From drab to fab: Epic Hamptons renovation is Qld’s most viewed property

A MAMMOTH Hamptons-inspired renovation took this Gold Coast home from drab to fab over the pandemic.

The picture-perfect house at 2 Christa Way, Benowa Waters is now attracting plenty of interest — it was the most viewed house in Queensland on this week.

Passionate about the suburb, Bianca and Jay Burnz hand-picked the family-centric neighbourhood as the ideal setting for their multi-family home.

Property records reveal the couple paid $1.1 million for the property in November, 2020.

“We love this neighbourhood and we think it is perfect for families of all shapes and sizes, with the botanical gardens, hospital, shops and schools nearby,” Mr Burnz said.

“We bought the property with the thought of catering to an extended family in mind and we have done it up to ensure the layout is really flexible, with the granny flat entirely separate to the house.”

Fashioned in classic Hamptons greys and whites, the main home has six bedrooms, two with private balconies and all are “super-sized”.

“The bedrooms are huge, there is just so much space in this home and everything is roomy and comfortable,” Mr Burnz said.

“We actually modified the house to make it a bit smaller when we were renovating – it is just such a big house.”

There is a media room with fireplace, a large covered alfresco area and large swimming pool.

Features include a chef’s style kitchen with integrated Blanco appliances, Franke sink, 3.2m island and separate scullery with dishwasher, sink and storage.

The main home also features a separate guest suite on the lower level, perfect for overnight guests or teenagers.

The self-contained guesthouse has two bedrooms of its own, with an open-plan kitchen and dining, bathroom, and laundry.

The house has been completely transformed.

Mr Burnz said extended family could be accommodated for long- or short-term stays.

“You have the option to invite friends and family to stay comfortably and have their own space,” he said.

“If you wanted to set it up as a rental that is also an opportunity.”

The property goes under the hammer through Sam Guo and Julia Kuo of Kollosche — Broadbeach on June 24.
