Dream kitchen — tick.“I’ve used architects, designers and builders over the years and it was obvious what I wanted to do. “I’m an engineer but I had an engineer and draughtsman, and the layout and design were pretty straightforward.”Mr Rogers described the finished product as, “honest, a large Queenslander that’s very contemporary”. Not only is it a beautiful, double-storey, north-facing residence with a swimming pool, but its address falls in the desirable inner-city Teneriffe Hill pocket.

(AAP Image/Steve Pohlner)MICHAEL Rogers’ tenth renovation project proudly rates as one of his best. The successful businessman was drawn to transforming a circa 1930s Queensland workers’ cottage after discovering the rare Teneriffe listing for sale more than two years ago.“I’d been living in Melbourne, Sydney and Europe for the last 25 years, but I grew up in Brisbane and the first flat I rented as a student was in New Farm,” Mr Rogers, pictured, said.“I’ve always been attracted to the area and I wanted a Queenslander because I just love them. I think they’re very beautiful and quite iconic, and I found this one which was just perfect because it was in really great shape, needed to be completely remodelled, but it was in very, very good condition.”Mr Rogers said the house — located at 2 Waverley St, Teneriffe — would have originally been constructed to accommodate workers at the nearby wharves and it had been altered over time before he embarked on a nine-month renovation. “It was a big job as the bones were here, but I’ve changed everything,” he said.
