A LUXURY Gold Coast house that set a suburb record when it changed hands last year is back on the market.
The Lakehouse’s $6.335 million mega deal was the highest price paid for a property in Benowa when it sold in April, 2022.
It settled in June, 2022.
Twelve months later and the house, inspired by the glamorous grandeur of Los Angeles mega-mansions, is back on the market via expressions of interest through Robbie Graham of Ray White Prestige Gold Coast.
“The seller walked in last year and fell in love with it,” he said.
“The family has lived on the main river and said they had enough of the noise and activity and lack of privacy on the river.
“Walking into The Lakehouse and they felt at peace and at ease.
“There’s no boats, no jetskis, no pontoons — it’s just peaceful tranquil waterfront living.”
He said the vendor would not sell the property for less than $6.335 million.
“The sellers’s expectations are in excess of what the property was purchased for last year,” Mr Graham said.
Mr Graham said the house was less than two years old and in impeccable condition.
“It’s a rock star house,” he said.
“It’s one of the best houses in Benowa and it’s a really well-thought out home.”
Martin and Dina Kenins, who operate as Kenins Developments, built the ultra modern two-level house at 150 Sir Bruce Small Blvd before offloading it last year.
The exterior of the home uses extensive raw materials including timber, stone and concrete.
Entry to the property is through an enormous pivot door, which reveals a hidden gated courtyard, and proceed through to a front entrance.
A large open-plan living room, bar, dining room and kitchen is flanked by sliding doors and floor-to-ceiling windows that allow broad views across the lake.
The kitchen has a scullery and is fitted with dual Smeg ovens and an integrated coffee machine.
It has Caesarstone benchtops along with a mosaic tile feature wall.
There are 100 per cent wool carpets in the bedrooms, which include a guest suite on the lower level, an ensuite and a walk-in wardrobe.
A Tasmanian oak staircase leads upstairs to four other bedrooms, including a large master parents’ retreat.
The suite has a terrace with water views, walk-in wardrobe and an ensuite with dual vanities, showers and a freestanding bathtub.
The property has a magnesium swimming pool and landscaped gardens that are fully irrigated and have feature lighting.
Property records reveal the highest price paid in Benowa this year is $5.5 million for 64 Cabana Blvd.
