About This Property:

The right house, on the right street, in the right suburb... If you've been waiting for your forever home, this may just be the one.

82 Goicochea Drive is a custom built architectural home perfectly suited to its commanding hillside position above Bushland Beach in Tropical North Queensland.
Built in 2010 by Parsons Construction and designed by GVD Building Design, this magnificent 380m2 under roof property took home an HIA award for it's unique use of space and suitability for the location. You will not find a better home in the tropics to enjoy our beautiful sea breezes and year round outdoor lifestyle.

If you love to entertain you’ll instantly feel at home here. A large hardwood deck runs nearly the length of the property and is easily accessible from the living, dining and kitchen areas. There is a dedicated barbeque space with plenty of room for an outdoor fridge and pizza oven. Intelligent designers of the outdoor living area built the infinity pool at the same level as the deck so it’s easy to socialise with your friends as they cool off. A magnesium mineral system keeps the water sparkling clean and is better than a salt water pool for your skin and eye health.

Every house built for entertaining deserves a great kitchen. From behind the stone waterfall bench your household master chef will enjoy a commanding view of the action. Cooking supplies and equipment are easily stored in the numerous soft close drawers and large walk in pantry. This well appointed kitchen features matching Miele appliances (including 2 ovens), induction stove top, a plumbed fridge space and a chilled water outlet.

If you can get your guests to leave, you can retire to the master bedroom which is situated on the ground floor of the home. It enjoys the same striking island views as the deck, and you can experience them from both your bed and the magnificent freestanding bathtub in the ensuite. For extra privacy and a classic sense of style, the current owners have installed plantation shutters on the windows here. In addition to the tub, you’ll find a double shower and floating vanity with dual sinks. The walk in wardrobe is large and well organised. You can explore it for yourself in our 3D tour.

It’s so hard to keep a good collection of red wine in North Queensland. Thoughtful designers have located your personal temperature controlled “wine cellar” in the coolest part of the house. Your private collection of over 100 bottles will be safe here.

One of the biggest problems people encounter when purchasing hillside properties is a lack of space for storage. If you have camping gear and like to maintain a beautiful yard you will find more than enough space in the fully lockable, weather proof storage room beneath the home. Those planning for the future will find that this room has been built to legal height specifications for a bedroom, and can easily be converted into a granny flat if the need arises.

The other downfall of most hillside properties is a lack of space for children and pets to play. 82 Goicochea Drive features a large, flat, beautifully manicured back lawn which is perfect for a game of tag or to exercise Rover in the afternoon. Fastidious owners have planted a variety of beautiful tropical specimens on the 1059m2 block during the tenure at this home and garden aficionados will appreciate the variety of foliage. Both lawns and gardens are fully automatically irrigated.

Depending on how you organise your household you may wish for guests to stay downstairs. On the main level you will find a large, fully appointed bedroom that features the same beautiful hardwood floors that run throughout this home. You may however wish to dedicate the entire upper storey as a visitor’s wing. With a spacious, fully air conditioned lounge, 2 generous bedrooms with island views, a dedicated bathroom and a wonderful deck to watch the sunset from in the evenings… Your guests may never leave.

Speaking of guests… you can fit a 22ft caravan on the hard stand next to this house and there is a 15 amp plug nearby ready to go.
