island bench is ideal for entertaining guests, while the secluded butler’s pantry makes hosting dinner parties easier than ever.




Take the elevator downstairs to discover three decadent bedrooms, including the resort-inspired master. The master retreat features a lavish walk-in-robe fit for royalty and an ensuite that boasts floor-to-ceiling limestone, a free-standing bath, gold feature fixtures and double limestone vanity. Ensuites attached to the other bedrooms are just as luxurious, with crisp white cabinetry and matte black fixtures.

The third-floor fourth bedroom overlooks the inviting pool, tiled terrace, and carefully manicured roof garden. This outdoor space is replete with a bar and barbeque space, perfect for soaking in the signature Highgate Hill sunsets or green, leafy surrounds.

Montis offers the features and details for a luxurious family lifestyle. The ten- seater private cinema comes complete with electronically controlled deluxe recliner chairs, automated strip lighting and automated AC – All controlled via your central remote.


Many Highgate Hill projects set out to preserve the suburb’s traditional beauty. While Estia Constructions incorporated the class and elegance of a by-gone era, Montis also interjects an inherently modern and forward-thinking design. The unique combination of old and new ensures it draws parallels with the elusive elegance of New York.

Sophistication and style underpin every aspect of the property, with an eclectic mix of different textures, colours and materials used throughout the space. All selections were hand-picked to ensure a truly unique character, including everything from stone walls and marble benchtops to herringbone flooring and bespoke tiling.

In true New York style, the property brings people together and encourages time with family and friends. Host elaborate dinner parties with your premium grade kitchen, indulge your loved ones with a glass of wine at your rooftop bar or embrace the simple joys of time spent in company from the comfort of your private cinema. Montis is your canvas for a lifestyle brimming with joy and love.

Despite drawing inspiration from the past, the property is undoubtedly future-focussed. The smart-home is completely automated, with voice activation and remote access. Solar panels are also an opportunity to capitalise on Brisbane’s year-round sunshine, while the finishes, gardens and materials are all designed for minimal maintenance.

Montis is a home like no other. It’s a place where memories are made, architectural beauty is embraced, and life is overflowing with goodness.
