Beach­front bliss

Step straight on to the sand from your lux­u­ri­ous three-level Surfers Par­adise home

IT’S dubbed the ul­ti­mate Gold Coast beach house and for good rea­son.

“Beach House One” is a three-level res­i­dence that is part of highrise Plat­inum on the Beach but sits to the side of the build­ing.

With its own en­try, plunge pool, me­dia room, fea­ture stair­case, rooftop ter­race and direct beach ac­cess, it stands out for its up­mar­ket vibe and ex­clu­siv­ity.

The res­i­dence fea­tures ocean views from all lev­els as well as a vista of the Surfers Par­adise sky­line.

Busi­ness en­trepreneur Louis Zenonos bought the prop­erty in 2008. “It’s very unique in that it’s a beach house in the mid­dle of all the ac­tion,” he said. “It’s ir­re­place­able.”

Mr Zenonos, who di­vides his time be­tween Syd­ney and the Gold Coast, said the beach­front lo­ca­tion was what ini­tially sparked his in­ter­est.

“I love be­ing out in the back­yard and lis­ten­ing to the ocean,” he said.

The 587sq m home has a con­tem­po­rary style with tim­bers, mar­ble, blue-tinted win­dows and Euro­pean ap­pli­ances.

There are four bed­rooms, three bath­rooms and space for three cars.

“You’ve got your own garage so you walk straight into the house from the garage, take a flight of stairs up and you’re in the liv­ing, din­ing and lounge ar­eas and you and walk straight out to the back­yard which is the beach,” he said.

“There’s a flight of stairs up and then you’ve got the bed­rooms and the study. You’ve also got the rooftop deck which is wait­ing for some­one to come along and do some­thing spe­cial to it.”

Mr Zenonos said the prop­erty had even been home to sev­eral Hol­ly­wood stars over the years in­clud­ing Ger­ard But­tler.

“It’s very pri­vate and that’s what they liked about it,” he said.

Mr Zenonos, who is cur­rently build­ing lux­ury apart­ments at Main Beach, said the home would suit a range of buy­ers.

“It’s a hol­i­day house or full-time seachange,” he said. “It will be very hard to re­place be­cause it feels like a house on the beach. But it’s just time for me to move on.”

Har­courts Coastal agent Tolemy Stevens is mar­ket­ing the prop­erty and said it was one of the most ex­clu­sive beach houses on the Gold Coast.

“Cre­ated to sur­pass all other beach­front liv­ing op­tions and home to just a hand­ful of for­tu­nate and dis­cern­ing own­ers, this is a rarely avail­able op­por­tu­nity to ac­quire an ocean­front home un­like any other,” Mr Stevens said.

The tightly-held res­i­den­tial-only Plat­inum on the Beach has 14 res­i­dences and an on-site man­ager.

Res­i­dent fa­cil­i­ties in­clude an out­door heated pool, spa, saunas, gym­na­sium, bar­be­cue area and cin­ema.

It is in walk­ing dis­tance to pa­trolled surf beachs and North­cliffe Surf Life Sav­ing Club.
