My Top Three Mermaid Beach Homes by Ryan Ward

A coastal paradise synonymous with prestigious beachfront properties. 

Nestled beneath Miami and Broadbeach, Mermaid Beach is a coastal paradise synonymous with prestigious beachfront properties. It’s a suburb which regularly features when rounding up the Gold Coast’s most sought-after suburbs, thanks in large part to the famed Hedges Avenue and Albatross Avenue. Let’s take a look at my top three homes in Mermaid Beach (with one honourable mention!). 


17 Hedges Avenue, Mermaid Beach

There’s so much to love about this magnificent ‘Millionaire’s Row’ masterpiece. Perched in an absolute beachfront location and on one of the Gold Coast’s most exclusive streets, it’s easy to see why this multi-level residence of distinction makes my top three.

Having undergone an extensive no-expense-spared renovation, it features flawless travertine marble, Onyx and Venetian plaster finishes throughout, as well as a host of enticing inclusions. These include a fully equipped media room, C-BUS home automation, gym, temperature-controlled wine cellar, 6 car basement garage and a lift to service all four levels. The gourmet kitchen is accompanied by a butler’s pantry, while the open plan living and dining flows out to a beachfront deck.

With six sophisticated bedrooms and seven marble accented bathrooms also on offer, as well as an enviable corner block aspect, this is a home which enjoys all the benefits of living on the doorstep of pristine beaches, local cafes, restaurants and shops.

16 Surf Street, Mermaid Beach

There’s simply so much to love about a timeless and meticulously renovated beach house. Capturing alluring ocean views which epitomises the desirable, beachside lifestyle of Mermaid Beach, this house makes my top three because of its outlook, finishes, location and dual living opportunity.

Positioned on a rare corner block between Seagull Avenue and Surf Street, it boasts 32 metres of prime, north facing street frontage. It also spoils you for choice with six bedrooms set out over two residences, ensuring the opportunities are endless for dual beachside living.

Set against the backdrop of golden sands and the glistening Pacific Ocean, it’s surrounded by landmark residences and delivers an enticing opportunity for redevelopment or renovation.

 Honourable Mention – 272 Hedges Avenue
