"The Tardis" Yeppoon

The streetscape of this pretty 1950's beach cottage conceals the architect-designed extension, which morphs into a huge tropical lifestyle idyll.

With more than 3/4 acres in the coastal growth town of Yeppoon, and easy walking/cycling access to beaches, shops, cafes, new waterparks and schools, this property is a rare find - and reluctant sale by owners of 25 years.

The original one-bedroom construction has been transformed into an open-plan living area. The timber-framed windows, polished timber floors and magnificent leadlight provide a connection to the original period. The new granite-topped kitchen with Bosch dishwasher, gas/electric oven, rangehood, new lighting, walk-in pantry and new air-conditioner add modern comforts and an elegant ease of future living.

The large 3 bedroom cathedral extension is connected via a covered walkway with courtyards either side providing peaceful privacy. All bedrooms have verandahs, are very generous in size and have filtered garden and courtyard views. The master bedroom with ensuite and walk-through robe has direct access to a courtyard and a beach themed feature wall. The two other adjacent bedrooms are mirror imaged - each containing a large study nook and built-in cupboards. All bedrooms promote louvred ventilation, as well as air conditioners for those balmy Summer nights. The separating breezeway between the bedrooms is another living area where family and friends gather in a relaxed atmosphere created by the sheltered views of nearby water feature and established gardens. The numerous courtyards are easily transformed to an entertainers paradise at night with the surrounding energy efficient spotlights creating a tropical fairyland.

The utilitarian shed conceptually divides the property, with an expansive backyard beyond. The bespoke raised garden beds provide organic herbs and veggies for the kitchen, as well as edible flowers for a local cafe. A 5000L rainwater tank with pump feeds the watering system. Tropical native fruit and nut trees and small rainforest area are also well established, with an easily maintained open lawn. (Ride-on negotiable!) The birdlife is prolific, diverse and awesome.

The Tardis has already seen lots of adventures over Time (And Relative Dimensions In Space), and is geared for the next exciting future.
