1. Rivermead Estate, Caballo Road, Guanaba – Gold Coast QLD
Situated 30 minutes behind the north end of the Gold Coast, this $21.5 Million AUD 6 bedroom Estate is the most elegant on this list. The property is a polo players paradise – 21 hectares of lush green countryside, stables, a riding arena and a full-size polo field. For those not that into horses, don’t worry the property has everything else including a Helipad.
The main house is built in Plantation-style and incorporates some Queenslander features like the elegant stairway at the front of the property. The interior looks incredible, especially on the bottom floor with the contrast between the blue walls and decorative white ceiling, beautifully paired with a low gloss solid timber floor. The furniture gracefully repeats the colour scheme. The only thing I would change would be the white window shutters, which fit the style but keep too much light out.
All in all this place is a masterpiece in architecture and landscaping. You would though want to make sure you have some money left after the purchase to employ a team of gardeners to maintain all the pruned bushes, gardens and lawns.
