Gold Coast house with showstopping design hits the market
IT’S a contemporary entertainer that exudes sleek style and luxury fixtures.
From its impressive kerbside appeal through to the waterfront deck and every nook and cranny in-between, the Isle of Capri house is stunning and stylish.
Created by Jared Poole, of self-titled design company, the modern abode at 104 Gibraltar Drive is characterised by high ceilings, chic fittings and an effortless flow between the indoor living zones and outdoor areas.
It was also designed to be the ultimate family haven, where kids can feel right at home and parents can enjoy some privacy.

Owner Donna Poole, who has lived at the property with her family for a decade, said it was completely rebuilt in 2013.
“The reason we bought the house was we wanted to be in a quiet cul-de-sac position on the Isle of Capri,” she said.
“It has been a great family home with great entertaining and great indoor outdoor living.
“The indoors spill seamlessly to the outdoor area with big stack-back doors.
“We have got a separate wing for the children and a separate wing for the adults, which is always nice.”
When crafting the house, light was carefully considered.
The living areas are light filled from sunrise to sunset, the pool enjoys the rays all day long and the outdoor entertainment zones are protected from the weather for year-round use.
It’s the natural light that makes the living area Ms Poole’s favourite spot.
“What I really love about it is that from every angle in the living area, the sun can penetrate through all the windows,” she said,
“The way it has been designed, it opens up to the north and we enjoy light throughout the day. Plus, the pool area enjoys the sun all day but the house is also protected from the weather.”
The kitchen, where top-of-the-range appliances are all integrated and a luxurious island doubles as a breakfast bar, was another standout feature for the family, as well as the “sunset deck” that takes in views of the Surfers Paradise skyline.
Ms Poole said the waterfront lifestyle could be thoroughly enjoyed thanks to the property’s boat ramp, shed and winch.
“Not all houses on the water have a boatshed and they are hard to get approval for now so we retained it and refurbished it,” she said. The family are selling to move locally.
The four-bedroom house is set to head under the hammer on August 24 through Ray White Broadbeach duo Sam Guo and Julia Kuo.
