Property Of The Week: 26 Island Point Road, Port Douglas, QLD
With panoramic beach views and luxury resort living, this former home of a well-known Australian music identity proves a standout contemporary property.
Perhaps the most talked about house in Port Douglas, The Glasshouse is a contemporary architectural gem among just a handful of private homes on coveted Island Point Rd opposite Four Mile Beach.
After a meticulous multimillion dollar renovation that was two years in the making, the landmark property has been transferred into a state of the art resort style residence featuring Italian imports such as Murano glass chandeliers and curated furnishings from Sergio Villa Mobil as well as commissioned artwork by Charles Billich.
Once owned by music publicist Patti Mostyn famous for working with the likes of Frank Sinatra, George Michael, Sting and Elton John, the grand four-bedroom property on 1897sq m has views across the beach to the mountain ranges and Dickson Inlet beyond.
Mostyn sold the home in 2021 for $6.125 million, but the made over modern beach house is now listed with Barbara Wolveridge of Queensland Sotheby’s International Realty for $8.95 million.
The Glasshouse’s ground floor is home to the open-plan main living zone and entertainer’s kitchen fitted with the latest LG smart appliances and a vast central island eat-at bench. The family-friendly space spills out to a full-width wraparound balcony with ample room for cocktail hour.
On the first floor there are two large bedrooms with ensuites and terrace access while the second level houses two more multipurpose rooms, one with an ensuite. This floor’s added bonus is the 10m pool with water chiller and heater, sun deck fitted with Sunbrella furniture, outdoor kitchen and convenient poolside powder room.
A turn key furnished listing with all the colourful luxury bells and whistles, The Glasshouse has been designed for entertaining, especially in the tropical outdoors with commercial ice makers and drinks refrigerators on decks, a Sonos sound system and extensive lighting outside as well as 3000 newly planted trees in a private orchid and 2000 tropical plants.
High-tech features throughout include Bang & Olufsen and Samsung televisions, motorised entry gate and garage, a new alarm system, 12-camera CCTV, 13 new air conditioners and commercial Big Ass fans.
Close to town, The Glasshouse is easy walking distance to the beach, marina, and Macrossan Street shops while being approximately an hour’s drive to Cairns International Airport.
