Driftwood Cottage – Tin Can Bays Iconic Queenslander!
2 Bream Street, Tin Can Bay QLD 4580
Beautifully retained character features combine effortlessly with contemporary updates, making this a character-rich, indoor-outdoor home ideal for lifestyle living at its finest. Standing on an elevated and private 938m2 allotment a short stroll to the tranquil waters of the bay, this is a stand out opportunity.
This magnificent character home has been lovingly restored piece by piece over the period of 5 years and now is a picture of perfection! I have had the pleasure of watching the transformation and hearing the stories of discovery and preservation along the way enriching the character and uniqueness of this masterpiece.
Outdoor living is honed and the tropical gardens encompass the home creating a sense of relaxation and privacy from neighbours and the outside world. Once you make it through the wonder of the stunning greenery there is so much to love and explore. Spotted gum verandas are spectacular to look at and durable, generous and well orientated offering 3m by 9m of northeast facing verandas, breakfast will be gorgeous served here.
Upon entering the home be wowed by soaring ceilings and beautifully polished floorboards, some new, some original and wide-open spaces! Ornate original details and delicate restorations are evident as you venture though to the brand-new kitchen! VJ board ceiling is a design centrepiece and the restored polished timber floors perfectly frame the modern kitchen. Stainless steel appliances, including dishwasher, gas cooktop and external rangehood. Generous workspaces and storage have created a very practical and beautiful kitchen. Well positioned with direct access to the deck, Summer dinners will most likely be served alfresco!
Boasting 3 bedrooms upstairs plus a sitting room, plus a study this home is a great size and yours to define! The Primary suite is just divine with shadow mould ceiling, custom feature ply ceiling, custom cabinetry, and lush ensuite! 2 of the bedrooms feature New Guinea Rose Wood French doors straight on the wrap around verandas.
Important to note both bathrooms are brand new. Not restored. They are sparkling new, and beautiful! Full size bathtub in the main bathroom, open rain shower and large suspended vanity forms the line up and you will not be disappointed in the styling or the finish!
The living area is spacious and open however retains a sense of cosiness as it is central to the home with all rooms leading from this area. It really is the comfortable cosy hub of home.
The deck! It’s a vibe! I won’t bore you with too many specifications but let’s just say its over engineered, its 6m by 6m, its insulated with high fly over span line ceilings. It really is a masterpiece! Internal access directly to the kitchen, or staircase access to ground level, or take a stroll around the verandas. And that’s just upstairs!…..
The lower level of the home is practicality personified! Offering 5 car covered and secured car accommodation and not to mentioned high clearance. The underneath of the home has easy double garage everyday parking straight from the street plus parking further internal and secure 2 car accommodation plus a further 2 car parks under the deck. All of these areas are custom designed with concrete and easy access.
Storage is covered under the home, this area has high clearance, power water, a 3rd toilet and is really as clean and impressive as the rest of the home! 2 rainwater tanks you will find tucked away neatly under the front veranda; these are 5000L each with an attached pressure pump. Solar power has been installed offering 6KW of environmentally friendly energy.
Do not delay! This impeccable home will sell quickly! Contact Clare from Clare Estate Agents to register your interest in a private viewing or attending one of our open home events. Nibbles and Champagne supplied.
