The wind may be chilly, and the days short, but there are plenty of tasty morsels on offer to warm you up in Brisbane.
July is Good Food Month, with a host of events planned until August 5, including the Night Noodle Markets at South Bank.
But if the thought of taking off your slippers and stepping out into the cold is just too much to bear, these three homes could be the solution.
Each one offers an entertainer’s kitchen and plenty of space to host your own noodle night.
First up is 55 Lytham St at Indooroopilly. This stunning environmentally-focused residence has not one but two kitchens – an everyday kitchen downstairs and a “show kitchen” that flows out onto Japanese-inspired alfresco areas. And when your guests are done eating, they can float in the statement pool with its own waterfall feature.
Place New Farm agent Matthew Foote said the show kitchen was “amazing”, and had its own hidden butlers pantry to keep cooking and cleaning off the dedicated entertaining benches.
Mr Foote said a number of people had been through the house, which was designed with entertaining in mind.
The showpiece kitchen at 10 Morgan St at Ascot comes with modern, commercial grade calacatta marble and is equipped to a standard fit for any professional chef.
It comes with top-of-the-line appliances, its own scullery and oversized bar, and flows into the open plan dining room, an outdoor entertaining area and upper terrace with city views. The house also has its own climate-controlled wine cellar.
It is on the market for sale by negotiation, and is being marketed by Ray White New Farm agent Matt Lancashire.
Also fit for a MasterChef is 316 Settlement Road at The Gap.
The house sits on an elevated 7327sq m block, and comes with a chef’s kitchen featuring marble stone benchtops, soft close drawers, Smeg inductive stove, island bench with integrated wine fridge and a gourmet butlers pantry with second sink and soft closing glass door.
It is listed for offers over $1.35 million.
Harcourt Solutions – Inner West agent Carmen Briggs said the kitchen was a “true entertainer”.
“When I saw that kitchen I thought ‘wow’,” she said.
