PRIVATE FAMILY OASIS ON 1414m2
Hidden away at the end of a long hedge-lined driveway and occupying a sprawling 1414sqm block sits this unique and spacious family home. Designed by renowned architect Graham Thomas Kildey to embrace Brisbane’s sub-tropical climate and employing passive solar building techniques the north/east aspect and radial floor plan captures the best of soothing summer breezes and warming winter sun.
