Renovation stars work their magic
It took Daniella and Aaron Winter, the winners of a hit reality show, just three months to stylishly transform this Broadbeach Waters property
IT’S a renovator’s delight turned Gold Coast dream home.
The now rendered residence is resplendent in timeless grey and white, with matching muted tones inside, accentuated by timber floorboards and Caesarstone throughout.
“It’s a two-storey modern coastal home, we raised the ceilings up to three metres high, and put a rake on them as well as a feature panel,” said vendor Daniella Winter, who bought the property along with husband Aaron after they won the hit renovation show House Rules.
It took the couple just three months to complete their project, while juggling family life with their two young sons at their nearby Broadbeach Waters home.
They bought the renovator for $1.015 million in September, 2017, just a few months after collecting $200,000 prize money on House Rules, with the intention to “flip and sell”.
“Some of the work had already been predone and had council approval, which is what we wanted, but we discovered the whole house was pretty much riddled with termites,” Mrs Winter said.
“It took three days to demolish the house and another eight days to rebuild it again. We pretty much rebuilt a house in three months.”
Now complete, the appealing residence features a “huge” master suite with a double shower, gorgeous stone bathrooms and black fixtures including the window frames, to add a contemporary edge.
“We have floating stairs and Aaron built a feature wall to hold the stairs up, and there’s also a big bay window seat in the master bedroom,” Mrs Winter said of her favourite features.
“I think we’ve got one of the biggest pools on the Gold Coast, it’s really deep with blue mosaic tiles and a retro feel, plus a big entertainment area.”
The finishing touches were recently completed and the couple say were happy with the end result. “A build never runs smoothly, even if you’re working in a kitchen space you are dealing with the stone supplier, stone masonry, the cabinet-maker and then installing mirror splashbacks, so it’s a lot of people,” Mrs Winter said.
The couple have now set their sights on another project. “We are getting approval to put an extra two storeys on our house,” Mrs Winter said of their home which was renovated as part of the hit show.
“I really want to do a Palm Springs-style home, and just play with open-plan living.”
Mitch Palmer of Ray White Mermaid Waters is marketing the property.
“Luxurious designer finishes and blissful entertainment spaces propel this home from the ordinary to extraordinary category,” Mr Palmer said.
“No detail was too small in creating a home that represents the highest standards in luxury.”
