2 HOMES FOR THE PRICE OF ONE!
The meticulous design is evident everywhere ? from the double window height that allows views from Wellington Point to the Glasshouse Mountains, to the use of ecological paint that does not emit harmful fumes. The timber used was logged selectively from native hardwood forests and most floor surfaces are treated with tung oil, a natural product. High windows admit extra light, while energy-conserving halogen lighting is wired for separate switches instead of one switch activating a bank of lights.
Both homes are designed to allow easy living at the ground level for older people. Guest quarters are upstairs. Lower bathrooms are fitted with showers, which are safer for the elderly, washing from the downstairs laundry can be dried on the back deck, dog doors give pets an independent life ? and there?s no grass to mow or pool to clean. There are phone and internet connections to both homes, and herbs in handy planter boxes even eliminate the need to walk to the garden!
Number 34 has 3 bedrooms (2 upstairs), 2 bathrooms (1 upstairs), a study (which could be a dressing room), a dining room with distinctive curved ceiling and sliding Japanese-inspired screens. The kitchen has gas and electric cooktop and electric oven. The lounge, with tall windows, has a cosy fireplace and built-in cupboards.
Number 32 has 4 bedrooms (3 upstairs) and 2 bathrooms (1 upstairs). Similar in design to number 34, the lounge has a high wall for bookshelves and storage for stereo equipment, while the kitchen has gas cooktop and electric oven. Both homes have a carport and parking space. The grounds have been discerningly planted with natives, rainforest plants, flowering exotics, fruiting vines and trees, herbs and vegetables. The driveway has condamine couch covering the concrete pavers, and both houses have a courtyard, storage and fernery under the house, and covered entrance decks.
Wonderfully positioned, these homes are just 5 minutes to Wynnum and Manly and 1/2 an hour to Brisbane. Views stretch across the bay to Stradbroke Island, just an hour away by barge from Cleveland. It is a dog-friendly neighbourhood, with vets and off-leash areas nearby.
