THE votes are in and the people have spoken — a dreamy Ibiza-inspired beach pad in Burleigh Heads has been voted Queensland’s favourite house.
Bajo El Sol Beach House, built by PJH Constructions, was the 2020 People’s Choice recipient at the Master Builders Queensland Housing & Construction Awards on Friday night.
The popular photo shoot location was a runaway favourite, attracting thousands of votes to top off a stellar year for PJH Constructions.
The Bajo El Sol project won the Individual Home $951,000 – $1.25 million category at the Master Builders Gold Coast Housing & Construction Awards in July, where director Paul Harms also received the Ron McMaster Memorial Award for Excellence in Craftsmanship.
The vision for the picture perfect residence came from owner and interior designer Kelle Howard who now plays host to big name brands for high end photo shoots.
