WEL­COME to your own tran­quil par­adise.

Bob New­man and Barb Roberts bought their “pri­vate oasis” 11 years ago and were sold on it al­most in­stantly.

“We pulled up out the front and walked down the drive­way,” Mr New­man said.

“The rain­for­est ba­si­cally en­veloped the prop­erty and I just fell in love with the place.”

Set on a sprawl­ing 1.97ha block in Cur­rumbin Val­ley, the two-level res­i­dence fea­tures a va­ri­ety of unique crafted de­tails with tim­ber a prom­i­nent fix­ture through­out. One-of-a-kind cam­phor lau­rel bench tops are found in the kitchen and main bath­room while dis­tinc­tive stair­case stands out. An open plan kitchen, high pitched ceil­ing and ex­ten­sive pic­ture win­dows are found on the ground level as well as mul­ti­ple liv­ing and din­ing ar­eas, of­fice and laun­dry.

The sec­ond level fea­tures three bed­rooms and the main bed­room with walk through wardrobe and en­suite.

“We have ba­si­cally modernised it since we bought it,” Mr New­man said. “We painted it and added a fifth bed­room.”

He said he had many favourite fea­tures but sit­ting out on the back deck was one of the stand­outs.
