Secluded, versatile hillside home
PRIVACY and peaceful hinterland views are on offer at this impressive home on two levels at Eumundi. Set high on the side of a hill, the 0.77ha property is off a private driveway at the top of the cul-de-sac.
Overlooked by no-one, the 2005 home by award-winning builders Braeden Constructions amid whispering gum trees commands some sensational sweeping valley views, coupled with hinterland and bush vistas. The elevation ensures the home captures all the breezes.
There is a blending of the Orient with established European features in the design and the lightweight feel of Queensland construction at the back. A retreat. A place for reflection as well as enjoying life.
The minimalist block exterior facade with a solid wood entry door provides the mystery of what lies behind.
The water features provide the serenity and calmness while the entrance foyer keeps the mystery alive with flanked pathways either side to a media area and library space.
It's like walking into a gallery ... high walls suitable for hanging paintings and the library area. The light radiates through the pagoda-style roof and high ceilings with clerestorey windows that enhances that feeling of space.
Open living areas give it a slightly industrial feel yet the design is such that it can be easily reconfigured. Multiple living zones offer versatility and functionality while still having quiet areas and massive entertaining spaces.
At the western end living-dining and lounge areas with three sets of sliding doors open to the balcony. Overlooking the pool and the timber sundeck, the 2.5m-wide balcony wraps around to the north.
The views are of the Blackall Range from Balmoral to Mapleton National Park. Mt Eerwah is in front and Eumundi township just over four minutes drive down the hill.
A spacious kitchen offers that perfect gourmet combination of gas-top cooking and 900mm-wide oven, dishwasher and icemaker fridge. The marine timber floors with their honey tones bring that feeling of warmth throughout and is soft under foot. There is reverse-cycle air-conditioning.
Each of the four large bedrooms have their own individuality and all open up on to their private decks.
Split-system air-conditioning is in the main bedroom suite which opens from the lounge and has a balcony to the south-east looking out to a hillside of green. The ensuite comes with raised vanity, walk-in shower and looks out to the gardens.
A third bedroom is in the northern wing, opening to the deck which links to the studio apartment with its own ensuite and overlooks the gardens ... perfect for visitors.
The pool terrace is off the ground and the 45sq m pebblecrete saltwater pool is decked on three sides providing ample room for sun loungers or entertaining.
The gardens on the 7752sq m are easy to maintain with a mix of natives, succulents, interspersed with large palms and lawn areas.
There is a large double garage and plenty of additional car parking off road.
