THE Fox fam­ily had al­ways ad­mired their friend’s sprawl­ing Ash­more home but never imag­ined liv­ing in it.

A year ago, Gold Coast­ers Julie and Mark Fox were in need of more space for their fam­ily of six.

“Mark came home one af­ter­noon and said he found some­thing that would be per­fect for our fam­ily,” Mrs Fox said. “It was our friend’s house.”

The fam­ily bought the home 12 months ago and put their own touches on it.

“Our friend was down­siz­ing and we needed more space, so it was good for both of us,” Mrs Fox said.

Be­hind se­cure gates, the prop­erty has 2114sq m of land­scaped lawns which sur­rounds the con­tem­po­rary res­i­dence. The prop­erty is also home to a two-bed­room self-con­tained guest flat. The main home fea­tures stacker doors and an open-plan liv­ing area.

“We trans­formed the home of­fice into an­other bed­room,” Mrs Fox said.

“My favourite part of the home is the lounge room, the out­look to the Hin­ter­land is re­ally spe­cial and it fills that room.”

The home is el­e­vated to capture breezes and is lo­cated in a leafy area.

“There is so much space but we can all still be to­gether,” the mother-of-four said.

“When Mark is not work­ing he loves to paint and cre­ate and this home has been per­fect for that.”

The five-bed­room home comes with an art stu­dio wing, me­dia room and is 15 min­utes to the beach.
