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.
