Holiday at Home


The name of this home — Floating Waterhouse — says it all. This truly remarkable luxury residence claims a prized waterside location within the Gold Coast’s premier private gated estate, Hope Island Resort.

Built by David Radic Prestige Homes, working to a design by Chris Clout Design, this multi-level house oozes the essence of resort living. From the large central pond to the lavish outdoor entertaining pavilion and the fully-tiled lap pool located directly on the waterfront, this is a custom home to rival the most luxurious five-star resort.

The envy of the neighbourhood, the home boasts an abundance of glass which fills the interior spaces with light and ensures the relaxing water views are maximised. This creates a holiday-at-home vibe and makes the home feel like a place of escape — one that is perfectly suited to the Gold Coast but could, in fact, be anywhere in the world. 

To make the most of the site, the home has a basement level above which sit two additional levels, each featuring inviting, open-plan living spaces that flow with ease, one into the other, and enjoy an effortless indoor-outdoor connection. 

In building the abode, David Radic Prestige Homes paid close attention to every detail and used only high-quality materials and finishes to ensure a superlative result. Throughout, Tasmanian blackwood timber features in the joinery, walling, screening and more. The timber tones warm the spaces and contrast the polished concrete floors. The home is also awash with custom features that make it truly unique and provide the owners with a beautiful, personalised retreat ideal for year-round entertaining.
