MIS­SION Beach has its very own ‘White House’, but there are no US flags fly­ing here.

The ul­ti­mate pala­tial beach­front home — which fetches $890 a night as an ex­ec­u­tive hol­i­day rental — is on the mar­ket for $3.25 mil­lion.

Bris­bane-based sales as­so­ciate Si­mon Cowan said the dis­tinc­tive prop­erty was cre­ated by award­win­ning Sun­shine Coast de­signer Stephen Kidd in 2008.

“(Mr Kidd) was con­tracted to de­sign the home and over­saw its build,” Mr Cowan said.

“I be­lieve that it took ap­prox­i­mately one year and a half to build.”

A cou­ple who now own the home pur­chased it in 2006 for $1,175,000 and use it as their hol­i­day home when it is not let to hol­i­day-mak­ers.

“The home’s two lev­els cul­mi­nate in dra­matic skil­lion roof lines that soar above the broad ve­ran­das and their can­tilevered col­umns, so that the whole struc­ture seems to float ef­fort­lessly in its lush gar­den set­ting,” Mr Cowan ex­plained.

“Ex­pan­sive open spa­ces flow eas­ily through­out (and) the all­white theme is off­set by lus­trous black­butt tim­ber floors.”

Mr Cowan said the prop­erty’s po­si­tion on Pa­cific Pa­rade with views to the Co­ral Sea, and the con­tem­po­rary trop­i­cal de­sign, were the stand­out fea­tures of the prop­erty.

The house looks out to Dunk, Bedarra and Hinch­in­brook is­lands.

With its multi-mil­lion dol­lar price tag, the man­sion comes with five bed­rooms, four bath­rooms fea­tur­ing Ital­ian lime­stone, a quartz stone kitchen with Meile ap­pli­ances and two ovens, an open-plan liv­ing and din­ing area which flows to the out­doors and a 810sq m land area.
