A haven of waterfront tranquillity and unrivalled magnificence, standing grandly on the river of one of Australia’s most desirable and vivacious coastal cities, are four exquisite new apartments that have redefined the standard in ultimate luxury living, and unparalleled craftsmanship and design.

River Isles apartments are extraordinarily positioned with unhindered sweeping views to Narrowneck Beach and the vivid Surfers Paradise skyline, in a location rarely sought after by all. Stanhill Drive is renowned for its prestige, located on the peaceful and esteemed urban islet of Chevron Island and at the doorstep of Surfers Paradise, the vivacious social hub of the Gold Coast, and home to the stunning beaches for which Surfers Paradise was named.

As the winner after being nominated for the BDAQ Design Awards, the apartments of 83-85 Stanhill Drive are a phenomenon of architecture, exquisitely embracing the unsurpassed north-facing view over the Gold Coast waterways into the flow, feel and ambience of every beautifully executed room.

Lavish and gorgeous, each expansive apartment is adorned with state of the art, stunning finishes where luxe and functionality are skillfully interwoven. Imported Italian marble surfaces, highest quality fixtures, and cutting edge technologies demonstrate the classic timelessness and permanence of these rare residences. Free-flowing and inviting living spaces open fully to the spectacular view, offering sanctuary and tranquility without compromising on privacy.

Each apartment encompasses an entire private level, and has been conceived and executed with exceeding thoughtfulness and attention to detail, according to the developer’s meticulous standards. Inspired by the northern aspect and unique location, architect Phillip Buchanan created well-connected and functional homes with the spectacular view starring as the main attraction.

Unusually high ceilings and generous living spaces flow out to the expansive balcony terrace with inbuilt barbeque facilities. Folding doors adorn the living, dining and master bedroom north-facing walls, creating a seamless transition between indoor luxury and vast open waterfront living.

Two ample double bedrooms feature generous robe space and an exquisitely appointed private ensuite, fitted with premium quality fixtures and amenities. The master suites are nothing short of total indulgence. Bi-fold doors open onto the waterfront balcony, while custom-designed twin walk in robes provide extensive concealed storage. The jewel of the master ensuites with double vanity is the flawless 5m wall of genuine Italian marble.
