While the builder said his favourite part was watching the boats sail by on the main river, the concrete design always had his guests talking. “I used stressed concrete flooring panels so there would be no need for columns throughout the house,” he said.“This is really handy in the basement because you don’t drive into any columns, it’s just a huge basement space. 5250-5252 Marine Drive North, Sanctuary Cove.Mr Fiebig and his wife moved into the house in 2009 and said they were inspired by luxury Gold Coast properties. Mr Fiebig said his home is also his office and that it also works as a showroom.“Our clients can see what we can do when they step inside, there are high ceilings and luxury finishes,” Mr Fiebig said. Sitting proudly on a large 1384sq m block facing the Coomera River, the house is an ultra-modern statement. 5250-5252 Marine Drive North, Sanctuary Cove.“Most people are amazed by how big it is and how easy it is to turn around, there is no need for a turntable if you’ve got the design spot on.
