Check out the views from the rooftop terrace at 243 Kent St, Teneriffe.
THIS house is the perfect mix between classic Queenslander and contemporary living.
When Stephen and Nora Atkinson bought the 243 Kent St house at Teneriffe a decade ago, they knew whatever renovations they undertook, they would have to encompass the block’s incredible views.
The front of the house at 243 Kent St, Teneriffe, is modest but charming.
“It’s quite an interesting spot,” Mrs Atkinson said.
“We loved its aspect.
“You get 270 degree views, from the airport control tower to the Story Bridge.”
To make the most of the city skyline, they built a rooftop terrace.
“You feel like you’re on top of Brisbane when you’re on top of the roof deck,” Mrs Atkinson said.
This level has VJ walls, dado rails and decorative fretwork.
Other elements of the renovations included an extension out the back, adding more entertainment areas, and building the property upward.
Polished timber floorboards sweep through the kitchen.
The house spans across several levels, including the terrace, and the lower level has the elements of a Queenslander, with polished timber floorboards, VJ walls, dado rails, stained glass windows and ornate fretwork.
Upstairs is a more contemporary living space.
On the middle level there is a shift to modern architecture, and while polished timber floorboards continue through the area, there is a more contemporary vibe, with a pane of glass in the floor to look down to the level below, and a gas fireplace surrounded by a stone feature wall.
This loft makes for a cool studio space.
On this level is also a separate studio space, which follows pitched rooflines.
“I practice my yoga or meditation in there, or the kids have music jam sessions up there,” Mrs Atkinson said.
“We did have guests occasionally stay in there, it is extremely versatile.”
Upstairs is the master suite and the pool.
Take a dip on those hot summer days.
