An architecturally designed house-sized villa that backs directly onto one of Australia’s most iconic coastlines has hit the market in Queensland.
The ultra beachfront position has been enhanced via extensive use of glass, which was – most importantly – utilised for the property fencing, highlighting how there is nothing between the living room and golden sands of Mermaid Beach.
The listing labels the modern trophy home as “the pinnacle of low maintenance, absolute beachfront luxury.”

Sitting on a rare corner block on “one of the most prestigious streets in the country, Albatross Ave,” what the lot lacks in
land size it makes up for in living space, which spans three levels and 703 square metres.
While there is no price guide, the spectacular pad was last sold for $10 million in 2008, with the current owners holding onto the property for over 14 years, according to Domain Pricefinder data.
The private backyard, of course, boasts a 12.4m ocean frontage and is the perfect place to fire up the integrated pizza oven.
But this isn’t a case of the view being the best thing about the
home – there is a lot on offer inside, like a cinema room and sprawling lounge with custom-built bar that spills onto an alfresco terrace.
Interiors-wise, the open-plan
design aesthetic is bang on for the location and calibre of the home, being relaxed, yet refined while still offering some character.
This is seen in the kitchen with its charming yet elegant blend of coloured tile work, marble bench tops, European appliances and walk-in pantry.
There are four bedrooms, with three located upstairs as well as five bathrooms in the residence. The master suite enjoys sweeping ocean vistas from its own private balcony.

The fourth bedroom, executive office and bathroom are found downstairs, and the clever design even factors in a four-car basement garage with turntable.
With no amenity lacking, the
luxury pad also includes a gym, mosaic-tiled steam room, spa and 21-metre lap pool on the northern side of the property.
Automated blinds, CBUS lighting, Sonos throughout and intercom complete the picture. There’s also a back to base alarm.
The home is located just 90 metres from renowned BSKT cafe and 300m from bustling Nobby Beach restaurants and shops.

“This is a prized lifestyle many covet, and few achieve,” says Tolemy Stevens of Harcourts Coastal Prestige, who exclusively holds the listing.
The expression of interest campaign closes 4pm, 28 July 2022 “if not sold prior”.
