You’re about to get the full tour of a 30-million-dollar waterfront property on the Gold Coast.
Spanning four blocks, Chateau De Reves at King Arthurs Court in Sovereign Islands is attracting world-wide attention.
This home is insanely adventurous in design – it looks like a sports stadium, and there’s a very nautical theme inside.
A dramatically tiled circular drive wraps around a bubbling fountain and delivers you to an even more dramatic front entry. These coral-inspired doors are mind-blowing, and that’s before you discover they’re automatic! They’re worth $400,000, and have attracted the eye of more than one high profile individual – the Pope himself bid on them at auction.
The foyer’s Murano glass ‘aquarium’ is exquisite enough to give you goosebumps, especially when the sunlight dances across those colourful glass fish.
The living room comes with everything you could want: marble floors with matching grounds the whole way through, 13-metre high ceilings, and soaring panes of glass to invite the natural world in.
Impressed? You haven’t seen anything until you’ve looked at the spine of the stairs. There’s no seams or joins here – it’s one solid piece of stainless steel, designed and shipped in all the way from Italy, and worth one million dollars.
Ready to shake and stir? This open bar has one of the biggest marble counters around, and some seriously cool retro chairs.
It gets even better in the leisure room, where you can literally swim in gold. This luxurious pool winds its way through the back deck, past sliding glass and inside, where it’s lined with genuine 24-carat gold.
Further in the house, you’ll find a gym to rival even a commercial space, a Turkish steam room, plus a tennis court if you fancy a game!
There’s plenty of modern embellishments to the estate, but there’s something for the retro fans too. The retro kitchen is a blast from the past with plenty of storage space. It’s one of two in the home, and it’s very roomy. As the master kitchen, it comes with a custom-made Teppanyaki table and plenty of high-end appliances, but the second, commercial-grade kitchen is equally nice.
There are eight bedrooms spread across this massive, 3,070sqm property, each with its own en suite bathroom, and plenty of privacy. The master is under lock and key, but if the others are anything to go by, it will be the size of an apartment.
Winter doesn’t get too cold on the Gold Coast, but for the handful of cold days throughout the year, you’ll be glad for the underfloor heating. It’s been installed throughout the entire house, perfect for keeping your toes warm in winter! And revheads might need that heating to recover from the shivers after they hear about the underground parking. Accessible via a lift from all levels, Chateau De Reves has space for 14 cars in its basement, and a private full-size pontoon for any sort of watersports you can imagine.
