The 1989 home has been through a succession of high-profile hands including the Sunland and Raptis groups, a rich Japanese businesswoman and a company with Malaysian links. 77 Commodore Drive Paradise WatersMr Collie said he added solar panels, a veranda, new double doors to the front entry and repainted the home.“It was originally black and grey,” he said. “I never imagined changing the home structurally because it has such a unique and beautiful design.”77 Commodore Drive, Paradise Waters4 5 4Price: $4.85 millionFeatures: Outdoor kitchen, swimming pool and atrium Area: 870sq mAgent: Elie Fakhri and Paula Fakhri, Joseph Douglas Realty, Surfers Paradise 77 Commodore Drive Paradise Waters“Over the years I have made some of my own upgrades and put our own style to it.“I have lived in a number of homes, some of them were the same size as this but the design was nowhere near as clever as this home.“It is a very easy home to live in, and it is comfortable while still being elegant.” 77 Commodore Drive Paradise WatersThe current homeowners, Kiwi couple Wayne and Elaine Collie bought the residence in 2004 after they looked at almost 100 homes between Noosa and Coolangatta. “We were living in New Zealand at the time and looking for a home on the coast which was close enough for our daughter Nadia to go to Bond University,” the businessman said. 77 Commodore Drive Paradise Waters“It was important to find a home that was well located in the middle of town and had a good neighbourhood, but this property also had a certain jaw-dropping presence about it.“When we stepped inside, the foyer really captured our attention.” Floor-to-ceiling glass in the lounge provide views of Main Beach and Southport.Dolphins are regular guests at the waterfront property, swimming up to the pontoon. 77 Commodore Drive Paradise WatersMore from news02:37Purchasers snap up every residence in the $40 million Siarn Palm Beach North9 hours ago02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa1 day agoDespite its luxurious style, Mr Collie said it was a practical home above all. “I can be in the study while we have a full house and I won’t notice it because of the space and clever floor plan,” he said. “There are always friends or family over.” The home is designed with two separate wings with bedrooms on either side. 77 Commodore Drive Paradise WatersThe four bedrooms have a hotel style and the main bedroom features a private balcony.

first_img Published on April 27, 2011 at 12:00 pm Facebook Twitter Google+ Lindsay Rogers sat on a cooler on the sideline watching her teammates beat Cornell 13-9 Tuesday. She wore her jersey with the number 50 on her back, but instead of her uniform skirt, she wore orange shorts. Instead of her mask, she sported a Syracuse baseball cap.Her elbows rested on her knees as she leaned forward on her cooler to see the action on the field. When the ball ventured into Syracuse’s defensive end, she raised her head up an extra 45 degrees and shouted advice to her fellow defenders and to SU goaltender Liz Hogan.Rogers has missed the past five games after reinjuring her knee against Connecticut. And with the key piece of the defense gone, SU head coach Gary Gait and his team have had to adapt.‘She provides so much leadership that it’s unfortunate that we don’t have that,’ Gait said. ‘But she still gives us some from the sideline, and that’s been great.’With Rogers absent, the defense has had to find new ways to compensate for her leadership and communication skills. And the unit has done just that. Since Roger’s injury, the Orange is 4-1, the loss coming to No. 17 Georgetown. The other four games were against unranked opponents. On Friday, when the Orange (8-7, 5-1 Big East) travels to play No. 5 Loyola (13-1, 5-1) at 7 p.m., the defense will face its toughest test yet without Rogers.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAs the leader of the defense, Rogers provided support for the other defenders. The defenders look up to her for leadership on the field, asking her about slides and covering cutters, said junior defender Janelle Stegeland. Just getting an occasional call from the sideline has been hard, she said.‘I’m always asking her questions,’ Stegeland said. ‘… I think that’s a little more difficult to not have someone right on the field with you.’Rogers also served to organize the defense. She was the chief communicator in the back, setting up the defense and making sure every opponent was covered. In Rogers’ first game out, Hogan stepped up to help with communication. The keeper came up big for her team with 11 saves. She earned Big East Defensive Player of the Week for her performance in the weekend’s games.Over the past four games, however, the defense has had to find a balance. Whether it’s communicating or making the big plays, Hogan said everyone on defense has contributed.‘She’s the communicator on defense,’ Stegeland said. ‘She’s always the one talking. She’s always the one directing … Between Liz and all the defense we’ve really filled that, but I think Liz has been a great part of that.’The Orange defense without Rogers will face its biggest challenge yet Friday. Loyola averages the most goals per game in the Big East at 14.21. They are led by senior attack Grace Gavin, who has had one of the best offensive seasons in the conference. She leads the league with just fewer than 5 points per game.Last season, Loyola was not as renowned because it lacked senior leadership. This year, however, Gait said that will help Greyhounds.‘Their team pretty much stayed intact from what it was last year, so that’s been their advantages this year — that they’ve had more experience than a lot of the other teams especially in the Big East,’ Gait said. ‘It’s propelled them from kind of the middle of the pack to the top.’Loyola and Syracuse are currently tied for second in the Big East each with two games left to play. Rogers is working her way back, and although she will definitely be on the bench for Friday’s game, she is expected back before the tournament.So without her, Syracuse will have to continue to put together a joint effort to fill the spot she has left behind.‘They’re not going to exactly be the leader that she was,’ Hogan said. ‘But at the same time, if everyone gives a little bit more, it kind of makes up for it.’alguggen@syr.educenter_img Commentslast_img read more
