Sitting atop the trees in the heart of Bonogin on the Gold Coast is the perfect balance of privacy and interaction with the outside world.
Set on 42.6 acres, 327 Chesterfield Drive, Bonogin is eye-catching, and looking for a new owner.
Look at how the landscape hugs the perimeters of the home, each section neatly bordered with large sandstone retaining walls. But beyond the impressive design are the equally impressive views – stretching from Coolangatta to Surfers Paradise with not a soul in sight.
This property is the brainchild of Gold Coast architect Jared Poole, and what he’s created is a greater connection to the outdoors.
Everything revolves around a large, wrap-around terrace where the indoors can spill out, and you can wake up with the sun to watch the wildlife. A bar and al fresco area are perfectly positioned next to the infinity-edge pool, which shines almost as much as the sun thanks to mosaic glass tiles!
There’s almost 1,800sqm of lawn spread around the home, divided by sandstone retaining walls. The closest is literal steps from the terrace and comes with a firepit in just the right location for evening marshmallows.
It’s lovely and breezy inside, where the interiors still have their roots in nature. Gorgeous timber ceilings soar 4.4 metres high, grounded by the stone feature walls. What’s most striking is how all the design elements fit together – visually, it’s all very harmonious.
The kitchen is stunning, but simple enough so as not to disrupt the views. The five-metre stone island bench is a standout, complemented by more feature stone, dual ovens and a butler’s pantry.
The polished concrete floors turn to spotted gum in the bedrooms. All four are king-sized, with the best views reserved for the master, where super-sized glass sliders and electric louvres welcome in the breeze. The stunning en suite has views of its own, and beauty to complement it. Brushed copper fittings bring a splash of colour to the natural palette, with a swirl of marble in the double shower – each tile costing $2,500!
Along with an oversized five-car garage, there’s a huge shed to the west of the home with 7.5-metre ceilings, perfect for all the toys you can think of. And guests? They can stay at the granny flat – it even has a full kitchen!
