Architecturally reimagined Bulimba family home on 1012m2

Displaying mid-century modernism in every space, this beautiful four bedroom home has undergone renovations by architect Robyn Booth to deliver a family living experience with no equal. Gracefully melding the old and the new, this rejuvenated slice of Bulimba exhibits strong geometric lines, opulent inclusions and a physical connection with nature and the world outside.

Positioned with a north facing aspect, all living areas are graced with natural light and gentle river breezes provided by extensive glazing throughout. The design defines spaces for relaxation and living between the original Queenslander and the rear extension, respectively. All aspects of the interior feature an emphasis on tactile materiality, with timber slatting, plush carpet, rich tiling and quality cabinetry.

The heart of the home features a contemporary open plan living and dining area, edged by verdant views of landscaped gardens. A gorgeous galley kitchen has been artfully appointed for the modern chef, complete with Miele induction cooktop, Liebherr fridge and dual ovens. Family dining is fully provisioned with a 4.5m granite bench top with breakfast bar and expansive butler's pantry with additional fridge. A separate office connects to the kitchen.

Outside, engage in a seamless introduction to alfresco living that employs both context and climate. An expansive and covered timber deck seemingly grows out of the lush foliage that surrounds the home. Professionally landscaped by Steven Clegg, this collection of subtropical and native gardens frame an outdoor fireplace and concrete seating area with timber feature ceiling. A 200m2 lawn leads around to the centre of the property, where a solar heated 16.67m lap pool flows beneath the extension, creating a stunning contrast of sparkling blues and industrial lines. A concourse gym area, outdoor shower and toilet complete this matchless exterior.

The beautiful master suite has been appointed as a separate sanctum, offering parents a walk-in robe, ensuite, attached office and direct access to a private outdoor area. One other bedroom boasts its own ensuite and walk-in robe, while the remaining two bedrooms lie in close proximity to a shared bathroom with separate toilet.

Added features include an additional study, cellar, library, media room, ducted and split system air conditioning and BOSE lifestyle integrated sound system throughout. For accessibility and peace of mind, enjoy access to a 9,500L water tank, generous store rooms, garden and full security system with intercom. A secure garage with parking for two cars, plus additional off-street parking, completes the home.
