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.
