AF­TER liv­ing in Vancouver for three months, home­own­ers John and Julie Simp­son wanted to cre­ate a Cana­di­an­in­spired abode back home.

“My hus­band John and I spent a bit of time in Vancouver stay­ing with our daugh­ter who was liv­ing and work­ing there,” Mrs Simp­son said.

“When we came back to the Gold Coast the coun­try style house had re­ally grown on us and we wanted to build one for our­selves.”

The four-bed­room, four-bath­room house took the cou­ple 12 months to build.

“We bought the block in 2012 and set to work on the bare block pretty quickly,” Mr Simp­son said.

The cou­ple said Tam­borine Mountain was the per­fect lo­ca­tion for the style of house they wanted to build.

With Amer­i­can Oak floors and im­ported fin­ishes from the US in­clud­ing the toi­let roll hold­ers, Mrs Simp­son said she could not have imag­ined any­thing bet­ter.

“We had a lo­cal de­signer to help us, Ben­nett De­sign and Part­ners who are based on the mountain,” she said.

The cou­ple’s de­sign re­quest in­cluded high ceil­ings, sev­eral out­door sit­ting spa­ces and most im­por­tantly at­ten­tion to de­tail.
