If you love the beaches of the Gold Coast but yearn for a private retreat in the hills, yourtown’s first draw of 2019 has you covered. The prize home is a one-of-a-kind showpiece that was purpose built for the lottery, beautifully designed to blend with the natural environment. It features a grand living area that brings the beauty of the hinterland right into the home with incredible floor to ceiling glass walls, rich timbered and stone highlights, and what may be the most understated gourmet kitchen you’ve ever seen.

The property come with 2.3 acres of prime land that borders Tallebudgera Creek. That means you’ll enjoy both privacy and absolute peace and quiet. If you ever feel like returning to civilization, Palm Beach is less than fifteen minutes away and It’s only another ten or so to Surfers Paradise. Pick and choose among the delights of the Gold Coast before returning to your sanctuary at Tallebudgera Valley.

The Unique Home in the Hinterland

yourtown has gone all out with their first prize home of 2019. The exterior is unmistakeably modern, but still blends in with the surrounding rainforest and view of the hills. The approach covers a long drive with gated access, putting the home at a distance from both its neighbours and the Tallebudgera Creek Road. The rear of the property looks onto the hinterland and abuts the creek.

Given the wonderful location, it’s not surprising that this home puts the emphasis on luxurious outdoor living. There’s a shaded exterior dining room off the central living area and another open alfresco at pool level. A walkway spans the rear of the home, leading to the master bedroom and passing a lovely inset wooden deck with a skylight. There’s also a sunbathing deck by the swimming pool and almost every room in the home has immediate access to the outdoors.

The interior décor is a masterful blend of natural wood, stone and glass. Both the master ensuite and kitchen provide a dramatic departure from the predominantly white walls. The kitchen has muted grey countertops and cupboards while the master ensuite takes a black and white motif to a whole new level of elegance.

In all, the home has four bedrooms, with another ensuite off the principal guest room. In addition to the huge wall-mounted television in the lounge, there’s a dedicated media room with plenty of room for everyone to enjoy a night at the movies. An enclosed study will give you somewhere to do a little work or can be easily converted to some other purpose if you’re lucky enough to call this your retirement home.
