CHRIS and John Ren­ton are sell­ing the Sovereign Is­lands man­sion that was meant to be their “for­ever home”, but they won’t be mov­ing far.

The cou­ple have fallen in love with the pres­tige en­clave at Par­adise Point af­ter al­most a decade of liv­ing there.

It comes as REIQ fig­ures re­veal the sub­urb’s me­dian house price jumped 62.2 per cent to $1.505 mil­lion in the Septem­ber quar­ter. Mrs Ren­ton said they have de­cided to down­size to a villa in the area be­cause they couldn’t imag­ine liv­ing any­where else.

“We’re stay­ing within five min­utes of where we are at the mo­ment be­cause we love the area,” she said.

“It’s a nice safe haven sur­rounded by beau­ti­ful homes.”

They built their lux­u­ri­ous four-bed­room, five­bath­room res­i­dence in Royal

Al­bert Cres to make the most of the wa­ter views.

“We de­signed the house to suit the block be­cause it’s fan-shaped,” Mrs Ren­ton said.

“We like it be­cause of the po­si­tion. We have so much ac­tiv­ity in front of us, be­ing on the wa­ter.

“It’s like be­ing on our own lit­tle har­bour.”

Among the home’s stand­out fea­tures are a pool over­look­ing the wa­ter, a me­dia room as well as mul­ti­ple liv­ing and out­door en­ter­tain­ment ar­eas.

Mrs Ren­ton of­ten en­joyed re­lax­ing out­side on a daybed over­look­ing the wa­ter while en­joy­ing a glass of wine.

“It’s a lovely home, we’ve re­ally en­joyed it,” she said.

The house is be­ing mar­keted by Ray White Sovereign Is­lands agents Edin Kara and Win­son Woo with an ask­ing price of $3.49 mil­lion.
