The skilled renovation of this coastal home is a spectacular example of modern Queensland living, tailored towards easy living and making the most of its waterfront location.
The transformation of what was once a rundown brick home has yielded a stunning, contemporary abode that boasts light, airy and sleek spaces made for entertaining family and friends.
This house is just one of the impressive renovations featured in Edition 1 of the QH Building & Renovating digital mini-mag, now available to view online.
“We came to this project through working with the Architect, Justin Humphrey,” says Lynn Lindon from Lindon Homes. “The original home is on a water block with a jetty and a North Easterly aspect, so the design and build have kept this idyllic waterside lifestyle in mind.”
There’s a sophisticated blending of the previous brick house and new architecturally designed addition that makes this an inspiring example of how renovating an old home can yield a modern masterpiece.

The kitchen is a standout of the finished home, with its hidden office space (a nifty design trick!), and beautiful blending of surfaces and finishes. But it’s the high raked VJ ceiling that is the real showstopper here, allowing for a solid timber casement opening from the retreat above, overlooking the lounge and dining zones, and completely opening up the interiors of the new extension, flooding the home with natural light.
Lindon Homes fully refurbished all of the existing bedrooms, with the Master bedroom, boasting views of the waterway, located on the ground floor for easy access. A lift to the upper retreat levels offers even more comfortable living and functional luxury.
The finished home is a contemporary stunner – the coming together of great architecture and building expertise. Inspiring style, and every renovator’s dream result.
