Imagine, if you will, the gentle bubble of a waterfall, splashing off rocks – watched by a lizard basking in the sunshine – no other sounds except for the occasional bird call. In the resulting stream leading to a little bridge, large orange fish loll in the shadows – a Japanese maple framing the scene. Beyond, palms and frangipani rub shoulders with hibiscus. Welcome home.
The word ‘sanctuary’ is thrown about a lot in this industry, but with 23 Koona Street, there is no doubt once you enter through the brick arch that you are leaving everything else behind. What awaits you is a home masterfully built from a luxurious mix of materials. A home that offers a seamless fusion of indoors and out in an established lush subtropical setting.
Beginning with the indoors, the centerpiece is definitely the show-stopping space that includes kitchen, dining and living (plus powder room) in a sandstone-blocked, timber-floored embodiment of “wow” factor.
With its granite centre island, timber joinery and dramatic copper range ascending the 4 metre high raked ceilings, this is a kitchen that refuses to yield to ‘ordinary’. The opposite wall sees another copper flue – this time from the gas fire in the voluminous living space. Proof that is the perfect entertaining or relaxing place all year round.
Out beyond the federation-inspired hardwood verandah, a layered story of water is being told. Immediately below, that tranquil waterfall and stream. Further back, the pool and BBQ area. Further still, a large lily pond, and then the lake itself. Unbelievably, that’s just the beginning, as the grounds spill eastwards, revealing bird aviaries, a small studio and enough space to create a tennis court, formal gardens or small orchard if you desire!
It’s a lot to take in, so rest awhile in one of half a dozen covered outdoor spaces as you recline with a cool drink and a good book. Or if sweet dreams beckon, retire to one of three air-conditioned bedrooms (master with ensuite and adjoining sitting room/4th room) that offer a nature retreat-style linear wing linking the front of the house with the living areas. It truly is like being at a resort.
There are so many influences to choose from in this special address, but just one overwhelming feeling – the feeling of privacy and sanctuary. Whether it’s running water or sunset skies, this home will awaken your senses on so many levels.
