A MILLION-DOLLAR renovation has breathed new life into this Surfers Paradise penthouse. Sprawled across two levels of the Peninsula tower, the four-bedroom apartment is being offered to the market for the first time.
Developer the late Dr Morven Dan of Progress Properties built the tower in 1982 and hung on to one of the two penthouses.
His family enjoyed holidaying on the Gold Coast and spent many weekends soaking up the luxurious lifestyle overlooking the Glitter Strip.
Daughter Lindsay Taylor inherited the apartment in 2012. She and husband David, who are based in Sydney, spent $1 million transforming the dated property into a modern masterpiece
The pair enlisted construction company GPH Projects and design practice Jayson Pate Design to bring their vision to life.
“The brief was to renovate to the highest luxury standard possible,” David explains.
“Not a dollar has been spared on the renovation.”
During an 18-month period, the entire apartment was rebuilt. The renovation was completed in June, 2015.
“Everything was gutted – the kitchen, bathrooms and laundry were all stripped,” he says. “There used to be a wall between the kitchen and lounge and that was opened up.”
The apartment, on levels 45 and 46, has a private foyer accessible via a lift. Once inside, the 280-degree views demand your attention.
