Twin Gold Coast homes the epitome of modern living
Waterfront homes are always in high demand but house hunters will be left coveting two in particular from they moment they step inside.
Contemporary design paired with cutting-edge finishes characterise two houses in Broadbeach Waters.
Built on two blocks that were once one, the houses at 97 & 97A T E Peters Drive are the first of their kind in the suburb.
Owner and developer Tim Stylianou bought the 830sq m block and its 1980s-built house in 2016 with the intention of demolishing it and building a much more modern home.
But new rules have allowed Mr Stylianou to subdivide the block rather than the usual strata titling, which means the houses that tower above the block today are not villas or duplexes with a body corporate like all the others in the area built to date.

He spent about a year getting the design right and obtaining approval to build the five-bedroom houses.
“The actual build was about 11 months,” he said.
With 25 years experience in the construction industry, Mr Stylianou had a very clear idea of what he wanted the finished product to look like.
“They’re quite close to identical,” he said.
“Everything (inside) is unique and one-of-a-kind where you can’t just go and buy it off the shelf.
“Everything is pretty well top of the line.”
Each of the three-storey houses has five bedrooms, four bathrooms, theatre rooms and pools.
Stone, glass and European Oak floors are featured throughout while a black and white palette gives the properties a classy edge.
Mr Stylianou said they had many standout features but there was one he liked most.
“The favourite part for me is the stairs with lights in them,” he said.
Before questioning their practicality, Mr Stylianou assures each step can be easily removed to clean or change the light globes.
Past the ground floor staircase is an open kitchen, dining and living area with sliding glass doors opening out onto an alfresco deck that overlooks the pool and waterfall spa, canal and Gold Coast skyline.
A theatre room and guest bedroom with ensuite is also on the ground floor.
Upstairs, there are three additional bedrooms, two of which have balcony access, as well as a rumpus room that opens onto a balcony.
The top floor is dedicated to the main bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe, ensuite and wraparound balcony with views stretching as far as the Gold Coast skyline.
Other standout features include sensor and dual activated lighting throughout, a laundry shoot on each level and intercom security.
