The Queensland hinterland property making waves across the Pacific

There’s more than a touch of magic about this showstopping home that is ready for anything

It has only been on the market for a few days but this spectacular property south of the Gold Coast is already turning heads.

Director at PRD Real Estate Burleigh Heads, John Fischer, said he has been fielding calls from as far away as the United States about the Jayson Pate designed Dahlia Estate at 53 Gibsonville Street, Tallebudgera. 

The boomerang-shaped, two-storey property includes four bedrooms, four bathrooms and space for five cars across the 940sqm floorplan designed to capitalise on the views of bushland and the abundant natural light.

Fully completed just last year, the property is being offered for sale by the owners, who are licensed builders.

Set within a 5.4ha estate in the Coolangatta hinterland with views to Springbrook and The Cougals, the house wraps around a Palm Springs-style heated magnesium swimming pool with a tennis court and viewing platform to the side. There’s even room to land a helicopter.

As might be expected from a property like this, all the extras have been included, from a four-person sauna and outdoor gym area to a spacious home theatre, a wine cellar and light-filled home office big enough for two. The entertainer’s kitchen has dual Miele ovens, induction cooktop, integrated dishwasher and microwave and steamer ovens. The butler’s pantry is equipped with a Zip tap for hot, cold or sparkling water as well as an InSinkErator.

The home is fully automated with Control4 smart home technology and nine music zones. Robotic mowers maintain the lawns. 

The home’s electricity needs are offset by a 26kW solar system with 52 panels and 16kW battery back up. A 50,000L rainwater tank is in addition to the 10,000L firefighting storage and 10,000L irrigation tank. The guest house also has a 2,000L rainwater tank.

Designed for resort-style living, the property is still little more than a 30 minute drive from the main action on the Gold Coast.

While Fischer would not be drawn on price, he pointed to Buddy Franklin’s purchase late last year of a $9 million property at nearby Reedy Creek as a guide.

“And this is a far superior property,” Fischer said.

Amid a national housing crisis, these are the home building hot spots

Australia is in the midst of a housing crisis with supply challenges and demand pressures leading to a clogged pipeline of unfinished new home builds and approvals per capita languishing at decade-lows. There aren’t enough tradies to finish the homes under construction in normal timeframes. Meantime, construction costs have risen by 40 percent since late 2019 and contributed to dramatically higher insolvencies among building companies. High interest rates and lengthy approval processes have also prompted some developers to shelve plans for new projects altogether.

All of these challenges mean the National Housing Accord, with its ambition to build 1.2 million well-located homes over the next five years, will begin shortly amid very difficult conditions. However, the Federal and state and territory governments have agreed to the plan and plenty of money was allocated in the recent Federal Budget to get the program officially underway from 1 July.

Meanwhile, the Housing Industry Association (HIA) has published a report revealing the areas that are in line to receive the most new homes soonest, based on the value of approvals during FY23. The HIA has paired this data with population figures to identify the growth hot spots across Australia.

HIA economist Maurice Tapang said the top 20 hot spots for new approvals and above-average population growth were predominantly suburbs with greenfield developments. These developments require state governments to fund and build supporting infrastructure such as power lines, sewage and water pipes, roads and footpaths to service thousands of new residential lots.

“This is testament to the role that greenfield developments play in supporting the growth of our cities,” Mr Tapang said. “The drivers of housing demand are population and economic growth. Supporting population growth will require supplying adequate homes, which will entail providing the necessary infrastructure and land supply to grow our cities.

“As the high cost of the typical house and land package in some of our capital cities becomes out of reach to the typical income earner, it is important for policymakers to facilitate the supply needed to fill housing shortages. In order to build the Australian Government’s target of 1.2 million homes, there needs to be a healthy balance between greenfield and infill developments to support building well-located homes of all types.”
