Buyers expect something grand,” she said.“And in my own personal opinion, there’s nothing better than relaxing in a bathtub with bubbles and an awesome view.” Ms Goodger said a five-bedroom home on acreage on the market at 566 Reesville Rd, Maleny, had a perfect example of a tub with a view done right. This Kangaroo Point apartment has an open bathroom with river and city views.Ms Greene said her favourite was the master ensuite. “The bathtub has a vintage look, it’s big enough for two people and it has 4.5m high windows around the bath,” she said. “Being on nearly 100 acres, we don’t have the issue of neighbours to worry about. “We have two dachshunds and they like to join in the fun too.” Prestige property agent Christine Rudolph, of Ray White New Farm, said when it came to baths with views, the tub at 10/70 Bowen Tce, Newfarm was the best in Queensland. The new owners of 53 Macquarie St, Teneriffe, which sold for $5.236 million this year, can enjoy river views from their bath.Ms Rudolph said the bath with a view trend was inspired by luxury hotels from around the world. “People now want that in their homes too,” she said. “In the prestige end of the market, buyers want position, views and a superior quality of finishes.“But the two most important things for many buyers are kitchens and bathrooms that maximise the view corridor.“Most architects are clever enough to design bathrooms so that you can have that view but not be exposed to the rest of the world.” The stunning view from the bathroom at 10/170 Bowen Tce, New Farm.As one of the marketing agents behind the $6.15 million sale of the luxury penthouse earlier this year, she knows first-hand how stunning the bathroom is. “So much thought was put into making a visually spectacular bathroom that maximises that amazing view (of the Story Bridge and Brisbane River),” she said “The bathtub is stone, the floors are black granite and there is a handmade crystal chandelier made from white quartz crystals that have healing and calming properties.” Annie Green with daschunds Fast Eddie and Princess Daphne enjoy their tub with a view.
