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.
