Tee off in a pri­vate par­adise

Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - - NEWS -

AS far as jaw­drop­ping ren­o­va­tions go, this is a hole-in-one.

A 14-hole minigolf course is just one of the stand­out fea­tures Sharon and Den­nis Clark have added to their He­lensvale man­sion since buy­ing it al­most eight years ago.

Sur­rounded by palm trees and over­look­ing the river, the cou­ple say “the putting green”, com­plete with check­ered flags and bunkers, is a hit with guests. It is also one of the home’s big­gest sell­ing points now that it’s on the mar­ket.

Since buy­ing the sprawl­ing prop­erty at 19 River Cove Place, the in­te­rior dec­o­ra­tors by trade have trans­formed it into their dream home, which could eas­ily be mis­taken for a hol­i­day re­sort.

Mrs Clark said the back­yard was per­fect for en­ter­tain­ing with the minigolf course and trop­i­cal pool sur­rounded by Bali huts. One of the Bali huts has a swim-up bar while an­other has a shower, bath­room and change room.

“The whole back­yard now is just like a re­sort,” she said.

Mrs Clark said while it would be hard to re­place, it was time to down­size since their chil­dren had moved out.

“It’s one-of-a-kind, I’m go­ing to miss it very, very much,” she said.
