Contemporary style meets traditional Queenslander at this five bedroom family home, cleverly melding conventional flair, natural materials and modern functionality. From the traditional grey-and-white frontage that presides over Thynne Avenue, to the two floors of luxury interiors within, every inch of this marvelous property has been crafted to complement family living.
The interior resonates with rich traditional details, including polished timber flooring, VJ walls, Flemish glass windows, French doors and high ceilings. An array of modern appointments begin a quiet conversation between style and practicality, and include pendant lighting, stainless steel ceiling fans and timber details.
Entering through the lead-light door on the upper level, traditional details draw towards the central living area of the home. The contemporary, open floor-plan encompasses the lounge and dining space, encouraging family gatherings. A gourmet kitchen sits adjacent, framed by pivot windows, and spoiling the modern family with quality appliances, stone benches and extensive cabinetry. From the living spaces, a vast entertaining deck extends out to the rear yard, offering a lush aspect of the sub-tropical 817m2 of gardens and lawn below.
The traditional layout of the upper floor also hosts three spacious bedrooms, all with built-in robes and luxurious, plush wool carpets. The master suite boasts a walk-in robe, with direct access via French doors to the front patio, and easy access to the top floor bathroom, complete with traditional tiling, toilet and shower.
A timber staircase leads from the living area to the lower level of the home, designed as the perfect guest quarters or teenage retreat. Two additional bedrooms, one perfect for use as a home office, are serviced by a powder room and additional large bathroom with freestanding bath and stone vanity. The contemporary lower floor is complete with a tiled rumpus room and laundry.
From the rumpus, a second alfresco entertaining area extends outward - a stunning composition of timber ceilings, concrete and lush surrounds. The adjoining lawn is traced by manicured gardens that gently roll towards the sparkling in-ground pool. Tucked away privately at the very rear of the property, the pool is bordered by a sundeck and gazebo, perfect for relaxed afternoons with the family.
