Majestic from the street, state of the art luxury and liveability inside ...Entry to the home is via formal gardens, across LED lit steps within the fish pond, in front of the Kimono water feature creating a special ambience. From this point, you know you're about to enter a remarkable residence. This is truly one of the most amazing homes you will find in Townsville. Totally rebuilt in 2011, the home incorporates the very finest of technology for sound, entertainment, lighting, security, cooking - if it has been invented, you will find it here at 1 Escott Place.
All 5 bedrooms are oversized, have lovely views and lots of natural light, C-Bus, with sensor lights and motorised window coverings. The sumptuous master bedroom opens to the large private balcony overlooking the park and river - the perfect spot for your evening drink to end the day.
The three luxurious bathrooms are tiled floor to ceiling, have stone vanity tops, Villeroy and Bosch fixtures, temperature controlled blue/red lights for cold/hot water, and the toilets are separate.
The kitchen is nothing short of breathtaking. A stunning Ferrari red glass splash back defines the space and a solid granite waterfall-edge bench and back benches provide heaps of space for food preparation. All appliances are Miele, with the latest cooking techniques of induction, steam, barbecue and chef grill.
There are more than 25 gleaming white 2pak touch opening soft-close drawers, an integrated dishwasher, two huge sinks and LED strip lighting at floor and ceiling level adds a designer touch.
The dining, living and billiard areas are all open plan to the kitchen as is the wet bar and coffee prep area where you will find the ice maker and three wine fridges.
The third air-conditioned garage/workshop/gym opens to this area while the other double garage leads directly into the kitchen via the oversized pantry room. All garages have lots of natural light and the textured epoxy 2pak flooring makes this a great space for parties.
The cinema is accessed via two sound proofing doors and the room is entirely insulated so the kids can be watching their favourite concert at full volume and no sound can be heard outside. Needless to say, the sound in here is recording quality and its bunker-like construction would make it a great room in a cyclone.
Next to the cinema you will find the HQ of the house - a screen shows multiple views of the home for security, all sound and electric systems - essentially you can operate the entire home from this room (or your mobile device).
The landscaping surrounding the home and the pool area are lavish resort style. The pool can be controlled from inside the house, there are three fountains, blue, green or red lights, a magnet to soften the water and of course there is an auto leveller so you never need to top up or drain the water again. This area is totally private, and welcomes you to cool off in the pool, or to relax in the generous tiled area surrounding it
