Beach house with a modern twist
A laid back, minimalist style is often associated with the traditional beach house but this Mermaid Waters home is among the more luxury designs redefining the term
THIS Mermaid Waters home is far from the traditional beach house.
The modern design and neutral tones give the multi-level house at 20 Seabeach Ave a sense of sophistication – a stark contrast to the laid back, minimalist style often associated with a beach shack.
It is what owner Brent Martens likes best about the property, which is just 100m from the beach.
He and his wife bought the property in February, 2017 and quickly set to renovating the inside, including replacing the flooring and refreshing the kitchen and bathrooms.
Now they are selling their beloved home.
“We’re looking at building, that’s the only reason — we love the house,” Mr Martens, who is the business development manager at Harcourts Coastal, said.
“We’ve done it several times, I guess it’s just onto the next project now.”
He said the lounge room, which flowed onto the outdoor entertainment area when the sliding glass doors were opened, was his favourite part of the home.
“You sit there and look out to the pool, it’s great,” Mr Martens said.
“You can hear the ocean from the house – at night you can hear the ocean when you go to sleep.”
