It takes a special kind of owner to see a property like this and choose to restore rather than rebuild. Luckily, I had just such owners because the results of this ground-up renovation are nothing short of remarkable. From painstakingly hand stripping the original casement windows to discovering original timber floors and VJ walls to restore, this three-bedroom Queenslander has kept its original character and has still been given more modern luxury than most new builds. Situated in the beautiful Bayside of Brighton and backing onto a nature reserve, this is one property you won’t want to miss.
This is an impressive home to admire from the street, raised to provide the new owner with the option of building under and doubling the floor plan. The 6m wide carport easily accommodates two vehicles, and the stunning hand-crafted timber stairs look just how they would have when the home was originally built.
Once you step inside, automated lighting, ducted air con and more can all be preset from your phone… you can even control the blinds on the rear deck and set the underfloor heating in the bathroom! The gorgeous timber floors offer a warm welcome with a hi-gloss finish, and the owners have carefully selected cornicing and skirting to compliment the VJ walls. The front of the home provides a light-filled sitting area and home office to one side. To the other, a beautiful bedroom with a box seat under original casement windows.
The main living and dining area shows off designer lighting and fans, with tones of grey and cream creating a contemporary atmosphere that blends with the original character. The family bathroom close by has exquisite tiling, a deep soak bath and a monsoon shower in an open wet area design.
For the entertainer and budding chef in you, wait until you feast your eyes on this magnificent kitchen. Not only does it offer quality cabinetry, five burner gas stove and square set, matt black sink and tapware, but on the other side of the servery hatch is an outdoor kitchen just waiting for summer barbecue days. The deck it lives on is more than expansive, almost doubling the home’s living space thanks to the electric screens that fully enclose the area. You can access the deck from the kitchen and via timber stacker doors, which create an amazing indoor/outdoor flow. The icing on the cake has to be the hot tub that looks out across the nature reserve, where you can listen to the birdsong and watch the sky turn shades of orange and purple – who needs a treetop hotel when you have this!
The main bedroom is a complete respite for the heads of the house, with French doors leading onto the deck and a luxurious ensuite with a frameless shower, unique glass sink and recessed cistern toilet for a modern look. With a third bedroom close by and a powder room adjoining the large, well-appointed laundry, this property has been meticulously crafted to create the ultimate Bayside home.
