Roof-top ter­race per­fect for par­ties

The own­ers have trans­formed an un­fin­ished build­ing into a seven-bed­room mas­ter­piece, de­vel­op­ing a warm in­dus­trial style

Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - Property - - AUCTION -

TOW­ER­ING five lev­els, this mega Mer­maid Beach man­sion with a rooftop bar and sauna could eas­ily be mis­taken for a lux­ury resort.

Owner Gra­ham Pasin said the fam­ily fielded a lot of com­ments from neigh­bours when they pur­chased the in­com­plete seven-bed­room build­ing two years ago.

“It was known as a very iconic house,” the fa­ther of three said. “Some peo­ple ac­tu­ally wanted to know if the house was pre­vi­ously a ho­tel that we had ren­o­vated into a home.

“It was ba­si­cally a raw build­ing when we found it. The pre­vi­ous owner went broke when he was build­ing and there were in­com­plete floors and light­ing as well as a bare rooftop. At the time we had just moved from Mt Tam­borine, af­ter liv­ing on acreage prop­erty for 14 years, and we were look­ing for some­where close to the beach.

“The mod­ern de­sign re­ally caught our eye and we knew we could make it a re­ally com­fort­able fam­ily home.”

It is the fifth ren­o­va­tion project for the cou­ple.

“Ren­o­vat­ing homes is a side­line hobby Tracy and I re­ally en­joy,” the man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Ilearn Ed­u­ca­tion Group said.

“This house was very mod­ern but we wanted to cre­ate a warm in­dus­trial style inside. It is a very solid build­ing and it is very dif­fer­ent from any­thing we have ever lived in be­fore.

“We put in an ex­tra bath­room, a games room and synthetic grass on the rooftop ter­race.”

Mr Pasin de­scribed the rooftop ter­race as the best spot – with room to fit 80 peo­ple and a live band.

“There are not many homes with rooftops like this one,” he said.

“We have had many birth­day par­ties up there and the 360 de­gree views are breath­tak­ing.”

The res­i­dence in­cludes a self-con­tained, two-bed­room unit with a pri­vate court­yard.
