VIEWS of sweep­ing golden sand, colour­ful beach um­brel­las and a blue ocean cre­ate a pic­ture-per­fect out­look on the 18th floor of the Re­flec­tions on the Sea tower.

Mark Doyle, who bought the aparment at 1802/120 Marine Pde in 2012 to share with his three chil­dren, de­scribed the views as sat­u­rat­ing. “I moved from Mel­bourne years ago to Talle­budgera and over time I just wanted to get fur­ther south where the beaches are the most beau­ti­ful,” he said.

“When we lived in Mel­bourne our fam­ily came to Coolan­gatta for hol­i­days.

“I think what re­ally pushed me over the line to buy here was the beach.”

Mr Doyle, who works in Tu­gun, says the beaches are rated among the best and he soaks up the view ev­ery morn­ing on the bal­cony with a cup of cof­fee.

“It is a great way to start the day,” the fa­therof-three said. “I love to surf when I get time.”

Built in 2005, the unit has a con­tem­po­rary style, which Mr Doyle said was func­tional for his chil­dren. “I had Coco Re­pub­lic style the home,” he said. “I have twin girls and a son who are all in univer­sity now and they are do­ing their own thing and don’t spend too much time at home. “The home has be­come too big for me.” Mr Boyle said he planned to find a smaller place in the same area.

The apart­ment has a so­phis­ti­cated sense of style with sun-washed in­te­ri­ors and brown leather so­fas. In the kitchen, gran­ite bench­tops cre­ate a lux­ury space over­look­ing the ocean.

Mr Doyle said he spent more than $100,000 fit­ting the unit to make it feel like home.

“The floors were car­pet when we moved in but I changed it to tim­ber,” he said. “It is a very con­tem­po­rary style.”

Mr Doyle has since put in au­to­matic blinds, stylish wall­pa­per and lights.

With three en­suited bed­rooms, the apart­ment also has three broad bal­conies, which Mr Doyle said were used of­ten for din­ners.

The home will go un­der the ham­mer on Fe­bru­ary 15 at 11am in the Har­courts of­fice, at 16 Queens­land Ave, Broad­beach.
