Christmas shopping might be a whole lot easier this year if you’re browsing the markets and boutique shops on Bribie Island. That’s because you could soon have $10,000 in gold bullion to pay the bills and a spectacular 4-bedroom waterfront home waiting for you at the end of the day. That’s the offering in Surf Life Saving Draw 190, and it looks as good as it sounds.

The prize home is right on the Banksia Beach canal, around the corner from the Pumicestone Passage and your direct route to the waters of Moreton Bay. Whether you’re in a boat, a kayak or clutching your paddle board, you’ll be dodging the dolphins in this slice of ocean paradise.

The fully-loaded luxury home comes with a $158,000 design package that’s elegant, modern and very stylish. Along with the home and gold, you’ll also receive a $7,000 travel voucher along with a $5,000 Harvey Norman gift voucher which should pretty much put the bow on this fantastic Christmas package.

A $1.4 Million Retreat on the Coast

With the drive to Bribie Island being a short hour from Brisbane, Banksia Beach is an exclusive community filled with lovely waterfront homes. The Pumice Passage which separates the island from the mainland is a marine reserve and much of Bribie consists of a vast national park. If you’re looking for tranquility, spectacular scenery and pristine coastal dunes, you’ve come to the right place.

The prize home has an ultra-modern interior design that blends ink black accents with muted greys and midnight blues. Both interior and exterior furnishings are plentiful, comfortable and well matched to the clean lines you’ll find throughout the residence.

With four bedrooms, you won’t be short on guest accommodations and there are several places in the home to relax, retreat and enjoy the good things in life. On the main level there’s an open living area and a separate enclosed media room for watching movies or indulging in a few games. Upstairs, you’ll find the master bedroom with its own comfortable retreat that doubles as a home study. The master suite also has a private balcony with the same view over the water as the well appointed alfresco below.

There’s a lovely inground pool alongside the canal, and a private pontoon where you can keep a boat to explore the Banksia Beach canals, inner passage and wide-open ocean beyond. Wander into town for a latte or find a beach where you may never see another soul. Bribie Island has something for everyone, whether you’re looking for absolute tranquility, friendly neighbours, or the bustle of a vibrant coastal village.
