Surfers Paradise mansion left empty for a year is back on the market

125 Commodore Dr, Surfers Paradise is going to auction
THE director of a Melbourne company which produced millions of surgical face masks through the pandemic splashed $10.5 million on a Surfers Paradise mansion but never made the move to Queensland.
The spectacular Hamptons-style estate has remained vacant since it last sold in June 2022 and will go under the hammer on May 4.
The five-bedroom, four-bathroom riverfront mansion at 125 Commodore Dr, Surfers Paradise is listed with Ray White Surfers Paradise agent Robbie Graham.
“The owner’s circumstances have changed. The family is not relocating to the Gold Coast, they are remaining in Melbourne and the property will be sold,” Mr Graham said.
Mr Graham did not comment on the identity of the owner.

Property records show the home on a 836sq m allotment is registered to the company name, GC Properties Australia Ptd Ltd. Denis Midor, of Toorak, is listed as the sole director.
Russian-born Mr Midor is also registered as the director of Softmed, a Melbourne medical goods supplier which in 2020 pivoted its production lines to manufacture face masks and other PPE to support Australia through the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Paradise Waters trophy home occupies the largest single block allotment in one of the city’s most expensive riverfront streets.
Designed by renowned architect Jared Poole, the three-storey house has views over one of the widest sections of Gold Coast waterways, while the front of the home overlooks the sportsgrounds of TSS private school.

Timelessly elegant, the home is grand yet warm, impressive yet inviting, with attention to details evident throughout.
The layout includes formal and informal areas both indoors and out, and multiple living zones across three levels, as well as a study, gymnasium and ground floor guest suite.
A formal entrance makes a statement with 7m ceilings, while design highlights include large windows, solid timber oak floorboards, coffered ceilings with recessed lighting, elegant timber wall panels, custom cornices and surround sound throughout.
There are five bedrooms
…all with ensuites
The kitchen is both striking and practical, equally suited for intimate family dinners or catering for a large function, with a solid Calacatta marble island bench, integrated fridge, freezer and drinks drawer, plus plenty of storage and benchspace. The butler’s pantry has integrated double Miele dishwashers and fridge, as well as a professional grade Bertazzoni freestanding oven.
Five ensuited bedrooms include the spectacular waterfront master suite with views each way along the Main River, a lounging area, walk-through dressing room and wardrobe that connects to a luxury ensuite with large double vanity, triple shower head shower and a deep soak bath.

Elegant French doors and plantation shutters open outdoors to manicured lawns and grand magnolia trees, as well as an elevated entertaining terrace by the water, heated 15m
infinity-edge pool and built in fire-pit setting.
Throughout the home, classic stylings combine with the latest technology such as state of the art automation controlling the lighting, blinds, alarm, audio, as well as ducted air-conditioning and advanced security system.
The basement garage features six car spaces, a wine cellar, storage and mudroom.
Mr Graham described the property as “magnificent”.
“Certainly, it is one of the most impressive homes to come to market, in a truly spectacular location,” Mr Graham said.
“With its proximity to TSS and St Hilda’s private schools, as well as dining hotspots on Tedder Ave and shopping precincts, this home wants for nothing.
“It really is a family home for the family that expects the very best.”
