Perched in a private cul-de-sac on the water’s edge, this Mediterranean-inspired home is just a stone’s throw from the heart of bustling Surfers Paradise. Natural light streams into the home through the abundant windows that reach as high as the lofty ceilings. Gorgeous hardwood graces the floors, with long timber pieces seeming to run the length of the home. The wash of peachy-cream paint is a departure from the stark whites that dominate new builds. Paired with the rich honey-coloured timber floors, these elements bring homey warmth to the space. Intricate details are what make this home special. Delicate cornices and intricate details add character to the home, where other modern homes can pale in comparison.
The embellished kitchen conjures visions of ancient civilizations. Ornate pillars hold the island-bench sturdy, while the timber bench-top gleams under the twinkling down-lights. Intricate details adorn the kitchen, like the wainscoting on not only cabinets but also the island bench. Perched under a window with stunning waterfront views is the kitchen sink, making washing up far less arduous. Timber bi-fold doors lead from the kitchen onto the patio which wraps around the home. The deck beckons for hours spent lounging poolside, and long lunches overlooking the sparkling canal.
An elegant staircase with intricate wrought-iron stokes guides the way upstairs, where five spacious bedrooms reside. More windows than walls, the master bedroom is privy to glorious sweeping views. Stepping onto the private balcony, the sprawling views the ocean below are accompanied by city glimpses. Arguably the most sumptuous space in the home is the master bathroom. A double vanity sits below a wall-length mirror, complete with matching taps as seen in the kitchen. A double shower is illuminated by natural light that floods through the open windows. Most impressive, the spa-bath oozed luxury, awaiting strawberries and bubbles in the evening.
