Gold Coast home charms house hunters with its character
LOOKING for a home with character?
This Cape Cod-style house at Carrara’s Emerald Lakes won’t disappoint.
From its curved staircase and arched windows to the Mickey Mouse-shaped cutout in the media room ceiling and detailed wallpaper, there are plenty of features that differentiate the property from others on the Coast.
Owners Sarah and Ashley Gale built the five-bedroom residence, where they lived for four-and-a-half years.
Ms Gale said after travelling to the US many times, they fell in love with the country’s home designs.
“We like that American style,” she said.
“The house has a really nice feel to it, it’s a warm house.
“It makes us sad to leave because it’s got so many memories.”

Ms Gale’s favourite feature of the house is the Mickey Mouse face on the media room ceiling, which was inspired by a trip to Disneyland.
“It’s one of the coolest features in the house, the kids love it,” she said.
A study with built-in shelving, waterfront pool, children’s playground and patio with a barbecue and pizza oven are among its standout features.
The property will go to auction on April 27 at 1pm.
