Nestled in leafy Coorparoo, this Americana inspired home is contemporary elegance at its finest. Bright white accents are striking against the powerful yet elegant cool-toned grey that dominates this home’s facade. Staggered pitched gables mirror the sweeping Brisbane cityscape beyond. Beneath the contemporary facade ruled by bold paints, old-world charm sneaks in through the stone chimney. 

Stone accents continue inside, providing visual intrigue in the clean-cut modern home. Towering above, the stone-clad fireplace stretches across both levels of the mezzanine-styled home. Crisp grey walls guide the wandering eye upwards to the incredible ceilings that soar above at almost four-meters high. Natural light floods the lofty home, spilling through to both levels and illuminating the fresh white detailed accents. Elegant wainscotting lines the walls, adding timeless and understated elegance to the modern home. A labour of love, coffered details adorn the mezzanine ceiling, only adding elegance and charm to the home. 

Upstairs, the master bedroom glows under the abundance of natural light streaming in through the wall-length French doors. Through the expansive walk-in-robe is a sumptuous ensuite with a double shower and deep free-standing bath. 

The modern kitchen not only borrows elements from the shaker-style kitchens that have dominated new-build over the past decade, but also charming farmhouse chic elements, too. A glorious sliding barn door partitions the butler’s pantry from the kitchen, while a grand island bench centres the kitchen with its intricate detailing and stone top. Dark stone tiles stand to attention in a chevron pattern and add an element of modernity that is striking against the light stone counter-tops. Two covered patios reside just beyond the duplicate wall-length sliding glass doors, leading from the kitchen and the living area. These entertaining areas beg for long lunches under the fading afternoon sun, watching as guests slash in the sparkling salt-water pool.
