Nothing beats a good backyard. Whether you’re lounging in the shade, or simply enjoying the view, green spaces are the perfect place for rest and relaxation. There’s a lot of ways to go about transforming and maintaining these areas though, so here are five examples of the best grounds featured on OzHome News in the past week!

33 Wilga Drive, Bunya, Qld 4055
OzHome News’ Natasha Pruchniewicz had the privilege of exploring this Mediterranean-style home last week and says it’s like walking through a postcard. 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.
A little closer to home, the large kitchen opens 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. Surrounded by fragrant, terraced greenery that wraps around the house, there’s an abundance of landscape to get lost in.

Urban Nest Realty – Albany Creek
58 Watson Street, Newmarket, Qld 4051
Nestled into the hillside in Newmarket, this multi-million dollar property is hiding some big surprises. What looks like a single storey home from the road quickly opens up to a six-level dwelling full of luxury and class, and boasting some of the best views you can find in Brisbane!
The terraced backyard slopes down the block, all the way down to a massive pool with an integrated spa, and a poolside pavilion with fantastic, tree-framed views of the city. There’s still plenty of room for a lawn on the middle terrace, and a courtyard on the terrace above that, with trees and shrubs nestled wherever they can.

Coronis – Inner North
90 Page Street, Albert Park, Vic 3206
This tightly-held property in one of Melbourne’s most exclusive suburbs has hit the market with an impressive price guide of $8-$8.8 million. Set on a 506sqm dual-frontage, the multi-storey home at 90 Page Street, Albert Park is attracting attention for its size and location, and the way it brings nature inside!
A vine-covered central courtyard fills the home with fresh air and light, a reflection of the green space out back. Aside from the obligatory pool, the backyard houses a covered terrace, a gorgeous vine-covered arch, and established gardens around the lawn.

Cayzer Real Estate Albert Park
25 Lorikeet Drive, Peregian Beach, Qld 4573
Brought to life by renowned building designer Chris Clout, Lorikeet Haven is one of the Sunshine Coast’s most memorable homes. Priced at $4 million, the entire home is designed to draw your gaze inwards, creating a fantastically private haven centred around a heated magnesium pool.
There’s plenty to look at on the outside though, thanks to lush, tropical plantings just past the natural lawn. The property houses four bedrooms, with three upstairs, and a very unique feature alongside the master suite! Sliding glass doors open to reveal a space filled with synthetic grass, perfect for a few zen moments.
