When Lifestyle and Size Really Does Matter
August 24 2022
The population on the Gold Coast is burgeoning with iconic Burleigh Heads at the top of many buyers’ wishlists, but finding a home on a sizeable block is becoming increasingly difficult.
That’s part of the reason why 10-12 Elanora Drive in the suburb’s exclusive Koala Park precinct has been creating such a stir since it hit the market last Saturday.
The owners have amalgamated two adjoining blocks to create one super lot spanning 1286m2.
Properties of this size are scarce across the Coast, let alone in such a sought-after waterfront position with enviable views to Tallebudgera Creek.
Sales agent Troy Dowker describes the blue-chip property as a rare offering and a true trophy home for the area.
“You may occasionally find a double block on the beachfront, say, somewhere like Jefferson Lane or Hedges Avenue, but to find one on the waterfront in this location is a one-off,” he says.
To raise the property’s credentials even further, the owners commissioned renowned architect Bayden Goddard to design a functional family home inspired by the surrounding beach and bush.
Offering more than 790m2 of under-roof living space, “the sheer scale of the property means the house is ideally suited to families,” Troy says.
Taking up the majority of the block and rising two storeys, there are plenty of places to find solitude across the home’s five oversized bedrooms and multiple living spaces, which are spread across both levels.
A generous recreation room, gym, sauna, mudroom, and two office spaces complete the internal spaces, while outside there is a further 196m2 to enjoy.
Large covered patios are the perfect spot for taking advantage of the home’s super private and serene setting where 38m of water frontage overlooks a tranquil tributary just off Tallebudgera Creek. The design of the pool, suitable for laps or leisure, emulates the flow of the creek in its smooth curves.
Residents can walk, cycle or take a short two-minute drive to the central James Street shopping and restaurant hub of Burleigh Heads, but there is little need to leave the bounds of this sprawling home to enjoy a coastal lifestyle.
“Time-poor people who like to stay active can work out in the gym, before knocking out 1km in the pool before work,” says Troy.
“Where else can you do that from the comfort of your own home? Alternatively, you can put a boat in the water to cruise Tallebudgera Creek or go stand-up paddleboarding. There are so many lifestyle options on offer here.”
It hasn’t taken long for the market to see the potential of this standout property, which is nestled at the foot of Burleigh Headland against the natural backdrop of Burleigh Heads National Park and the calm water of family-favourite, Tallebudgera Creek.
Troy and his team fielded almost 40 enquiries within the first 48 hours of the property hitting the market, with the home’s unique attributes attracting a mix of local and interstate buyers.
