The sprawling mansion at 14 Westminster Court, Sovereign Islands was designed to take advantage of the spectacular outlook, according to homeowner Mark Sutcliffe. The home was inspired by Jared Poole’s mammoth house designsThe wine cellar is one of the standout features in the home which Mr Sutcliffe said is also the biggest talking point.“When we have guests or friends over they comment on two things as soon as they enter, the view and then the wine cellar, in that order too,” he said. “I have been running a trucking business in Brisbane for the past 15 years and the traffic is taking its toll so I have decided to move to Brisbane with the family. Sit down and enjoy theatrical sunsetsMr Sutcliffe said he and his family first moved to the Soveriegn Islands in 2007 and this home was their latest project. “It was designed by Jared Poole,” Mr Sutcliffe said.“I’ve always been a big fan of his work and have seen some of his designs on the Island so when my wife and I found this block we got him to help bring our ideas to life.”More from news02:37Purchasers snap up every residence in the $40 million Siarn Palm Beach North7 hours ago02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa1 day agoThe homes was designed around big open spaces and high ceilingsMr Sutcliffe said the dream was to open the front door and see the view throughout the house and build a wine cellar that would act as an art piece. “I spent a lot on engineering to perfect the clean lines and big open spaces with the soaring ceilings,” he said. “That was our vision, to have a home that was a little more squared and open.” Views captured perfectly from the bedrooms.“I have a feeling we will be back on the Sovereign Islands in the future.” One of these mega features includes a commercial-grade sliding door.

first_imgCup holders Nigeria has all to play for to earn a slot in the finals of the U23 Africa Cup of Nations holding in Egypt in November, as they take the pitch at the Stephen Keshi Stadium, Asaba this evening trailing Sudan by a lone goal.A goal seconds to the end of the first half in Omdurman last Thursday left the Olympic Eagles nursing a deficit, and Head Coach Imama Amapakabo has said there would be no pulling punches from kick off on Tuesday.“We were unlucky to lose the first leg game, but there is no need crying over spilt milk. Tuesday is here and the battle must be won. We are the defending champions and we must be in Egypt to defend our title.” The Olympic Eagles have been training in Asaba since arriving in the Delta State capital on Sunday, and have been strengthened by the arrival of former FIFA U17 World Cup-winning captain Kelechi Nwakali.Nwakali will string things in midfield with captain Azubuike Okechukwu, with Blessing Muyiwa, Sunusi Ibrahim, Stephen Odey and Taiwo Awoniyi expected to do a better job of putting away opportunities this time.Goalkeeper Adamu Abubakar pulled a number of huge saves in Omdurman, and is expected to start, with former U17 World Cup winner John Lazarus and Ebube Duru at wing-back.As they file onto the pitch, Amapakabo’s charges will recall that it was on the same turf they hit Libya by four goals to nothing in the earlier round, after a two-goal reverse in Tunisia.The Confederation of African Football has appointed Guinean official Bangaly Konate as referee for the match, to be assisted by his compatriots Mamady Tere (assistant referee 1), Abdoulaye Sylla (assistant referee 2) and Tawel Younoussa Camara (fourth official). Mr. Luleseged Begashaw Asfaw from Ethiopia will be the match commissioner.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
