‘Ultimate renovator’ with eye-popping interiors sold under the hammer

A waterfront mansion combining on-trend Mediterranean-style architecture with eye-popping interiors straight out of the 1970s has sold under the hammer for $2.505 million.
The original Spanish-inspired house on a 756sq m parcel at 16 Alaska Ave, Broadbeach Waters was snapped up by a local family, with nine registered bidders among 80 people present at the auction.
The striking property went to market for the first time since it was built in 1974. It was marketed by Corey Bedford and Jamie Harrison, of Kollosche, and auctioned by Justin Nickerson, of Apollo Auctions.

Mr Bedford said the house had been “treasured” by generations of the same family.
While recent market trends show buyers favouring newly built or renovated properties over fixer-uppers, this character-filled abode in a sought-after location was “brimming with potential”.
The four-bedroom, four-bathroom home’s white rendered exterior features archways and curved balconies overlooking a lagoon-style swimming pool and the canals.
There’s 20m of water frontage, with a boat ramp offering an access point to cruising Main River.
“Character infused every inch of a solid three-storey concrete structure where patterned wallpaper and tiles combine with on-trend archways to create a foundation that’s packed with potential for renovation,” the listing said.

Stepping inside is like entering a psychedelic timewarp.
Mission brown and lime green collide in smashing style in the kitchen, while bold red doors open onto carpet of the same shade in the entry foyer, which also features mirrored wallpaper.
The lounge is positioned for maximum views through wide glass doors opening onto outdoors. It’s also carpeted in red, paired with brown patterned walls, and there’s a statement built-in bar.
Three bedrooms are upstairs, each with private balconies, and there’s a ground-floor one-bedroom granny flat with kitchen, ensuite and private external access.
