Mount Gravatt East ultra-modern family abode to go to auction

first_imgThe pool has a water feature. This is the ultimate ensuite.Mrs Kassolos said they also ensured all of the bedrooms were oversized to allow room for a desk as the children grew.Her favourite room of the house, however, was the kitchen.“It’s the hub of the house,” she said. “I can entertain there — the bench is nearly 4.5m.“I’m always prepping food on there or having people sit there.“It flows to outside as well and it is a good entertainment home.” The kitchen, living and dining all link to the alfresco dining area.The couple dived in headfirst and worked with local architect John Contoleon to design a large two-level family home for the 31 Spent St address at Mount Gravatt East.Mrs Kassolos said her husband was a builder and they wanted to stay away from the current Hamptons trend, creating something ultra-modern instead. The walk-in wardrobe is a dream come true. The house at 31 Spence St, Mount Gravatt East, is for sale.WORKING with a partner on a project as big as building a house is not for the faint of heart.Yet Jessie and Michael Kassolos pulled off their first build together — and they certainly did not start small. The black kitchen is offset with white benches and timber features.“We wanted something different for the local area,” Mrs Kassolos said.“It’s dark outside and fresh inside with whites, the timber and the black kitchen.”More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus13 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market13 hours agoWith two children, it was essential that the house worked well for a family.“We sat down together and I said I want a house that flows easily and is going to be kid friendly.“I like the fact the toy room slash media room is near the kitchen and I can see out to the pool area and outside so I can still see them if they are running around.” Watch the kids in the pool from the alfresco dining area.Mrs Kassolos said she also loved the master suite, which ran the whole length of the house and almost half the width.The ensuite has a long vanity with dual sinks, and there is a double shower as well as a bath.Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayNext playlist itemMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 1:44Loaded: 0%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -1:44 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedQuality Levels720p720pHD540p540p288p288p180p180pAutoA, selectedAudio Tracken (Main), selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Flat stars granted go-ahead

first_img The Irish Turf Club approved O’Brien’s application, while the British Horseracing Authority has given Hughes permission to compete. O’Brien is set to partner recent Leopardstown winner Shield for his father Aidan, with Hughes aboard Sgt Reckless for trainer Mick Channon. Joseph O’Brien and Richard Hughes, reigning champion Flat jockeys in Ireland and Britain respectively, have been granted jumps licences to ride in the Weatherbys Champion Bumper at Cheltenham on Wednesday. Press Associationcenter_img Although Hughes has been in action at Cheltenham in the past and is due to help out his father Dessie at the meeting, it will be a new experience for O’Brien. “He has been approved to ride in the bumper. He’ll have an Irish National Hunt licence for a year,” said Denis Egan, chief executive of the Irish Turf Club. BHA spokesman Robin Mounsey added: “Hughes was granted his jumps licence on Thursday to ride.” Michael Channon junior, Channon’s son and assistant, said: “As long as Hughesie has got everything through he will be riding. It’s hard on Dominic (Elsworth), who has done nothing wrong, but it is a Flat race and Hughesie is the champion jockey. “Of course, if Hughesie wasn’t riding the ride would be Dominic’s.” last_img read more

We’ve drawn a pool that’s got some strength in it, that’s okay. We know South Africa well, we know they will be tough,” said the All Blacks’ head coach.”Italy are an improving side and we don’t know yet who the qualifiers are going to be. We can assume they will be good sides if they’re going to make it, so it is what it is.”Hansen can also see why a Pool C which includes England, France and Argentina has already been billed as the group of death.”There are some very tough pools, Pool C is also very tough and eventually if you’re going to win the thing you’ve got to play all the good teams, so we are happy now.” “We’ve just got to find out where the games are going to be played, so we can get our planning set.”last_img read more
