New take on tra­di­tion


A MOD­ERN take on tra­di­tional de­sign al­lows this stylish Queens­lan­der to take ad­van­tage of its 810sq m site to bask in warm north­east vis­tas that showcase its ar­ray of flow­ing liv­ing ar­eas.

Ad­di­tional stand­outs in­clude a pool, pol­ished hard­wood floor­ing, 310sq m of in­door floorspace and an ad­dress within 10km of Bris­bane’s CBD.

Set be­hind ma­sonry and tim­ber fences, clas­sic arch­way balustrades are vis­i­ble from a porch en­try where there is a sit­ting area over­look­ing its front lawns and gar­dens.

Once inside, pol­ished hard­wood floor­ing makes an im­me­di­ate im­pres­sion, while neu­tral colours com­bine with down­lights, cre­at­ing a warm and roomy feel.

The de­signer kitchen is the house’s hub, open­ing to ex­pan­sive liv­ing ar­eas and fea­tur­ing a but­ler’s pantry, stone bench­tops, white cabi­netry and qual­ity stain­less-steel ap­pli­ances.

It looks to ad­join­ing din­ing and lounge ar­eas where glass slid­ing doors open to the prop­erty’s rear out­door spa­ces, where both cov­ered and un­cov­ered en­vi­ron­ments can be found set around a pool.

Glass fenc­ing al­lows for un­in­ter­rupted view­ing of this area, while ma­sonry re­tain­ing walls and high tim­ber fenc­ing en­sure pri­vacy is main­tained.

Back at the en­try area are a bed­room with en­suite and a garage, while an in­ter­nal stair­well at the prop­erty’s cen­tral liv­ing zone links to up­per-level rum­pus and sit­ting rooms.

Here, the warm and bright styling themes from the ground level are main­tained, and they com­ple­ment an ad­join­ing mod­ern bath­room and a north­east-fac­ing ve­randa.

The main bed­room has a large walk-in wardrobe, along with a dou­ble van­ity and dou­ble-shower en­suite.

At the rear of this level are three bed­rooms with built-in wardrobes, while a se­cu­rity sys­tem and air­con­di­tion­ing are ad­di­tional fea­tures.

The house is close to Ke­dron Brook park­lands, walk­ing tracks and bike paths.
