Starring on Gordon St tonight
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.
