Dream homes: The top 5 houses around Rockhampton
From beautiful architectural visions at Yeppoon to classic colonial Queenslanders, here's our pick of the top five homes around Rockhampton:
36 The Esplanade, Lammermoor
CONTEMPORARILY designed by architect Stephen Kidd, this home has become a Yeppoon icon and exemplifies absolute beachfront living at its best. Built over three levels, it is set on a half-acre block and has the potential to either subdivide or build a tennis court on the back block. The one-ofa-kind atrium on the middle level, looking over a wraparound infinity pool and onto Lammermoor Beach, is the envy of Yeppoon.
16 Freeman Street, Yeppoon
HERE is design that can only be described as a masterpiece. The range of views from the unique villa-style design split over three levels is an inspiration for any potential owner to enjoy the spice of life. What truly stands out is the wealth of entertaining options, including the pool and raised parapet deck which enjoys some of the most elevated views of the Yeppoon town centre from any property on the coast.
33 Talford Street, The Range
WELL located close to hospitals and schools is this majestic, sprawling, grand colonial Queenslander, circa 1896. It has been designed over two spacious levels, set privately amidst leafy 2876sq m landscaped gardens with a northerly aspect. The enchanting wide period hallway introduces the 13ft ceilings, striking stained glass feature windows, distinctive lighting, heavy oak doors, beautifully solid rench windows, tongue and groove walls, wide hoop pine floors and marble fireplace. A fairytale roof turret and the wide wraparound verandas add to the choice of views. Then there are the full sized tennis court, in-ground pool and entertaining area.
Villa 8 Bayside Way, Rosslyn
IF YOU are talking opulence, who can go past the unique design and lavish location of the Bayside Villas, built with luxury and relaxed living in mind. This three-bedroom, two-level villa has been immaculately maintained and offers breezes as well as a winter/ summer, sun-optimised design. It includes a private, 16m, freehold berth which is a gateway to the Keppel Islands, only 20 minutes away by boat.
181 Quarry Lane, Rockhampton
ENTERING via the secured portico to the formal entrance with cathedral ceiling, the extremely high standard of finishes in this home is immediately evident. The ground floor of this two-storey family residence commands attention with its soothing media room, open-plan kitchen with spacious lounge/dining and flowing over to a generous Queensland-style back deck taking in the magnificent views over the city cathedrals and mountain ranges. Up the dark polished timber stairs is the master bedroom with Juliet balcony and those panoramic views. Outside is a selection of formal, manicured gardens over the 1571sq m property, from paved courtyards to a citrus grove.
