IT MAY feel like it's a world away but this acreage prop­erty is only a short walk to Robina Town Cen­tre.

That was the idea ac­cord­ing to home­own­ers Jodi and Kris Booth, who bought the block 13 years ago.

“We had moved from Syd­ney to Mer­maid Wa­ters when my hus­band got an itch for acreage liv­ing,” Mrs Booth said. “But I wanted to stay in sub­ur­bia.” The cou­ple said they found the per­fect in-be­tween at Mudgeer­aba’s Jabiru Es­tate.

“From the mo­ment you drive in you feel like you’re in the coun­try­side. It was a win­win sit­u­a­tion for both of us,” the mother-oftwo said. “Our guests who have been liv­ing on the Gold Coast for years al­ways men­tion how pri­vate the es­tate is.”

The fam­ily built the six-bed­room house with Amer­i­can ar­chi­tec­ture in mind.

Mrs Booth said the house was de­signed for en­ter­tain­ing, with enough space to raise her two sons.

“The gar­dens are my favourite part and we did a lot of land­scap­ing to get the prop­erty to feel like a slice of trop­i­cal par­adise in­stead of a farm, ” she said.

Sand­stone and tim­ber floor­ing cre­ate stylish spa­ces while a fire­place adds a touch of lux­ury.
