A PROMINENT Bayside site with Moreton Bay outlook helps this 3588sq m property offer a timeless style befitting its seaside setting.
Built in the 1920s for a retired ship captain, Moreton House has been extensively refurbished and restored over the years, to the point where it now offers a considered balance of character, elegance and luxury.
Its outdoors boast landscaped gardens, a pool, covered and uncovered living areas and impressive Moreton Bay views from many vantage points.
The house is set behind wrought iron gates, and at the end of a long driveway, ensuring privacy, while it is less than 2km from train and public transport routes and 23km from the city.
The main entrance leads from the driveway to the property’s left, arriving at the ocean-facing front of the house and its grand portico entry.
Inside, timber floors and light colours create a warm feel, because all central living spaces link to outdoor patios, ocean views and natural light are plentiful.
A modern kitchen with marble benchtops and a range of commercial fittings, including gas oven, rangehood, window bench seat and storage, caters to the home chef, and links conveniently with the adjoining living space.
Set off this at one side is a sitting room and study, while meal and more formal dining rooms connect with the kitchen’s patio-facing front.
A timber stairwell at the centre of this space leads to an upper level, featuring most of the home’s bedrooms.
An entire wing is set aside for the main suite, complete with two walk-in wardrobes and two ensuites – one of which has double toilets – while additional storage, a bathroom, a study and two more bedrooms complete this level.
On the ground level at the property’s street-facing side is a guest residence with built-in wardrobe and an ensuite. A sauna adjoins this space, while other features of this property include a garden room and cellar.
