Magnificent Waterfront SanctuaryThis three-storey resort-style waterfront masterpiece within the prestigious Paradise Waters enclave, is undeniably magnificent whether you are arriving by land or by water. At the heart of the Gold Coast with a glittering skyline backdrop, it encompasses superb facilities including a pontoon, boathouse, sandy beach, hotel-style pool, home theatre, cabana and gym.
Incorporating innovative concepts from Iain Halliday from renowned Sydney architects Burley Katon Halliday, the home contains four bedrooms, two studies, a marble kitchen with Wolf and Subzero appliances and the lavish master wing is complete with his and her bathrooms and dressing room.
The imposing three-level design features entry and exit driveway gates to a grand porte cochere, whose dramatic butterfly roof is echoed over the third storey. Massive pivot doors open into the foyer where a stunning sculptural double staircase frames a view of the iconic Gold Coast skyline. Beyond the reception area a few steps lead down into the atrium dining room accommodating ten or more guests before a double-height wall of glass.
The symmetrical ground floor layout is bisected by a corridor linking formal living areas to the kitchen and family lounge, with natural light and inspiring water views flowing into every room along the way. Fine materials used throughout include isernia limestone flooring and gleaming Calacatta marble, reflecting in tinted glass and polished stainless steel.
The elegant staircase and upper level utilises wide planks of limewashed oak underfoot, while hi-tech inclusions offer total convenience, controlling lighting, climate, blinds, media systems and security at the touch of a button.
The design of the entertainer's kitchen subtly screens prep and cooking areas while serving the sunlit family room and beyond to the poolside cabana. Here a comprehensive bbq kitchen adjoins al fresco dining. The large white-tiled pool includes dedicated lap, swimming and sunbathing sections. At the sandy beach is a pontoon for a substantial cruiser plus jetski docks.
The southern end of the terrace accesses the formal lounge where mirror wall panels reflect water views by day and the city lights by night. A large but discreet bar serves this area and the luxurious home cinema across the hallway, whilst the adjacent fully fitted office with library is private behind sliding doors.
Upstairs, all four bedrooms feature captivating views and include individual ensuite bathrooms with designer fittings and solid marble vanities. The master suite incorporates a lounge area and multi-robes behind exotic grass paper panelling, with luxurious his and her ensuites in Aretusa marble featuring a French bath and bidet with a steam room. A spiral oak staircase winds up to a casual entertaining venue on the top level, incorporating a large gymnasium and two vast roof terraces providing panoramic views over waterways and the city's towers.
