Trendy Mermaid Beach villas take luxury to new heights

17 March 2019

1 & 2/8 Albatross Ave, Mermaid Beach are two new luxury listings on the market.

The epitome of low-maintenance, luxurious living is on display throughout these modern Mermaid Beach villas.

The eye-catching facade stands out from the crowd and conceals two homes where an industrial-style design is effortlessly blended with luxury.

The entertainment havens at 1 & 2/8 Albatross Ave make the most of their location and lifestyle the area affords.

The kitchens are sleek and sophisticated.

The statement stairs.

Beach views are on offer from the rooftops.

“The position is massive,” Studio Workshop director Joel Hutchines, who developed the properties, said.

“Really that is the last block with those views that go down the Miami Esplanade.

“Plus, the proximity to the beach, cafes and Nobbys — which is where it is at.”

The homes have an industrial vibe.

Mr Hutchines said the impressive rooftop terraces that offer stunning views were the best part of the villas.

“The rooftops on both proprieties are amazing, it’s what sets them apart from what has been on the market,” he said.

“When you get up there, the views and experience is very appealing.”

He said Studio Workshop have an emphasis on materials and textures, hence the sleek and sophisticated blend of finishes inside.

From the statement Blackbutt timber stairs to the marble kitchen benchtops with a prominent grey vein — selected as it was different to the Calacatta marble that is commonly found these days — each material was a bold and considered choice.

A plunge pool is part of the package.

Marble is on show throughout.

The facade was originally designed to be made of timber, but aluminium was used to ensure the properties were as low maintenance as possible and had a long lifespan.

“The materials are raw and the feel is really natural, that has been a big approach of Studio Workshop,” Mr Hutchines said.

“The biggest piece everyone is talking about is that screen on the front.

“It is something very different for the Gold Coast … often all the buildings look the same, the screen breaks it down and created street presence that’s not too imposing.”

A blissful beach lifestyle.

A stylish living room.

Both of the villas features four bedrooms, three opulent bathrooms, a sun-drenched rooftop and a plunge pool.

The floorplans sprawl across four levels and 456sq m.

The rooftops are dedicated to the terraces, which both have a built-in barbecue.

Two main bedrooms with two bathrooms are on the third level of each.

A dreamy bedroom.

The second floor hosts the stylish kitchens and dining rooms, with a balcony and a funky built-in seat, plus the main living rooms.

A terrace, pool, two bedrooms, one bathroom and the garage are found on the ground floor of both.

The entrances, with the impressive staircases, have voids that stretch the height of the four levels.

The four-bedroom abodes have a $2.295 million price tag each and are being marketed by Jordan Williams of JW Prestige Agents.

" I've known Jordan for a while, and I wanted a prestige agent when it came time to sell my property. I picked Jordan because he was direct, he was confident and I knew he was going to work in my best interest.  I didn't want a salesman who would beat around the bush with the buyers. What Impressed me most about the Jordan Williams team was the communication, the professionalism of the team and how quickly the property moved. "

" Jordan came very highly recommended to us and he didn't let us down. He is a real go getter and got a deal done in a matter of days. I would gladly use him again and loved his constant feedback and positive energy. "

" We called several local agents, basically all that had "For Sale" signs in our suburb. We had meetings and interviews, we were told that we were in a "difficult market" and that our price expectation was probably too high. Open house inspections were advocated by all agents (we did not want) and auction was suggested by a few (also did not want). Jordan Williams had recently sold a friend's house, she was very enthusiastic that we meet with him. He was located in a distant suburb, a relatively new, one-man agency. He told us that our price was high, but he would get very close, he said he was totally happy with "Inspection By Appointment" and that his job was to sell our house with the least inconvenience and disruption to us. we signed with him after our 60 minute meeting. Well, we were on the market for 3 months, every one of the 12 inspections resulted in an offer and our sale was negotiated to within 5% of our asking. Our satisfaction with Jordan Williams is 100%. Totally recommend this boutique agency! "

" Recently I put my home up for sale with Jordan Williams. Both the co-owner and myself were very impressed with Mr. Williams professionalism. He returned our calls promptly, guided us through the selling process., put us in touch with an excellent firm of solicitors who were also as available as himself....and found a buyer for our home in a matter of days. At all times he explained the necessary procedures he would put in place so we would have a clear understanding of every aspect of the process. He is succinct, courteous, knowledgeable, takes pains to understand what it is you are wanting, and delivered on everything he said he would. I have no hesitation in recommending Jordan Williams if you are considering selling your home. "
