Historical Picture: State Library of Queensland “The building has gorgeous lines in it and beautiful curves in the balconies, we really wanted to make sure that was incorporated rather than try and work against it,” Ms Hart said.“We are on the top floor and were one of the first to build in that column, so we were able to make some modifications to the original plans; we’ve got an extra 30cm of ceiling than any of the other apartments because we could go up into the roof.” “All the doors are extra high and there’s internal sliding doors so that we’re not taking up extra floor space.” “Because it’s the penthouse it rises above the tower behind it and it’s the only level that can see right up over the hill, over Queens Gardens, and right up to Palm Island.”“It’s absolutely stunning like seriously the most incredible view — it’s amazing.” The couple also meticulously designed their perfect master-bedroom, which served as an escape from their busy lives as event producers and provided them with ample privacy when they wanted time away from their teenage children. “We really wanted a master-bedroom so that when we closed the door, we were in another world.”“We created a really incredible triple bathroom with a hidden sliding door, and you can lie in the bath and see Magnetic Island.”“There’s a four by four walk in wardrobe with custom built cabinetry, shoe draws, and a makeup cabinet.”RELATED: Contemporary classic with views to cherish With a family kitchen rivalling the set of MasterChef, it features top of the range appliances with an invisible range hood which rises from the stone bench. “We entertained quite a bit so we wanted a kitchen that was really beautiful and functional; we put a hidden butler’s pantry in behind a curved door that opens automatically, and then we did a triple kitchen.”“So we have the butler’s pantry, back wall, middle prep bench with a cook top, and then another space for breakfast eating and more prep on top of a massive dining area.”The Fulton Gardens complex is located in North Ward, and overlooks The Strand, featuring a double pool, gym and two acres of heritage listed gardens. Labor’s policies could deter Townsville investors leaving renters to foot the bill Breathtaking 270 degree views of Castle Hill, Magnetic Island and beyond will never be at risk of being built out, and the balcony spans the width of the apartment.“You’ll never get a building that’s made of that structural quality; with the hallways that big and the space so vast, because it was obviously made as an industrial property,” Ms Hart said.center_img The three-bedroom apartment features a bathroom for every bedroom, and a large living space for family time. It also includes a private office on the ground floor of the complex with connection to NBN, making it perfect for those wanting to work from home or operate a small team of staff.“There’s a fully kitted out office on the ground floor with private entry — so if you work for yourself or if you work from home or have staff that works really well.”“We work for ourselves so it was really-nice to be able to go downstairs to work.” Townsville’s cheapest suburbs More from news01:21Buyer demand explodes in Townsville’s 2019 flood-affected suburbs12 Sep 202001:21‘Giant surge’ in new home sales lifts Townsville property market10 Sep 2020 No expense has been spared in complimenting the original art deco style of 604/53 Gregory Street.

Wisconsin, meanwhile, enjoyed a rare off weekend, and head coach Lisa Stone’s squad looks eager to get back to work against Indiana.“Our bye weekend came at a very good time,” Stone said. “We had the weekend, this weekend off to refresh and recharge and we’re looking forward to having very purposeful practices this week in preparation for Indiana, who’s a really good team.“They had a tough loss at Michigan [Sunday], but …every team in the Big Ten is good, and this second half, we hope, is even better than the first.”While Wisconsin has been the best defensive team in the conference for the majority of the season, currently allowing only 52.3 points per game, Indiana’s offensive attack will pose a challenge.Boasting the Big Ten’s fourth-best scoring offense, the Hoosiers have often relied on their offensive output, as defense has been their crux all year. Allowing 65.8 points per game and posting only a +2 scoring margin over opponents, Indiana finds itself second-worst in both conference categories.“From what I remember, and seeing them play this year, they’re a very quick team looking to run in transition,” senior guard Teah Gant said. “Very guard-heavy, and their guards are really good. Not very tall, so I think we need to really do well in that area, in that post.“We just have to make sure we play as a team, and not one person is guarding individually for our whole team.”Employing a three-guard starting lineup similar to that of the Badgers, the Hoosiers have relied on senior Jamie Braun and juniors Whitney Lindsay and Jori Davis — the team’s leading scorer — for much of their offensive production.“Their guard corps is very good,” Stone said, echoing Gant. “They will zone us the whole game, and it’s a very aggressive, matchup zone, so that’s something that we need to make sure that we attack, find good shots.”For Wisconsin, the Penn State loss saw arguably their worst offensive game of the year.By the end of the 54-43 defeat, the Badgers had posted season lows in points and field goal percentage. In order to return to the form that has seen two four-game win streaks this season, UW will have to rediscover the balanced scoring that characterized the offense throughout the first half of the Big Ten schedule.Junior guard Alyssa Karel has been the Badgers’ leading scorer for the past two years, and has contributed just shy of 14 points per game this season.Complementing her has been junior forward Tara Steinbauer and impressive freshman Taylor Wurtz, averaging 8.3 and 8.1 points per game, respectively. In addition, two other starters average seven-plus a game, while Gant contributes 5.9.“I think we just need to come out with the mentality that we still need to fight in every game,” Gant said. “I think we were down to like three minutes left in the [Penn State] game, and we just needed to come out with even more energy than we did in the first half. So we definitely just have to stick to our principles.”As always, Wisconsin’s principles have included stout defense and limited turnovers. Stone’s squad has posted the sixth-best scoring defense in the nation, and is fifth in the Big Ten in turnover margin at + 1.0. Against the Hoosier zone, taking care of the ball will be at a premium for the Badgers, as will be the aforementioned offensive production.“I think our shot selection can improve,” Stone said. “I think that we need to score more in the post. I thought we passed up some open looks [against Penn State], and those are things we can fix.“We had a film session that we educated our players as to things that they can work on. We move forward,” she continued. “It’s less about the Penn State game and more about how we respond going into the Indiana game, and that’s the full focus.”last_img read more
