Gold Coast house with showstopping design hits the market

first_imgIt’s the ultimate family haven.When crafting the house, light was carefully considered. The living areas are light filled from sunrise to sunset, the pool enjoys the rays all day long and the outdoor entertainment zones are protected from the weather for year-round use. It’s the natural light that makes the living area Ms Poole’s favourite spot. “What I really love about it is that from every angle in the living area, the sun can penetrate through all the windows,” she said, “The way it has been designed, it opens up to the north and we enjoy light throughout the day. Plus, the pool area enjoys the sun all day but the house is also protected from the weather.” The four-bedroom house exudes style at every turn. It is set to head under the hammer on August 24.Owner Donna Poole, who has lived at the property with her family for a decade, said it was completely rebuilt in 2013. “The reason we bought the house was we wanted to be in a quiet cul-de-sac position on the Isle of Capri,” she said. “It has been a great family home with great entertaining and great indoor outdoor living.

From its impressive kerbside appeal through to the waterfront deck and every nook and cranny in-between, the Isle of Capri house is stunning and stylish. Created by Jared Poole, of self-titled design company, the modern abode at 104 Gibraltar Drive is characterised by high ceilings, chic fittings and an effortless flow between the indoor living zones and outdoor areas. It was also designed to be the ultimate family haven, where kids can feel right at home and parents can enjoy some privacy.

Ms Poole said the waterfront lifestyle could be thoroughly enjoyed thanks to the property’s boat ramp, shed and winch. “Not all houses on the water have a boatshed and they are hard to get approval for now so we retained it and refurbished it,” she said. The family are selling to move locally. The four-bedroom house is set to head under the hammer on August 24 through Ray White Broadbeach duo Sam Guo and Julia Kuo.

Wisconsin enters tournament on roll

first_imgBEN CLASSON/Herald photoAfter losing to No. 1 Penn State Nov. 16 — which secured afifth-straight Big Ten title for the Nittany Lions — the No. 9 Wisconsinvolleyball team (25-4, 17-3 Big Ten) wanted to finish strong over the finalthree games before the NCAA tournament started.”It’s important to have momentum going into the tournament,”senior co-captain Jocelyn Wack said. “That is something we strive for everyyear.”With a pair of sweeps over Iowa (9-21, 1-18) and Minnesota(18-12, 11-9) this past weekend, the Badgers accomplished their goal and willnow enter the tournament on a three-match winning streak.”We definitely stepped our game up and are playing a lotstronger overall as a group,” senior setter Jackie Simpson said. “That isdefinitely something we wanted to do. We kind of hit that midseason brick wallagainst Michigan State. I think we really stepped it up a notch and going intothe tournament it is where we want to be at.”In the seniors’ final home match, Taylor Reineke refused tolet her team lose, as she took over the match early in game one and led herteam to a sweep of rival Minnesota 30-19, 30-17, 30-16. For the night, Reinekeled all players with 14 kills and a .667 hitting percentage. She also chippedin with three blocks.”This is the last Big Ten match and I’m a senior so this isall I have left,” Reineke said. “I just wanted to end on a good note and helpthe team going into the NCAA. … The team played really well today. All thepasses were on the target and the sets were on the money.”After the match, even the Minnesota players were impressedwith Reineke’s performance.”I actually played club with [Reineke],” Minnesota middleblocker Jesse Jones said. “On her senior night I’m happy that she got a win. Itis the best I’ve every seen her play, especially offensively.”Besides the strong play from Reineke, Wisconsin used toughserving to help separate itself from Minnesota throughout the match. TheBadgers had runs of 11-0 in the first game and 6-0 in the second and thirdgames.”That was our goal,” head coach Pete Waite said about theBadgers’ serving game. “We’ve been working on it all year, and I think the teamreally realized it’s time to get it done now. We had pressure on them the wholetime, which kept them out of their offense, kept them out of rhythm, and keptthem on their heels. It gave us momentum throughout the entire match.”Wisconsin finished the match with six service aces and keptthe Golden Gophers to a .000 hitting percentage. Jones and Kyla Roehrig, two ofMinnesota’s top hitters, combined for only five kills against 12 errors for a-.233 hitting percentage.”I thought Wisconsin served the ball about as well as youcan serve it,” Minnesota head coach Mike Hebert said. “When you start servingthat aggressively you can keep a team off balance, and they kept us off balanceall night.”Wisconsin opened up their final home weekend of the regularseason by dispatching last-place Iowa 30-20, 30-22, 30-23 in front of 5,046fans. Before the match, Wisconsin honored five seniors — Reineke, Wack,Simpson, Megan Mills, and Amanda Berkley — for their contributions to the teamover the last four years.”I thought we did a nice job tonight,” Waite said. “When wewere down at Iowa, we went four games with them and it was one of our goals totry and get it down in three tonight.”Iowa senior Stacy Vitali opened the match with a kill togive the Hawkeyes an early lead. However, after both teams traded a couple points,sophomore Caity DuPont put down her first kill of the night to give Wisconsin a3-2 edge that the Badgers would not give up the rest of the game.”[Iowa] had some different people in the lineup,” Waitesaid. “Vitali on the left side was kind of a surprise to us, but I thought theteam adjusted well to that.”Wisconsin then used the momentum gained in the first game tocruise to another sweep and send Iowa to its 15th-straight Big Ten loss.For the night, Wisconsin led Iowa in every statisticalcategory, including kills, where the Badgers had a 51-36 lead. DuPont led allplayers with a career-high 16 kills.”Earlyin the season [DuPont] and Al Wack were really going back and forth with courttime and Caity really stepped it up,” Waite said. “Each week she has been onthe court, she has gotten more confident and stronger out there so she hasreally earned it.”SophomoreBrittany Dolgner was the only other player in double digits with 10 kills.Katherine Dykstra and Taylor Reineke chipped in with nine and eight killsrespectively.last_img read more

