Watch the tide roll away from your private waterfront home, complete with jetty and boat ramp, all on a level 1224m2 block. Surrounded by nature and just the twinkling lights aglow on the water from Redland Bay, you could be anywhere.
This double conservation-block is nestled at one end of Palm Beach Road and is accessed by a private, no-through road. Conservation land abounds, with not a neighbour in sight and only lush native landscape between you and the junction of Kurrajong Road.
A gravel and concrete drive beckons you home, as you enter the double-gates to your waterfront estate. It has a sunny East-facing aspect, with all living flowing to the back deck overlooking Browns Bay, offering endless views and total privacy. There’s so much room to move and plenty of space to add another dwelling, subject to council approval.
Entering the house, the soaring ceiling with exposed timber beams grabs your attention, competing with the open view beyond the covered deck. Giant vertical log-posts hold it all together, creating a rustic ambiance with both a wood-fuel stove and space for a gas fireplace, under the massive built-in timber mantelpiece.
Solid timber floors throughout lend a warm touch, while overhead ceiling fans provide a gentle breeze on a balmy day. This open-plan home with loads of natural elements is sure to impress a buyer looking for a project to inject their personality and style—a sun-bleached coastal haven; Hampton’s white-washed retreat; or an island hide-away, perhaps?
The L-shaped, blonde timber kitchen hugs the North-West corner and has new Westinghouse appliances (glass-cooktop, oven and separate griller). Black granite benchtops with a splattering of golden starbursts dress the space, while tons of drawers provide storage and practical overhead cupboards add to the size.
This inclusive space leans into the large living area, while also servicing the dedicated dining alcove with its Noel Mathews leadlight of ‘koalas in gumtrees’, commissioned in 1975. The sliding-doors off the lounge spill onto the timber deck, which takes prime position stretched across the sprawling front lawn, leading down to the water’s edge for a morning kayak, or a quick check of the fishing lines.
Both bedrooms are expansive, with the master suite having direct access to the midge-screened zone off the rear deck—perfect for evening sundowners or relaxing without pesky insects.
A bathroom with corner spa-bath and separate shower services the two bedrooms and there’s a massive timber vanity with double-sinks. The short hallway has a linen cupboard and connects the second bedroom and laundry (access for spa pump) with a separate, adjacent toilet.
You could waste so much time just sitting on your dock—fishing, painting, enjoying the evening sunset, or simply watching the kids at play. Relaxation is guaranteed with this property and for boat enthusiasts, you could finally have a place to fulfil that dream and build your own 50-metre catamaran, then launch it ‘out the front’.
So much opportunity awaits an energetic family looking for a life of water-sports and outdoor recreation, or equally those wanting to downsize and enjoy the tranquillity of nature while entertaining on the deck after a day on the water.
Much more than a house; this property is an experience only few get to behold in a lifetime.
Imagine the kids crabbing and catching the evening meal, served with a healthy salad from the abundant raised-garden beds which flank two sides of the house. Water tanks are plentiful and a self-watering timer keeps the veggies lush and available all-year, as water is captured from every roof-space for tank storage, good drainage and runoff.

Fish in your backyard or diversify with your own hatchery. Exotic trees planted on the property include king palms, a macadamia hedge (in-training) out front, banana, mango and coconut—a real tropical cocktail. Entertaining is easy with the backdrop of Long Island and Redland Bay in the distance, wildlife aplenty on the water and spectacular sunsets on the horizon.
Walking paths surround the house and all timber decks, eaves and barge boards have been freshly painted. With plenty of turfed outdoor space for the kids to play and room for a trampoline, pool and pets, there’s no end to the fun and adventures here.
Properties with level access this close to the waterfront are very rare—almost unheard of, on the islands. With over 38m2 of water-frontage, you could enclose an area for safe swimming. There’s plenty of off-street parking and more room for boats, the caravan and jet-ski.
