Balmoral house with earthy aesthetic hits the market
Coralie Hurley designed this house to be timeless with an earthy twist.
Soak in your choice of indoor and outdoor baths, carved from riverstone, or kick back in the pool.
The house, at 76 Main Ave, Balmoral, is spread across several levels, and has one of a kind features, such as handmade light fixtures and fittings.
Ms Hurley has a passion for renovation, but said she did not realise it for a long time.
“I was just doing it on the side of my main job, and one day I had the epiphany that this is what I love, so I gave up my job and took on property investing full time.”
Ms Hurley has now renovated more than 40 properties, and said they completely gutted this property and rebuilt, keeping only the foundations.
There are four main living levels, with the children’s bedrooms downstairs, the open-plan kitchen, living and dining on level two, and the master suite on level three. On level four is a 70sq m space currently used by Ms Hurley as an office, but it could be converted into an additional two bedrooms and a bathroom.
Splashing around with her grandchildren in the outdoor bath was one of her favourite memories.
“I empty it out and put fresh water in it, and we all jump in together and have a bubble bath.”
The property is being marketed by Trevor Egan of Ray White East Brisbane.
