Imagine yourself escaping to this beautiful architect designed home which celebrates the beauty of our natural environment and wonderful climate, and yet is close to the city and only minutes from the coffee shops and restaurants of the famous Edge Hill village. A great tropical building, this home allows a seamless connection between indoors and outdoors with plentiful outdoor living spaces and views of the beautiful established trees and plants—even while you are lying in bed or having a shower in your ensuite. The home is secluded, private and peaceful and yet has all the advantages of a suburb such as easy access to schools, the city and the airport. The design provides a separate parents’ retreat and a 3 bedroom children’s wing. Guests are almost too well catered for in their own separate space with bathroom and access to a huge second outdoor deck. The owner was able to use this as a wonderful work from home space and her partner was able to use the study for his work from home, making it ideal for anyone who wants to work remotely. You start to relax the minute you arrive at this tropical refuge. The entry to the home is via a beautiful covered walkway set amongst the trees and you feel as though you’re arriving at your own eco resort. The wonderful open plan living with beautiful timber floors and soaring ceilings, flows seamlessly to the main outdoor living space. The whole house is designed for coolness and cross ventilation, and to make sure that the breathtaking setting is incorporated wherever you look. There is a stylish new kitchen which opens to the deck and the main bathroom and ensuite have also recently been updated to a clean and minimalist look. The architect designed and engineered steel structure of the home ensures that it is robust and low maintenance in our tropical environment, and the contrast between the steel elements and the timber set both into sharp relief. The floor plan works extremely well for the family and is both practical and aesthetically pleasing.
The owners have brought up their family in this home and they have all enjoyed the special experience that living in this home, so connected to it’s setting, has given them. The owner has summed what they have felt about living here: “I can’t emphasise enough what a privilege it has been to live here. It has been a terrific family home. The most treasured aspect is that it opens us up to the tranquillity of the rainforest. To have that soothing peace and quiet, so close to all of the amenities that Edge Hill has to offer, is an absolute gift”. It's time for the owners to downsize and pass this wonderful lifestyle on to the next fortunate owner.
