IT was the prom­ise of wide wa­ter frontage that lured Den­nis and Gail Gil­bert to their Sov­er­eign Is­lands house.

As a self-con­fessed ‘boatie’, Mr Gil­bert liked that the prop­erty had 24.5m of wa­ter frontage, of­fer­ing plenty of space for his boat. “Plus the pool is very pri­vate,” he said.

The cou­ple have spent a lot of time in the house’s out­door en­ter­tain­ment area in the four years they have lived there. Mr Gil­bert said it was one of their favourite parts of the home.

“It’s got a nice back ve­randa, we’ve had fam­ily bar­be­cues there and happy hour,” he said.

The two-storey house is on a 747sq m block and has four bed­rooms plus a study that could be con­verted into a fifth bed­room.

Its stand­out fea­tures in­clude a me­dia room with pro­jec­tor and screen, the water­front pool with dual zone spa and curved fea­ture stair­case.

Mr Gil­bert said the home had served them well over the years and they had barely changed any­thing about it.

“We just changed the colour, that’s all,” he said. “It was a ter­ri­ble pink.”
