Re­sort style liv­ing hits the mark

The owner of this sprawl­ing Talle­budgera prop­erty says you can en­joy the peace and tran­quil­lity of coun­try liv­ing, but still be close to shops, res­tau­rants and the beach

IT’S de­scribed as the Gold Coast’s best acreage life­style and it’s not hard to see why.

Wel­come to 40 Sa­muel Drive, Talle­budgera – where you are sur­rounded by breath­tak­ing scenery in the tightly held Kal­imna Es­tate.

Kay Black­burne bought the six-bed­room house in 2013, drawn to its out­look over Talle­budgera Val­ley and a seem­ingly end­less list of lux­ury fea­tures.

“I wanted to have a large open plan en­ter­tain­ment area where I could watch my chil­dren and grand­chil­dren play in the pool and on the ten­nis court from my kitchen,” the grand­mother-of-six said.

“I ab­so­lutely love play­ing ten­nis and so the ten­nis court is my favourite fea­ture of the prop­erty. The pool is fab­u­lous for small chil­dren as it has a large la­goon area where small chil­dren can play safely. As my grand­chil­dren have grown older, the pool is huge and has plenty of space for them to swim.”

The res­i­dence is nes­tled within the 4,604sq m block and faces north­east to max­imise sun­light, pri­vacy and pic­turesque views.

The kitchen sep­a­rates the for­mal and ca­sual liv­ing ar­eas and over­looks the al­fresco pa­tio which pro­vides plenty of space to dine, lounge, cook and en­ter­tain while tak­ing in the pool and trop­i­cal gar­dens.

“I love cel­e­brat­ing birth­days and Christ­mas in this home with plenty of space for ev­ery­one,” she said.
