A CUSTOM-built cinema with surround sound and tiered flooring takes centre stage in this Woody Point home on the Redcliffe Peninsula that is being offered for sale for the first time.
The architecturally-designed house at 18 Brighton St, Woody Point, spreads over 330sq m and was built for Ron and Helen Carter 10 years ago.
It also has two large bedrooms with ensuites and outdoor entertainment areas that are roomy enough to host a party for 40-50.
The home cinema is the second largest room in the house and has built-in shelving, airconditioning and is wired for HDMI.
Insulated walls and floors feature throughout the two-storey house on a 501sq m block.
“We designed it open plan so you can walk out to the alfresco area,” Mr Carter said.
“Out the back is my favourite place, because the back area has 4.5m ceilings.”
A built-in fish pond, eight-year-old grapevines in the courtyard, and three large skylights across the covered entertainment, dining and lounge areas bring nature into the design space.
The most recent addition to the property has been laying sandstone flagging in the courtyard.
Mr and Mrs Carter originally moved from Chelmer to Woody Point, building a house to suit their grown family, with children visiting occasionally.
“We’d always wanted to live here and we’re not moving on from Woody Point, we love it here,” Mr Carter said.
“I’m a machinist and mechanic and I work from home, so I need a bigger shed and my wife needs a smaller house.”
With room for four cars and a caravan in a triple garage and off-street accommodation, 18 Brighton St, Woody Point could never be accused of skimping on space.
Upstairs has three large bedrooms, two with walk-in wardrobes, one with an ensuite and all with access to an upstairs retreat and main bathroom.
The ground floor has the main living zones surrounded by a covered entertaining area, large courtyard, and built-in barbecue area with mains gas connection and servery access to the kitchen.
The ground level also has the fourth bedroom with ensuite, a separate study, storage rooms and the home cinema.
