RAY White Broad­beach/ Mer­maid Wa­ters agents Sam Guo and Ju­lia Kuo have had a busy week ne­go­ti­at­ing three big sales.

Among them was a three-bed­room house at 5005 Emer­ald Is­land Drive, Car­rara that sold for $1.18 mil­lion.

The home was de­signed by well-known Gold Coast ar­chi­tect the late Peter Jansen. Nes­tled on a 708sq m waterfront block in Emer­ald Lakes the quirky en­try way fea­tures sym­met­ri­cal wa­ter fea­tures, stained glass and ge­o­met­ri­cally shaped win­dows.

The dis­tinct nod to the Frank Lloyd Wright era of or­ganic ar­chi­tec­ture con­tin­ues with the kitchen and living ar­eas of this im­mac­u­late home. “There isn’t a square room in the house, an­gles were a big thing for dad and you don’t re­ally see that type of ar­chi­tec­ture around any more,” his daugh­ter Sa­man­tha Wil­son told the Bul­letin when the house hit the mar­ket.

“Now there is a trend of boxy style houses that are ul­tra-mod­ern,” Ms Wil­son said. There is an ex­ten­sive use of nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als, in­clud­ing tex­tured slate walls.

Mr Guo and Ms Kuo’s other sales in­cluded 114 Sir Bruce Small Blvd, Benowa Wa­ters, which sold to a Chi­nese buyer for $1.67 mil­lion and 79 Ed­in­burgh Drive, Benowa Wa­ters, which changed hands for $1.6 mil­lion.
