Upon arrival, it is clear that Tousalanda is one of the finest private residences in Port Douglas. Designed by Sydney Architect John Brogan on the 120-degree hexagonal principles established by the legendary 20th-century architect Frank Lloyd Wright, the meticulous attention to detail and well-considered appointments appear at every turn. Architectural details such as the custom exterior light fittings, a handcrafted wrought iron staircase with punctuations of slump glass, and timber-paneled ceilings exemplify the well-considered plan behind this sophisticated and comfortable place to call home.
Nestled in a tropical oasis, Tousalanda is shaded by mature Bismarckia and Lipstick palms, lush ginger gardens and accentuated by pavers stepping toward the two-level main residence. Custom double doors provide entry to the Chillagoe marble-tiled floors and exquisite interiors.
On the main residence ground level, an open house plan lounge room featuring an American Oak-clad near six-metre high ceiling connects to a spacious gourmet kitchen and breakfast room. Kitchen amenities include Miele appliances, an air-conditioned walk-in pantry, and separate cold room. Adjoining the lounge area and the kitchen is a formal dining room. Bespoke joinery throughout the home is aesthetically ventilated with duckboard panels.
A retractable pivoting glass door system blends the indoor spaces with an outdoor veranda purposed as the alfresco dining area and outdoor lounge seating cooled by prevailing sea breezes and ceiling fans. There are a media room, office and gymnasium fitted with an acoustical floor system, and bathroom highlighted by an outdoor garden.
A deep-water solar heated swimming pool with a recirculating water spa and a manicured lawn are buffered by a 50-metre rainforest reserve to Four Mile Beach and the Coral Sea. A thatched-roof pergola is equipped with an outdoor kitchen with log-burning fireplace and includes a guest powder room and outdoor shower.
Separated from the main living areas on the next level are a master bedroom suite with a luxurious ensuite and walk-in dressing room. There is a second bedroom, yet an unanticipated bonus is a self-contained guest suite with kitchenette, bathroom, king bedroom, and lounge area. A roof garden and private entrance complete the guest suite. The house is fully screened.
Pristinely maintained, Tousalanda awaits its next owner. Offered to the Tousalanda purchaser is the option to purchase the neighboring house and land.
