This treehouse-like home, located in a protected bushland setting in Mitchelton, is set on top of a hill. Appearing as though it has floated down to land carefully among mature bushland, the architect’s design captures the most extraordinary sweeping views from the Glass House Mountains to Brisbane Airport, and across the bay to the sands of Moreton Island.

The easy living four-bedroom family home is cleverly configured to include a lower-level self-contained apartment. A soaring open-plan living and dining level sprawls out to a large deck from which sugar gliders, stone bush curlews, wallabies and even a lace monitor are regularly spotted. The home features underfloor heating, a gas fireplace, tinted and glazed windows for those cool winter months and a 7.5 metre raked ceiling.  This flawless home is surrounded by protected bushland on a low maintenance property. Sit back and relax and enjoy the stunning views from the outdoor hot-tub, or by the fire in the open plan living area.

Constructed to a commercial-grade standard, this easy living steel and glass contemporary retreat is cleverly configured to create elegance in the bush. Less than 20 minutes to the airport and major links to the Gold and Sunshine Coasts, as well as a short drive to popular Blackwood Street cafes and shops. The home provides unexpected views from its position and displays utter elegance and cutting edge design. To meet the requests of the environmental department the builders have kept as much of the native bushland as possible, creating a once in a lifetime backdrop for a Brisbane home.
