Stunning Tropical Retreat in Ashgrove

This property is currently not available.

Transport yourself into a secluded and unique resort style residence designed to cater for the larger family with perhaps an older generation to accommodate. This home was designed by an architect with significant experience in the tropics and features five generously sized bedrooms, dedicated study/office, large multi-purpose space downstairs and an array of indoor and outdoor entertainment areas feeding off the well-equipped kitchen.

The eastern side of the house catches the morning sunlight beautifully thus creating a picturesque setting for the casual family area. Here, you’ll find a spacious lounge for relaxing and a deck that offers a delightful view of the pool which is surrounded by tropical vegetation. This inviting space is further enhanced by an alfresco terrace for more casual large group dining where the BBQ could be located. All this is positioned adjacent to the easily supervised and enclosed yard where kids and pets can play surrounded by a lush enclave of vegetation which provides privacy.

On the other side of the kitchen heart lies an elegant and more formal open plan dining-living space divided by a feature fireplace that fosters warm conversations. Multiple decks surround this area offering either enchanting views of the cityscape, or breathtaking sunsets through the landscaped gardens or just another place to chill in comfort away from the party inside.

The ground level features an architect designed multi-purpose space with its own self-contained facilities – an ideal rumpus/media room, a home business setup perhaps, guest accommodation or perhaps a separate older generation space but within easy reach of the rest of the family.
