Whit­sun­day home to ‘star’ on na­tional TV

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

ANNE McDon­ald couldn’t be­lieve it when she was con­tacted by Best Houses Australia.

The Aus­tralian tele­vi­sion se­ries show­cases some of the most stunning homes in the coun­try, so it is no small feat that lo­cal busi­ness In­tegrity New Homes Whit­sun­days has made the cut.

Ms McDon­ald, who is a sales con­sul­tant with the new home builder, said the show’s pro­duc­ers wanted to do a fea­ture on one of their de­signs.

“And we were in the throes of fin­ish­ing a luxury build in Illa­wong Cres­cent in Can­non­vale,” Ms McDon­ald said.

The dou­ble-storey home in ques­tion is spread across a 938m2 block and fea­tures a large boat port and an eightby-four me­tre con­crete ren­dered pool.

Ms McDon­ald said this stand­out home was all about out­door life­style and living in the Whit­sun­days, with in­side living ar­eas flow­ing out into a 60m2 out­door living area through a bi-fold win­dow.

She ex­plained the brief for the house was “to max­imise the views” and said the de­sign did just that.

From the front there are vis­tas to­ward Hay­man and Dou­ble Cone is­lands and from the rear you can see the Botan­ica and Wood­wark coast.

Ms McDon­ald said one of the film crew even com­mented on the ac­tual fin­ish of the home.

“He said ‘the qual­ity here is quite out­stand­ing’,” she said.

Film­ing took place on May 14 over about four-anda-half hours.

Ms McDon­ald said it was re­ally ex­cit­ing, es­pe­cially con­sid­er­ing the busi­ness had only been in the Whit­sun­days for about three years.

She said the fea­ture would be in­cluded in the luxury show seg­ment on 7mate.
