It’s simply perfection
This breathtaking Paradise Waters riverfront mansion ticks all the luxury boxes with an indoor pool, huge outdoor terrace and pontoon
IT’S hard for Toni Ferguson to choose just one favourite feature in her sprawling Paradise Waters riverfront mansion.
“It’s so difficult to narrow it down as each area has something special,” she said.
“It is the epitome of a beautiful family home and such a liveable home.”
Ms Ferguson and her husband pub baron Tony Burnett bought their five-bedroom house at 22-24 Admiralty Drive in 2011 after moving back to Paradise Waters from Sanctuary Cove.
“Realising Sanctuary Cove was a bit far away for us, we started looking to relocate back closer to the children’s schools,” she said. “Having always admired this home, we were excited when it came on the market and being able to purchase was absolutely thrilling for all of us.”
The house is on a 1351sq m block and has a 12m indoor pool, marble-tiled ensuites, cinema, library games room, boathouse and 24m pontoon among its luxury features.
“The outdoor waterfront terrace is where we entertain regularly and spend almost every weekend lounging around taking in the view and spending time with family and friends,” she said. “We renovated the area last year extending our roof right out to completely cover the entire terrace, which has effectively given us another fully undercover dining and lounge space.”
Other standout features, according to Ms Ferguson, include the central grassed area with its poinciana tree, the kitchen with its butler’s pantry and the his and her ensuites in the master bedroom. “Mine has a steam room and shower plus a bath so it’s like a little spa retreat spending time in there,” she said.
The mother-of-two said the family had plenty of memories including her and Mr Burnett’s 2015 wedding on the property. “I arrived on our boat and we were married on our pontoon before partying the night away with 120 family and friends,” she said. “Life is about creating memories and we have certainly created the most special memories in this home which we will cherish forever.”
