Fam­ily liv­ing at fore­front of de­sign

Ex­ten­sively ren­o­vated 18 months ago, this South­port res­i­dence is the epit­ome of a con­tem­po­rary fam­ily home from the spa­cious back­yard to the large liv­ing spaces

VEN­DOR Michelle Cur­rie had “four or five years” of prop­erty flip­ping un­der her belt when she came across an older house on a cor­ner block in South­port.

“I knew I had a gem as soon as I saw it, I just fell in love with the area, it’s quiet but close to every­thing” Mrs Cur­rie said.

“Es­pe­cially when I went up to the roof and saw the view, I knew if we built up­wards we could cap­ture sky­line views.”

True to her word, the mas­ter suite sits on the top level with a pri­vate bal­cony of­fer­ing the spec­tac­u­lar vista.

The rest of the res­i­dence is just as stun­ning, fea­tur­ing glossy black and white fin­ishes and a mag­nif­i­cent pool set­ting.

“We nor­mally do a mod­est, quick ren­o­va­tion but the ar­chi­tect went above and be­yond,” Mrs Cur­rie said.

“In say­ing that, I’m not a typ­i­cal prop­erty flip­per, it’s very much about de­sign for me and I wanted this prop­erty to be the dream fam­ily home.”

Hav­ing wel­comed a baby seven months ago and with two stepchil­dren, Mrs Cur­rie and her hus­band knew what was re­quired.

“Open plan liv­ing is num­ber one, and space to put a tram­po­line or cubby house in, we made sure we had a beau­ti­ful lawn space.”
