A $1.8 Million Gold Coast Retreat

If you’ve always wanted to own a bit of land far from the hype of the city that’s within easy reach of the beach, you’ll have to dream a little harder to come up with the prize home in the latest Mater draw. It’s a magnificent four-bedroom residence in Maudsland, nestled in the inner hinterland of the Gold Coast but just 20 minutes from the attractions of Surfers Paradise. You’ll have an acre of land, a gorgeous inground lap pool, and a ton of high-end electronics to play with when you’re not off to the beach or taking a leisurely walk along the trails of the rainforest.

This exclusive draw is worth $1.8 million and includes an extra $5,000 in gold bullion to get you started on a whole new lifestyle. Whether you want to pour yourself a drink from your alfresco bar or prefer to have it served to you in a quaint hinterland pub, you’ll love the endless freedom and possibilities that come with a win of this magnitude. Someone’s going to be moving to the Gold Coast this April and with tickets in draw #282, Queensland’s newest millionaire could well be you.  

A Peaceful Home in Maudsland

The Mater prize home this time around is a veritable mansion hiding behind an understated façade of warm brick and cream facings. Two distinctive wings frame a pristine inground lap pool that’s surrounded by patios, exterior living areas and a lovely pergola. If you treasure your outdoor living areas as much as you do your enclosed spaces, you’ll love what this home has to offer.

At ground level, one half of the home is given over to an open-concept living area that features deep leather couches, a cozy dining room, and a fabulous chef’s kitchen with a full butler’s pantry. Glass doors open onto a back patio that is only the first of several outdoor seating areas. To the other side of the front entry lies the family/rumpus room where you can enjoy a game of pool or watch a movie on your home entertainment system. Walk out onto the pergola and marvel at the view of the rainforest and surrounding hills beyond the edge of your expansive lot.

The master suite is up a short flight of stairs and has its own lounge, patio and gleaming ensuite with both a walk-in shower and wide soaking tub. Up the main flight of stairs near the entrance you’ll arrive at a large home study, a guest suite with a private bath, and two additional bedrooms. In all, the home has four bedrooms, three bathrooms and two powder rooms, with plenty of space to entertain all of your friends and family.

The alfresco and exterior lounge can be accessed from either the kitchen or front entryway. There’s a bar, gas BBQ and pizza oven waiting outside along with a firepit, casual seating area and dining table. The Gold Coast is jammed with popular venues, but you may have difficulty tearing yourself away from attractions of your own back yard!
