Is this Burleigh’s best view?
A Gold Coast house marketed as having “Burleigh’s best view” is set to go under the hammer.
Sellers Toni and Stuart Derbyshire bought 79 George St Central, Burleigh Heads in September, 2020, instantly attracted to the outlook it offered.
The view stretches north to Surfers Paradise.
The view changes depending on the season.
The house rises four levels.
Built over four levels into a hill, the four-bedroom showstopper offers views of the ocean, city skyline and bushland from every level.
“We were sold on the views, they are absolutely stunning,” Mrs Derbyshire said.
“They are different every day depending on the season and the time of day.
“The sunrise in the morning is beautiful but the sunsets are also stunning.
“We’ve got the city view of Surfers Paradise and then the full nature view of Burleigh Headlands.”
The top level is the “family hub”.
The terrace on the top level is a family favourite.

There are three bedrooms and as study on the third level while a fourth bedroom is on the second level. The first level has an office or retreat that opens to a terrace and pool.
There is even a view from the pool.
