Cre­ate a last­ing im­pres­sion


BOAST­ING a su­pe­rior de­sign and im­pres­sive fin­ish, this con­tem­po­rary res­i­dence flows across one split level.

The prop­erty was de­signed by Bris­bane ar­chi­tect Shaun Lock­yer and fo­cuses on mod­ern el­e­ments and sus­tain­abil­ity.

There is a spa­cious and light­filled in­te­rior thanks to large ar­eas of glass.

Pol­ished tal­low­wood floor­boards and tim­ber ceil­ings were re­claimed from the Horni­brook Bridge at Bram­ble Bay in Queens­land.

Other stylish fixtures and fit­tings in­clude traver­tine and slate tiles, cedar cladding, rose­wood doors and trim, and a work­ing sand­stone fire­place in the main liv­ing area.

At the front of the res­i­dence is a small es­tab­lished gar­den with lawn and shrubs.

Be­yond an en­try porch is a foyer with in­ter­nal ac­cess to a two-car garage.

On the north­ern side of the floor­plan is a sep­a­rate wing fea­tur­ing two bed­rooms.

The floor­plan flows to the right of the foyer and past a pow­der room to the wing.

The two bed­rooms have built-in wardrobes and are ser­viced by a bath­room with a shower.

Ahead of the foyer is an open-plan lay­out with a din­ing room fea­tur­ing tim­ber and glass slid­ing doors lead­ing to a north­ern-fac­ing cov­ered deck look­ing to the back­yard.

A kitchen also looks to the deck and has bi­fold doors open­ing to the deck.

The kitchen fea­tures co­rian bench­tops, ex­ten­sive cab­i­netry, an is­land bench with break­fast bar and stain­less-steel ap­pli­ances, in­clud­ing a Miele steam oven and Billi hot and cold tap.

Nearby is a liv­ing room, also with ac­cess to the deck through tim­ber and glass slid­ing doors. The space also has a fire­place. Ad­ja­cent is an of­fice screened by slid­ing doors.

At the rear of the floor­plan is the main bed­room, fea­tur­ing slid­ing glass doors lead­ing to a wrap­around deck with views to the north and west.

A walk-in wardrobe leads to an en­suite fea­tur­ing twin van­i­ties, a stand-alone bath­tub, shower and traver­tine tiles.

Tim­ber floor­ing ex­tends through­out the liv­ing ar­eas of the home, with car­pet floor­ing in the bed­rooms.

Other fea­tures of the res­i­dence, set on an 804sq m block, in­clude au­to­mated blinds and cur­tains, a built-in safe, ducted air­con­di­tion­ing, ceil­ing fans and 2.21kW so­lar pan­els with so­lar hot wa­ter and gas booster.

There is also a 5000L wa­ter tank and au­to­matic sprin­klers.

Seven Hills Bush Re­serve is nearby.
