An ur­ban re­treat to revel in

The Courier-Mail - Property - - MARKETPLACE - Char­lotte Du­rut

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.
