YOU know you’re liv­ing in par­adise when the lo­cals are dolphins, dugongs and tur­tles.

Sue and Willem Feen­stra fell in love with their prop­erty’s lo­ca­tion be­fore com­mis­sion­ing David Radic to build a two­s­torey oa­sis. The 726sq m land has 30m of deep­wa­ter frontage and is on a point.

“The block of land is just beau­ti­ful as it has Broad­wa­ter views plus views up to Mt Tam­borine, so we watch the sun rise and set,” Ms Feen­stra said. “It’s just so peace­ful and lovely.”

The cou­ple were al­ready liv­ing on the is­land when the land, on one of Queens­land’s most ex­clu­sive streets, be­came avail­able to the mar­ket.

“We get dolphins and even dugong here com­ing through look­ing for food,” she said.

“A sea tur­tle lives near our pon­toon and pops up to say hi ev­ery few days.”

Con­struc­tion of the four-bed­room stone and tim­ber house took around a year.

Span­ning the rear of the prop­erty is also a heated pool and spa, and cov­ered en­ter­tain­ing ter­race and deck.

Find your in­ner Zen in the yoga room which over­looks the pool and has in­fra-red heat pads on the ceil­ing to in­crease sweat levels dur­ing a class.

The kitchen has Bosch ap­pli­ances, two self-clean­ing ovens, a built-in fridge and freezer, three dish­wash­ers, a wine fridge and but­ler’s pantry.
