60 Woodgee St, Currumbin is going to auction.
With views to the coast on one side and vistas over the rainforest on the other, a Currumbin home provides an ideal sanctuary between the beach and the Gold Coast bushland.
Set on a hill at 60 Woodgee St, the recently built three-storey home offers a stunning aspect in both directions.

Tabatha and Greg Murgatroyd bought the block of land in 2021 after being drawn to its unique position.
“It faces due north and has a beautiful aspect with rainforest for days out the back and views across Currumbin Beach at the front,” Mrs Murgatroyd said.
“My husband found it and we were very lucky.”
The couple set about building their dream home, designing a four-bedroom house with a media room, pool, self-contained granny flat, and indoor/outdoor entertaining areas that take in the vistas in each direction.
“We wanted the best of both worlds, so we maximised the rainforest outlook with a large entertaining area overlooking the trees at the back and positioned another balcony out the front where you can sit, relax, and read a book, listening to the ocean.”
Stone and wood are used throughout the build.
The home boasts a modern, yet warm and minimalist feel courtesy of an extensive use of natural materials, including stone and timber.
“It feels like you’re on a Mediterranean holiday,” Mrs Murgatroyd said.
Key to that holiday feel is the property’s proximity to cafes, restaurants, and the beach, with the Currumbin coast just a short walk away.
“We walk to the beach each morning, and there are so many restaurants and cafes to choose from,” Mrs Murgatroyd said.
“My husband’s a keen surfer, Currumbin Alley surf break is within easy reach, and the property has a big storage area for surfboards and stand-up paddle boards.”
Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is also at the end of the street, and Mrs Murgatroyd noted she walked there regularly with her grandchildren.
The home enjoys coastal breezes all year round, and its position allows it to take in each sunrise and sunset in all their glory.
“From the front balcony it’s simply stunning and I have the most wonderful memories of spending nights under the stars in the heated magnesium spa pool, which is especially beautiful in winter.”
The kitchen includes a butler’s pantry.
The property is designed as a low-maintenance family home, with a focus on entertaining. “We wanted dual areas to entertain in and it’s the perfect home to do that,” Mrs Murgatroyd said.
“It has a huge entertainer’s kitchen with butler’s pantry, dual ovens, an inducted cooktop and all the bells and whistles, so it’s ideal for anyone who loves to cook.”

Upstairs is the master suite, which has its own private balcony, retreat area, and an ensuite with bathtub overlooking the rainforest, while the bedroom looks out over the ocean
“You can watch the whales from the top balcony, and it’s so lovely because it’s elevated and there’s also a rainforest overlay at the front,” Mrs Murgatroyd said.
Two years in the design and building phase, the residence was recently completed and Mrs Murgatroyd said it deserved a family which could use the property to its full potential.
“We’re a retired couple so are downsizing, but we’re staying in the area because we love it,” she said.
The property is going to auction on January 25 through Kollosche Broadbeach’s Troy Dowker and James Roberts.
