Beachfront property can mean a lot of things, and more often than not involves crossing a busy road, peering around neighbours to catch a glimpse of the ocean, or walking a considerable distance to find an access point. Not this time. The RSL Art Union Prize Home Lottery draw #349 is offering a house that is exactly as described – ON THE BEACH.

This is the home you usually only find in books or movies, where the star steps out the door and into the surf. It was purpose built by the RSL on a lot that backs directly onto Palm Beach, making this sandy stretch of paradise your very own backyard.

The home is a four-bedroom, three level architectural masterpiece that capitalizes on its spectacular location. From the roof top terrace, you can see the skyline of Surfers Paradise to the north, and gaze down the length of Coolangatta Beach to the south. In front of you, there’s nothing but sand, surf and sky.

It’s a $4 million-dollar view, and you could be waking up to it each morning if you’re the lucky winner of this one-of-a-kind prize home.

Queensland’s Cleanest Beach

Given the number of visitors to the Gold Coast every year, it’s not surprising to find that some beaches can get a little worse for wear. Palm Beach, however, holds the distinction of having won the award for cleanest beach in the State three separate times. That gives you some idea of the type of neighbourhood you’ll be moving to, and what you can expect to find when you get there.

Palm Beach is at the southern end of the Coast, a pristine stretch of white sand that runs from Burleigh Head to Currumbin on the border with New South Wales. The home is situated on a street that runs parallel to the beach and on which every house is valued in the seven-figure range. 167 Jefferson Lane is about halfway between Tallebudgera Creek and Currumbin Creek, the two bodies of water that mark the boundaries of Palm beach.

The area was filled with little “shacks” long before it became a Gold Coast sub-division, and a few still remain among the multi-million-dollar houses that now line the shore. Even these are priced far beyond the range of most home buyers, and property values continue to climb. The neighbourhood is exclusive, safe, and incredibly well serviced.

The beach itself is patrolled by two separate Surf Clubs, and another looks after the Tallebudgera Creek estuary. You can walk for miles along the shore, with a national park waiting at one end and the neighbouring suburb of Currumbin at the other. That is, if you can ever pull yourself away from your rooftop.

Highlights of the $4 Million RSL Prize Home

The field of architecture has come a long way since Jefferson Lane was lined with beach huts and the RSL has taken advantage of the very latest design features in the construction of this new home. The towering ceilings, neutral colours and modern fixtures combine to provide an open, unrestricted environment that blends beautifully with the wide-open space before you.

This home is charming, tasteful, refined and welcoming. The best of all possible worlds whether you’re entertaining a crowd or having a quiet drink on the balcony and contemplating the waves.

A Gold Coast Lifestyle

The Gold Coast is visited by millions of tourists every year and it’s not hard to see why. It provides an eclectic mix of surf culture, natural wonders, historic sites and world-class entertainment. While officially a city, the Gold Coast feels more like a string of interconnected communities which begin to the south of Brisbane and stretch down to the border with New South Wales.

The QI building in Surfers Paradise can be seen for miles and this residential complex is the tallest building in the country. Surfers has been consistently voted among the best beaches in the world by numerous travel publications and is beloved by Australians and international visitors alike. It is only one of the many renown beaches along the Gold Coast, however, which boasts some 70 kilometres of sandy coastline.

Away from the surf, there’s a banquet of entertainment with something of interest for everyone. The region is packed with theme parks, most of which centre on a marine theme. There are also numerous nature reserves and animal parks which showcase Australian wildlife. Sporting events also abound, and beyond the surfing you’ll find international auto racing, football, triathlons and marathons.

If you can’t find anything to do on the Gold Coast, you’re either asleep or underground.
