Imagine the reaction of your guests when you greet them at the glass front door. First, perhaps canapes in the sunlit reception room or on the front deck, surrounded by palms and gazing down at the resort style pool and the majestic white gums beyond. As one remarked, “Magical … something close to paradise”.
Next, through the French style swing doors set in the bay windows to the spacious formal lounge. Then on to the dining room, or through the wide glass doors to eat al fresco on the rear verandah.
The kitchen, ideally placed, enhances the dream: imported Italian granite worktops, an English 7 burner, 4 oven masterpiece and a period English double porcelain sink.
The bedrooms, family room and services are located on the other side of a wide central hallway, finishing with the original “Chambre de Bonne” (maid’s quarters) at the rear.
Built on the Southport seafront in the 19th century, relocated to Brisbane in the 20th, this is an extraordinary up-market house for the aspiring senior executive with a family. Soaring high ceilings, large garage (4 cars), close to Ambrose Treacy and other private and public schools, and plenty of room for games in the garden, you can live the dream.
