Stylish Smithfield home stars as entertainment hub

first_img19 Amaroo Cl, Smithfield.THEY left Perth in search of their dream tropical home and were not left disappointed.John and Dawn Hielscher have spent almost a decade enjoying this unique Smithfield property. “We had been to Cairns before and knew we one day would come back and get a house,” Mrs Hielscher said.“We flew over, saw this place, and bought it pretty much then and there.”Views of the city and ocean can be enjoyed from a sprawling timber deck, built into which is a well-kept and frequented pool.Mrs Hielscher, a part-time nurse and Bunnings employee, said their home and entertaining went hand-in-hand.“During football season we’ll put on the projector and fire up the barbecue, and everyone sits around the deck to enjoy the game,” she said. But the majestic outdoor living area, on the doorstep of tropical rainforest, can also be a haven for peace and quiet. “I sit on the deck every morning with a coffee. You see the sun coming up and catch the breeze, which really sets you up for the rest of the day,” Mrs Hielscher said. “You can look out to Green Island and watch planes coming in.“John’s family is from interstate and mine overseas, so when people come and stay in this tropical tree house they absolutely love it.” The three bedrooms have their own balconies, while timber floors and an attractive kitchen and bathroom add to its appeal.
