The ultimate blend of character and luxury, solitude and sociability
Auction Location: Onsite.
At first glimpse this looks like another charming worker’s cottage. Once inside however, this renovated home opens up to a spacious and contemporary addition that seamlessly blends old and new. Divided into two pavilions connected by a bridge, it offers remarkable and flexible living arrangements for large or extended families or as an extra income stream such as Airbnb.
Not only do you have the rarity of virtually two houses in one, this unique home also possesses a lifestyle combination of the most desirable elements – exceptional location and easy accessibility, distinctive design, luxury and comfort – all of which enhance the enjoyment of this property as a year-round home that celebrates our great Queensland climate.
The newer, standalone pavilion provides a spacious, modern open plan living hub overlooking a private, central courtyard. This tranquil oasis, screened by a colonnade of beautiful trees, is where a stunning, crystal blue salt water swimming pool, complete with an overhead waterfall, takes centre If your idea of total relaxation is a few lazy laps or merely languishing by the pool with a cocktail in hand, this fabulous courtyard retreat will have you recreating that holiday vibe at home. With an outdoor oasis such as this, there’s no reason to leave the house on weekends.
High ceilings, reflective polished floors and walls of glazing flood the interiors with natural light while abundant windows can be opened to allow caressing breezes to waft through the entire home. Window boxes of pastel Bougainvillea in each wing add a touch of whimsy and provide a colourful outlook and connection to the outdoors.
The daily family meals will be a joy to prepare in the gas kitchen complete with every modern amenity and a marble topped, centre-island large enough to seat six. A comfy, custom-built banquette dining space is incorporated in the combined living zone while a more formal, conservatory-style dining space is suspended above the courtyard making for some memorable dinner parties.
Offering incredible separation, the beautifully renovated, original wing, incorporates two bedrooms including the master suite opening onto the front porch through French doors and inclusive of a walk-in robe/dressing room (or 5th bedroom) and a classic, yet chic two-way ensuite with claw-foot bath. There is also a formal sitting room opening to a spacious deck looking across the void to the pavilion. All of the bedrooms are complete with air conditioning, are large and airy. Two, located on the lower level, open directly to the courtyard and pool supported by a convenient and generous bathroom with a curvaceous large shower enclosure.
