Aussies go to the polls today and while the thought of numbering every box may be enough to make your stomach churn, the humble democracy sausage always gets the popular vote.
But if you would prefer to toast your right to tick or flick a politician over a beer and a snag in the privacy of your own home, with not a single pollster in sight, then these outdoor kitchens should be enough to fire up the most cynical voter.
First up is 3 Belgrave Place at Carindale, a sprawling luxury house with five bedrooms on a 800sq m block.
It has two kitchens that are perfect for cooking up a banger — an indoor one with a huge bench, a breakfast bar and a suite of luxury appliances and an outdoor one that perfectly suits the Queensland climate (and we are not talking about the state of the polls).
Overlooking the pool, this entertaining space has plenty of space to lounge around after you embrace your democratic right to feast on a frankfurter.
Listed with Nick Foster of Ray White Carina, the property is for sale by negotiation.
But if you feel your right to barbecue should be written in the Constitution, then of corso you should check out 429 Brisbane Corso at Yeronga.
Dad jokes aside, this architecturally-designed house has six bedrooms and is on a 1019sq m riverfront block.
Spread over three levels, this house has three kitchens including a formal kitchen finished with granite benchtops and plenty of cabinetry storage.
A walk-in pantry leads in to a second chef’s kitchen with commercial-grade, Liebherr and Gaggenau appliances and a full, stainless-steel cooking station with a servery. Outside there is a wraparound terrace with a built-in, outdoor kitchen, perfect for entertaining friends, family and fellow pundits. It is listed for sale with Sarah Hackett of Place Bulimba.
In Hendra, Ray White Ascot agent Leigh Kortlang is making her pitch for 18 Gordon St — a four bedroom “entertainer’s delight” on a 405sq m block.
Spread over two levels, the updated house has an indoor kitchen with stainless-steel appliances and a five-burner gas cooktop and an outdoor kitchen with an Apollo Premium barbecue, sink, fridge, dishwasher and storage overlooking the pool, spa and poolside retreat.
It is also listed for sale.
