IF you want to be able to swim all year round then this sprawling Hamptons-inspired mansion is the property for you.
The two-storey waterfront house at 5 Julatten Drive, Robina, comes with a luxury indoor heated pool and spa, completely protected from all weather elements.
Vendor Nicole Marino and her husband Ben said the indoor pool had been great for their four daughters — Chelsea, 8, Georgie, 5, Leila, 3, and Sienna, 3.
“Because it is heated they have been able to swim all year round, day or night and we don’t have to worry about the harsh Gold Coast sun either,” she said.
“It’s a nice bright and breezy room so we’ll quite often relax in there while the kids have an afternoon swim.”
The back deck was another favourite feature with more than 40m of water frontage.
“We enjoy entertaining guests on the expansive deck out the back,” Ms Marino said.
“It gets a great afternoon breeze there and it’s quite relaxing enjoying a couple of drinks overlooking the water.”
From the front, the house stands out with its white facade paired with charcoal roof, palm trees and manicured gardens.
“Although the house has quite a presence in the street, I really love the fact that once you are inside it offers complete privacy from the outside world,” she said.
As soon as you step inside, the grand double staircase takes centre stage with open plan living centred around a void.
There are four bedrooms, four bathrooms, open plan living and a suspended slab on all upper levels.
Ms Marino said the house was perfectly positioned to experience all that the Gold Coast had to offer.
“Robina Island offers an exclusive family orientated community with several parks and water access within short walking distance, while the home itself feels like a hidden retreat, offering complete privacy from the outside world,” she said.
Renee Morgan of Queensland Sotheby’s International Realty is taking the 1450sq m property to auction next month and said the house offered a unique opportunity for prospective buyers.
“While the market is becoming uncertain in some of the major cities around Australia, the Gold Coast remains a great investment for interstate buyers as well as locals, and Robina Island in particular has received record prices in recent months,” Ms Morgan said.
