The kitchen is almost too good to use, according to homeowner Vicki Gregory.The couple added a 135sq m deck to the rear of the house, overlooking the lake.“There is so much birdlife on the water with ducks, swans and pelicans,” Ms Gregory said.“It’s a little oasis in the middle of Robina.”center_img 5 Julatten Drive, Robina.MARK Gregory refused to get out of the car when he and wife Vicki first inspected 5 Julatten Drive, Robina. “The agent came around to the car window and made him get out,” Ms Gregory said.“He said, ‘You’ve got to be nuts, we can’t take on a project like this’.” The home opens to reveal a grand staircase.“They don’t make houses like this anymore.“Structurally there were no issues because it’s concrete so there were no cracks and we brought a builder on board who said, ‘If you don’t buy this, I’m buying it’.” Ms Gregory has a soft spot for the huge kitchen. “Everyone walks in and just goes, ‘Wow’,” she said.“It’s so nice I don’t want to get it dirty.”last_img read more
