A Private ParadiseA haven of privacy and tranquility, this exceptional property resides on 3 acres approximately of lush, elevated, family friendly grounds.
Approaching via a private tree lined drive, a wonderful sense of anticipation is rewarded with an expansive residence, designed to take full advantage of its ideal North-East orientation and breath-taking views.
Inspired by Pavilion style architecture, the home exudes an understated elegance and offers an extensive choice of living and entertaining areas. Relaxed family entertainment, intimate gatherings and grand scale events alike can all be supported by the clever design.
Upon arrival, guests are greeted by a beautiful arbor, adorned by a crimson flowering vine, leading to the central outdoor pavilion. This outdoor pavilion is an ideal place to read, relax and overlook the beautiful gardens. To the left of the pavilion is the family recreation room and to the right is the private master wing.
The large recreation room features painted concrete flooring for easy family living and built in seating with clever storage. It showcases a raked, timber-lined ceiling with exposed beams and enjoys an easy flow to the outdoors and central pavilion. Offering great versatility, the recreation room is also ideal for guest accommodation or as a billiard room. For convenience, an elegant powder room with Calacatta marble vanity is located within the recreation room.
The main living pavilion is gracious and expansive. It is characterized by exceptionally wide recycled timber floor boards. Central to the lounge room is a large open fireplace showcasing floor to ceiling stone and a marble mantle. The adjoining dining room is very generous and can easily accommodate seating for more than 12 guests. Both rooms enjoy an ideal north-east orientation and capture beautiful breezes and stunning views of the gorgeous grounds and the mountains beyond.
Oversized timber framed doors slide away to create a seamless flow from inside to the outdoor terrace. It is on stepping out to the travertine tiled terrace that the incredible elevation and true beauty of this property is fully appreciated. A simply breathtaking view is presented over Brookfield and beyond to Mt Coo-tha, The Gap and capturing glimpses of Brisbane City. The lush, green lawn adjoins the terrace and gently slopes to an enormous, sparkling swimming pool.
The large open plan kitchen adjoins the dining room and features classic white cabinetry with a combination of Calacatta marble and stainless steel bench tops. A custom made commercial grade fridge is included along with a comprehensive range of stainless steel European appliances. The kitchen is cleverly positioned to not only provide access to the dining room and outdoor entertaining terrace, but also allow for supervision of the recreation room and central outdoor pavilion.
A separate wing is reserved for the family bedrooms. There are three bedrooms each enjoying their own beautiful views of the grounds and each equipped with built-in-robes, screens and ceiling fans. They are serviced by a family bathroom featuring large shower recess and rustic timber floor.
Occupying its own pavilion, the huge master retreat comprises a very generous bedroom and ensuite, an enormous walk-in-robe, private study and large library/sitting room. The bedroom, with raked ceiling and exposed beams, opens on three sides to beautiful views of the grounds and gardens. The adjoining ensuite opens to a private courtyard featuring stone wall and bamboo garden with the added luxury of an outdoor shower.
Offering absolute serenity and seclusion, the property hosts both low maintenance gardens and spectacular mature trees including Jacaranda, Poinciana and Frangipani and abundant birdlife. The sprawling family-friendly grounds offer an idyllic lifestyle for kids to raise chickens, host pool parties and enjoy swings, trampoline and jungle gyms.
The location offers easy access to the Brookfield Showgrounds, Farmers Markets, Pony Club and the Brookfield Garden Centre and Café. This residence is more than a home, it is a lifestyle. It affords peace and privacy with the added advantage of providing the new owners with the opportunity to become part of the energetic Brookfield community.
