A hedge of bamboo provides the backdrop for authentic resort-style living.
IT’S THE resort-style feel of this Sandgate home that Kayla Brown will miss most when her parents sell.
It’s the house that wraps around the pool area.
“They’re in Bali now on a holiday,” Ms Brown said.
“Mum and dad built the house and it’s the same design as my uncle and aunt’s house in Bali but smaller.”

There is an openness to 8 Ninth Ave, Sandgate which allows you to play with how you lay out the main rooms.
Opening the bi-fold doors allows the living areas to be part of the outdoors.
For Ms Brown, this means setting up the TV in the lounge in such a way that you can watch it while you float in the pool.
“I’ve moved in and out of the house a bit, and when I’m here I feel like I’m on holidays, like it’s a resort. I get to choose my room,’’ she said.

The house is built around the pool in a u-shape with all rooms having direct access to the outdoor area and pool.
The main living area is connected to the bedrooms via the veranda
It is a clever design feature that also gives the main bathroom direct access to the outdoor entertaining area.
The main bathroom is accessed from the second and third bedroom and the veranda.
The house has two bedrooms with walk-in-wardrobes and ensuites while the two secondary bedrooms both have direct access to the main bathroom.

“We don’t need airconditioning because it has the breezes and the ceiling fans,” she said.
“Everything is open.”
Paula and Rick Mulley bought the property seven years ago and removed the existing house to build their little piece of Bali.
From the front this house is grounded in simplicity with clean lines.
While her parents sell the house to travel, Ms Brown is moving to Griffin but her dream is to live on acreage with her three horses, Rex, Lexi and Reeds.
“If I could move this house to 25 acres of land, I would. I love the style of it.”
