Contemporary Gold Coast mansion stands out among the crowd

first_imgThe modern mansion at 2048 The Circle, Sanctuary Cove.JUST like a piece of contemporary art, this Sanctuary Cove mansion stands out among the others lining the water’s edge.Owners Del and Les Constable designed and built the abstract home at 2048 The Circle in 2008.Wanting “something different”, the couple let their imaginations run wild to come up with a design that would challenge existing ideas of modern living.“It was very modern in its time,” Mrs Constable said. The bathroom is massive! Water views can be seen from most of the home’s rooms. The home’s abstract style makes it stand out among others on the waterfront. The whole living area opens onto the outdoor area. It has an open living area that flows onto the outdoor area, perfect for entertaining.“It’s still modern 10 years later so it was very out there when we first built it.”The mansion is now on the market for $3.98 million.More from news02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa18 hours ago02:37Gold Coast property: Sovereign Islands mega mansion hits market with $16m price tag2 days agoStone, timber and neutral tones give it a sleek style while cutting-edge technology offers luxury appeal.The fireplace, bar, home theatre and master bedroom ensuite with spa are among its best features.Mrs Constable sketched the first floor plan then worked with an architect for months to turn it into their dream home.They made changes as they went along to improve the design, including a wood and glass staircase.“We had the staircase coming up the centre of the foyer but I sat down and designed (the existing) staircase myself,” Mrs Constable said.center_img Care for a drink? There’s plenty of space to lounge outside. The bar is tucked under the feature staircase.“We like it much, much better – it’s got more character to it.”Every detail of the home has been well thought out.For example, they have concealed all the home’s downpipes and added fibre optic lights in the theatre’s ceiling to look like the Southern Cross – a hit feature with the Constables’ grandchildren.“It was a real thing for them to lie on the floor and look up to see if they could see the Southern Cross in the lights,” Mr Constable said.But it’s the outdoor entertainment area with pool and barbecue overlooking the water that they love most.“At Christmas time, we have had up to 24 people here,” Mr Constable said.This is the fifth house they have built over the years, each getting slightly bigger.“It is very, very different to what we’ve built before but we’ve always liked contemporary homes,” Mrs Constable said.They have decided it is much too big for them now, so want to sell and travel.
