Waterfront living at its very best
DESIGNED to make the most of its waterfront position, this Sorrento house offers the best of the Gold Coast lifestyle.
Glass bi-fold doors slide open to seamlessly blend indoor and outdoor living while a pool, boat ramp and pontoon encourage residents to enjoy the Coast’s balmy climate.
Owners Leah and Philip Goodman bought the property 17 years ago for its position on the canal and proximity to schools.
Heralding from Sydney, the couple wanted a home that embraced the coastal lifestyle.
But after living in an older house on the block for a few years, they decided to knock it down and start again.
“We bought the older house that was here ... and then realised it wasn’t going to get us through as a family home,” Mrs Goodman said.
“Our brief was originally to make sure that all the bedrooms had water aspects,” Mr Goodman said.
The five-bedroom double-storey home has multiple outdoor entertainment areas, open living spaces as well as a soundproof media lounge and study. Standout features include a 6m-long stone kitchen bench and gas fireplace.
They have decided to sell so they can downsize.
