Cairns homes blend outdoor and indoor living spaces for families

first_imgThis home entertainment room will fit the whole family for movie night.Mr Quaid said the property wasn’t just for the immediate family either. The large entertaining area also allows for get-togethers and sleep overs. “This is an ideal home for a larger family or those that like to entertain, with five full size bedrooms in addition to a generous rumpus room to the front,” he said. “With good separation though it means that whether you have younger or older children, or a mix, everyone has their own space and privacy.”He said the owners of the property were sad to let go of this one-of-a-kind home, but hoped it would change hands to another family that would enjoy it as much as they had. “The current owners have found it an amazing place for their children to grow and there will no doubt be tears when they say goodbye,” he said. The stunning family home, built on 758m² of land, is nestled in the leafy green Panguna Valley Estate, a spot that Mr Quaid described as in high demand. “Panguna Valley Estate has been one of the most sought-after residential communities on the Northern Beaches for the past decade and more, offering larger lots, privacy, family friendly parks and paths and of course the benefit of being surrounded by nature – with many lots either backing onto forest or enjoying the leafy outlook,” he said. “As new construction leans towards smaller allotments, we see the value of communities like this only improving.”56 Leonard St is for sale for $780,000. Inspections are by appointment only by calling Tom Quaid on 0400 773 444 or Quaid Real Estate on 4050 1412. Light flows into the home to combine indoor and outdoor living spaces.He said open plan living and plenty of glass windows and walls made this home perfect for merging indoor and outdoor living. “A modern home built to a high standard, like much of the surrounding area, 56 Leonard Street nonetheless stands out for its exceptional use of space, with wide open-plan living areas and natural transition between indoor and outdoor entertaining, stepping from cool tiles to timber decking and out to the privately positioned pool,” he said.

Quaid Real Estate sales manager Tom Quaid said 56 Leonard St in Kewarra Beach’s Panguna Valley Estate embodied that philosophy. The five-bedroom, two-bathroom home has space for a large family and visitors and provides a spacious outdoor entertaining space. Mr Quaid said families were increasingly looking for homes in Cairns that would allow for an easy blend of outdoor and indoor living options for parents and play options for kids. “Most of the time people that move to Cairns are here for the climate and the lifestyle – we may as well make the most of it,” he said. last_img read more
