The Courier-Mail - Property - - MARKET PLACE REALESTATE - CAS­SAN­DRA HOUGHTON

THIS triple-gabled Queens­lan­der boasts a charm­ing blend of clas­sic char­ac­ter ref­er­ences with sleek mod­ern ad­di­tions.

On a large 607sq mblock close to Clay­field’s shop­ping and din­ing precinct, the house has two lev­els of liv­ing and en­ter­tain­ment spa­ces, as well as a se­cluded re­sort-style pool and ter­race ar­eas in the gar­dens.

Sleep­ing ac­com­mo­da­tion con­sists of five bed­rooms, spread across both lev­els for space and pri­vacy.

Upon en­try into the up­per level, a spa­cious lounge room has rich pol­ished tim­ber floors. A gallery of char­ac­ter win­dows pro­vides abun­dant nat­u­ral light and views of the sur­round­ing sub­urb.

At the rear of the level is an open-plan kitchen and din­ing space. The kitchen of­fers a con­tem­po­rary in­te­rior de­sign by Sub­lime In­te­ri­ors, a range of Neff ap­pli­ances, sleek white cab­i­netry, a glass door pantry, bold blue colour ac­cents and an is­land break­fast bar.

There are also bi­fold doors open­ing to a large rear cov­ered deck over­look­ing the pool. This deck also fea­tures a built-in kitchen with Elec­trolux four­burner bar­be­cue.

The main bed­room sits at the front of the floor­plan. Fea­tures in­clude a bay win­dow seat, walk-in wardrobe and an en­suite with dual van­i­ties.

Two other bed­rooms on the level are ser­viced by a cen­tral bath­room with dual van­i­ties.

On the lower level of the house is a sec­ond liv­ing area flow­ing to the out­door en­ter­tain­ment space.

Also with ac­cess to the en­ter­tain­ment space is a room with a well-equipped bar and floor-to-ceil­ing glass bi­fold doors.

Over­look­ing the salt­wa­ter pool is a pavil­ion, as well as low­main­te­nance land­scap­ing.

Com­plet­ing the level are two bed­rooms, an of­fice, laun­dry and large bath­room.

The res­i­dence also fea­tures split-sys­tem air­con­di­tion­ing, ceil­ing fans, back-to-base se­cu­rity, a so­lar power sys­tem and dou­ble car­port.
