Brinsmead house surrounded by rainforest ideal for de-stressing

first_imgThis four bedroom house at 135 Hearl Close, Brinsmead is labelled a tranquil and exotic rainforest family home by Cairns Property Office Redlynch agent Oliver Voss. Picture: SuppliedIF complete serenity and quiet are prerequisites to buying a new home, then have a look at this four-bedroom property. Nestled among tropical rainforest at the end of a close is this sophisticated, elevated acreage property with access to seasonal creeks – a rarity for a an inner-city suburban house less than 20 minutes to the CBD. Cairns Property Office agent Oliver Voss describes the house and its location as a “de-stressing” property. “The previous owners had very stressful jobs in the city and they really enjoyed coming home to this property,” Mr Voss said. “It’s a very peaceful environment. This four-bedroom house at 135 Hearl Close, Brinsmead is labelled a tranquil and exotic rainforest family home by Cairns Property Office Redlynch agent Oliver Voss.“It’s at the end of the street, the neighbours aren’t nearby, and you’re completely surrounded by rainforest. “You can come home after a stressful day, sit on the veranda and enjoy the environment. “It’s good for the soul.” Mr Voss said when he usually opened homes for inspections, he liked playing background music to help set the scene, but 135 Hear Cl had forced him to change his game. “I want people to come in and hear the birds, the wind and just everything from the rainforest. It’s very soothing. “People that use apps with sounds to cure insomnia, well I reckon this is where they come to record those sounds.” Cairns Property Office Redlynch agent Oliver Voss said one of the major drawcards for the property were the sliding doors that helped brings sounds, and breezes from the rainforest into the house.He said the comfort and lifestyle on offer flowed into the bedrooms. “The master bedroom has sliding doors with direct access on to the veranda overlooking the forest and the pool. “You could leave those doors open and enjoy both the sounds and the breeze of the rainforest as you sleep. “It also comes with a large ensuite with a double vanity and a walk-in robe as well.” Entry to the home is via a beautiful solid timber staircase which leads to the main living area including spacious, open-plan kitchen, dining and lounge rooms.The modern kitchen has plenty of space and features a gas cooktop, an island bench and its own walk-in pantry.

Downstairs is a separate fourth bedroom and another bathroom which could be used as a granny flat or it would be useful for someone who works from home and needs a studio area. “Again it would be the perfect work environment because of your surroundings,” Mr Voss said. “Or it would be perfect for boomerang kids.” There is also an undercover patio area to enjoy the peaceful surroundings from and a double-car garage with storage space. “Overall I’d say it’s a modern and contemporary home that’s been freshly painted and presents beautifully. “But the major catch is its surroundings. It’s in a very leafy part of Brinsmead and there’s not much traffic this way.“Maintenance is very low because your backyard is the rainforest.”last_img read more
