Hamptons tragics beware: this Gold Coast home will steal your heart.

Set on a beautifully manicured one-acre block only 15 minutes from Broadbeach, its timeless interiors and luxurious finishes are attracting buyers from across the country, agent Katrina Walsh says.

“The style of this home is just that exquisite, I’ve had interest from buyers everywhere,” she says.

“It really suits the Gold Coast lifestyle, particularly this prestigious gated enclave.”

The house itself is expansive – around 80 squares in fact – and it’s drop-dead gorgeous inside. Featuring a gabled roof line, handcrafted doors, handmade and internationally sourced tiles, custom lights from the Hamptons in the USA, coffered ceilings and custom made leadlight main entrance doors, it’s a property with warmth as well as style.

Wonderfully bright and light inside, it has a strong connection to the outdoors and the extravagant entertaining terrace overlooking the pool.

With six bedrooms, a master suite with a shared balcony, private study and a luxury guest wing, it’s as spacious as it is gorgeous. 84 Dewar Terrace, Sherwood

The cute exterior of this timber Sherwood home belies an absolutely gorgeous and elegant interior.

Considered entry-level buying into the high side of Sherwood, it’s surrounded by multi million-dollar high-end homes, agent Brad Robson says.

“This place is simply gorgeous but the key things here is the position. This is where you want to be in Sherwood, this is where all the expensive property is,” he says. “A home nearby recently sold for $3 million.”

The house has been restored by the current owners, who have done a beautiful job incorporating contemporary fittings in with the original character.

A hushed colour palette and warm timber floors evoke a sophisticated feel, while features like the commerical-style kitchen which opens out to the expansive entertainer’s deck makes the most of the leafy aspect outside.

The spacious master suite has been beautifully finished with eggshell blue walls, timber floors and ornate cornices. There are another two bedrooms which are serviced by a large, central family bathroom. Other features include air conditioning, lush gardens, a white picket fence and garage space for two or more vehicles.

Built in the 1930s, this home is located just moments away from local schools, Sherwood Arboretum and the lifestyle and shopping amenities located on Sherwood Road.29 Rockbourne Terrace, Paddington

Paddington is not short on cute cottages, but this circa 1890s Queenslander is a genuine piece of history.

“These outstanding properties offer astute buyers a rare opportunity to purchase a genuine Queenslander filled with rich character and heritage within easy walking distance of iconic restaurants, bars and boutique shops on Latrobe Terrace,” agent Max Hadgelias says.

There’s plenty of space, with five bedrooms, two bathrooms, a nursery, family room and spectacular formal living room complete with ornate ceilings, heritage fireplace and stained glass doors.

This spacious, light-filled loft-style apartment is already drawing collective “wow”s from potential buyers, agent Deanne Hansom says.

“Everyone keeps asking me if it’s on the top floor. The moment you walk in, there’s this amazing sense of space, natural light and wonderful views. It’s just so open,” Ms Hansom says.

And although it isn’t on the top floor, it may as well be. With entertaining space on two separate decks, it has a wonderful outlooks from both sides, including views of the Kangaroo Point locale, city and hinterland .

Soaring double height ceilings and windows positioned up high do a great job of catching the light, while two generous bedrooms complete with built-in robes capture prevailing breezes.

There is a modern kitchen opening overlooking all living areas, secure lift access, a common area including a BBQ area, gardens and large roof line covered area.

The apartment is within walking distance of buses, CityCats, the Story Bridge Hotel and the beautiful parklands fronting the river. If you don’t want to walk, it has two secure car spaces.
