Curved Gold Coast beach house with copper facade sells in multimillion-dollar deal
Posted: 3rd October 2019
An award-winning curved beach house, perched on a hillside with views of the ocean and national park, scored a sweet seven-figure deal.
The impressive Currumbin beach house sold last week for $4.45 million.
The three-storey property was designed by Paul Uhlmann Architects and featured a copper clad facade shaped like a wave.
Natural materials including timber, stone, iron and stainless steel were used throughout the contemporary residence which was created to blend into its surrounding environment of Currumbin Creek, the ocean and rainforest.
Kollosche director Michael Kollosche sold the seven-bedroom trophy home alongside Eoghan Murphy.
Mr Kollosche said a local buyer secured the keys and loved the home’s unique architecture, private location and views.
The owners, Krystle and Mark Holmes, were calling for expressions of interest when they first listed the property before attaching a $4.975 million price tag.
They decided to sell to move closer to their children’s school.
Mr Holmes is the founder and managing director of Nu-Pure, a bottled water manufacturing business which produces about 120 million bottles of spring water each year.
“My husband and I, we wanted to build something for our children,” Mrs Holmes told the Bulletin when the property hit the market in August.
“I’m very hands-on, so is my husband, so everything in our home is how we wanted it. Every detail my husband and I chose.
“The property is built on a hill and the hill is quite steep.
“We thought if we keep it simple, it won’t look over the top.”
