Lowe living’s Tim and Emma Lowe, pictured inset with Bec Judd, have sold their Burleigh sub-penthouse.
THE developer couple behind footy super WAG Bec Judd’s foray into interior design has collected $1 million in capital gains from the sale of a luxury Gold Coast holiday apartment at popular Burleigh Heads.
Emma and Tim Lowe, managing directors of Lowe Living, sold the beachfront unit for $2.8m in an off-market deal, two years after purchasing their Queensland pandemic bolthole with stunning 270-degree ocean and city skyline views.
The sale, described as the most “significant” within the building, comes just weeks after the Lowes officially launched their second collaboration with Judd, who is styling interiors for the company’s Oceano project in Melbourne’s upmarket Hampton.

TV presenter Judd, who is married to former West Coast and Carlton Football Club great Chris Judd, partnered with Lowe Living to bring her own celebrated sense of style to the three-storey apartment complex, as well as another of the high-end developer’s projects at Brighton, named Sera.
But while Judd chose a soft palette and natural tones for the Hampton project, with dark brushed metal elements to create a modern edge, the style showcased in the Lowe family’s Queensland sub-penthouse holiday home was decidedly eclectic.

The three-bedroom, two-bathroom unit on the 19th floor of the Burleigh Boardwalk tower was designed by prominent interior decorator Anna Spiro, who is known for her bold use of colour, patterns and textures.
Ms Spiro’s signature style shone through woven jute flooring, linen cushions and bespoke wallpaper, stamping a unique spin on the coastal theme.
Her past projects include Halcyon House, Cabarita and Mr Percival’s restaurant in Brisbane’s Howard Smith Wharves.
The Lowes snapped up the skyhome under the hammer for $1.85m in February 2021, as interstate buyers rushed to claim a place by the sand, driving Gold Coast home values skyward through the boom.

The latest deal was negotiated by the Boardwalk’s onsite manager, Syd Douglas.
“We’ve had several off-market sales over the last few months. This was the most significant, so we were thrilled to see it come through,” Mr Douglas said.
“Interest is still going through the roof and it doesn’t look to be slowing down any time soon.
“As soon as someone comes to stay at Boardwalk, if they like the place they will make it known they’d like to purchase, and that was the case with this sale.”

Mr Douglas said the buyer was a North Queensland resident who had rented one of the building’s short stay apartments while on holiday.
Back in Melbourne’s Bayside area, four of Oceano’s nine apartments sold before plans for the boutique build were finalised, with a buy-in of between $1.29m to $3.45m for the remaining units.
Though residents won’t move in until mid-2024, they can expect to find style hints of the Judd family’s Brighton mansion as well as their Mt Buller ski chalet apartment.
