The kitchen may be the heart of the home, but the lounge room is where you kick back and relax. Whether you call it a living room, family room, rumpus room, or lounge, it’s a place where you gather with loved ones on soft couches and unwind, so it’s important it’s comfortable! Take a look at five of the best lounge rooms featured on OzHome News this week – and there’s plenty of variety.
Canadian Bay Road, Mt Eliza
One of the most exclusive properties in the seaside Melbourne suburb of Mt Eliza has just sold to pop icon Tones and I. The Melbourne-born singer, known to friends and family as Toni Watson, spent an impressive $7.08 million to secure the property, just three years after living out of her van in Byron.
Set on 2,500sqm, marble kitchens, underground lounges, billiards rooms and resort-style living all contribute to an air of luxury the new celebrity is sure to enjoy. The true entertainment space can be found in the basement, where colour-changing lights illuminate a room that wouldn’t be out of place in the most exclusive club. The luxe lounge joins onto a 3000-bottle wine cellar, complete with an antique French table. and a daybed that’s separated from the bottom of the pool by a single pane of glass!

44 Union Street, Armadale, Vic 3143
This renovated Armadale home – once a working dairy – has hit the market for the first time in 20 years. The iconic red-brick Victorian has a price guide of $10-$11 million, offering up four bedrooms, multiple living areas, and even a pool on a prime corner block.
French oak floorboards, polished concrete, bluestone and timber finishes, and windows that capture the northern light create private, sophisticated, yet homey interiors with a very functional floorplan. The multi-level property curls around two fantastic al fresco spaces, separated by a glass-walled living room that gives a new meaning to indoor/outdoor living.

36 Jenkins Court, Upper Coomera, Qld 4209
A prior luxury walkthrough in the Gold Coast hinterland is back on the market for $6.4 million dollars! The 20-acre estate boasats 360-degree panoramic views stretching from as far as Brisbane all the way to northern NSW – there’s no better spot on the Gold Coast.
This residence makes use of every available angle – usually by filling it with glass – and that’s best seen in the side lounge. It’s perfect for winter, thanks to a fireplace, while the timber feature walls bring just the right amount of texture to the room’s clean lines.

26 Dolphin Bay Drive, Sunshine Beach, Qld 4567
It takes great skill to create a home so visually interesting you instinctively gravitate towards it, but this Gabriel Pool design has managed it. On the market for $4 million, the home sits in undeniable harmony with its natural environment.
Take a step down to the living room, and there’s a fabulous sense of space. Glass concertina doors take up an entire wall, folding back to invite the outside in, where even the garden has a sense of geometry!

9 Palomino Road, Auldana, SA 5072
A new record has been set for an eastern Adelaide suburb, following the multi-million dollar sale of a hillside home with phenomenal views. Set behind a circular drive, the strong, blocky facade of this home quickly makes way for something incredible – panoramic views of Adelaide and beyond to the Gulf St Vincent. The vista is completely unobscured, thanks to floor to ceiling glass windows spanning the entire western edge of the building.
The open plan living space is perfectly positioned to take advantage of those views, combining living, dining and cooking into one generous room!
