Australia - Lake Tinaroo Hinterland Retreat
Our Lake Tinaroo architecturally designed retreat has the best of modern amenities in a relaxing atmosphere. Enjoy spectacular views from both indoor and outdoor living areas which flow beautifully from the expansive decks to the entertainer’s kitchen and to the games room complete with pool table. The home is constructed over two levels with extensive use of natural elements all sourced locally by bespoke craftsmen.
The house was designed with both entertaining and relaxation as the main priorities. The home was completely renovated in 2014 whilst still maintaining the historical character pieces of the home. The cosy fireplace serves as the centrepiece to the indoor living areas. The backdrop to the wet bar is framed with a full size original 1920’s Queensland Bank vault door which now acts a functioning scullery to the area. The wet bar cleverly serves the deck areas through fully retractable sliding doors bringing the outside in.
There are two separate living areas the smaller of which can be completely closed off with bi-fold doors and a fold out leather lounge for those quieter moments. The smaller area leads onto the rear balcony with access to the stone pizza oven and seating area. The larger living area includes an 8 person dining table and servery to the kitchen. With ample seating surrounding the fire place it’s the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine and good company.
The designer kitchen hosts granite benchtops and top of the line European appliances including double sided Liebherr refrigerator and freezer. The area is equipped with a butlers pantry. The kitchen leads out to the fully furnished outdoor BBQ area complete with commercial dishwasher, wine and beer fridges.
The bedrooms are situated on the mezzanine level of the home, where the expansive use of glass picture frames the lake and surrounding area.
The master suite is complete with king bed enjoying floor to ceiling glass windows with views of the lake and hinterland. There is ample drawer and hanging space .The ensuite was designed with practical luxury in mind again maximizing natural elements with copper finishes and the luxury of a rain shower.
The beautifully decorated queen bedroom faces North East and enjoys the early morning sun and the afternoon refreshing breezes. This bedroom maximizes views of the tributary where Platypus can be spotted at dusk. Offering plenty of storage and only steps to the full bathroom it’s the perfect place to retire for the evening.
The functional twin bedroom has plenty of natural light and the bi-fold doors allow the guests extra privacy or not as required. This bedroom can utilise either of the full bathrooms on the upper or lower levels.
All bedrooms have automatic blinds for those extra-long lie in mornings. Air conditioning is not required in this very temperate climate of the Tablelands so each room is equipped with remote control whisper quiet fans to be used as necessary.
The games room offers a custom full size pool table with big screen TV. The sliding doors lead out to a large seated patio area again making the most of outdoor living. The games room has board games and plenty of seating for family fun! There is the added bonus of Bed-In-A-Bag bean bags throughout.

Beautiful private home in the heart of the Tablelands
Spectacular open plan first floor with a large deck that could turn into a screened in sun porch at the touch of a button. This home is a birder's paradise and well appointed and maintained. Your neighbors include wallabees, gray kangaroos, tree kangaroos and platypus. We had fun biking through the avocado, banana, and tea farms and hiking in the rainforest and around nearby lakes.”
