The stretch of homes that lines the coast along Mermaid Beach is called Millionaire’s Row for good reason. These are some of the choicest properties on the Gold Coast, and just two streets away you’ll find the prize home in yourtown draw 477. Its rear faces the waters of the canal system that runs through this laid-back suburb, with its own private beach and multi-level outdoor patios.

One of the home’s most striking features, however, is the third-level deck that looks out onto the Surfer’s Paradise skyline and surrounding countryside. You’ll want to take a good look around because this is what it feels like to live at the top.

A Distinctive Home on the Gold Coast

Beyond Broadbeach lies Mermaid Waters, a quiet community that enjoys the best of the Gold Coast lifestyle just south of the centre of the action. Mermaid Beach is a five-minute walk from the front door of the $1.8 million home on offer in draw 477 — but it’s only one of many stretches of soft white sand that will lure you away from your waterfront swimming pool. If you’re the lucky winner of this modern multi-level residence, all the restaurants, cafes, sporting facilities and attraction of the area will be waiting within easy reach.

The home itself has a contemporary design, built two years ago with a timber and rendered blue board exterior. The back of the property has an al fresco area that leads down to a pool deck and sunbathing platform, all of which is beautifully finished with timbered decking. From there, it’s a short flight of steps to your private beach and the inland waterway.

The ground floor is purpose-built for entertaining, with multiple seating areas and a state-of-the-art kitchen. The butler’s pantry is almost as big as the kitchen itself, with its own cooktop, range hood and sink. Preparing a meal for friends and family won’t be a hardship with an under-bench oven, gas cooktop and other fine appliances. Then there’s the option of dining outside on either the al fresco or rooftop patio, both of which come equipped with a BBQ.

The waterfront villa has four bedrooms featuring a lovely master suite retreat overlooking the water. If you’ve got children or are a big kid yourself, the rumpus room on the third level is sure to be a hit. It’s got a huge mounted television screen, a foosball table, and its own kitchenette and powder room. Fighting over the remote? Try moving to the media room on the second level or the family room on the ground floor. If you need to do a little work from home, there’s even a study with its own ensuite tucked away near the entry.

Everything you could ever want, with a design package that tops $180,000 in a location that can’t be beat. With a ticket in yourtown Home Lottery draw 477, the good life could be just around the corner.
