Iconic Riverfront Home - Unique and Unrivalled

Covering 1351m2 of prime main river land, this grand residential property designed by prolific American architect Edward Larrabee Barnes and was the only home ever designed in Australia which was originally built for Mr. Matsushita - the family behind the Panasonic Electronics empire. The creation is an outstanding residence not only amongst the palatial homes of Paradise Waters but rather the entire Gold Coast. The strong linear architecture is functional yet stylish, providing privacy from the street while maximising wide river views. Bold timber doors lead into the vast front garden - an expanse of lawn around a graceful Poinciana tree, shielded from public view by a high wall and ideal for large-scale entertaining or a safe children's play area.

Off a covered walkway is the sound-proofed 7-seat home cinema and a large laundry with sewing centre and abundant storage. Double timber doors access main living areas where panoramic views take in broad expanses of water and the Gold Coast city skyline. A gas fireplace has been integrated into a massive column, while floor to ceiling glass frame views over the river and into the courtyard garden. This large space offers flexibility for living and dining, with the kitchen defined by a long island bench. Naturally, in a home of this standard, appliances are top-range European names and include a coffee machine, induction hob plus a deep fryer and two concealed fridge-freezers. The adjoining scullery will delight the keenest chef with stainless steel prep benches, ice machine, compactor and wine fridge.

Sleeping areas comprise a vast luxurious master suite on the ground floor with direct access to the 12 metre indoor pool plus a spectacular river and city outlook. The opposite wing includes three upstairs bedrooms, all with private ensuites. Below there is a bedroom designed for wheelchair access - currently used as an executive study along with library and sitting room. The riverside offers a vast entertaining terrace plus two enormous decks extending out over the waters edge. A central walkway gives access to the serviced pontoon which, at 24 metres will accommodate a luxury ocean-going cruiser.

It's unique, it's unrivaled and the grandeur doesn't intimidate. It's substantial and inviting but above all it's a home.

Janine B - Commodore Drive Paradise Waters

Robert and his team were absolutely fantastic, they met all of my expectations of which I had set the bar high. Roberts knowledge of the exclusive Paradise Waters market and today’s dynamics was simply second to none. His reputation for sales in the area was was hard to overlook, but most importantly, he is personable and kind and he get the results. I would have no hesitation in recommending Robert to to any one considering selling their luxury property on The Gold Coast.

Robert always goes the extra mile, nothing is a problem, always contactable and keeps you fully informed.

It was time for us to finally sell the family home that our parents built in the 1970's at 3 Castille Court Isle of Capri. We picked 4 well known Real Estate agents in the area to select the agent we wanted to work with. Part of the decision was to check with some friends who had recently sold and their experiences met with our view that Ray White Prestige Gold Coast were the ones to go with and an easy decision after meeting with Robert Graham. We made the right decision. Robert's leadership of that business is sensational and was professionally supported by his wonderful team. Nothing was too much trouble and we felt we'd worked with Robert for years - it was a true partnership. What else can a property vendor hope for. The only surprise along the way was we didn't make it to auction day as Robert was able to secure 5 offers prior to auction. All of which were above our expectations and sold for $1,500,000 a truly remarkable outcome for us and made the whole experience perfect. Over the years we've bought and sold many properties. This has clearly been the best experience of all.

I appointed Robert Graham from Ray White Prestige Gold Coast to market my whole floor sub-penthouse in Silverpoint in Main Beach in April 2016. I was conscious to select an agent that not only had recorded extensive sales in this exclusive market but an agent that was able to present my property to the widest possible buyer audience both across the Gold Coast and Australia. My apartment was in a landmark building and wanted the marketing campaign under taken to be of a professional and high quality standard which my expectations were met. Throughout the five week marketing campaign we recorded 49 inspections through a targeted and comprehensive marketing campaign that resulted in 6 bidders at the auction and ultimately sold under the hammer for $3,350,000. This was the highest price ever paid in Silverpoint and the highest price paid for an apartment at auction on the entire Gold Coast for over 14 months. If you are considering selling your luxury whole floor, sub-penthouse or penthouse I would encourage you to undertake the services of Robert Graham with the support of Ray White prestige Gold Coast for an honest, hardworking and direct approach. I couldn't be more impressed with the level of service and result achieved for my property.

I remember meeting Robert some 8 years ago and his exceptionally professional approach stuck in my mind!! It is why, I remembered him now! So I telephoned him to discuss our sub penthouse, and from the second I rang, although I hadn't spoken to him for 8 years, he remembered us and treated us with a friendly but respectful manner. His swift organisation skills were a breathe of fresh air, he had had several meetings and phone discussions with us and had our property showcased with professional photos and spiel all loaded up for real and in the space of half a day. Outstanding!!!! Robert is a keen listener and understands what your objectives are and puts them into action extremely well. He is unlike other agents who 'say they listen' and then continually ask the same question over and over again. Robert really cares, it is evident that he is wholeheartedly working for the vendors to get the best possible result for them. When Robert promises you he will do something, he actually does it, as opposed to so many Gold Coast Agents who promise you the world and then nothing happens. Roberts 'follow up' is very pacific, informative and is instant. You know where you stand at all times with prospective buyers. His ability to close a deal is fantastic and we were very happy with his exceptional service. Robert is on top of all this, a great guy and Ray White Real Estate are so fortunate to have their Company represented with such a good man of integrity and passion for his business.
