Private beachfront lifestyle ready and waiting in South-East Queensland

Enjoy the best of both worlds at Highlife Homes’ Blanca and Madera duplexes on the Gold Coast, which balance quiet luxury with all the benefits of central beachside living.

These four-storey residences, on the doorstep of Miami Beach, are available to buy and move into now – just in time for the summer holidays.

The Blanca and Madera residences are ready to move into now.

James MacQueen, Sales Agent for Highlife, says it’s hard to come by such high-calibre boutique townhouse developments so close to the ocean and under $3 million.

Unlike the conventional choices of high-rise apartments or standalone houses typically associated with beachfront living, the Blanca and Madera residences blend proximity to the ocean and the charm of low-maintenance townhouse living.

Deluxe design and amenities

Burleigh Heads-based Highlife Homes is renowned for creating residences with exemplary designs.

The Blanca and Madera duplexes are no exception, boasting a sense of elegance with soaring three-metre ceilings and high-end finishes, coupled with a laid-back luxury feel.

“The rooftop entertaining space is a special feature of these homes,” MacQueen says.

Enjoy a late afternoon sunset on the front balcony overlooking the soon-to-be-built Redondo Park, out towards the hinterland, or step up to the north and east-facing rooftop to enjoy panoramic ocean views.

Enjoy the sea breeze and ocean views from your own barbecue entertaining area.

“With a benchtop, barbecue area and bar fridge, you can wine and dine with friends, all while looking at beautiful Miami Beach and enjoying the fresh sea breeze,” he says.

“Buyers will also be fortunate enough to have a private elevator in their home for the convenience of moving between floors, transporting groceries to the kitchen, etc.”

MacQueen says the design is inspired by organic elements, such as stone, clay, sand, native flora, wood and warm metals.

“We have reflected these natural materials in the finishes and fixtures to create an overall calming, neutral and timeless aesthetic,” he says.

“The general colour scheme is light and warm, with gunmetal and brass accents and a hint of tranquil green in the powder room.”

Stunning interior finishes epitomise coastal chic.

Luxe interior features include European oak floors, Faucet Strommen tapware, hand-rendered Venetian rendered feature walls to the ensuite, hand-poured concrete TV bench, tumbled brass surface downlights, a natural mojito stone wall light in the ensuite and travertine-look tiles.

Best of beachside living

Striking a perfect balance between quiet and vibrant, Miami is one of the Gold Coast’s most enticing beachside suburbs offering great shopping, dining and leisure activities.

“Miami is incredibly central to everything the south Gold Coast has to offer, including Burleigh Heads, Mermaid Beach, major shopping destinations, the Gold Coast Airport, the Broadbeach dining precinct, Tallebudgera Creek and, of course, the famed Miami Marketta,” MacQueen says.

“It’s family-friendly with an array of the best playgrounds, parks, bike rides, schools and childcare centres nearby, not to mention the expansive Pizzey Park sports precinct

With Miami’s relaxed vibe, it is hardly surprising that people who move there often stay for life.

Relaxed luxury, inside and out.

“Mermaid Beach and Miami Beach are undoubtedly aspirational spots to live, known for the luxury properties within them, but its residents very much have a sense of free-spiritedness with a focus on relaxed coastal living,” MacQueen adds.

Situated in an extraordinary enclave, these homes occupy a rare pocket shielded by a 15-metre building height limit along the entire beach.

Miami Beach stands out as one of only five suburbs on the Gold Coast with such unique zoning, ensuring a skyline free from towering structures that dominate neighbouring beaches.

This is a distinctive opportunity to relish the coastal lifestyle without compromising on the intimacy of a tranquil, beachside community.

Broad buyer appeal

Retirees, young families, professionals and downsizers are among the buyer groups likely to be drawn to the adaptable design of the Blanca and Madera residences.

An ocean view from the top-floor bedroom also makes for a great home office, while the location and four bedrooms would also appeal to small families.

These residences make the most of the beachside location.

“It is also a great entertaining home with the rooftop terrace and large balcony off the living area, so this would perhaps appeal to professional couples,” MacQueen says.

“The convenience of the elevator, the low maintenance and the lifestyle-oriented location would appeal to retirees and downsizers who perhaps want the benefit of an ocean-front apartment without the burden of hefty body corporate fees, shared parking and lack of a private courtyard.”

Created with care

Combining lifestyle elements with beautiful, functional residences, Highlife Homes connects with the homes they create for their clients.

“We design and curate these homes as if we are designing our own homes,” MacQueen says.

“Every little detail is as important as the larger design elements… thoughtfully chosen and reviewed to ensure we are using the best quality products and creating the most beautiful end result for the homeowners.”

Only two homes remain, so don’t miss out on this rare opportunity.
