This luxury ranch style family home is located on a working cattle property in Beaudesert, 50 minutes from Brisbane. The spectacular entry of the main house of 400m2 sets the tone for the rest of the home – six metre vaulted ceilings, clad in Western Queensland spotted gum, from which four crystal chandeliers hang. Extensive use of large sliding glass doors lead out to the deep wrap-around balconies, and allow the occupants to enjoy the outlook and vantage over the pool. In keeping with the rural setting, the Brazilian slate floors run throughout the main living areas onto the verandas, and Victorian basalt makes a handsome fireplace feature. The idea of warm natural materials creates a sophisticated timeless home. Linked by an external common walkway from the main house are four smaller residences. Each of these separate homes boast two bedrooms (both ensuited), living room and scenic verandas from which to capture a cool breeze.
