Something many of the properties featured this week had in common was their multi-level builds, which means a variety of staircase designs. From the timeless timber spiral to modern glass and steel constructions, there’s plenty of ways to ascend, and they’re all sure to keep your spirits high!
5827 Coveside Lane, Sanctuary Cove, Qld 4212
On the market for $4,295,000, this six-bedroom, multi-level property looks large and grand from the front, and equally lovely from the back. Spread across 1,491sqm, a sweet, French-inspired facade boasts three charming balconies overlooking a formal garden; simple, yet classically elegant.
The staircase in this estate combines timeless grace with modern style. The simple sweep of marble is cheekily framed by a glass and steel bannister, while the space beneath is used to show up beautiful art and an abundance of plents!

26 Morella Road, Mosman, NSW 2088
With sprawling grounds and views across Sydney’s Chowder Bay, this fusion of Hollywood style and Spanish mission architecture is an estate fit for a star. First built in 1936, this six-bedroom mansion has retained its classic charm despite extensive modernisation. With a price guide of $14.5 – $16 million, it went to auction for a very select, but very determined set of bidders.
Inside, an impressive foyer with wrought iron detailing and ornate archways opens through to a large dining room with timber coffered ceilings and gun-barrel views of the harbour, while a sunken lounge on the left comes with a sandstone fireplace and wrought iron candelabra. The staircase is similarly extravagant, with a different tiled pattern on every step!

Belle Property Mosman
1 Wingadal Place, Point Piper, NSW 2027
What may be the most expensive sale of the year took place late last month in Sydney Harbour’s Point Piper. The five-bedroom home with views of Sydney Harbour was advertised at $40 – $44 million and reportedly sold to an undisclosed buyer late last month.
Timber, stone and marble are present in lavish quantities throughout the residence, from the Karri wood floors, Wondabyne sandstone terraces, and marble fixtures from Sarah’s own family quarries. Best of all is the hand-wrought vaulted copper ceiling on the top level, which reflects the dramatic Sydney harbour sunsets with a dull glow. That copper is repeated in the Karri wood staircase, ‘capping’ the planks, as well as providing a decorative siding.

Raine & Horne Double Bay
28 Upper Cairns Terrace, Paddington, Qld 4064
This iconic Brisbane home is for all lovers of modern architecture. It’s cutting-edge and contemporary, showcasing breathtaking design from its geometric exterior to its modern floor plan, and who could forget those gorgeous views…
The five-bedroom home makes use of elements you won’t find anywhere else, like an industrial look ceiling, and cork wall tiles in the media room – enjoy the full cinema experience without worrying the neighbours! Perfectly in keeping with the rest of the house, the pale timber staircase connects the upper floor with the downstairs rumpus room. It’s repeated in miniature in the sunken lounge, but just those few steps make it feel like you’re entering a whole new space!

Belle Property Wilston
29 The Promenade, Isle Of Capri, Qld 4217
An eye-catching architectural design on the Isle of Capri is available to purchase for the equally eye-catching sum of $6.89 million. The waterfront home was custom built at the beginning of the year and offers what can only be called an entertainer’s lifestyle.
Soaring timber columns herald your arrival, leading to an oversized timber and glass front door. The timber motif is repeated in a statement oak and glass staircase, making reaching the second floor less an effort and more an experience. From a gym, five-person lift, private pontoon, and chef’s kitchen, this home has it all, and it’s a short walk by foot – or by boat – to the shopping and dining precincts of Surfers Paradise!
