‘Nobody sells on Marriott St,’ is the usual catchcry, and for good reason. The iconic art deco home will capture the imagination, sitting high on the ridge, (with some of the best City views) it’s a commonly held view that this street is one of Coorparoo’s best.
Sitting in your bay seat window, book in hand, framed by the detailed ornate ceiling, as soft summer breezes flow gently through your house. It was designed for this, keeping cool during the warmer months yet still holding onto its charm. In the afternoons you can revel in even more of the homes beauty, you can see the glittering light of the sun as it hits the stairway chandelier – custom designed for this home.
Weekends are easy, while the kids splash around in the sparkling pool, you can keep an eye on them as you make lunch. The character glass doors of your new home blend indoor and outdoor living seamlessly and make a fantastic vantage point. When the family is over, you have your choice of outdoor areas, the large entertaining terrace with the built in BBQ and fridge perfect for those hearty family gatherings – or the pool deck to sit with a glass of wine, laugh and enjoy everyone’s company.
Sunset brings a whole new level of enchantment to your home, both your sunroom and upstairs living provide you with prime seats to watch the evening show as the sun sets over the city, making it near impossible not to stop and bask in its beauty.
The night brings further relaxation. You’ve prepared dinner with the kids sitting at the island counter, the spaciousness of the kitchen means the kids can join you and help out without getting in the road. After dinner and a movie in the upstairs second living room (popcorn easily prepared in the kitchenette) you can sit back and enjoy the surreal window framed view. After heading into bed, you sink back into the pillows and look out over the city. You fall asleep to the twinkling lights of the Brisbane city skyline thinking to yourself you could stay on Marriott St for the rest of your life.
