The last winners of the Mater Prize Home lottery became the new owners of a gorgeous residence on Hope Island. If you’re the lucky winner of draw #279, you’ll be able to wave to each other across the water because this one is located on the opposite side of the canal and is just as impressive.
Everything about this home is grandiose, from the huge open-plan living area to the soaring ceilings and impeccable design package. With five spacious bedrooms, you’ll be able to entertain friends or easily accommodate a growing family. Brisbane is less than an hour away, so you can still commute to the city of you’re not yet ready to retire. If a full-on Gold Coast experience sounds appealing, you’ll be minutes from the beach, surrounded by world-class golf courses, and a short drive from the attractions of Surfers Paradise.
This draw comes with a bonus $100,000 in gold bullion, so you’ll have plenty of walking-around money to set yourself up for a millionaire lifestyle. Get a new ride to park in the garage or dock the craft of your choice in your backyard and explore the inland waterway. The Coomera River will take you all the way out to ocean through the spit at the end of Main Beach, and you’ll also be able to travel to Surfers and beyond by boat.
This is the draw for anyone who wants to relax in the lap of luxury, away from the crowds but within a stone’s throw of the best of the Gold Coast.
Easy Living on Hope Island
Owning a home on Hope Island is like living in the heart of an exclusive resort. Everything that attracts visitors to those high-end destinations can be found within minutes of your front door. You’ll be steps away from the Hope Island Marina, the focal point of the Hope Island Resort with gourmet restaurants, bars, and boutique shopping.
If you love to golf, this is going to be a paradise like no other. On your back doorstep, you’ll find The Pines Golf Course, part of the Sanctuary Cove complex. It’s Australia’s only Arnold Palmer signature course, and one of the country’s most challenging. Behind that there’s The Palms, ranked among Australia’s top 50 golf courses. You can also head over to the Hope Island Golf Course across the water, with its 5-star facilities and top-ten ranking. There are dozens of golf courses up and down the Gold Coast, but you’ll be living right in the middle of three of the best.
If golf isn’t your thing, you’ll still have plenty to keep you entertained and loving the good life. Head for the beach for a day of water sports, or into the hinterland for the markets and cafes. Every community offers something special, whether it’s a lovingly brewed craft beer, local musical festival or breath-taking view of the coast. No matter what you’re into, you’ll find it close to home and have a spectacular place to come back to after a day of adventuring.
The Hope Island Estate
The home on the southern fringe of the Sanctuary Pines Resort begins to impress before you even walk through the front door. The residence has a gleaming white exterior with a front facing garage and footprint that’s set nicely back from the street. Spread over two expansive levels, the home has been purpose designed to accentuate the wide-open spaces and stylish elegance that set this residence apart.

There’s also an enclosed media room on the ground floor for all your home-entertainment needs.
Upstairs, there are four more bedrooms including a lavish master suite. It has a huge walk-in robe and an opulent ensuite with a soaking tub and separate shower. There’s also a private balcony off the master bedroom that faces the water for taking in those glorious Gold Coast sunsets. A second family room at the top of the stairs provides another place for the kids to hang out and a third wall-mounted flat-screen television. If you need to do a little work from home, you’ll appreciate the enclose study/home office that’s tucked beside the master suite.
There’s also plenty of outdoor living space in this home, including a lovely al fresco alongside the L-shaped swimming pool. It has a built-in gas BBQ and lots of room to dine beneath the stars or watch the boats go by. The pool itself is nicely decked with room to lounge and sunbathe. The entire lot is professionally landscaped and even has a pocket lawn that separates the property from the water.
