Rare main river elegance
September 6 2021
This waterfront family residence at 2 Wildash Street, Southport combines elegance and sophistication on one of the most highly sought-after Main River locations on the Gold Coast.
Looking out across the expansive Main River where the afternoon sun sparkles on the distant high-rises and reflects on the water – it’s easy to see why this luxury space is in high demand.
Beyond the calming water and magnificent views, it also boasts a 33.7-metre river frontage with one of the largest-sized pontoons in the area – expansive enough to accommodate an 80-foot cruiser.
The property itself is designed to encapsulate the sublime waterfront views from most rooms. The entire structure of the home is built to provide a luxurious and comfortable respite for families.
It’s also one of only eleven tightly-held riverfront homes located within the coveted Southport School (TSS) and St Hilda’s School precinct.
“The pocket of Winchester Street, McMillan Court and Wildash Street is one of the most highly sought-after and significantly held riverfront enclaves on the Gold Coast and these very rarely become available,” says marketing agent Michael Kollosche.
The last home sold in this precinct was 5 McMillan Court in March for $23,750,000 and Michael confirms that most homes in the area start from $10-15,000,000 with a number in the $25-30,000,000 range.
“We expect that this type of property will attract the TSS and St Hilda’s families and buyers coming from Sydney and Melbourne. With a 33.7 metre river frontage, a very large pontoon for a prestige boat and prime east- facing waterfront views, this property is going to be highly revered,” says Michael.
The three-level property combines sophisticated living areas and aesthetically pleasing open spaces with an imposing design accentuated by soaring ceilings, grand columns, curved walls and a long list of lifestyle features.
Whether entertaining by the generous alfresco deck by sunset or relaxing by the heated 20-metre lap pool on the timber jetty, guests will love the choice of aspects to relax.
By nightfall as the temperature drops, there are plenty of options for entertaining. Whether by the fire pit on the deck, the open fireplace in the lounge area or downstairs in the magnificent basement, you’ll be spoilt for choices.
This architecturally-designed home is a full concrete build covering over 1,099m2 of expansive internal area, and the downstairs basement fitted with a stellar wine cellar and tasting room offers a change of pace from the riverfront entertaining.
Families will revel in the location as Wildash is a family-friendly street and only minutes to the popular foodie haven of Ferry Road Markets, where you can sample arguably the Gold Coast’s best selection of local and imported antipasti and dips, charcuterie, olives, dairy, cheeses and more.
Just down the road, the newly developed HOTA precinct offers the latest art exhibitions, arthouse films and live events, and there are plenty of natural parklands nearby for those seeking a slice of greenery.
This property promises to take complete care of its residents, from rest to entertainment, for many years to come in one of the most coveted and highly esteemed areas on the Gold Coast.
