The Sanctuary Cove mansion at 7309 Bayside Close is going to auction later this month.

IT is the type of waterfront mansion that will make the neighbours green with envy.

From its street appeal to a seemingly endless list of luxury features, there is a lot to love about the Sanctuary Cove residence.

An elaborate water feature with urns from Vietnam, timber and stone accents as well as tropical plants offer a picture perfect scene before stepping inside.

Owners Peter and Christine Taylor enlisted friend of 25 years Paul Clout, who runs Paul Clout Designs from Noosa, to revitalise the exterior.

A Florida room overlooking the water is one of its standout features.

A kitchen is at the heart of the home and offers plenty of space to cook up a storm.

He specialises in lifestyle design, creating resort-style homes with tropical Queensland, Asian and South Pacific influences.

“I’ve always admired his work,” Mr Taylor said.

“Kindly enough, Paul did a complete remodelling of the house.”

“We’ve done some internal work as well but it didn’t really need a lot.”

Soaring ceilings, wide windows and wood features characterise the home’s interior.

It has open living areas that flow seamlessly outdoors while a Florida room is a standout feature.

“We spend a lot of our time in the Florida room because it’s adjacent the river,” Mr Taylor said.

“We just look across to a mangrove island.”

Take a leisurely dip in the pool or swim laps.

Water views will be one of the first things you’ll see every morning.

It includes a Teppanyaki kitchen and opens onto a terrace with a pool.

Back inside, the kitchen includes a scullery and cold room while the dining room and lounge overlook the pool.

There are also two guest bedrooms with ensuites on the main floor as well as an office.

Upstairs, there are four more ensuited bedrooms.

The main bedroom overlooks the water and features a string of luxury features, including heated tiles on the bathroom floor, a freestanding bath and dressing room.

The lower level is designed for entertaining with a fully-fitted bar, games room, home theatre and gym.

Keep an eye on what’s happening in the games room from the bottom of the pool.

Rectangular windows with a view from the bottom of the pool into the games room offer a unique point of difference.

Mr Taylor said they loved that the home had so much to offer.

“What we love about it was when our children were living at home, it was just so spacious,” he said. “And there are various areas that are different from each other.”

The couple are selling to move closer to family in Brisbane.

The house at 7309 Bayside Close will go under the hammer at Ray White Surfers Paradise Group’s The Event auctions on January 25.
