Baby Boomers buying up in Mermaid Beach
Floor-to-ceiling windows, a marble island kitchen bench, Blackbutt timber floors and Turkish ceramic tiles are among the standout features in these luxury villas
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.
