Time­less sense of beauty, in­spi­ra­tion

The Courier-Mail - Property - - COASTAL & REGIONAL - STEPHEN NADIN

THIS Cape Cod-in­spired prop­erty com­bines char­ac­ter and time­less el­e­gance.

Set amid land­scaped grounds, and boasting More­ton Bay views, the prop­erty is in the heart of Bris­bane’s bay­side and com­bines lux­u­ri­ous fin­ishes with an el­e­gant de­sign.

Pri­vacy is en­sured, with the house set back from the street be­hind wrought-iron gates, ma­sonry and tim­ber fenc­ing.

A state­ment is made from the por­tico en­try, where a paved path leads from a five-car garage area to the prop­erty’s ocean-fac­ing front, past cropped hedges and be­side a pool, al­low­ing for the grounds’ ex­panse and ex­ter­nal living ar­eas to be fully ap­pre­ci­ated.

A pa­tio is set by the pool, while paved cov­ered and un­cov­ered out­door living ar­eas wrap the lower level. Th­ese also ac­cess a guest flat with en­suite and sauna.

Or­nate ceil­ings and pol­ished floors stand out as in­clu­sions from its 1920s con­struc­tion, when a re­tired ship’s cap­tain built what be­came the aptly named More­ton House.

The kitchen of­fers a range of com­mer­cial ap­pli­ances, in­clud­ing a dou­ble gas oven, while high-end cab­i­netry, fea­ture lights and mar­ble bench­tops add a sense of luxury to the culi­nary space.

There is a wine cel­lar and study, while living, dining and sit­ting rooms com­plete this level.

The up­per storey of the house fea­tures two bed­rooms with built-in wardrobes, as well as a study and a bath­room.

Nearby is the main suite, which in­cludes two en­suites and a spa­cious walk-in wardrobe.
