Soak up the view

Live a glam­orous life­style over­look­ing the Glit­ter Strip from the hills of Tal­lai

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

THE term “Hin­ter­land haven” is used lib­er­ally to de­scribe lux­ury res­i­dences or char­ac­ter homes on the western side of the Gold Coast, but one prop­erty can con­fi­dently claim the ti­tle.

This lav­ish man­sion on a Tal­lai hill­top has ev­ery­thing a home­owner could want and more.

With a ten­nis court, gym, sauna, mul­ti­ple pools and spas, wet bar and wine cel­lar among its stand­out fea­tures, you will never need to leave the house.

The home on The Panorama was built by Frank and Jenny Me­siano in 2001.

“We used an ar­chi­tect out of Mel­bourne, Er­min Sm­rekar, who built and fin­ished the home in two years,” Mr Me­siano said.

“It was to be our fam­ily home for­ever so low-main­te­nance and a time­less de­sign were part of the brief to the ar­chi­tect. It was all about the life­style and rais­ing a fam­ily.”

It has plenty of floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows to make the most of the stun­ning vis­tas – ar­guably some of the best on the Gold Coast.

It was th­ese sweep­ing views that stretch from Strad­broke Is­land to Tweed Heads that drew the Me­sianos to the 3ha block.

“That’s why we ended up there, be­cause of the views, and it’s very se­cluded, peace­ful and safe,” he said.

“It’s a place you don’t have to leave as the prop­erty has ev­ery­thing, but you’re only 20 min­utes to the beach and ten min­utes to the bot­tom of the hill where there’s great schools and Robina Town Cen­tre.”

The 1291sq m three-level house has five be­d­rooms, mul­ti­ple liv­ing and din­ing ar­eas, a study, games room, and dou­ble garage with work­shop.

The main liv­ing ar­eas are on the ground floor, most of which open onto a large ter­race.

The lounge room is a stand­out with a mar­ble fire­place and 500kg fea­ture mar­ble wall piece.

Four of the be­d­rooms are up­stairs, in­clud­ing the main, all of which have their own bal­conies.

A fifth bed­room is on the base­ment level and is self-con­tained with ac­cess to a kitchen, bath­room and two liv­ing ar­eas. All three lev­els over­look the ten­nis court and coast­line.

The Me­siano fam­ily moved closer to the beach in 2012 but have been man­ag­ing the prop­erty as a lux­ury hol­i­day rental in re­cent years.

“The busi­ness is still run­ning but we’ve stopped tak­ing book­ings,” Mr Me­siano said.

“So, the next owner could de­velop it into a full-time ven­ture as it’s quite sub­stan­tial.”

Ray White Broad­beach agents Sam Guo and Ju­lia Kuo are mar­ket­ing the prop­erty un­der an ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est cam­paign, which closes on Novem­ber 26.

Mr Guo said it was one of the best homes in the Hin­ter­land.

“It feels like one of those houses in Bev­erly Hills with a real wow fac­tor,” he said. “It’s a very grand and pri­vate par­adise.”
