HOUSEHUNTERS are eyeing of this Cape Cod abode which has a perfect blend of coastal chic and contemporary comfort.
The Brighton Pde house was also the fourth most popular property on the market in Queensland, raking in a high number of clicks from buyers and those trawling the internet looking at dream homes.
Designed by renowned Gold Coast architect Bayden Goddard, the three-level, Hamptons-style house is within The Southport School precinct, has a six-car garage, wine cellar, pool and seamless indoor and outdoor living and entertaining.
Owners Kate and Price Gallie, who built the property to raise their four sons, are used to their luxury house being in the spotlight.
“It’s always been very much loved on Pinterest, it won Australia’s best room many years ago in Home Beautiful magazine … it has always been out there and people seem to love it, Ms Gallie said.
“They love the high ceilings and the light, the architect has done a great job.
“And I had a great time styling and decorating it as well.”
The house that stands on the Southport block today is a far cry from the two old houses they bought a decade ago.
They demolished the properties and then built their “Cape Cod meets Noosa” dream home.
The Gallie family have plans to build another luxury house locally and hope it will be just as spectacular.
“My husband compares it to a rock group who put out their first album — will it be a one-hit wonder? Was it a fluke?,” Ms Gallie said.
“I hope I don’t regret leaving, it’s going to be hard one to leave.”
Ray White Prestige Surfers Paradise agent Jackson Paradise, who is marketing the property, said its popularity was thanks to the style and architecture.
“When you get in the house it’s even better than the photos,” Mr Paradise said.
“It is one of the best designed family homes we have ever seen on the Gold Coast — it’s iconic.
“It is one of the area’s most recognised homes and stands in a league of its own.”
Mr Paradise said the size of the property was also a big plus.
“The kids can be playing down one end of the house and adults can have their side of the house so you’re not on top of each other all the time,” he said.
“It’s very rare you can get a backyard as big as this in a house so close to the CBD.”
Locals, Brisbane buyers and even someone from Sydney have shown interest ahead of its auction, scheduled for April 7.
