Hide­away in par­adise

This lux­ury four-bed­room apart­ment is deep in the heart of the beach­side ac­tion at Surfers Par­adise yet it still pro­vides the ultimate in pri­vacy

Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - Property - - FRONT PAGE - WORDS ALEISHA DAWSON

EVEN be­fore his first sip of morn­ing brew, cof­fee king Phillip Di Bella’s week­end es­cape on the Gold Coast would kick off with the spec­tac­u­lar ocean vista from his fourth floor apart­ment at Al­lure in Surfers Par­adise.

“We get a view of the wa­ter from ev­ery room in the apart­ment,” said Mr Di Bella. “It’s a great start to any day.”

Af­ter two years en­joy­ing their coastal get­away, the Bris­bane-based Mr Di Bella is sell­ing the spa­cious apart­ment.

The res­i­dence spans 337sq m across the en­tire fourth floor of Al­lure, a bou­tique devel­op­ment with 13 res­i­dent-only apart­ments. The apart­ment blends a re­laxed de­sign with open plan liv­ing, while of­fer­ing the ultimate in pri­vacy.

Floor-to- ceil­ing re­tractable stacker doors open on to the ex­pan­sive out­door bal­cony to en­hance the sense of space, tak­ing ad­van­tage of the spec­tac­u­lar panorama of the Gold Coast’s beach­front.

The apart­ment has three bed­rooms, each with their own en­suite, plus a pow­der room. There is also a sep­a­rate of­fice and me­dia room fea­tur­ing a fully equipped home theatre with in­te­grated Cbus light­ing and sound. The apart­ment has qual­ity fix­tures and fit­tings through­out, with gas cook­tops and a cof­fee maker, of course. The fin­ishes are com­ple­mented by lime­stone tiles, gran­ite bench­tops and rich tim­ber pan­elling.

Mr Di Bella said the de­ci­sion to sell was dif­fi­cult, as his fam­ily en­joys head­ing to the Gold Coast when they can.
