Avant-garde Eagle House has landed in Burleigh

22 Eagle Avenue, Burleigh Heads, is turning heads.

There’s a new-build in Burleigh that is turning heads and has the potential to break a suburb record when it goes to auction this month.
Set on a 774sq m corner block at 22 Eagle Avenue, the house is instantly recognisable.

The Eagle House was designed by architect Justin Humphrey, inspired by his award-winning Cove House.

Spread over two storeys, it rises well above its single-storey, brick and tile neighbours, making

The pathways add a touch of the Flinstones.

The Eagle House, as it has been dubbed, a true show-stopper.
Built by its owner David Brazenall, who owns Burleigh Constructions, and designed by renowned local architect Justin Humphrey, the home was always intended to be a signature piece for the budding builder, who bought the original property for the location in 2005.

“The house wasn’t much to look at but I saw the position of the block, it was amazing, and that was enough,” Mr Brazenall said.
While upgrading and renovating the original home made it a great place for the Brazenalls to live and rear their three boys in, the couple always new they wanted to create something worthy of the block’s size and prime location.

Curved walls bring softness to the home.

Taking inspiration from the award-winning Cove House in Sanctuary Cove designed by Mr Humphrey, The Eagle House was born.
Featuring five bedrooms, the house is unlike anything seen in the suburb, with its dark, broody interiors, styled by Burleigh’s Kirra and Kirra, giving it a sense of sophistication and luxury.

The kitchen and dining areas are open plan, with glass doors leading to an alfresco timber deck where you will find an inbuilt barbecue and bar fridge and which overlooks manicured lawns and gardens.
Mr Brazenall said a lot of attention was given to the garden, bringing in mature trees and retaining a now mature frangipani tree that the family had planted from a cutting.

The design is a move away from the traditional Hamptons coastal home.

Mr Brazenall said an immense level of engineering has gone in to the home, along with materials and man hours, to make it appear seamless and design features such as the floating stairs appear effortless.
“At times I thought, ‘This can’t work’ but that’s where Justin’s experience came into play, and it all just fell into place,” Mr Brazenall said.

The house is on the market and will go under the hammer through Eoghan Murphy and Michael Kollosche of Kollosche, on September 26 at 10am.
While the home straddles the border of Burleigh Heads, its official address rests in Burleigh Waters, where the highest sale recorded is $2.95m set by 23 Kingfisher Crescent in August.
In Burleigh Heads the house price record sits with a beach shack at 10 Goodwin Terrace which was bought by a developer for $7 million in 2020.

No expense was spared in the build.
