Hamptons style with a modern twist
The owners of this waterfront Broadbeach Waters home were influenced by the Hamptons style but decided to do it with a more modern twist
WHEN Niki and Luis Aguado bought their property at Broadbeach Waters in January 2016, it was either to knock it down or put it through a massive renovation.
They decided on the knock down with the only part of the original property they retained the swimming pool - which also got a renovation.
The couple then set about creating a fivebedroom home with Hamptons’ influences.
“It is a bit of a modern Hamptons, it is not a real traditional Hamptons, we took a lot of aspects from Hamptons and just modernised it a bit,’’ Mrs Aguado said.
Mrs Aguado said the block was so good they weren’t constrained in what they wanted to build on the site.
Her favourite part of the home is the main living area which leads out to a large alfresco area.
“(This) goes down to a grassed area as well, so it is just good for hanging out during the day and also a good entertaining area,’’ she said.
Mrs Aguado said the home also had three lounge areas.
“The main lounge and living room, media or formal lounge and then upstairs parents’ or children’s retreat lounge.
“I think it is a perfect family home, we have built it so that you can have the family upstairs and guest rooms downstairs.’’
In the main bedroom is a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite with a dual shower, rain shower and freestanding bathtub.
The house sits on a 719sq m block and has Gold Coast skyline views.
Inside the main foyer of the five-bedroom, 4.5 bathroom home are 5.5 metre high ceilings.
There are multiple living areas throughout the home while the spacious kitchen has waterfall edge stone benches, dual ovens, integrated appliances and a large butler’s pantry.
There is also a window splashback in the kitchen.
This area flows through to an open plan living and dining room, which then leads through to an outdoor dining area.
This covered space has a fully-equipped outdoor kitchen, which overlooks the renovated 8m by 3.5m infinity pool and sunken spa.
Beyond that is a pontoon and a boat ramp, and a 17m sandy beach-frontage, flanked by tropical palms.
Back inside the house, the other upstairs bedrooms have ensuites while downstairs, the fourth and fifth bedrooms share a bathroom.
There is keyless entry to the home, ducted airconditioning and security cameras as well as remote security gates.
