Angles on fine design
Among Ray White Broadbeach’s busy week of sales has been the deal struck for an architect-designed waterfront home in Emerald Lakes
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.
