Some homes are unforgettable: memories of their unbelievable beauty never fade, and like a gift, you want to share it with others.
The property at 33 Wilga Drive, Bunya – just northwest of Brisbane – is one of these places.
There’s an authentic charm to this Mediterranean-style home, like you’re walking through a postcard. The facade is adorned with classic architectural elements that let you know, even 50 years from now, this place will still feel timeless.
On the market for about $3 million, the home comes with magnificent gardens stretching more than 4,000sqm. Backing onto undisturbed forest, the rolling landscape fills you with a sense of peace.
Turning to the house, and elegant double doors will greet you at the top of the travertine stairs. Inside, coiffured ceilings, large columns, and a gas fireplace with a solid marble mantel brings Italian charm to the main living room.
The true rustic beauty of Tuscany comes alive in the kitchen. There are all the warm hues you’d see in a sunset and a relaxed elegance that feels more like a vacation villa. Just as you’d expect in a home of this calibre, there are no shortcuts in quality. Look at the solid granite stone benchtop, handmade American Oak cabinetry, and the sandstone clad feature wall. If that’s not enough, there’s a ceramic farmhouse double sink, high-end appliances, and a spectacular dual fuel stove that’s almost a work of art in its own right!
The large kitchen side doors open up to a stunning al fresco area, that flows from the games room in the west, all the way to the master bedroom on the other side of the house. This is a magical space where you can grab a drink from the bar and then relax in your own palace. Surrounded by fragrant, terraced greenery, there’s even a pool! White pillars, cascading water and rounded pool edges create a feeling that’s very Versace.
The master wing is super-sized and has direct access to the pool via beautiful French doors. There’s a special ‘parents’ retreat’, and a custom-designed walk-in robe with Tasmanian Oak cabinetry. As for the bathrooms – en suite and shared – the more travertine, the better. The American Oak vanities look splendid against the decorated copper basins, and there’s even a dedicated makeup area.
There are several family and living spaces, more than enough to accommodate the seven bedrooms found throughout both levels of the estate. Speaking of the upper level, the amount of light and space it captures is wonderful. It drips elegance and beauty, even extending out to the Juliet balcony – the perfect spot for afternoon tea.
