An urban retreat to revel in
BOASTING a wealth of luxurious classical features is Oriel House, a two-level, 600sq m Queenslander featuring glass chandeliers, ornate cornicing, timber fretwork, decorative breezeways, elegant ensuites, and polished timber floors.
This luxury is set within the peaceful calm of 1.95 hectares of bushland while multiple outdoor areas allow residents to enjoy the leafy scenery.
Modern comforts have not been forgotten with stainless steel appliances, an inground pool, and airconditioning.
A curving driveway leads to the home, past a meadow framed by Bunya Pine trees as well as ample bushland.
Timber butterfly stairs reach to the home’s upper level and front porch.
The main hallway sees a carpeted bedroom to one side featuring stained glass windows and a private balcony.
This bedroom enjoys a walk-in wardrobe and an ensuite with a shower and separate clawfoot bathtub.
Nearby is a powder room, and opposite the hallway is an elegant formal living and dining room, featuring three magnificent glass chandeliers and ornate cornicing.
Flowing from the dining room is the kitchen with a massive island bench and breakfast bar, gas cooktop, stainless steel rangehood and oven, integrated dishwasher, wall-mounted flat screen television, and ample cabinetry.
Bi-fold doors open from the kitchen to a timber deck looking to the pool and courtyard below, and also adjoining the kitchen is a laundry.
Beyond the formal living area is a carpeted bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe and an ensuite with a clawfoot bathtub.
To the other side of the living area is the impressive carpeted main bedroom, which enjoys a small reading room or retreat.
The bedroom also boasts a massive walk-in wardrobe and a private timber deck as well as a large ensuite complete with big spa bath, double shower, and two toilets.
The retreat and formal living room flow to a tiled, partially covered patio with timber fretwork and lush bushland borders.
Stairs lead from the patio to secluded gardens at the rear of the home, which include a water feature, lawns, and terraced steps.
The home’s lower level can be reached via these gardens and also via internal stairs on the upper level.
On the lower level is a family room with parquetry floors while nearby is a powder room and a living and dining area with a kitchenette and bar.
This area leads through glass and timber doors to the inground pool, tiled courtyard, and gardens as well as to a carpeted bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe and an ensuite with a separate bathtub and shower.
A large room on this level with mirrored built-in wardrobes is currently being utilised as a gym and also enjoys timber and glass doors leading to the outdoor areas.
