This bushland retreat in Brooklet blurs the lines between indoor and outdoor living. This home will have you at ease from the moment you step through the front door. The residence is split between the main home and a studio flat that provides extra space for families and entertaining. The polished concrete floors combine with oversized windows and a neutral colour palette to create a home that sinks into its picturesque surrounds and feels bright and welcoming.

The main residence is centred around an open-plan kitchen, dining, lounge and living zone. A vaulted ceiling draws natural light into the space. The home chef can get creative with stainless steel appliances and a gas cook-top. Sweeping timber and stone benchtops and a breakfast bar finish the space, giving ample room to create freely. The kitchen is complemented with a large vegetable garden outside that beckons the use of fresh produce. Servery windows open into the gorgeous and airy summer room where you can relax among the lush surrounds or step out and soak in the sunshine on the wrap-around deck.

Set in its own wing behind the library sits the master suite, which opens onto the deck. The glass sliding doors illuminate the room and provide a picturesque view of the foliage outside. The master suite boasts an open, walk-through robe and ensuite.   The main residence also holds a study and two secondary bedrooms that enjoy easy access to the main bathroom.

The separate, self-contained studio is a short walk from the main residence. Inside is an open-plan living area with a kitchen and lounge that are nestled under a soaring vaulted ceiling and exposed beams. The studio has its own covered patio and separate parking.

This residency is set on a large property with lush mature gardens and native bushland. A walking path tracks through the rainforest and over a creek flowing through the middle of the property. Outside the living quarters is a garage, workshop and a paved fire pit area that is perfect for gathering on cold winter nights.
