Gold Coast real estate: Burleigh retro house snapped up

A ONE-OF-A-KIND retro house in Burleigh has sold for $3.1 million after just 10 days on the market.
The property at 19 Seriema St turned plenty of heads when it hit the market with its laid-back aesthetic and 1960s Florida vibe.

The modern take on a retro build paid off for the vendors with a Gold Coast family falling in love with the property and putting forward an offer that was too good to refuse.
“The local buyers wanted something a bit different,” said marketing agent Joel Madam, of Harcourts Coastal.
“They hadn’t seen anything of this quality and had builder friends come and check it out who were very complimentary of the finished product.”

Welcome home to 19 Seriema St, Burleigh Waters.
A showstopper right from the front door.
He said the buyers had planned to build but with construction costs so high, opted for a completed house.
“Build costs are just getting unattainable and a lot of builders have such a long lead time,” he said.
“And then if you are building you have to rent and it’s almost becoming unaffordable.”
“Buyers are seeing a finished product as having has more value.”

There is high attention to detail throughout the property.

Taking inspiration from 1960s and 1970s real estate trends, vendor and builder Taylor Davies said 19 Seriema gave you a “straight out of the old movies” feeling.
“We had a few mid-century houses in mind for inspiration, but the bold street frontage doesn’t really give away what’s inside,” he said.
“The facade in itself is striking but stepping inside gives you that instant wow factor.”

Wow factor at every turn.
Mr Davies said it was all about curating the curves in this five-bedroom, three-bathroom custom-designed home in one of the Gold Coast’s hottest postcodes.
“There are a lot of curves, both inside and out and they work to create a seamless flow throughout the whole house,” Mr Davies said.
“We wanted something different, and we achieved that by getting rid of all the square edges and piecing together a real Palm Springs-type feel to the place.
“We achieved the overall vibe that we set out to get and we’re really happy with how it turned out.”

The house stands out with its impressive craftmanship.
Location was also number one when Mr Davies was looking for the right location for the build.
“Everyone wants to be near Burleigh Beach,” he said.
“This area is a family area and this street, in particular, is a family street.
“Burleigh has that old-school suburban lifestyle where everything is close by and the beach is right there in reach, but it’s five minutes to the M1.”

Curved windows are a common theme.
The property is brimming with fine craftsmanship and luxurious extras everywhere you look.
Subtle nods to the mid-century era include custom cabinetry throughout – meticulously built to ceiling height with no bulkheads – recessed curtain runners with blackout and sheered curtains, colour-coded venetian render, and large skylights for an abundance of natural light.
