Renovation transforms tired Gold Coast home into modern haven

first_imgBefore the Southport property at 88 Musgrave Ave was flipped.FROM a dilapidated 60-year-old house to a mid-century modern marvel, this Southport home has had an incredible transformation. It’s hard to imagine the humble beginnings the property had but glimpses are still found inside, like the original timber floorboards and layout of the second level. A holistic design approach was taken in the five-bedrooms house’s makeover to limit the impact on the environment. It looks like a completely new house now. The owners undertook an extensive rebuild to get it up to scratch.Now standing is a contemporary and stylish abode with pared-back luxury. Owners Alison Wan and Nigel Evans recently completed the rebuild after purchasing the property at 88 Musgrave Ave in 2016. “We did quite an extensive rebuild as such but kept the existing footprint upstairs,” Ms Wan said. “We love mid-century design and architecture and wanted to create a beautiful house with a great entertaining area for family and friends. Something unique and not just a spec house, we wanted a home not a house.” MORE NEWS: House holds record despite selling at a loss More from news02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa10 hours ago02:37Gold Coast property: Sovereign Islands mega mansion hits market with $16m price tag1 day ago MORE NEWS: Looking for a spot to park your boat? Compared to its previous state, which was stuck in the past.Black and timber contrast throughout the home, while polished concrete floors on the ground level are a trendy design element. The backyard, with a pool and pool house with a bar, is another highlight. “Pretty much everything has changed apart from the upstairs footprint,” Ms Wan said. “We tried to use as many sustainable products as possible and tried to salvage what we could of the existing house, like the existing floorboards.“I like the upstairs day-bed area where you can oversee everything with the big beautiful windows that enjoy the outside world.” Every inch of it exudes contemporary design. Or lots of pink? …Ms Wan said the extensive renovation was a labour of love for the pair who are ready to tackle the tools again. “We will be moving on to another project, maybe not as big and grand, something a little easier,” she said. The property is set to head under the hammer on August 24 via Mark Saveall, of McGrath Surfers Paradise.
