Offering European stile and elegance, this expansive masterpiece nestled in Sanctuary Cove beautifully
combines traditional and contemporary design. Winner of house of the year and best home over $2m and
best bathroom at the Master Builders Gold Coast Awards. This incredible home is testament to the passion
and commitment of brothers Darren and Lloyd Teasdale of DTL Constructions.
Built for international clients with property in Europe and the pacific, this unique and luxurious home,
spanning 1540m2 offers a sophisticated European design which includes exquisite, light-filled spaces of
marble, stone and glass.
Generous arched windows capture the simple, yet inspiring water features and sophisticated pool area
surrounded by understated gardens and landscaping. “It means that you don’t have to call Europe home
to enjoy a beautiful space” Darren Teasdale says.
The luxurious ensuite to the master bedroom is undoubtedly a highlight of the home with the centrepiece
a unique wet edged tiled bath with marble finish.
Darren says that the depth of communication required between the himself and the clients, who was
heavily involved in the build, was essential to the success of the project.
This was by far and away the biggest project DTL has undertaken in its 16 years in business.
A tour of this home is an unforgettable experience, notwithstanding the homes ultimate space, quality and luxury,
it retains a bespoke warmth and a harmonious visual texture and is truly a testament to outstanding workmanship.
About the bathroom, this was Darren's first attempt at creating a wet edged tile bath which is the centrepiece.
This is where the water cascades over the edge of the bath and into the floor waste and from all reports it
was the first the judges had seen also.
As you can imagine, the logistics were extremely challenging and (Darren might not say so, because he
is too reserved) but he used all of his abilities of abstract reasoning, lateral thinking and creativity to complete it.
