Breathe in the tranquil country air as you drive through the Gold Coast Hinterlands to your own private estate. Rembrae Downs is a classic home that is set in the ‘Hollywood Hills’ of the Gold Coast.
The vision and inspiration of the original home owners was the Wilkes family’s Twelve Oaks plantation home from Gone with the Wind (1939). The estate is surrounded by 20.5 acres of land and is only 150 metres to Coomera River’s waterfront. Pastoral rolling hills of the hinterlands surrounds this residence, but it is also only 10 minutes from the motorway and 25 minutes from the beach.
No detail, grand or small, was overlooked in the design and construction of this home in 1989. Titled “the most iconic home in the Gold Coast” when first built, this grand home is the perfect country getaway. This spacious home comes with expansive formal and casual dining rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows, separate living and entertainment areas, and a stunning gourmet kitchen lined with stunning marble benchtops. The casual dining room is seamlessly integrated with the large entertainment lounge, a 360 degree fireplace, and a bar lined with beautiful warm-toned timbers.
The entertainment lounge is framed with large windows with views of the gorgeous green shrubbery and rolling hills of the hinterlands. Natural light pours in through the large glass panels, affording ample sunlight and brightening up the open spaces. A luxurious circular marble staircase with gold handrails leads you up to second level of the home, where you are greeted with the stunning hinterland views from all ensuite rooms. The three grand ensuite bedrooms also have access to extended outdoor balconies.
Opposite the main home is a self-contained one bedroom caretakers residence, complete with kitchen, living room, laundry and en-suite bathroom. The home also has a heated pool, spa, and gazebo – an ideal set up for inviting friends and family for poolside parties.
This tranquil country home is perfect for large families who need a break from inner-city living. Clear your mind at this hinterland estate.
