IT may look like a stan­dard fam­ily home from the street but be­hind closed doors, this He­lensvale prop­erty is like a hol­i­day re­sort.

A trop­i­cal-style pool sur­rounded by Bali huts and a 14-hole mini golf green are just a few of the home’s stand­out fea­tures.

Sharon and Den­nis Clark have lived in the wa­ter­front home at 19 River Cove Place for eight years.

Mrs Clark said they stum­bled upon the prop­erty af­ter pulling over on the side of the road to check direc­tions to an­other house in­spec­tion.

“It was like an oa­sis, we were just dumb­founded,” Mrs Clark said.

The two-storey house sits on a 1525sq m block and has five bed­rooms and five bath­rooms.

Mrs Clark said they had ren­o­vated it ex­ten­sively to trans­form the “one-of-akind” prop­erty into their dream home.

“We just wanted to make it re­sort-like,” Mrs Clark said.

She said the rus­tic cel­lar was a favourite among vis­i­tors but she loved the pool area while her hus­band, who was a keen golfer, en­joyed the putting green most.

“It’s been a very fun house to live in — the best eight years of my life,” Mrs Clark said.

“I’m go­ing to miss it very, very much.”
