A LUXURY home on South Stradbroke Island designed by Noosa identity Paul Clout and accessible only from the water has changed hands just in time for the summer holidays.
The striking property at 12 Casuarina Ct was marketed by Amir Prestige agent, Sharyn Mainwaring, with offers of more than $2.5m sought.
The sale price has not been disclosed.
Ms Mainwaring said the home on a 724sq m waterfront lot was the only one on the island designed by Mr Clout.
“The location is like nothing else in the world,” Ms Mainwaring said.
“A quick boat trip along the Broadwater and then you enter a sheltered canal set amidst rainforests with about 22km of pristine surf beaches.
“South Stradbroke Island is a holiday gem on the doorstep on the Gold Coast and only about an hour away from Brisbane, and it is also home to a handful of beautiful designer properties,” she said.
The home has three bedrooms and three bathrooms, and was last sold in 2019 for $1.875m, property records show.
Expansive use of glass and natural textures throughout lend a tropical ambience, with stacker doors creating a seamless flow between spacious open-plan living areas and an outdoor deck spanning almost the entire length of sandy canalfront.
The heated pool and spa feature Bisazza glass mosaic tiles with 14kt gold accents, while a hand-sculpted stone wall with a soft waterfall forms a unique focal point.
There’s an outdoor barbecue kitchen with a pizza oven, as well as a fire pit for late-night entertaining.
Back inside, features include a kitchen fitted with high-end appliances as well as a commercial grade cold room and temperature-controlled wine cellar, while downstairs there’s a soundproof cinema, library and games room opening onto another deck surrounded by tropical gardens.
The bedrooms are upstairs, including the main with a parents’ retreat area and balcony.
The home was snapped up after 65 days on the market, which Ms Mainwaring said marked a particularly swift transaction for the island.
