On the hunt for a home in a peace­ful sub­ur­ban pocket but is also close to all the Gold Coast ac­tion? This house of­fers the best of both worlds

IT might be nes­tled in a quiet sub­ur­ban culde-sac but this wa­ter­front home is only min­utes away from the hus­tle and bus­tle of the Glit­ter Strip.

Pa­cific Fair, The Star Gold Coast, beach and pop­u­lar Broad­beach cafes and restau­rants are within walk­ing dis­tance.

The lo­ca­tion was what at­tracted Michael and Rachael Fur­nell and their three chil­dren to the prop­erty al­most a decade ago.

Mr Fur­nell said his teenage daugh­ters loved be­ing so close to the light rail while they of­ten strolled down to the beach and casino.

The fam­ily, who moved from Ho­bart, have lived in the four-bed­room prop­erty for eight years.

Mr Fur­nell said the out­door area over­look­ing the wa­ter was one of their favourite spots to spend time to­gether.

“The kitchen and din­ing area opens up out­doors (as) we’ve got ex­tended doors that track back,” he said.

“I’ve got a lit­tle bar­be­cue and pizza oven so once a week we try to have home­made piz­zas.”

The home also has a study, which could be used as a fifth bed­room, as well as a pool with wa­ter­fall, shed and built-in Bosch cof­fee ma­chine in the kitchen.

Mr Fur­nell said they would miss liv­ing in the house but “we’re just ready for a change”.
