THIS sky-home takes lux­ury to new heights.

Wel­come to the Sen­tinel on the River pen­t­house – four lev­els of grandeur in the Surfers Par­adise river­side vil­lage of Budds Beach.

Home­owner Ann Fore­man was ini­tially drawn to the out­look when she bought the three-bed­room res­i­dence in 2011.

The house-like res­i­dence has three en­suited bed­rooms, a home theatre, bar, of­fice, gym and bal­conies on ev­ery level.
