One of the hardest decisions home lottery winners have to make is whether to keep their windfall or rent it out as an investment and enjoy a very handy second income. With the latest draw from the RSL, you won’t have to make that hard choice. Draw 367 is offering up TWO villas in Mermaid Waters, meaning you can keep one and still have an annual return from the second. The total prize package is worth $3.7 million and if you rent out both properties, you can expect to receive a whopping $156,000 a year!
What would you do with that kind of extra income? The possibilities are endless, from paying down your existing mortgage to taking an early retirement, traveling the world or simply enjoying a luxurious lifestyle without financial worries. If you’ve always wanted a home on the Gold Coast, you can keep one of the properties for yourself and still have enough coming in from the other one to pay all the expenses plus a few terrific extras every year. Be sure to get in early for your chance to be a double winner this July.
Living in Mermaid Waters
The two prize villas are located side by side in Mermaid Waters, an exclusive Gold Coast community located just ten minutes south of Surfers Paradise. The town is named after the ship that carried John Oxley to the area in 1823 to create a survey of the coast, and currently has a population of just over 12,000 residents. The back of the twin properties is on the inland waterway that winds north through Broadbeach Waters and enters the ocean past Main Beach. Mermaid Beach is minutes away, extending for two kilometres between Broadbeach and Miami. Its patrolled by the Mermaid Beach Surf Club and is a great place to swim, surf and grab a bite to eat in one of the many restaurants that line the shore.
If you love a spot of shopping, the Pacific Fair Shopping Center is just down the road. It was once Queensland’s biggest regional shopping mall and has over 400 specialty stores, so you’ll be able to find everything you need right on your doorstep. Walking south, you’ll come to Pizzey Park where you’ll find one of the best off-leash dog parks on the coast, tons of sporting facilities and a skate park.
All of the attractions of the Gold Coast are within a short drive of the two centrally located villas. You’ll have your pick of golf courses, water sports, and amusement parks, with the nightlife of Surfers beckoning at the end of the day. Head into the hinterland for a taste of the rainforest or find your favourite patch of sand and throw down a towel. With a home in Mermaid Waters, you’ll be living the millionaire lifestyle you’ve always dreamed of where each day promises a new activity-filled adventure.
Your Two Homes on the Gold Coast
The two villas are mirror images of each other and back onto a beautiful canal with views of the Surfers Paradise skyline. They’re a new build with a contemporary exterior that rises three floors to provide unique rooftop entertainment areas. Each has a swimming pool and private pontoon so that you can keep a boat tied right in your own backyard.
The ground floor entryway opens into a foyer that’s flanked by a large bedroom with its own ensuite. This is the perfect guest suite, with plenty of privacy at a distance from the other bedrooms. Beyond the stairs leading up to the second level, the main living area extends seamlessly onto the alfresco. The living room comes first, followed by a dining room that seats eight and a sleek gourmet kitchen with a fully equipped scullery. A small patio off the dining area has comfortable outdoor seating while the expansive alfresco has a full dining table and BBQ. It looks over the pool which features a timbered sunbathing deck with a ramp leading down to the pontoon.
The second level holds three bedrooms including a master that looks onto the canal. It has a large ensuite with a soaking tub and walk-in shower along with a separate dressing room. The other two bedrooms share a full bath, and there’s even a study at the front of the home.
The third level is all about fun with a cozy media room that comes complete with a wet bar, wine fridges and a large flat screen for movie nights. The rooftop terrace looks out onto the water with a casual dining table and plenty of room to sit and admire the view.
Each home has been styled with over $138K worth of furnishings and electricals with a neutral décor highlighting beautiful timbered flooring, blue/grey accents, and a host of high-end fixtures and appliances.
