Fresh style breathes new life into home
Transforming this waterfront home into the luxuriously modern property it is today was no easy feat but the owners are confident it was worth it
WHEN Scott and Bridget Aggett bought this Broadbeach Waters property, they knew the house was going to need more than a fresh lick of paint and some tender love and care.
They spared no expense in their attempt to breath new life into it, stripping it back to the bare bones.
“That was the sole reason I bought it,” Mr Aggett said. “We basically rebuilt the whole thing.”
The two-storey home that now stands on the property at 12 Beverley Cres showcases modern luxury at its very best.
Mr Aggett said it was much bigger and luxurious than anything they could afford while living in Sydney. “The space, the light, the luxury – it’s a whole new world for us,” Mr Aggett said. “This is our dream home.”
Its minimalist style with a white palette and splashes of wood and grey give it a fresh feel. It has five bedrooms, three of which are downstairs while two are upstairs.
The open kitchen, living and dining area flows onto an alfresco deck, which overlooks a pool and the canal.
“The beauty of this house, and why I bought it, is you look across the water and into a bush reserve,” Mr Aggett said. “There’s no house looking back at us.” While reluctant to sell, they have decided to take on another renovation project.
“We’re very proud of what’ve done but hopefully it will be a beautiful home for another family to enjoy.
