Water­front liv­ing at its very best

Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - Property - - FRONT PAGE - WORDS JES­SICA BROWN

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.
