On top of the world

Sweep­ing views of the coast­line and hin­ter­land make this lux­ury sky­home one of the best places to ad­mire the Gold Coast

IT’S like liv­ing on top of the world in this Surfers Par­adise sub-pent­house.

With panoramic views that en­com­pass the city sky­line, ocean and hin­ter­land, it’s the per­fect spot to ad­mire the Glit­ter Strip’s beauty.

“You can see the whole of the Gold Coast pretty much,” owner Annabell Koh said.

It was the prom­ise of sweep­ing vis­tas and its cen­tral lo­ca­tion that en­cour­aged Ms Koh to buy the 250sq m apart­ment on the 47th floor of the Cir­cle on Cav­ill build­ing off the plan. It cer­tainly didn’t dis­ap­point. She has been liv­ing in it since 2007 with her daugh­ter, un­til re­cently.

Her daugh­ter has moved to Syd­ney so Ms Koh has de­cided to down­size, but she won’t be go­ing far.

“I’ll get a smaller one in the same build­ing,” she said.

She loved the build­ing and its prox­im­ity to pop­u­lar cafes, res­tau­rants, shops and the beach. “I think it’s a fan­tas­tic life­style,” she said. While it was go­ing to be tough for Ms Koh to leave the three-bed­room apart­ment she has called home for the past decade, she said it was time for an­other fam­ily to cre­ate fond mem­o­ries there.

“It’s been my home for a long time,” she said.

“But I think it’s time for an­other fam­ily or some­one else to en­joy this place.”

The lav­ish sky­home is the pic­ture of lux­ury liv­ing.

High ceil­ings, floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows and black and white hues give it a clas­sic style while mod­ern fix­tures and fit­tings make it con­tem­po­rary.

It has an open kitchen and fam­ily room, which flows onto one of the apart­ment’s two bal­conies.

A for­mal liv­ing and din­ing area opens onto the sec­ond bal­cony and sep­a­rates the main bed­room from the two guest be­d­rooms.

Each of the be­d­rooms open onto one of the bal­conies.

The main bed­room has an en­suite and walk-in wardrobe while the two guest be­d­rooms share a bath­room.

The breath­tak­ing views of the Gold Coast can be seen from al­most ev­ery room in the apart­ment.

Res­i­dents of the build­ing also have ac­cess to on­site ameni­ties, in­clud­ing a the­atrette, gym, heated in­door pool and out­door la­goon, spa, sauna, steam room, games room and al­fresco ar­eas.
