This home will have you climbing the walls

first_img The owners got Smith Architects to overhaul the 1980s house.The home at 22 Ellesmere Street, Yeronga, in Brisbane, sits on a 405sq m block and has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a double garage. But this is not your average suburban home, with the property having its own in-built adventure.Agent Jane Elvin of LJ Hooker Annerley-Yeronga listed the property as “one of a kind”.Smith Architects designed the extension and renovation of the property four years ago, describing it on their site as “adventurous living”. The climbing wall embraces the owners’ love of mountaineering.“A client with a love of mountain sports and a growing family formed the foundation for this adventurous transformation and extension,” Smith Architects said of the home.“The trust the client had in our design process allowed us to experiment with an internal climbing wall and a complete reorientation of the house which closely reflected their priorities.”“The entry sequence through a series of contrasting enclosed and open space take guests on a unique journey before arriving at the rear private living spaces.”Ms Elvin said “adventurous this home certainly is” with the climbing wall feature in the family zone. Concrete floors keep the home low maintenance.“If a love of climbing is not your style, don’t let that stop you from inspecting as the climbing wall could be removed to create a double height living room that will blend beautifully with the rest of the home.”But she said “the little kids and big kids can enjoy the climbing wall still feeling connected to the home and outdoor activities”.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus8 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market8 hours ago Stunning use of wood and glass to bring the outdoors in.“This wall as mentioned can be removed which will enlarge this room, or you can leave as a feature as it is sure to be a focal point and a larger than life art piece on the wall.”She said the home would suit young couples, established families and downsizers alike.“It is certainly something special with or without the climbing wall. Not only a stunning home, but located in a highly sought after, prestige residential street of Yeronga with a North South aspect.”The price guide for the property is around $1m with the home to be sold by negotiation. Yeronga is just 5km from the Brisbane CBD. MORE COURIER-MAIL REAL ESTATE NEWS MORE NEWS Darius and Kayla Boyd’s amazing new home revealed Room to run and play at the back too.
