A one-of-a-kind coastal living opportunity is now available in the exclusive Mermaid Beach area of the Gold Coast.
First highlighted in our hottest properties of the week at the beginning of February, this stunning, three-storey mansion fills up two blocks of land just steps away from the beach on Seashell Avenue.
The 748sqm Hamptons-style estate is painted eggshell blue with white trim, and European flourishes throughout. Large casement windows, French doors and soaring ceilings let the light flood in, accentuating detailed fretwork, panelled walls and whitewashed timber floors.
Kollosche agent Eoghan Murphy says it’s a privilege to list the home.
“It’s a cracker,” he says. “I’ve been in the area a long time and I’ve always wanted to get inside this house, so when they called me I was pretty shocked and excited.”
“When you see it on the street it has a massive presence, it’s one of those houses that draw you in, but stepping inside is like a different world. It’s completely private with all those gardens around the property and it capitalises on that sunshine.”
Folding concertina doors stack away to create immediate access to multiple covered alfresco dining and sitting zones, overlooking a resort-style pool and lush tropical gardens.
An indoor-outdoor kitchen is an entertainer’s dream – equipped with a built-in BBQ, TV sports bar and ample bench space, it’s ideal for any size event.
There’s more than one kitchen though, and the main, ‘farmers’ kitchen is one of a kind. Intricately carved timber cabinets and counters fill up the space, with a bespoke navy blue oven in pride of place.
Heading to bed is an experience in itself! The upstairs master suite is reached via a floating bridge, set over the joint living/dining space, with additional bedrooms and another bathroom at the other end of the floor.
“It’s something different but it’s not too dated or out there,” Eoghan says. “It suits the area.”
“Anything that comes up in this area attracts a lot of interest and this being completely unique has attracted even more.”
The cherry on top of this confection is a den, aptly dubbed “The Lookout”. Up here casement windows allow 280-degree views of the ocean, Mermaid Beach and the hinterland.
From the top to the bottom, and the basement floor holds some exciting secrets. There’s room for four cars in the basement with space left over for a home gym, plus a plant room, and a wine cellar off the foyer.
“You’d probably only find a handful of double blocks with a single property on it, and I’m pretty confident in saying this is the only one on a northeast-facing corner,” Eoghan divulges.
“It’s pretty unique, so there’s a lot of enquiries to sift through.”
There’s only a limited amount of time to make an enquiry – expressions of interest on this cracker close Tuesday, March 9 at 5 pm.
