New Home Build – Custom Building Design & Build Project – Gracemere, Hope Island – Gold Coast QLD

This bespoke designed home is full of style, features and extras, situated on the prestigious Hope Island waterfront. Our clients came to us to build their holiday home here in Australia. They are professional people who live in New Zealand, visiting our sunshine state for their family vacations. Absolutely nothing has been left to chance in this build. Proudly overlooking the beautiful waters, this enviable home offers a lifestyle few are lucky enough to enjoy.

Modern contemporary Tuscany heavily influenced the design. From the impressive front entrance with its large porte-cochere boasting a beautiful raked timber-lined ceiling, to the ground entranceway featuring Nero Absoluto travertine inserts, nothing but grandeur awaits. The homeowners were looking for that feeling of grandeur from the entranceway to the five-car accommodation, bespoke designer kitchen and opulent master suites. This home welcomes the family with impressive well thought out living spaces making the most of the fantastic views with the open plan design. Equipped with a designer kitchen, the homeowners are inspired to create and serve friends and family in this beautiful home. The relaxing alfresco setting overlooks the glistening lap pool, ingeniously placed to the side of the residence to utilise every inch of the property.

Travertine marble imported from Spain was used throughout the home. A local sculpture hand-carved on-site the curved timber stair handrail, which is a beautiful feature of the home. We incorporated wall hung vanity basins and W.C. Suites for the bathrooms, which have been supported by mirrored walls behind; no small feat, and is unique to this property. The joinery was also bespoke for the home, setting the benchmark for the quality of the fixtures and making the home feel warm while experiencing the extremely high ceilings and open spaces.
