Anything missing? When it comes to opening a bottle at home, you can also raise a glass to your personal wine fridge. No doubt the new owners of the Norman Street residence will toast to that.

Space to relax outdoors? That’s well and truly covered.The residence is touted as offering a permanent holiday lifestyle, but if you do choose to venture away, the central location means the Gold Coast International Airport is a seven minute drive, while a private boat ramp puts the Tweed River on your doorstep.It’s the second property Mr Foggo has bought, demolished and rebuilt after a successful sale at Banora Point in 2015. He’s now preparing to do it all over again, eyeing off another Tweed Heads residence. From old shack to pool with a view.“There was nothing like it anywhere in the area, especially this new and modern, everything was dated,” he said.“I thought I’d set myself apart.”The redo took eight months, and the result is a stunning, modern home, with a myriad of unique features, such as polished concrete floors that complement a glossy timber finish on the ceiling. Perfect for entertaining.Mr Foggo said his tradesperson credentials streamlined the process. “Having contacts is a big one, then there’s the skill. Being around it for so long, I’m comfortable in the construction arena.”The carpenter is also pretty handy when it comes to the finer things in life. Mr Foggo owns Tasca wine bar in Coolangatta, and he’s cooked up a design storm by installing two separate gourmet kitchens. The indoor option features marble benchtops, a suite of high-quality appliances and water views. The timber ceiling almost creates an illusion.last_img read more
