Architect-designed Masterpiece Built to Last
September 12 2022
A magnificent, architect-designed home has opened the door for buyers wanting to gain a foothold in the coveted Surfers Paradise precinct of the Isle of Capri.
Marketed by Kollosche’s Sam Guo and Julia Kuo, the majestic double-storey mansion has been designed by the respected Gold Coast-based architect Bayden Goddard, whose portfolio boasts show-stopping homes across South East Queensland and abroad.
Built in 2009 utilising only the highest-quality construction materials, an expertly configured floor plan and solid build have kept the property contemporary with features that are every bit on par with modern new-builds popping up within the enclave.
Open and spacious, covering a generous 498m2 under roof across two levels, there is a real sense of permanency to this home.
Heavy walnut pivot doors, thick walls, laser-cut English Oak polished timber floors, alpaca carpets, as well as limestone and Tundra marble tiles provide solidity and give the home a timeless appeal.
It was these characteristics that attracted the current owner Lei Zhang to the property.
“I loved how solid and sound the home was and the finish was very upmarket, modern and classy,” says Lei.
“The kitchen is so practical and I also love the master bedroom. I like to sit there drinking tea or coffee and reading a magazine. The whole design and floor plan is practical and useful.”
Those who are also striving for a coastal lifestyle can achieve it with this waterfront home, which has 15.47m of canal frontage, a sandy beach and pontoon with moorings only moments from Main River.
The architect has made full use of the 556m2 block, with the property nudging the boundaries, keeping maintenance to a minimum and allowing owners to take full advantage of the amenities the location has to offer.
Being one of the more established precincts of the Gold Coast, the Isle of Capri has benefitted from a recent rejuvenation with the establishment of Capri on Via Roma, which features modern restaurants, Harris Farm Market, delicatessens and specialty retailers.
Lei says: “The location is so central and so connected. Lots of people know each other, it has a real village feel. It’s also convenient to walk to everything: shops, the supermarket, restaurants, the gym, post office and the beach.”
The property is unlikely to stay on the market long, according to Sam, given the high level of demand from buyers seeking turn-key homes and the strong interest already shown by existing Kollosche clients.
“In the current market, well-designed homes, with stunning finishes are hitting the right note with buyers, the majority of whom don’t want to renovate or build,” Sam says.
