The Courier-Mail - Property - - MARKET PLACE REALESTATE - EL­IZ­A­BETH REN­NIE

WITH a stun­ning de­sign rem­i­nis­cent of a Swiss chalet, this five-bed­room res­i­dence of­fers lux­ury and com­fort.

Set on 11,030sq m with soar­ing views across sur­round­ing bush­land stretch­ing to Mt Coot-tha, this two-level house fea­tures a range of qual­ity in­te­rior de­sign el­e­ments.

Tim­ber is used ex­ten­sively through­out the prop­erty, fur­ther com­ple­ment­ing the pitched and cathe­dral ceil­ings, pol­ished brush­box floors and warm in­te­rior colour pal­ette.

Framed by gar­dens, the front fa­cade has two A-frame roofs, with the front door lead­ing through to a foyer and ad­join­ing tea room.

To the left of the en­try there is a liv­ing room com­plete with large tim­ber beams, a fire­place and glass doors open­ing to a wrap­around deck, which over­looks the la­goon-style pool on one side and sur­round­ing bush­land val­leys on the other.

A man­i­cured path­way leads from here through to the ten­nis court.

From the tea room there is the chef’s kitchen, which boasts a gran­ite is­land bench, a range of Miele ap­pli­ances and a range­hood.

Slid­ing glass and tim­ber doors open on one side of the kitchen out to the cov­ered wrap­around deck, pro­vid­ing a seam­less in­te­gra­tion of in­door and out­door liv­ing.

A din­ing room is ad­ja­cent, in­clud­ing a gen­uine leaf wall­pa­per fea­ture wall and glass doors open­ing to a sec­ond deck.

The re­main­der of this level is oc­cu­pied by the sleep­ing ac­com­mo­da­tion, with two nearby bed­rooms fea­tur­ing built-in wardrobes. They are ser­viced by a cen­tral bath­room.

One of th­ese bed­rooms also has ac­cess to the sec­ond deck.

The main suite boasts a walk-in wardrobe and an en­suite with shower, while a pri­vate deck of­fers stun­ning views of the sur­round­ing green­ery.

De­scend­ing to the fully ren­o­vated lower level via an in­ter­nal stair­case, there is a large fam­ily room with a builtin wet bar and slid­ing glass doors lead­ing to a pa­tio.

This pa­tio stretches out along one side of the house, with mul­ti­ple ac­cess points avail­able from dif­fer­ent rooms.

A li­brary with built-in shelv­ing leads through to a sauna, while a nearby guest bed­room flows to a dual-en­try bath­room and sit­ting area.

A laun­dry and a wine cel­lar are also on this level, in ad­di­tion to in­te­rior ac­cess to the four-car garage, which in­cludes a bath­room and a workshop.

As a fi­nal touch, this res­i­dence fur­ther of­fers a loft level, com­pris­ing a bed­room with built-in wardrobes and a bal­cony.

Built in 1977, this prop­erty has rain­wa­ter tanks to­talling 110,000L and en­joys prox­im­ity to schools, pub­lic trans­port op­tions and nearby shops.
