Sophisticated beach lifestyle
This contemporary apartment features stunning views of one of the Coast’s best beaches – and plenty of stylish spaces from which to take them in
VIEWS of sweeping golden sand, colourful beach umbrellas and a blue ocean create a picture-perfect outlook on the 18th floor of the Reflections on the Sea tower.
Mark Doyle, who bought the aparment at 1802/120 Marine Pde in 2012 to share with his three children, described the views as saturating. “I moved from Melbourne years ago to Tallebudgera and over time I just wanted to get further south where the beaches are the most beautiful,” he said.
“When we lived in Melbourne our family came to Coolangatta for holidays.
“I think what really pushed me over the line to buy here was the beach.”
Mr Doyle, who works in Tugun, says the beaches are rated among the best and he soaks up the view every morning on the balcony with a cup of coffee.
“It is a great way to start the day,” the fatherof-three said. “I love to surf when I get time.”
Built in 2005, the unit has a contemporary style, which Mr Doyle said was functional for his children. “I had Coco Republic style the home,” he said. “I have twin girls and a son who are all in university now and they are doing their own thing and don’t spend too much time at home. “The home has become too big for me.” Mr Boyle said he planned to find a smaller place in the same area.
The apartment has a sophisticated sense of style with sun-washed interiors and brown leather sofas. In the kitchen, granite benchtops create a luxury space overlooking the ocean.
Mr Doyle said he spent more than $100,000 fitting the unit to make it feel like home.
“The floors were carpet when we moved in but I changed it to timber,” he said. “It is a very contemporary style.”
Mr Doyle has since put in automatic blinds, stylish wallpaper and lights.
With three ensuited bedrooms, the apartment also has three broad balconies, which Mr Doyle said were used often for dinners.
The home will go under the hammer on February 15 at 11am in the Harcourts office, at 16 Queensland Ave, Broadbeach.
