Mid-Century Brunswick

8 Bower Street is a beautifully presented home in an exclusive pocket of the town, surrounded by Brunswick Heads nature reserve. It is one of the quietest streets in the village, with no through traffic and a resident koala who meanders down the street from time to time! The neighbouring properties are comprised of owner-occupier couples and families full of friendly community spirit.

This 1960s Bruns house has had a thoughtful renovation and extension which has made it a stunning home, retaining and highlighting many of the original mid-century features. With polished timber floors throughout, raked ceilings and clever use of clerestory windows that let in ambient light to the open plan living, dining and kitchen space. The northern orientation of these living areas allows the breezes and natural light to flow in, while the large veranda roof shelters the building from the summer heat.

The veranda and entrance of the home are original mid-century with the original breeze blocks, balustrade and glass-paneled front door all featuring. Once through the door, a central hallway leads inside. Two generous bedrooms, both with built-in wardrobes are on either side of the entry. These are serviced by the modern family bathroom, which has a full-size bath and separate shower and is complete with a European-style laundry.  A study nook in the centre of the home is perfect for working from home or completing homework whilst feeling included in family life.

The cosy media room with built-in bookshelves and day bed provides a snug spot for reading a book or watching a movie with friends. This is where the original building ends and the extension begins!

An inviting space awaits. The luxury kitchen is composed of custom cabinetry, 30mm thick stone and timber benchtops, a spacious corner pantry and a 900mm wide Ilve oven. The island bench is large enough for a group to pull up a stool and keep the chef company. The main living and dining areas flow out through two sets of sliding doors to the covered timber entertaining deck. The perfect spot for dinner and drinks as the sun sets.

Back inside the home, at the rear of the property is the master suite, including a well-appointed walk-in robe and ensuite. With louvre windows and views over the gardens, this is a real parent's sanctuary. 

A mix of tropical and native plants fill the garden beds which surround the lush lawn area. The centrepiece of the backyard is a stunning Bowen mango tree, big enough to climb! A 20m² council-approved garden studio is a tranquil multi-purpose space with a mezzanine storage level,  that could be used for a home office/gym/art studio or teenage retreat. 

Just a ten-minute walk or three-minute bike ride to the beach and Brunswick River, you'll be leaving the car behind. The iconic Brunswick Hotel will be your local, and the cafes, shops and restaurants that bring holidaymakers back time after time, will be yours to enjoy all year round.
