WHEN Niki and Luis Aguado bought their prop­erty at Broad­beach Wa­ters in Jan­uary 2016, it was ei­ther to knock it down or put it through a mas­sive ren­o­va­tion.

They de­cided on the knock down with the only part of the orig­i­nal prop­erty they re­tained the swim­ming pool - which also got a ren­o­va­tion.

The cou­ple then set about cre­at­ing a fivebed­room home with Hamp­tons’ in­flu­ences.

“It is a bit of a mod­ern Hamp­tons, it is not a real tra­di­tional Hamp­tons, we took a lot of as­pects from Hamp­tons and just mod­ernised it a bit,’’ Mrs Aguado said.

Mrs Aguado said the block was so good they weren’t con­strained in what they wanted to build on the site.

Her favourite part of the home is the main living area which leads out to a large al­fresco area.

“(This) goes down to a grassed area as well, so it is just good for hang­ing out dur­ing the day and also a good en­ter­tain­ing area,’’ she said.

Mrs Aguado said the home also had three lounge ar­eas.

“The main lounge and living room, me­dia or for­mal lounge and then up­stairs par­ents’ or chil­dren’s re­treat lounge.

“I think it is a per­fect fam­ily home, we have built it so that you can have the fam­ily up­stairs and guest rooms down­stairs.’’

In the main bed­room is a walk-in wardrobe and en­suite with a dual shower, rain shower and free­stand­ing bath­tub.

The house sits on a 719sq m block and has Gold Coast sky­line views.

In­side the main foyer of the five-bed­room, 4.5 bath­room home are 5.5 me­tre high ceil­ings.

There are mul­ti­ple living ar­eas through­out the home while the spa­cious kitchen has wa­ter­fall edge stone benches, dual ovens, in­te­grated ap­pli­ances and a large but­ler’s pantry.

There is also a win­dow splash­back in the kitchen.

This area flows through to an open plan living and din­ing room, which then leads through to an out­door din­ing area.

This cov­ered space has a fully-equipped out­door kitchen, which over­looks the ren­o­vated 8m by 3.5m in­fin­ity pool and sunken spa.

Be­yond that is a pon­toon and a boat ramp, and a 17m sandy beach-frontage, flanked by trop­i­cal palms.

Back in­side the house, the other up­stairs bed­rooms have en­suites while down­stairs, the fourth and fifth bed­rooms share a bath­room.

There is key­less en­try to the home, ducted air­con­di­tion­ing and se­cu­rity cam­eras as well as re­mote se­cu­rity gates.