Fast reaction: 3 quick takeaways from Syracuse’s ACC-opening win at Virginia Tech

first_imgSyracuse (10-4) begins the 2015 calendar year and the Atlantic Coast Conference season 1-0 with its 68-66 victory over Virginia Tech (8-6, 0-1) in Blacksburg, Virginia on Saturday afternoon.Although the Hokies were shorthanded without their suspended leading rebounder Joey van Zegeren, VT still made a second-half push that nearly erased SU’s 19-point halftime lead and made the Orange sweat a bit. Here are three quick takeaways from SU’s ACC opener.Get bigWith van Zegeren inactive, the Hokies started four guards. Forward Shane Henry, at 6 feet, 8 inches, was the only VT starter taller than 6 feet, 5 inches. Seven-foot freshman Satchel Pierce came off the bench, but he drew three first-half fouls and fouled out with five minutes left, and the Hokies were often relegated to small lineups.And Syracuse took advantage, with a 26-14 edge on the boards by halftime. Tyler Roberson had 10 of his 17 boards by the break and Rakeem Christmas had 10 first-half points en route to a 17-point, nine-rebound performance.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textFirst stepACC play proved to be the beginning of Trevor Cooney’s downfall last season after a strong nonconference performance.And his outing Saturday encompassed both ups and downs. Cooney netted 18 points and did so with the versatility that he’s displayed well so far this season. He hit four 3s, connected on a few midrange pull-up jumpers and aggressively attacked the rim as he helped diversify SU’s inside-heavy offense.But Cooney had a rough second half, making just one of his nine attempts, as the Orange shot 31.8 percent in the second half after a 43.2 percent clip in the first. When it was all said and done, Cooney finished 6-for-21, including 4-of-13 from 3-point land.Changing of the guardWhile Cooney turned in a strong first half, point guard Kaleb Joseph played just eight minutes in the first frame to Ron Patterson’s 12. Joseph committed two first-half fouls and picked up his third and fourth in the second half, which opened up more playing time for Patterson.The sophomore’s 3-point shooting woes continued, misfiring on four attempts, but he successfully drove to the basket and dished out three assists to make himself useful while Joseph sat on the bench.But Patterson also contributed to the Orange’s free-throw shooting troubles — making just two out of six in the final 41 seconds — at the end of the game that kept the Hokies within striking distance.
