Displaying mid-century modernism throughout, this beautiful four bedroom home has been architecturally reimagined by Robyn Booth to deliver a characteristic living experience. Melding the old and the new, this rejuvenated Bulimba abode exhibits strong geometric lines, opulent inclusions and a physical connection with nature and the outside world.
Positioned with a north facing aspect, all living areas are graced with natural light provided by extensive glazing throughout. The design defines spaces for relaxation and living between the original Queenslander and the rear extension, respectively. This is emphasised by 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 granite bench top, featuring a breakfast bar and expansive butler’s pantry. The beautiful master suite has been appointed as a separate sanctum, offering a walk-in robe, ensuite, attached office and direct access to a private outdoor area. There are three further bedrooms, with one boasting its own ensuite and walk-in robe.
Outside engages a seamless introduction to alfresco living. An expansive timber deck 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 large lawn leads to the centre of the property, where a solar heated 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 exterior. Added features include an additional study, cellar, library, media room, ducted and split system air conditioning and BOSE lifestyle integrated sound system throughout.
