Timeless sense of beauty, inspiration
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.
