Gold Coast home has water views from almost every room

first_imgThe kitchen is huge!The property features 30m of east-facing water frontage. There are four bedrooms including two ensuited master bedrooms, a study, kitchen with stainless steel appliances, separate lounge, dining room, two family rooms and a pool with entertaining terrace.Since owning the house, the family have updated the airconditioning. “When we bought the house there wasn’t any airconditioning because the house truly does stay cool without them for 99 per cent of the summer, thanks to the double-brick construction and cooling ocean breezes,” she said. “However, for that occasional one per cent of extremely hot and windless summer days, we finally bit the bullet 18 months ago and installed four brand new split-system airconditioning units.” Enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner with a view.If you want a water view from almost every room, this is the house for you.Joanne Rahn bought the sprawling Runaway Bay property in 2014 — the design initially sparked her attention.“I love the fact the house was architecturally-designed specifically for the fan-shaped block,” the mother-of-two said. “All four bedrooms have the most spectacular views — the block is what many consider to be among the best blocks on Runaway Islands.” Wake up to water views. The perfect spot to soak up the sun and views in summer.More from news02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa16 hours ago02:37Gold Coast property: Sovereign Islands mega mansion hits market with $16m price tag2 days ago The property from the street.Ms Rahn said she had fond memories of the property including bringing her newborn daughter home, birthday parties, and kayaking and stand up paddle boarding around the canals.

River retreat with room for the kids to roam

first_imgWHEN Sam and James Macpherson purchased this scenic property in Kirwan two years ago, they wanted somewhere with plenty of room to raise their teenage twin boys. Sitting on 803sq meters, the home at 43 Riviera Circuit was the perfect fit — combining space, privacy and tranquillity on the Bohle River. “The boys are fourteen, and two teenage boys take up about 10-times more space than everybody else,” said Ms Macpherson.“I love the area, particularly because backing onto the river has been fantastic, you could be anywhere.”“When you’re in the master bedroom you can look right out across the back area to all the green beyond it, and it feels incredibly private which I really love.” “It is the perfect open plan North Queensland house … The good thing is you have multiple small spaces that you can close-up during summer if you want to use the airconditioning but the living space is very flowy.”“The kitchen flows into the living areas which flows into the snooker room and into the outdoor area — so there’s lots of air flow, lots of natural light, and heaps of glass.” Another major drawcard for the family, was the close-knit neighbourhood.“The street is fantastic because it’s full of families so I really love that there’s been a good sense of community.”The spacious home features four-bedrooms, two-bathrooms, and multiple living areas — giving the family their own freedom and privacy, as well as a place to come together and relax. It also boasts a triple lockup garage with shelving, built in cupboards and a sink. The home is perfect for entertaining, boasting a well-appointed kitchen with black and rose-gold granite bench tops, wine storage space, and plenty of outdoor space.There’s also the option to prepare food on one of the many outdoor cooking appliances, including a pizza oven, wok burner or massive barbecue — while looking out onto the huge pool area.center_img More from news01:21Buyer demand explodes in Townsville’s 2019 flood-affected suburbs12 Sep 202001:21‘Giant surge’ in new home sales lifts Townsville property market10 Sep 2020 “I’m going to really miss the summer parties with the fairy lights and everyone free ranging outside with lots of food.” The property backs onto Bohle River but despite its close proximity to the water, Ms Macpherson says the house was completely unaffected during the flood event. “Honestly post floods, I think for people who are shopping for property in Townsville, that’s a big deal.” “It’s a really great home and it’s just waiting for the right family to walk through the door.”last_img read more

This house at 17 Warril Dr, Kuranda, is on the market.“We decided to build the master suite in particular because we’ve got adult children and grandchildren coming to visit so we wanted a much bigger home and a separate wing where we could just have complete privacy and shut that off from the remainder of the house,” Mrs Hiddins said.
