‘Lonicera’ is Latin for Honeysuckle. But more commonly in Australia refers to trees or shrubs of the genus Banksia, Protea, Macadamia or Grevillea, which all have flowers in dense spikes...
You’ll be celebrating in style when you purchase this amazing 3-bed, 3-bath modern family home on the water’s edge of Perulpa Bay, looking out to North Stradbroke Island.
Newly renovated throughout with quality finishes and state-of-the-art technology, you can’t help but fall in love with this immaculate abode. 10 Kilto is nestled at the end of a country lane on 1927m2, butting up to hectares of conservation-zoned land and fringed by the calm waters of Macleay Island.
The majestic gates open on command and surveillance cameras capture every move, making your privacy and security a priority. A gravel driveway leads to a carport for two vehicles and parking for larger vans, boats and other toys.
A wide bank of timber steps coax you up to the welcoming front verandah, through the double-entry doors and inside this comfortable home. Or, if you’re still wet from your morning kayak, take the ramp and enter via the convenient mudroom.
No matter how you arrive, you’ll be amazed by the azure-blue vista of the never-to-be-built-out panoramic view. This home has been designed with the living zones in the centre and bedrooms flanked either side; surrounded by deep timber decks for all-year outdoor living.
A spacious Hamptons-style gas kitchen takes centre-stage with its oak benchtops, pressed-metal-look tiles and island bench, complete with wine fridge and SMEG 6-burner free-standing range. Crisp white cabinetry, clever storage spaces and pull-outs, guarantee storage for everything. The plentiful power-points have USB outlets for all-sized technology making this the true ‘hub’ of the home.
An open-plan dining and family room complement the kitchen area, making it an ideal place for gatherings or catching-up while preparing meals. A few steps down and you’re in the enormous sunken-lounge with Masport fireplace and raked ceilings, surrounded by glass-sliders opening onto a choice of decks.
Chic ceiling fans give this room a coastal feel and sense of lux. But you’ll be drawn to the alfresco dining deck, cooled by ceiling fans and shade blinds, capturing spectacular water views and boasting an outdoor kitchen to make entertaining a breeze.
The deck to the North is where the summer action happens, as part of the decking can be removed to reveal an above-ground pool (service recommended as vendor hasn’t used it) and covered-up again, when not in use. Imagine the pool parties with family and friends, enjoying the outdoors on a sun-bleached day, or balmy evening.
The internal features are endless:
- New electrics, ceiling fans and air-con throughout
- Freshly painted, top to bottom
- Floor-to-ceiling toughened & insulated glass to decks
- Wainscoting detail to hallways and entry
- Specialty tiles to all bathrooms and laundry/mudroom

- Timber floors to main living areas
- Expansive decks with wide views
- Outdoor kitchen on main deck
- Slow combustion fireplace & secret wood chute
The master suite on the North-side, has smoky vinyl floors with striking midnight-blue walls. You can feel the opulence in the quality drapes, sliding-door to your private deck, air-con and walk-in-robe (large enough for a nursery or study). The ‘ensuite’, with freestanding bath and separate rainwater shower; Hamptons-style vanity; back-to-wall toilet; picture window; and seafoam-toned floor tiles lapping onto a mermaid-blue, fish-scale-effect feature wall—create a relaxed day-spa experience.
Bedroom 2 is queen-sized and has an ensuite with feature penny-rammed tiles, in a restful sage and milk-thistle colour combo. The laundry/mudroom completes this side of the home and has Moroccan-style feature tiles, nifty drying rack, loads of storage and provides alternative access to the outdoors.
Bedroom 3 can be found in the South wing, past the kitchen. It’s queen-sized, has air-con, a private viewing deck and a walk-thru robe to an oversized ensuite. Continuing with the theme of sage penny-rammed feature tiles and milk-thistle floor tiles, it’s very spacious and offers convenient guest access from the living area.
Espy the sunrise over Straddie watching the dugongs, turtles, dolphins and fish at play in this secret haven. Amble down to the water and take a gentle stroll to the nearby sandy beach. Or, relax in a hammock while watching the kids, knowing they are safe in your fully-fenced and gated yard, right to the high-tide mark.
There’s plenty of birdlife in this backyard with a combination of native trees and tropical varieties providing an open-buffet.
Life is good here.
