IT epit­o­mises a lux­ury re­sort with con­tem­po­rary in­te­ri­ors and trop­i­cal gardens sur­round­ing a pool.

Lo­cated on ar­guably one of the Gold Coast’s most pres­tige streets, this dou­ble­storey home is the per­fect re­treat.

Own­ers Sharon and Greg Mitchell have loved every minute of the past three years they have lived in the five-bed­room home.

It was only be­cause their chil­dren moved out that they de­cided to sell their now much too large prop­erty.

“We’re down­siz­ing as all the kids have left home,” Mrs Mitchell said.

She said they bought the home be­cause of its lo­ca­tion. “Monaco St is syn­ony­mous with class on the Gold Coast,” she said.

They have since ti­died it up, in­clud­ing re­paint­ing the out­side, sal­vaging the gar­den and re­car­pet­ing in­side. Mrs Mitchell said the seam­less flow of the home’s floor­plan was a big sell­ing point.

“I love the lay­out of the house, it’s very pri­vate,” she said. “None of the bed­rooms back onto each other. It is a very well thought out and planned house.”

She said the out­door en­ter­tain­ment area was a stand­out fea­ture, with a bar­be­cue area and pool sur­rounded by trop­i­cal gardens.

“The out­door area is like a lit­tle oa­sis.”
