Living on Hope Island
Hope Island lies at the mouth of the Coomera River and is surrounded by both the waters of the river itself and an extensive network of canals. The prize home in draw 278 lies alongside an inland waterway, conveniently nestled between two world-class resorts. The Hope Island Resort to the south has a marina, a half-Olympic swimming pool, tennis courts and an 18-hole championship course. To the north, Sanctuary Cove offers a similar array of options and has two championship golf courses. If you’re a golfer, you couldn’t pick a better spot to park your clubs.
This is a small, relaxed community of approximately 11,000 residents who enjoy a terrific lifestyle. Hope Island is filled with boutique shops and restaurants, with plenty of entertainment venues and things to do. The deep water mooring facilities attract visitors from around the world, so the locals get the full benefit of top performers and upscale amenities. Most people get around in golf buggies, and you’ll likely go for long periods of time without ever starting the car.
If you do decide to leave your tropical oasis, Surfer’s Paradise and the beaches of the Gold Coast are just down the road. You can head south for a day of surfing, fishing, sunning and people watching along Australia’s world-famous coastline. Hope Island is parallel to Tamborine Mountain, and within minutes you can be deep in the hinterland. Hike up the mountain, stop at the local cafes, and shop at the many farmer’s markets you’ll find along the way.
This home offers resort-style living in a distinctive modern home close to all the amenities and attractions of the Gold Coast. What more could you want?
A Contemporary Gold Coast Treasure
With its clean lines and open-plan design, this home really turns heads. Modular design features give the residence a unique exterior façade and increase the amount of natural light you’ll find inside. From the entryway, you’ll be looking straight into the lap pool through sheets of floor-to-ceiling glazing that encase the lower level. Open, bright, and beautifully laid-out.
The lower level is essentially comprised of one massive living area, seamlessly integrating the kitchen, lounge, dining room and al fresco. The kitchen, in particular, is exceptionally well appointed. All of the low-profile appliances blend into the décor, with a wine cooler built right into the end of the breakfast bar. By leaving the fully retractable rear doors open, the al fresco dining area flows from the kitchen and provides a semi-enclosed outdoor seating area as well as a full dining table. There’s also a BBQ alcove on the al fresco, overlooking the pool and canal beyond. From the pool-side sunbathing terrace, you can descend to a lower deck overhanging the canal and watch the boats go by.
Upstairs, four large bedrooms will accommodate all of your family and guests. The master has a sunroom/lounge with a wall-mounted television, a massive ensuite and a double walk-in robe. The guest suite has its own bathroom, while the two front bedrooms share a private balcony. There’s a centrally located family room at the top of the stairs for quiet reading or gaming on the home entertainment system.
With waterfront views, striking architectural features, an abundance of natural light and an exclusive design package, this stylish home is sure to provide a lifetime of elegant comfort.
