Vacationing in a five-star resort always leaves you feeling pampered, relaxed and ready to face the world again. What if you could recapture that feeling at home? The latest draw from the Mater Prize Home Lottery could help you do just that, with a $1.8 million home on Bribie Island that brings you the absolute best of resort-style luxury.

This home will make you feel like a star, from the soaring ceilings to the outdoor pavilions and waterfront lap pool. It’s a brand new 4-bedroom residence that backs onto Dux Creek and the Pumicestone Passage. You’ll find everything you need in the communities of Bellara and Banksia Beach, but if you want to explore the entire Sunshine Coast, the bridge to the mainland is only minutes away.

Tranquility, comfort, and all the amenities of a classy resort – right on your own property. Now that’s a possibility worth exploring!

A $1.8 Million Lifestyle

The bridge to Bribie Island opened in 1963 but it remains a largely uninhabited natural sanctuary. Visitors come to walk in the National Park or along the miles of deserted white sand beaches that fringe the island. It’s an oasis for birds, a small herd of Brumbies, kangaroos, wallabies and other native animals. The Pumicestone Passage that separates the island from the mainland is home to a rare population of Dugongs, Humpback and bottle-nose dolphins, Green turtles and Loggerheads. Bribie is the smallest of the three major sand islands in Moreton Bay, and the only one you don’t need a boat to get to.

The small resident population is clustered at the southern end of the island, and that’s where you’ll find the incredible prize home. If you keep a boat tied to your private pontoon, you can wander through the canals to the Passage that will take you all the way to Caloundra. It’s going to be hard to leave the property, however, when there’s so much to see and do at home.

If you’re a movie fan, the home theatre is everything you’ve always wanted. Theatre seating for seven and a huge screen that will put you right in the heart of the action. When it’s time to get a little fresh air, you’ve got your choice of lounging in the courtyard, relaxing in the outdoor living pavilion, or stretching out by the pool. The dining pavilion provides a sheltered al fresco with a view of the water, or you could eat indoors in your beautifully appointed kitchen/dining/living room.

If the kids are getting rowdy or your guests need a little alone-time, there’s a second lounge on the upper floor with a wall-mounted TV and lots of comfortable seating. You’ll also have all the space you need if you have to do some work, with both a ground floor home office and an upstairs study nook. Enjoy a nightcap on master suite balcony as you look over the water and raise a toast to another perfect day.

Features of Your Waterfront Home

The design features of this resort-style home are truly exceptional. The second level is divided by a large opening, linked by a gallery that provides views of the floor below. This gives the home soaring ceilings and an abundance of natural light, complemented by a light décor and floor to ceiling glazing.
