THIS Hamp­tons-in­spired wa­ter­front home at Sor­rento is what dreams are made of.

It ex­udes lux­ury with a white in­te­rior, modern fix­tures and a range of nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als in­clud­ing oak, Car­rara mar­ble and pol­ished stone through­out.

Ex­ten­sive ren­o­va­tions have re­freshed the five-bed­room home’s style.

Ven­dor Troy Lee said the home at 9 Rowes Court looked com­pletely dif­fer­ent when he bought it in 2015.

He and his part­ner, Alita, fell in love with it from the mo­ment they set eyes on it.

“We only looked at the prop­erty one day be­fore (we bought it),” Mr Lee said. How­ever, they knew it needed work. From re­plac­ing the prop­erty’s wiring and plumb­ing to in­stalling new bath­rooms and a kitchen, the cou­ple have trans­formed the home.

“It was great fun, it came up re­ally well,” Mr Lee said.

He said the home’s Bali hut was a stand­out fea­ture when they bought the home.

“It was prob­a­bly one of the largest we’ve ever seen on a prop­erty,” Mr Lee said.

They have since turned it into what’s af­fec­tion­ately known as the “beach pavil­ion”.

“The beach pavil­ion is prob­a­bly our favourite spot,” Mr Lee said.

“It ties the in­side of the house to the out­side.”

The home sits on an 875sq m par­cel of land.

Bi-fold doors open the com­bined liv­ing, din­ing and kitchen area up onto the beach pavil­ion and ter­raced area, which over­looks the wa­ter and Gold Coast sky­line.

Mr Lee said the space was per­fect for en­ter­tain­ing guests.

There is also a pool sur­rounded by a trop­i­cal gar­den, sun­bathing deck and pon­toon out­side.

Mr Lee also loved the de­signer kitchen’s mar­ble is­land bench­top, which he sourced specif­i­cally for the home.

It also has a four-car garage, ducted and zoned air­con­di­tion­ing and a se­cured boat shed.
