This 1 hectare site gave the Client an opportunity to create a expansive residence with landscaping and out buildings similar to a country club. The Client is one of Brisbane’s leading pool designers and builders, so water features and a 25m swimming pool feature prominently in the design.
Spaces are generous in scale and relaxed in proportion, all overlapping to ensure that there are no hallways in the house which would compromise the relaxed lifestyle of the family.
The large kitchen is the hub of the home. It has a scullery, butler’s pantry, and cold room, and opens onto a security mosquito mesh enclosed Lanai for year round enjoyment. Separated from the Lanai by an indoor water feature is the Master suite with views from the sunken bath to the mountain ranges beyond. All bedrooms also overlook the garden, tennis court, and architectural cubby house. Beyond these are the Client’s home office and materials store, also designed by Cottee Parker.
