Ever been to Mermaid Beach? If so, you’ll know just how just how exciting it would be to own a home this close to all the attractions of the Gold Coast. The latest draw in the yourtown Home Lottery gives you the chance to put your feet up in a $1.8 million home on the waterfront. The three-level residence backs onto the inland Broadbeach waters, just a couple of streets over from Mermaid Beach and minutes from the heart of Surfer’s Paradise.
If you’ve always dreamed of owning your personal piece of paradise, this could well be it. A modern and stylish four-bedroom home with multiple lounge areas, a pool that borders the water, a rooftop patio with expansive views of the ocean, and your own private beach. The design package is really something special, and no expense has been spared in furnishing this luxurious home by the water.
Welcome to Mermaid Waters
The community of Mermaid Waters lies just to the south of Surfer’s Paradise, adjoining neighbouring Broadbeach and within easy reach of all the Gold Coast attractions. It has a population of just over 12,000 residents, many of whom live along the canals and waterways that wind through the suburb and include a 17-hectare fresh water lake. The area took its name from the ship that brought surveyor John Oxley to the beach in the early 1800s, although you can almost imagine that mermaids really do live in the crystal blue waters off the coast.
Pacific Fair, one of the largest shopping centres on the Gold Coast, is just up the road. You’ll also have your pick of fine dining along the Gold Coast Highway as you head towards Surfer’s or down to Miami. Golf courses in the region abound, as do any number of water sports and other recreational facilities. If you’re the lucky winner of draw 477 and moving into your home with a family, you’ll appreciate the range of schools, libraries and amenities that are all conveniently located nearby.
Mermaid Waters is a little quieter than Broadbeach, which gives you a welcome retreat from the action and hype that attracts so many tourists to this world-famous part of the country. As a resident, you can go where you want, when you want, and won’t have to try and take in everything at once. There’s a lifetime of outings, adventures and memorable days ahead, whether you stick to the coast or wander into the hinterland to climb Tamborine Mountain and enjoy the tranquility of your natural surrounds.
Your Home by the Water
The prize home in yourtown draw 477 is two streets in from the ocean and looks over a canal that eventually joins the Nerang River to the north. If you’re approaching by water, you’ll notice the intimate private beach that lies at the foot of a two-tiered back yard that features a lovely al fresco and waterfront swimming pool. The front of the house has great curb appeal, with attractive contemporary architecture and a wood-clad, outward-facing garage.
Inside, you’ll be treated to three levels of luxurious living that’s topped off with a roof deck. From there, you can enjoy panoramic views of the Gold Coast and the Surfer’s Paradise skyline as you fire up the built-in BBQ. The third level also has a games room with a massive wall-mounted entertainment system and its own kitchenette and powder room. Yes, there’s even a foosball table. Drop down a floor and you’ll find four spacious bedrooms, a large shared bath and a cozy media room. The master suite has a snug retreat area, an opulent ensuite and a large walk-in robe. Plenty of privacy and a place for everyone to find their own favourite spot to relax.
The main floor is designed for easy family living and effortless entertaining. There’s both a living room and separate family room, along with an enclosed study with its own ensuite. The dining room opens onto an al fresco that looks over the water for relaxed dining under the stars. The kitchen features a separate butler’s pantry, a full line of low-profile appliances and gleaming white countertops.
This is a gorgeous home in a prime location that will make living the millionaire dream pretty easy to get used to.
