The Far North’s own ‘White House’ is on the market.
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.
