Hamptons meets the Gold Coast
No expense has been spared in this modern mansion which has been built on one of the best blocks on the Sovereign Islands
THIS breathtaking new Hamptons-inspired mansion on the Sovereign Islands has to be seen to be believed.
No expense was spared in the residence which was designed to take advantage of the stunning Broadwater, Hinterland and park views.
Vendors Gary and Tina Brewster bought the 742sq m block of land in 2011 before building their dream home in 2017 — it was completed in early 2018.
Mr Brewster, a builder, designed and built the home while his wife was responsible for the interior.
“We’ve got four children so we wanted space for them,” Mr Brewster said.
“We had the block for a few years and had always planned to build on it — we were thrilled with how it turned out.”
Towering over four levels, the property stands out on the street with laser cut aluminium screens paired with a gatehouse.
A 13m entry foyer with a dazzling display of custom-built lights sets the scene as soon as you step inside.
“One of the main features is the light feature in the entry,” Mr Brewster said.
“We’ve pushed the boundaries on a few houses before — I’ve done a big water feature with massive sheets of glasses in other entries but I wanted to do something different and I didn’t just want a chandelier.
“The house is basically based around that light feature which is made up of 18 lights.
“It lights up the entire house. I haven’t seen anything like it before.”
A white colour palette paired with modern finishes and an array of entertaining areas provides a warm and inviting space.
The ground level includes the lounge, living and dining areas as well a media room and office. The kitchen comes with a raft of features including an integrated fridge/ freezer, Miele appliances including coffee machine, two ovens, conventional oven, gas cooktop and butler’s pantry.
The living and dining areas open up to the pool and gazebo via bi-fold doors.
The second level features five ensuited bedrooms while the top level is dedicated to a master bedroom, gym and steam room, separate kitchen, bar and lounge area overlooking the rooftop heated pool/ spa.
“The middle level is designed for the children and the top level is for entertaining and the master bedroom,” Mr Brewster said.
“The rooftop area is our favourite — you can hang out up there and it’s very private.”
Other features include a 10-car basement garage, lift, pontoon and the latest Cbus home automation system.
The family are selling to embark on a tree change to an acreage property.
Sovereign Islands is a gated community connected to the mainland by a single bridge and guarded by 24-hour security.
