This lavish estate on the Nerang river features classic architecture and is rich in style. Situated in an established suburb, the property sits on a 3,442 square metre block in the heart of the Gold Coast. The estate, titled ‘Alston’, was designed by acclaimed architect Michael Witty. The combination of a modern and vintage style exterior sets 5 McMillian Court apart from local properties. The house is surrounded by fruit trees and landscaped gardens to add to the privacy of the house.

The first floor of this elegant property begins with the foyer: an impressive room with two grand staircases, leading to the second floor and the luxurious, glass chandelier overhanging parquetry flooring. The property boasts several areas for entertaining such as a family room, marble bars, a sitting area, kitchenette, a wine room, and an outdoor entertaining area. The building also has rooms for entertainment such as a billiards room, a two-level library, water fountains, and a classic-style home cinema. With elegance in mind, the gourmet kitchen has Gaggenau appliances, a cold room, and a butler’s pantry.

The property has six bedrooms each with an ensuite and built-in-robes. The basement level bedroom has these features as well as a kitchen and living room, and a private entryway, suitable for staff. The master suite includes a spa ensuite, an impressive dressing room, fireplace, and two terraces, stretching across the southern wing. There are beautiful panoramic views of the city across the three stories of the building and its balconies, however, the top floor has arguably the best view. The top floor is home to a 360-degree viewing platform that has a spectacular view of the Gold Coast skyline.

5 McMillian Court has access to the river with a private pontoon and jetty, and a personal sandy beach at the edge of the garden. Thanks to the central position of the property, it is close to several local beaches, private schools and the shopping village, Marina Mirage.

For those looking for a lifestyle of elegance, the property has an indoor, heated pool and spa, a gym, and a sauna as well as a porte-cochere for guests to be dropped off at. It can house six cars in the property’s basement garage and there is a private study for those working from home. All of the floors are accessible via a lift system, adding a modern element amongst the heritage style of the property.
