Located at one of Toowoomba’s best addresses on Arthur Street, East Toowoomba sits a fusion of old world character, and sophisticated modern styling. From the street, the property presents as a classic cottage, simple and understated yet oozing character. The original family home, this space has been lovingly restored and completely renovated into two generous bedrooms complemented by a charming sitting room and bathroom. Original features have been restored and maintained in the cottage, including ironbark tongue and groove natural flooring. The original façade has been preserved, with a quaint porch providing an ideal spot to relax and admire the front garden in the leafy eastside location.

Beyond the cottage, a seamless transition from old world to modern reveals a contemporary masterpiece. The spectacular gourmet kitchen is a foodie’s paradise, complete with all of the latest appliances including induction cooktop, steam oven, convection oven and plate warming drawer. A generous butler’s pantry provides excellent storage. Open plan and with a sense of grandeur, the kitchen spills into a sumptuous casual family room and separate luxurious dining space.

Expansive 3.4 metre ceilings and polished concrete floors feature throughout and excellent use is made of the northern aspect.

A designer staircase ascends to the upper level, the hero of which is the breathtaking master suite. Space is not compromised in this elegant hideaway, with an ensuite and spacious walk-in robe, as well as ample room to relax and enjoy the views. Adjoining the master suite are two large bedrooms, chic bathroom and mezzanine living area. Views across a range of outlooks give a sense of openness while maintaining privacy. A central void connecting the two levels allows light, aspect and the best of the four-season climate to be enjoyed. The high level specifications obvious in all areas remain casual and luxurious.

Energy efficient glass is fitted to the entire house, helping to keep the temperature comfortable whatever the weather. A 22,500 litre rainwater tank is plumbed to the entire residence, with filtered tank water for drinking and instant hot water. Plantation shutters, ducted airconditioning and thermal underfloor heating add an extra level of comfort to this already luxurious home.

Indoor and outdoor blend seamlessly together in rhythm to produce a modern tone. Brilliantly landscaped with an imaginative use of materials and textures, the outdoor living options are beautifully integrated and inspired. Two waterfalls tumble effortlessly into a central swimming pool, which is solar heated and can be enjoyed all year round. A manicured sweep of lawn borders the alfresco lounging area and perfectly positioned outdoor living, both of which are fitted with natural gas heating. External garden lighting with timer options allows for ambient night time entertaining. An automatic sprinkler and drip system are fitted to the total garden making caring for the grounds hassle free.
