Found on a road in Bayside Brisbane, is the secluded though imposing home. The Esplanade runs alongside the water’s edge and the homes that grace the other side are not only exclusive, but also sun filled. “It is like a private road,” says Ray White Wellington Point agent June Cranage. “And the homes have privacy while enjoying an ideal and open location.”

The two-level home takes advantage of all this, and also offers mesmerising views that will never be built out, guaranteeing comfortable living. It is hard to determine which blue is more tranquil, the blue sky that soars high in view, or the tranquil outstretch of sea. A wide array of wild birds and seaside creatures add texture and excitement into the landscape, but with walls of glass and large deck areas, it is a delight to try and keep count. Five large bedrooms are showcased, with a master suite on the ground level spreading out to include a large walk-in wardrobe, ensuite and private deck.

Upstairs and another even larger main bedroom suite is found, with access to the larger, house wide deck. Clearly designed to allow family and guests to enjoy a relaxed and tropical lifestyle, the home enhances its natural surroundings with high ceilings, multiple chances to move to the outdoors, and crisp, white finishes softened by light timber accents. The open plan kitchen features a large counter top island which outlooks onto the deck and the ocean, perfect for a breakfast bar.
