That lit­tle bit ex­tra

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

THIS spa­cious, im­mac­u­lately pre­sented res­i­dence is at the end of Mitre Street over­look­ing the 5th green of Palmer Sea Reef Cham­pi­onship Golf Course. With a neigh­bour on one side only, there is a good deal of pri­vacy for own­ers to en­joy in this su­perb home which ex­udes tran­quil­ity and grace with a se­cu­rity sys­tem is in place with an in­ter­com at the gate for your added se­cu­rity and pri­vacy.

Im­me­di­ately ev­i­dent as you ap­proach the im­pres­sive bam­boo en­trance door is the Asian in­flu­ence. The Zen-styled gar­den with wave shaped tim­ber bridge, de­signed by a renowned Ja­panese land­scape ar­chi­tect, uses the 1200sqm al­lot­ment to full ad­van­tage – the high­light is strik­ing stonework with a cas­cad­ing wa­ter­fall, feed­ing a stream which flows to gourd-like shaped fish pond. The over­all ef­fect is ab­so­lutely de­light­ful.

One wing of the dwelling is re­served for bed­rooms with the other wing for the kitchen and din­ing area. The main lounge area (fea­tur­ing a sur­round sound sys­tem) looks out over a stun­ning pool to the glo­ri­ous golf course and moun­tain views. This ex­tra high 3m ceil­ing stud cre­ates a feel­ing of spa­cious­ness and light through­out the en­tire home with the din­ing area fea­tur­ing a cathe­dral pitched roof, in­creas­ing the over­all height again by al­most 2 me­tres – the ad­di­tional air­flow is also a plus.

The kitchen is an en­ter­tainer’s de­light with gourmet gran­ite topped benches with me­tal­lic two-pack fin­ish and an is­land bench and boast­ing Miele ap­pli­ances in­clud­ing steamer, mi­crowave, dish­washer and an ex­tra-wide oven. One of the four spa­cious bed­rooms (three of which have en­suites) has been exquisitely fit­ted out in a tra­di­tional Ja­panese style with tatami mats. All bath­rooms are fully tiled up to ceil­ing with tower style show­ers and each bath­room has a dif­fer­ent tile de­sign.
