Palm Beach new build Nirvana going under the hammer

FROM a leaky roof and rat infestation to showstopper home – welcome to one of the Gold Coast’s most jaw-dropping new builds to hit the market.
Nirvana as its name suggests is described by vendors Josh and Courtney Coghlan as “heaven on earth”.
The house, which replaced a rundown 1950s cottage at 1464 Gold Coast Highway, Palm Beach, combines high-end luxury with European and Coastal vibes.

“When we were buying the block I just wanted proximity to the beach,” said Mr Coghlan, the managing director of construction company Rome Design and Construct.
“We moved in and had planned to knock it (the cottage) down straight away but life got in the way.
“Eventually the (cottage’s) leaky roof and rat infestation got the better of us and we knocked it down.”

Nirvana has attracted plenty of interest from onlookers in the street and online with its archways, curves, and creamy facade.
Just this week it was the most viewed Gold Coast home online and the second most viewed in Queensland.
The house is a dream come true for Mr and Mrs Coghlan who bought the block in 2016.
Two sons later – Hendrix, 6, Cassius, 5 – and the pair put the finishing touches on their house earlier this year before moving into the property in March.
Looking out the Gold Coast Highway.
There are several different bespoke areas to relax or entertain.
Mr Coghlan’s company Rome Design and Construct built the house during the height of the Covid pandemic.
“My wife Courtney has always loved Mediterranean and Mexican style and we saw a really simple two-storey Mediterranean home where she got her inspiration.
“We went though a list of wants and needs for the house and we started talking about five bedrooms plus a separate entertaining area, in-house bar and rooftop terrace so there was no scope to just have it on a small scale.”

He said one of their biggest features they wanted to incorporate was curves and archways.
“The last thing we wanted to do was build a Mediterranean home that looked like it was 100 years old so we put a contemporary touch on it.
“We wanted it to feel luxurious as well.
“We wanted to have the earthiness as the main undercurrent but contrast that with luxury items – brass tapware, furniture, pendants and benchtops.”

The end result is something special.
The five-bedroom, three-bathroom residence rises four levels with no expense spared in the design and build.
“Nothing we have done is as out there as Nirvana,” Mr Coghlan said.
“We were given an opportunity and a great piece of land in Palm Beach and we really wanted to capitalise on that and showcase what we could do and express ourselves freely with no constraints.”

Curved balcony archways and circular windows set the scene while elevated garden greenery, brass accents and stone walls give the residence its modern-day luxury.
Among the standout features is a large alfresco entertainment area, magnesium pool and cabana, stone walls, in-house bar, rooftop terrace, 10-person sauna, curved staircase, four integrated fridges and facial recognition gate entry.
There are also ocean and Hinterland views.
Brass finishes are a common feature.
Looking into the kitchen.
Mr Coghlan said it was his wife who was behind the name Nirvana.
“My wife and I love 90s music and when we were thinking of the name for our piece of paradise she called me one day and said ‘I’ve got it- it’s heaven on earth’ and I said ‘what do you mean’ and she said ‘Nirvana’.
“It translates to heaven on earth and is also one of our favourite bands of all time.”
The property is going under the hammer on July 16 at 10.30am through Ed Cherry of Harcourts Coastal.
There are plenty of curves.
That bath!
