Stunning transformation of beach shack into two new homes

first_imgThe ground floor of Lot 2 features urban polished concrete floors.More from news02:37Purchasers snap up every residence in the $40 million Siarn Palm Beach Northless than 1 hour ago02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa20 hours ago It’s built over three levels.The ground floor has maintained its beach-home heritage with modern flourishes such as streamline stone and timber benchtops. “It’s come up a treat while still maintaining its character,” Mr Glennon said.“For example, the original entry was on the side and there were a heap of breezeway blocks. We knocked it down and kept the breezeway blocks and now they form part of the front fence.” Bricks in other parts of the home were recycled during the redesign and the old laundry window is now the bedroom window. Lots 1 and 2/34 Leyte Ave, Palm Beach are on the market for offers over $999,00 and $1.15 million.TO a passer-by, it was an old brick home surrounded by empty space.To local residential developer Danny Glennon, it was an opportunity.“The original beach home that was on there was the typical yellow brick house that was standard throughout Palm Beach, but we didn’t want to lose the character of that,” said vendor Mr Glennon who bought the property in late 2016 and began work six months later. Lot 1 features a new extension added on to the existing classic house.Instead, Mr Glennon renovated and crafted the old house into the modern day and built a brand new house in the backyard.“We built residential along with a complete renovation, it was a combination of both,” he said.“You see duplexes around but we wanted to create homes rather than units.”Lot 1, which is on the market for offers over $999,000 is the renovated home — a master bedroom and parents’ retreat were added and the interior underwent a complete overhaul. The property features four bedrooms, two bathrooms and two living areas. Lot 2 is a brand new build. Both lots are central.“It was designed for multi-generational living. I think children are staying at home more and more these days, so it was the most important design aspect,” he said. “We were passionate about creating something special in and around Palm Beach and Currumbin.”The properties can be purchased and accessed separately and there are two car spaces available for each home. The home is designed for multi-generational living.“Both have high-end finishing and European appliances,” Mr Glennon said.“I’m very proud of how they turned out. One is retro and one has an urban feel.”Mr Glennon and his wife lived in Lot 2 (pictured) for four months while their own home was being renovated.That property, which is listed for $1.15 million, features four bedrooms and three bathrooms over three levels. last_img read more
