TWO lux­ury vil­las un­der con­struc­tion in one of the Gold Coast’s most pop­u­lar sub­urbs are at­tract­ing cashed-up Baby Boomers.

The bou­tique Mer­maid Beach res­i­dences on Pe­trel Ave were de­signed by Gold Coast-based com­pany Stu­dio Work­shop. Kol­losche Pres­tige Agents manag­ing di­rec­tor Jor­dan Wil­liams said they of­fered a lux­ury lifestyle with­out the main­te­nance of a house.

He said they catered to house hun­ters look­ing for smaller prop­er­ties close to the beach and city’s ameni­ties.

“We’re get­ting a lot of cashed-up buy­ers who are down­siz­ing – Baby Boomers mov­ing beach­side,” he said.

Mr Wil­liams said the two-storey vil­las were at­tract­ing prospec­tive buy­ers even though they were still un­der con­struc­tion. “They’re due for com­ple­tion in a cou­ple of months but I’ve ac­tu­ally got a few peo­ple al­ready who want to look through,” he said.

One of the vil­las is built over 220sq m while the other is on 213sq m.

They each have three bed­rooms, two bath­rooms and a pow­der room, an al­fresco area and plunge pool. They are on the mar­ket at $1.595 mil­lion each.
