Hamptons-style home like you’ve never seen before

first_imgThe home has five bedrooms, five bathrooms and a triple car garage.The end result is a residence where just one standout feature is impossible to choose from. “The overall view of the waterfront is spectacular, it’s the widest part of the Nerang River and it lights up with the night-life of Surfers Paradise,” Mr Matthews said. More from news02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa19 hours ago02:37Gold Coast property: Sovereign Islands mega mansion hits market with $16m price tag2 days agoThe interior was designed to offer warmth and comfort. 1a Yacht St, Southport was built by the vendors about four years ago.And given the lengths the vendors of this Southport residence went to recreate the classic Hamptons architecture, it’s easy to see how. “We wanted absolutely traditional Hamptons, we even imported the shingle roof from America,” said vendor Greg Matthews.“It was really my wife’s choice, she just loves the overall architectural style.”Julie Matthews, who has a background in interior style and design, even travelled to the Hamptons to search for inspiration and source decor before the couple began to build. “When most of our other homes sold, they went fully furnished because people wanted what she had done inside,” said Mr Matthews, a retired businessman. 1a Yacht St, Southport is on the market for offers over $9.5 million.THE vendors of this spectacular Hamptons-style waterfront residence in the heart of Southport stopped at nothing to achieve their dream design.Aside from the iconic, glittering city skyline and river vista, you could be forgiven for feeling like you’re on Long Island, ensconced in this elegant, coastal-style mansion with timber panelling, ocean-inspired palettes and plenty of natural light. Another look at the spectacular city and river vista.The interior offers up the ‘suite life’ — the master wing boasts a lounge room, dressing room, limestone ensuite and balcony; features almost mirrored in the private guest suite. Elsewhere, a rumpus room adjoins a media room while a formal pillared lounge jostles with a luxurious library for opulence points. Quantum Quartz glistens as the kitchen’s benchtops, and bi-fold doors glide open to seamlessly join the dining area with the outdoor setting, which overlooks a sparkling pool, sandy beach and pontoon. The kitchen has a wine cellar and butlers pantry. Forget Long Island. This is a view!This waterfront project was an easy decision. “We built it about four years ago, we demolished the old house,” Mr Matthews said.“We didn’t even need to look at the old house when we bought the block … it was just an unbeatable location.”The east-facing block, sheltered by a gated, Cypress tree-lined driveway, translates to spectacular vistas, matched only by the sheer grandeur of the home. The second storey “floats” with huge voids, with the interior accentuated by American Oak flooring, cornices and American plantation shutters and decor. last_img read more

South Brisbane is highly sought after because of its vibrant array of dining, shopping and entertainment options, plus its proximity to the CBD and other neighbouring hotspots such as West End,” Mr Chiu said. Brisbane 1 at South Brisbane. Brisbane 1 is a new development $500 million development at South Brisbane with 608 apartments across three towers. Photos: SuppliedResidents of South Brisbane’s largest new apartment project, Brisbane 1, will start moving in this month, with the first tower complete.The $500 million development is the highest building in South Brisbane, consisting of three separate towers of up to 33 storeys connected by an expansive recreation and pool deck servicing the 608 apartments.The landmark building occupies an entire block bordered by Cordelia, Peel and Boundary streets on the site of the former South Brisbane TAFE College.

R&F Property Australia vice president Thomas Chiu said he was delighted to announce the completion of the first tower, which represented the company’s first completed stage of an Australian development.“In the next few weeks, further settlements will be taking place and we will be welcoming our very first residents to Brisbane 1,” he said. “Unlike many other large projects, we opted to construct all three towers of Brisbane 1 concurrently, which has resulted in a record-breaking build time and will greatly reduce the time residents are subjected to construction activity.”About 80 per cent of apartments in the premium project have sold prior to the completion of the first tower while construction of the remaining two towers is expected to finish ahead of schedule later this year.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus12 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market12 hours ago Follow @ReshniRatnam on Instagram.last_img read more

Wife slaps husband with $14,000 lawsuit for not having sex

first_img Sharing is caring! Share Tweet Share 32 Views   no discussionscenter_img Share LifestyleRelationships Wife slaps husband with $14,000 lawsuit for not having sex by: – September 9, 2011 Image via Daniel Borman/FlickrYou know what they say: Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. And I’ve got to assume it was fury, plain and simple — or spite, to be more precise — that drove a woman in France to sue her ex-husband for $14,000 because he refused to have sex with her during the 21 years they were married. What but the humiliating sting of rejection would drive someone to seek monetary compensation for an absence of action in the bedroom? Why else would you even attempt to quantify the cash value of two decades of sex?Which brings me to what I think is the most fascinating aspect of this case: How exactly does one put a price on sex? Speaking strictly of those persons who are not represented by a pimp, of course. Is there some kind of crazy mathematical formula that can be applied?Perhaps details like position and duration are considered equation-altering variables. I would imagine an after-work quickie to be less valuable than a morning sex marathon …Then again, if the Frenchwoman in question wasn’t getting any at all, she must have been dealing mostly in approximations and generalizations when she came up with the sum of $14,000. Twenty-one years of marriage … that’s less than $1,000 annually. Let’s figure she allocated about $650 for each year, so $650 divided by 12 months … okay, basically, in the eyes of this lady (and the judge who awarded her the dough), 1 month of married sex is worth roughly $54.Huh! How ’bout them apples! I guess that’s a pretty good deal? But not knowing the frequency and flavor of a given month’s activities, it’s difficult to say.Still. If the Frenchwoman is planning on using her compensation to buy some lovin’, I hope she doesn’t try to make that wad last for 20 damn years. Blow it all at once, I say! Go out with a bang. So to speak.Why do you think this woman sued her ex for lack of sex?by The_Stirlast_img read more

Was It Papa Bear? Barcelona has slapped an eye-watering buyout clause of nearly $450 million (400m euros) on new signing Miralem Pjanić. Loading… The Bosnian international’s move will see Barcelona’s Arthur head in the other direction, with Juventus paying an initial $80 million for the Brazilian. Arthur joined Barcelona from Brazilian club Grêmio in 2018, winning the league title and Super Cup in his debut season. Like Pjanić, the 23-year-old will not move to his new club until the end of the current season. Juventus has also agreed a year-long contract extension for both 35-year-old captain Giorgio Chiellini and 42-year-old goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon. read also:Barcelona, Juventus confirm Arthur, Pjanic swap deal “Super Gigi is proof that age is only a number,” read a statement from the club. The veteran keeper has played more than 500 times for Juventus since his debut in 2001 and returned to the Italian outfit last year after a stint with French champion PSG. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 The midfielder will head to the Catalan club from Juventus at the end of the current season with the move costing more than $67m (60m euros). The 30-year-old has signed a four-year deal with the reigning La Liga champion after a successful stint in the Italian Serie A. He helped Juventus win three league titles in his four years at the club and looks set to add another this season with the team four points clear at the top of the table. His move to Spain comes after a turbulent season for Barcelona — which sits just two points behind fierce rival Real Madrid in the league, with six fixtures remaining. “I am very happy, I will give my all for this club. See you soon,” Pjanić wrote on Instagram.Advertisementlast_img read more
