Address available on request, Tamborine, Qld 4270
For a homier option, head to Angelhurst in Tamborine, the only English village for sale in Australia.
Priced at $2.5 million, it’s a treasure trove of memorabilia and British nostalgia with its own chapel, pub, and even a fire station.
The main Tudor house has a brightly lit country-style kitchen perfect for preparing the Sunday roast. Dark tiles and exposed beams compliment the white cabinetry, and in the corner, an old-fashioned oven takes pride of place in an alcove where they’d place the fire spit back in the day!

Queensland Sotheby’s International Realty – Main Beach
82 Empire Circuit, Deakin, ACT 2600
Surrounded by elevated, sun-filled gardens, the multi-storey stately home at 82 Empire Circuit is on the market for $8.5 million.
The kitchen is classical in design but modern in its fit-out and appliances. Generous swathes of marble line the counters and storage, with contrasting marble on the countertops and splashback. It’s all lit by a combination of spotlights and designer pendant lighting, which reflects beautifully off the high-gloss timber parquetry flooring.

Berkely Residential – Kingston
Lot 6, Chesapeake Estate, Mandalay Road, Airlie Beach, Qld 4802
Sitting on a promontory in the midst of a 76-hectare shared estate, Lot 6 Mandalay Road was originally planned as the central component of an elaborate survivalist enclave. Today, the two-storey, Mediterranean-style villa supports a quieter lifestyle, with some of the best views in the area.
On the market for $3.5 million, the kitchen, like the rest of the house, has plenty of room. Commercial-sized sinks and cooktops, a walk-in pantry and a custom-made kitchen table, all highlighted in green, hark back to the estate’s communal ideals, encouraging elaborate meal plans.
11 Jeannie Gunn Street, Franklin, ACT 2913
In another style change, this 817sqm property, which recently sold for $1,745,000 at auction, makes a statement with its kitchen.
Here the kitchen shares space with an informal family area. Cooking couldn’t be easier thanks to a range of high-end appliances, cabinetry and benchtops, but the standout feature is the stylish splashback. Crafted from red glass with warm orange undertones, the vibrantly coloured glass is repeated in the nearby study nook for a fantastic pop of colour.
