THIS chic and stylish res­i­dence was run­ner-up in the small lot cat­e­gory of the 2009 Queens­land Hous­ing In­dus­try As­so­ci­a­tion home of the year awards.

Five kilo­me­tres from Bris­bane’s CBD, the res­i­dence on a 604sq m cor­ner plot is the epit­ome of cut­ting-edge liv­ing.

Soar­ing ceil­ings pro­vide a light and spa­cious abode and the use of mar­ble and porce­lain tiles en­hances the de­sign.

Be­yond an outer wall and en­try gate is a ter­race, which can also be ac­cessed from a three-car garage with a work­shop.

The main en­try on the ground floor leads into a large open-plan de­sign boast­ing a lounge and din­ing room di­vided by a kitchen.

The kitchen fea­tures stain­less steel ap­pli­ances in­clud­ing an in­duc­tion cook­top and ex­ten­sive in­te­grated white two-pack cab­i­netry. There is back lighting, stone bench­tops, a pantry and an is­land bench with break­fast bar.

Pol­ished Black­butt tim­ber floor­ing ex­tends throughout the open-plan de­sign.

The din­ing room has an ex­ten­sive use of glass pro­vid­ing nat­u­ral light, with bi­fold doors lead­ing to a court­yard in­clud­ing an es­tab­lished gar­den with lawn, trees and shrubs.

Fea­tured in the lounge is a voided roof space near a tim­ber stair­case to the up­per level and a full wall of slid­ing glass doors open­ing to the ter­race and over­look­ing the pool, which is pro­tected by glass balustrades and boasts a drop down out­door pro­jec­tor.

Also on this level is an of­fice with an en­trance, pow­der room and a laun­dry which leads to a bath­room with a shower.

The main bed­room on the up­per level is at the front of the floor­plan and leads through slid­ing glass doors to a bal­cony. There is also a walk-in wardrobe and en­suite with twin van­i­ties, floor-to-ceil­ing tiles and a dou­ble shower.

At the rear of the floor­plan are two bed­rooms with built-in wardrobes and a nearby bed­room, also with built-in wardrobes, leads to a bal­cony to the left of the floor­plan.

Also on the up­per level is a fifth bed­room boast­ing built-in wardrobes and an ad­ja­cent bath­room with twin van­i­ties and a sep­a­rate bath­tub and shower.
