The couple moved from Sydney to Clear Island Waters five years ago, chasing the Queensland sunshine and laid-back Gold Coast lifestyle.
“We moved from Sydney to the Gold Coast and noticed all of the houses on Clear Island Waters were so ornate and beautiful but they were 25 to 30 years old,” Ms Khalil
“It seemed like Clear Island Waters was its own beautiful community but we wanted to breathe fresh air into the area.
“We were hoping to be try and set the tone and set a trend there — all of the blocks are huge, the water is beautiful, and unless you know about Clear Island Waters, you don’t really go there.”
The third level offers an entertaining space.
The couple bought a corner block before subdividing it, and worked with designer Stuart Osman to bring their vision of two luxury houses to life.
“We love all the buildings in Burleigh that are right on the beach so they were definitely inspiration for the build,” she said.
The end result is two concrete-constructed houses complete with stonework and wooden features.
There is also a wet bar on the third level.
The pair decided to keep one and have put 38 Cayman Drive on the market.
“It was meticulously designed to house anyone at any stage of their life,” Mrs Khalil said.
“It’s a space for a family, a business man, a retired couple — anybody can use the space.
“Functionality wise, it has all the bells and whistles of modern city living with a coastal feel.”

The 478 sqm floorplan includes four bedrooms, five bathrooms, a butler’s pantry, timber staircase and feature stone walls.
The rooftop is designed for entertaining with a large multipurpose room with wet bar, bathroom, and barbecue area.
“The third level can be a room for the kids to go up to or a beautiful area to have Friday arvo drinks in and incorporate that part into a living area,” Mrs Khalil said.
“There’s definitely nothing in the area that has that.”
The kitchen.
There is also a pool, outdoor alfresco area, double garage with built-in storage as well as a carport.
The home also has the option of being sold fully furnished.
“You can literally just bring your clothes and car and enjoy the house,” Mrs Kahlil said.
“We really tried to cater for the modern family.”
