Modern convenience meets historic charm
This mountain retreat is an art deco dream, boasting stained-glass windows, a distinctive facade and sweeping 180-degree views stretching all the way to the ocean
VILLA Margaret on Tamborine Mountain was built in the 1930s to exude the character of the art deco period.
The three-level residence retains many features of its near 90-year history, including stained-glass windows, intricate cornices and crows ash timber flooring.
The current owners bought the 1429sq m property in 2008 and extensively restored it to blend modern conveniences with its historic charm. It’s now used as a luxury short-term holiday retreat.
With 180-degree views to the north, east and south, this mountain retreat provides an elevated vantage point to take in the Gold Coast, Hinterland and ocean.
The commanding double brick and stone facade stands out, as do the stone paths and garden walls. The kitchen is equipped with state-of-the-art conveniences, including a double-sided marble island bench and Italian tiled splashback, multiple wet areas, wall oven and built-in Miele fridge-freezer.
The study on level two has been restored while level three has been expanded and transformed into a luxury master bedroom.
Harcourts Coastal Paradise Point agents Steve Weir and James Weir are marketing the property.
“It’s a unique piece of history for the Gold Coast,” Steve said. “Acquiring this sublime home will ensure you and your family enjoy the serene and sophisticated lifestyle offered by this once-in-a-lifetime property.”
