Designed as three pavilions, this house features wide breezeways, deep verandas, and timber decks typifying the tropical north Queensland indoor-outdoor lifestyle.
The design was inspired by plantation-style British West Indies architecture with cathedral ceilings, open island house plan, columns and louver shutters to maximise the prevailing breezes.
The property is positioned to take advantage of the northerly aspect that has the 180-degree views across the Coral Sea toward the Great Barrier Reef, Low Islands to the Daintree Rainforest and beyond.
The house includes five bedrooms, four bathrooms plus guest powder room. The main pavilion has living areas linked by a staircase to a second tier formal dining room, which overlooks a modern kitchen and casual dining area.
Next to the kitchen is an air-conditioned scullery, large commercial fridge/freezer and walk-in cool room, a laundry room and guest powder room. Central to the main pavilion is an 11-metre salt-water swimming pool surrounded by multi-tiered timber decks and outdoor living spaces.
Pavilion two and the secluded master bedroom suite and private balcony on the second level with views over the grounds and the Coral Sea. It includes an ensuite and a separate dressing room. Three guest bedrooms and adjoining dual bathrooms make up the third pavilion.
A covered breezeway connects a double car garage and the fourth bedroom with private ensuite and a separate entrance.
