Beauty Through Design.
State of the art living at its finest, “Samara’ is undeniably one of the most exciting acreage properties in Queensland.
“Samara” was created with a vision that harboured no room for compromise. As unique as it is prestigious and as beautiful as it is smart, a property like this would be hard to find anywhere else.
“Samara” rests upon the grounds of a former Deer Sanctuary. It has been carefully designed and constructed to form itself seamlessly around two dams and looks out onto a stunning rainforest backdrop. Whilst this property is luxury at its very best, offering unsurpassed quality of finish with state of the art technology, the natural habitat for the abundant wildlife outside the property has been maintained. Kookaburras, glossy black Cockatoos, King Parrots, Sacred King Fishers, Sulphur-crested Cockatoos, Bilbys, Kangaroos, Wallabies are just some of the array of rare and exotic species of fauna that happily co-exists with “Samara”.
Access to the two acre estate and large sprawling home is via a secure remote controlled gate. The circular driveway leads to the enormous resort style ‘fingerprint’ entrance and port cochere, flanked on either side by cascading crystal clear ponds.
The design is in keeping with the Queensland lifestyle, combined with a stunning contemporary and prestigious style. Natural stone and marble, sparkling glass walls and soaring ceilings, leave you wide-eyed in awe at the magnificence of its structure.
Elegance, light and smooth movement are encapsulated at the heart of “Samara”.
This property is designed for exclusive entertaining. The indoor livings spaces fold seamlessly away with perfectly crafted bi fold doors, inviting into the home a vision of the stunning infinity pool and 20 person heated spa. The entire atmosphere is a delight for the senses. The sheer splendour of the house juxtaposed with the natural beauty of the rainforest, its tall gums and palm trees, illuminated from beneath and offering an awe inspiring ambience for your guests.
The pool area features a Sala, with wet bar, bathroom, sauna and gym – the perfect retreat and entertainer’s dream.
A comfortable and beautifully appointed lounge area is arranged around an open fire and large wall mounted screen, complete with surround sound and hidden speakers.
The intimate mood of “Samara” is defined by its unique use of lighting, all centrally controlled by the automation system. Moving through the property after twilight, more than twenty individual sensors monitor and predict motion and arrange the areas around you with subtle lighting.
Technology drives the home. The C-Bus automation controls a huge array of electrical items, including lighting, gates, doors and windows, air conditioning, TV and Audio-Visual.
The push-button alarm system prepares for your departure by opening the gates and locking the doors and windows on your departure as it arms the property. Arriving home a quick swipe of your fingerprint at entry initiates the property to disarm allowing “Samara” to greet you with subtle lighting (and even your favourite music if you wish).
The bedrooms are stunning, the master suite with a walk in robe, ducted heating and air conditioning. The enormous guest suite has a large bathroom with floor to ceiling windows that look out into the rainforest and over the fairy lit swing bridge spanning the dam that leads to a newly constructed wellness hut or playroom for your children.
The cooking facilities are a dream with not one but two Kitchens, the first kitchen has long granite/marble benches and two pack pearlescent cabinetry. It is designed to enjoy with guests, and the second kitchen or scullery is behind that kitchen, it is a second full commercial kitchen, which ensures food preparation and party debris is kept out of sight!
A purpose built cinema, complete with popcorn machine, features reclining leather arm chairs arranged in a tiered design, ensuring that all your guests have an uninterrupted view of the big screen. Not only does this cinema come with black out curtains and plush carpet, it also has soft floor lighting that is activated for safety, should anyone need to get up from their seat during a movie.
Working from home has never been so comfortable. The specially designed office, complete with separate entrance and server room, extends out onto a timber deck which over looks a dam complete with “welcome” fountain that automatically bursts into life, when anyone enters the estate.
The master suite is up a level and separated from the main floor by a fabulous retreat over looking the pool and rainforest. The designer unleashed his flair for extravagance and luxury in this area, with cosmopolitan elements being imported from Italy, UK and Melbourne, all working to create a “city” feel contrasting excitingly with the more natural feeling throughout the rest of the property.
The master suite itself sits as if suspended amongst the treetops. Designed for restfulness, the hand crafted glass Lucas Salton green lilies form a row above the bedhead and a TV screen drops down from the ceiling. The enormous floor-to ceiling windows with automatic curtains offer no limit to the rainforest vista and the feeling of being at one with nature.
The sprawling bathroom features a spa bath against a huge window allowing you to rest and gaze on the birdlife whilst bathing. The walk in robe consists of marble topped ebony russo cabinetry built into a large area with hanging railings and drawers.
