Gold Coast real estate: Sanctuary Cove mansion records biggest sale of the week

Mrs Constable sketched the first floor plan then worked with an architect for months to turn it into their dream home. They made changes as they went along to improve the design, including a wood and glass staircase. “We had the staircase coming up the centre of the foyer but I sat down and designed (the existing) staircase myself,” Mrs Constable said. “We like it much, much better — it’s got more character to it.”But it’s the outdoor entertainment area with pool and barbecue overlooking the water they love most.“At Christmas time, we have had up to 24 people here,” Mr Constable said.

The fireplace, bar, home theatre and master bedroom ensuite with spa are among its best features.

Angels hitters and relievers pick up Tyler Skaggs to get a victory in sweltering Baltimore

first_imgAfter that, he didn’t give up anything else. The bullpen then came in and held the Orioles for the rest of the game. Meanwhile, the Angels hitters eventually capitalized on some mistakes from the Orioles, who are a major-league worst 23-59.The Angels won the game with five runs in the eighth, thanks to a game-tying double by Albert Pujols surrounded by a few Orioles miscues.With one out and the Angels down 2-1, Orioles righty Mychal Givins walked Mike Trout and Justin Upton. Pujols then launched a double off the wall in right-center field, tying the game and sending Upton to third.The Orioles intentionally walked Andrelton Simmons and brought in left-hander Tanner Scott to face left-handed hitting Luis Valbuena. The Angels instead send up righty Chris Young.Young hit a bouncer to third baseman Tim Beckham, who could have easily stepped on the bag and thrown to first to end the inning and preserve the tie. He also could have thrown home and at least prevented the go-ahead run, even if they got only one out.Instead, he stepped on third, hesitated and made a high throw to first base, barely pulling Chris Davis off the bag. Young was safe and the Angels took the lead.Ian Kinsler then beat out a chopper for an infield single, loading the bases again. Scott hit Martín Maldonado with a pitch, forcing in a run. David Fletcher then singled into center, driving in two more.Justin Anderson retired all three hitters in the eighth and Blake Parker worked the ninth to seal the victory.

(AP Photo/Gail Burton)ExpandBALTIMORE — In Tyler Skaggs’ first time back on the mound where he threw his final pitch before Tommy John surgery, he again had to come out of the game early.This time it was nothing that some cold water and air conditioning couldn’t resolve.After pitching five innings in the Angels’ eventual 6-2 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday, Skaggs told manager Mike Scioscia that he was “exhausted.” Working on a sweltering day, with a first-pitch temperature of 93 degrees, Skaggs said he was spent after 79 pitches.“It was definitely one of the hottest games I’ve thrown in a long time,” Skaggs said. Skaggs had also felt a tinge of cramping his calf when he was trying to cover first in the fifth inning. Skaggs, who earlier this month had his start pushed back because of hamstring tightness, told Scioscia how he felt.“I very rarely say I’m tired or anything, but today it felt like with the conditions we were in, I was pretty gassed,” he said. “I could have gone another one, but there’s no point. I’m glad my team picked me up. The bullpen did a great job today.”The Angels are obviously sensitive to any pitcher suggesting he has any sort of physical problem, because they’ve watched a string of pitchers go down with injuries over the past few years.Skaggs was pitching right here on July 31, 2014, when he complained of forearm tightness that ended up being a torn ulnar collateral ligament and Tommy John surgery.It took him two years to get back to the majors, but he’s now two years clear of any arm problems and pitching the best of his career. He allowed one earned run on Saturday, on three straight hits to begin the game.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
