Spectacular Residence ~ Spectacular Views - Spectacular GroundsThis magnificent property epitomises all the very best of Tamborine Mountain living and offers a huge panoramic Gold Coast vista that spans from Stradbroke Island to Coolangatta and around to the mountainous country that includes Beechmont and the top of the border Ranges to the south. The home is set against a dense band of natural forest that runs along the upper side and rear boundaries and looks down over its grounds to those treed surroundings. It has been designed to integrate the panorama into the internal living with huge expanses of tinted glass that allow the visual splendour be the backdrop to every waking moment. Of course, the night light views as beyond spectacular too.
The custom designed and built home has been constructed to the highest engineering standards and indicates a contemporary profile on the exterior. Yet inside, it is a stunning Federation style home replete with all those special features like 9 foot tall ceilings, ceiling roses, ornate cornices and classic timber trims. Varied green tonings and appropriate light fittings plus perfect draperies where needed create a cool and enveloping ambience throughout the home. All the living areas and the kitchen can look out to the views and the informal living areas also get to enjoy a truly tropical outlook onto masses of tree ferns climbing up the terraced bank beyond the tiled and extremely private patio.
The living area is really one enormous space with its roof held up by plaster encased huge steel girders. It encompasses 2 sides of the kitchen, yet only the informal dining area can look into the kitchen. Positioning of furniture can very easily break the area into any configuration desired. Anyone working in the kitchen can look out through its wide open servery window over the formal living area and right down to the Gold Coast. The all Blackwood timber kitchen falls in that category normally described by agents as "a dream kitchen" and indeed it is as practical as it is visually beautiful. Its special features include a large pantry, double wide open space for both upright freezer and fridge, a superb island bench and the grand 2 door glass fronted china cabinet recessed into the wall of the informal dining area.
The sumptuous main bedroom with its fully outfitted walk-in robe and 6 star carpeted ensuite is the essence of tranquility and self indulgence with a private covered patio looking out into the tropical gardens. The other bedrooms and even the study fall into the same category as does the main bathroom where once again solid timber fittings and trims continue the decor found in the living areas.
Internal stairs lead down to the garage level where the triple garage, 2 workshops and the self-contained flat with its own private outdoor living patio and glorious garden views would offer an ideal situation for either family members or for live-in help / caretakers if needed.
The grounds here are an incredible tribute to the thinking and dedication that has gone into making the whole property exquisite. The land is far from level, yet the plantings and serpentine pathways have been arranged to make access through the grounds quite simple and easy. There are level areas of path, some with timber walkways, even a rustic timber bridge. Then there are steps and handrails with one delightful bend in the path having a perfect little place for a garden seat to sit and look out over the views. So much thought and imagination has gone into the design and combinations that you find here. It appears as if there will always be some things in flower during the entire year and there are many native plants for the birds as well as fruit trees and exotic species. Bright and colourful foliage plants are dotted throughout to provide striking contrasts that rivet the eye as you look down on them. Yes, this garden will grow to be one of Australia's finest gardens and take its place in history.
