An exclusive Mermaid Beach property has been taken off the market thanks to a Melbourne buyer looking for some family time.
The 564sqm absolute beachfront house boasts marble staircases, a crystal chandelier, and six bedrooms spread across four floors, but that’s not what made buyers say ‘wow’, according to Kollosche agent Ryan Ward.
“It’s a beautiful home built by a Gold Coast local, and at 564sqm it has a wider frontage so it really captures that ocean view,” Ryan says.
“So you show a home like that and you have such a commanding view that people stop and take it in.
“It’s a lovely home to enter into, an attractive home on the street, but the ocean draws people to stop and stare out at that beautiful blue.”
There’s plenty to see, with fold away concertina glass panels on the ground floor giving you direct access to the beach from the living room.
The best views are ones you can share, and this house is an entertainer’s dream from top to bottom. In the basement there’s plenty of parking, but also a wine cellar, gym, and even a sauna to steam out any sore muscles.
There’s a wet bar to complement the gourmet kitchen facilities on the ground floor, and a second bar within easy reach in the top floor’s media room. Need to resupply? This exclusive property is just a short walk to shops and cafes, and only five minutes drive from Pacific Fair.
All this gleaming marble and clear glass has been tastefully accented with polished steel, best showcased by the glass-framed marble stairs bridging the levels. But for those days when you don’t feel like the stairs (maybe after an afternoon in the downstairs gym), getting around this palatial property is easier than you’d think, with an internal lift joining each floor as well.
“There’s plenty of space, and the room downstairs is set up like a kids’ retreat so it lends itself to families, or people with extended families that would be staying,” Ryan says.
“There was lots of interstate interest, even some overseas interest, but it went to a Melbourne-based buyer looking to spend more time here with the family, so it really suits what they’re looking for.
“It’s a beautiful home with big windows to bring in that beautiful natural light.”
What’s not to love, with a gorgeous street frontage, marble finishings throughout, and views of the Gold Coast hinterland as well as panoramic views up and down the coast.
And for those rare days when you don’t want an ocean swim, take a dip in the beach-facing mosaic tiled pool, or relax in the master bedroom’s luxurious en suite spa!
