Gold Coast’s ‘pink bungalow’ hits the market

This post was originally published on this site

The Main Beach Bungalow at 46-48 Peak Ave has hit the market.

ITS pink facade and quirky name have become renowned in Main Beach but its impressive interior has remained relatively secret – until now.

An eclectic style with bold wallpaper and luxury features characterise The Main Beach Bungalow on Peak Ave, which has hit the market.

Inspired by the famous Beverly Hills Hotel, it is unlike any other property on the Gold Coast.

Owner Micheal Willems, a real estate agent with Ray White Surfers Paradise Group, bought the house with his wife, Dayna, in October 2017 and revamped it.

The couple added some extra rooms and overhauled the colour scheme but Mr Willems said all the hard work had already been done before they moved in.

It has been designed to look like the Beverly Hills Hotel.

The property has become well-known in the area because of its pink and green colour scheme.

“We’ve made quite a few changes to it to personalise it but it was a great home to start with,” he said.

“(It) was a good quality constructed home when we bought it.”

Part of personalising the home was giving it a name.

“My wife decided on the name,” Mr Willems said.

“There are more and more properties on the Gold Coast that have a name attached to them.

“It’s kind of quirky and kind of cool.”

With its pink palette and green and white accents inspired by The Beverly Hills Hotel, Mr Willems said they tried to keep its interior on trend.

“We thought, ‘well, why not try to make it look a bit like that’,” he said.

The sprawling residence spans three levels with a tropical lagoon-style pool taking centre stage outside.

The owners gave it a fresh look after they bought it in 2017.

They added some extra rooms and overhauled the colour scheme.

A bridge connects the house with a poolside cabana, which is ideal for entertaining guests.

The house’s ground floor is open plan with a seamless flow between the living room, dining area and kitchen.

There is also a separate family room with kitchenette and sunroom.

The top two levels are dedicated to five bedrooms, including the main.

Referred to as the ‘master wing’, it includes a living area, ensuite with a second separate toilet as well as a dressing hall with multiple wardrobes.

While the Willems family loved the house, it was mostly the location that attracted them to it two years ago.

Loud wallpaper is featured throughout the house.

Even in the bathroom.

“The location, Main Beach, is a triple A-grade suburb,” he said.

“Having double allotments at Main Beach is also so hard to find – we’ve got the best part of 1100sq m of land.”

It is for this reason they won’t be leaving the suburb when they sell the property.

“We’ve got something right on the sand,” Mr Willems said.

The Main Beach Bungalow is due to go under the hammer on March 14.

“Whoever buys it, I don’t think they’ll ever regret it,” Mr Willems said.

The property will go under the hammer on March 14 onsite at 11am.

It stands out from its neighbours.
