Combined talents create masterpiece
An energetic couple have renovated their eighth home and their experience, taste and expertise is on display with this beautiful five-bedroom waterside mansion
WHEN a stylist and builder combine their talents, this is the result.
The stunning five-bedroom Sovereign Islands residence is Hayley and Terry Little’s eighth home renovation.
“As soon as we walked in we knew we could work with it,” says Ms Little, who runs online blog Mum Little Loves.
“The view is amazing being on the Broadwater and we basically have a 180degree view of open water.”
The pair, who have three children aged six to 16, bought the property in 2015 and went about renovating the waterfront abode soon after. The end result is a stylish masterpiece packed with high-end finishes and coastal influences.
One of the major changes included sealing off the existing alfresco area so it was part of the indoor living area.
“We put in french doors and knocked out the glass doors so it just flows through to the rest of the house,” she said. “We also brought all the floors to the same height.”
Other renovations included closing off part of the living area to create a media room and a new kitchen complete with honed Carrara marble.
The couple are selling to concentrate on their next renovation project.
