This Private Gold Coast Island Could Be Yours
November 21 2022
If you have ever dreamed of owning an exclusive island and transforming it into your very own slice of paradise, this could be your chance.
One of only nine freehold islands in Queensland, Foxwell Island on the Gold Coast offers 10.12ha of secure and vacant land within the Coomera River and presents a rare blank canvas for someone to become inspired.
Take a lead from Richard Branson, who transformed Makepeace Island near Noosa on the Sunshine Coast into an exclusive private holiday destination, which well-heeled guests book out months in advance to the tune of $22,000 a night.
On Foxwell you could build a grand two-storey home or explore, subject to council approval, a venture in nature-based tourism, sport and recreation, agriculture, or the marine industry.
“Privacy, seclusion and space are the ultimate luxury in today’s world,” says Marco. “You could develop this for yourself or create something special that puts Foxwell on the map.”
Nestled between Hope Island and the Coomera mainland, Foxwell takes in sensational 360-degree views of the Gold Coast waterways and hinterland. The island is mostly level, with 2.19ha ready for development.
Although Foxwell is currently only accessible from the water or air, the building of a jetty, pontoon or boat ramp would allow bridge-free access to the Gold Coast Seaway.
Foxwell Island formed part of an acquisition by Stockland to develop what is now known as the master planned community of Foreshore Coomera.
The development now complete, Foxwell is surplus to its requirements, presenting a potential buyer with a unique opportunity.
“The island’s proximity to the Foreshore Coomera, as well as Stockland’s Delta Hope Island master planned community under construction, means that a new owner will have an even greater stretch of amenity on their doorstep,” says Marco.
“Foreshore Coomera has 51 hectares of conservation area, three parks and kilometres of walking and bike trails, while Hope Island Delta will provide access to world-class golf at three 18-hole courses as well as retail and transport options.
“Foxwell is already only 150m from the renowned Gold Coast Marina and Shipyard, while the cafes and restaurants of Hope Island Resort are a short boat ride away.”
