It’s sits comfortably in its environment and catches the beauty of its surrounds through every windows / doors, including landscape and filtered light through tropical vegetation.
This home has a strong sense of self dating back to the 1960’s when it was a doctors surgery in Ipswich QLD, and brought onto the property. The challenge of extending on a character enriched home and not losing its sense of self, has been achieved by blending an open style extension, capturing views over the yard and pool and utilising doors from Afghanistan, light fittings from Vietnam and lead lighting from the original homestead and travel destinations over the years.
The original home with its grand entrance front porch and timber features, welcoming you through the hallway past two bedrooms, and the first of 2 bathrooms.

The formal dining area sits next to the country style kitchen with timber cabinetry, gas, cooking overlooking the rear grassed backyard.
The transition to the recent extension flows off the lounge, connected by timber flooring and opens out to wonderful multipurpose lounge / rumpus room with soaring 6-meter-high ceiling with spectacular lighting sourced from a Vietnamese restaurant. The lounge area includes a 4m x 8m upper mezzanine level which could easily be used as media space or a further bedroom, accessed by timber stairs and overlooks the lower level.
