Krystle and Mark Holmes are among those who have waited until spring to list their Currumbin home.
Mr Holmes is the founder and managing director of Nu-Pure, a bottled water manufacturing business which produces about 120 million bottles each year of spring water.
“The weather here in Currumbin is glorious in winter come spring,” Ms Holmes said.
“Spring always brings smiles, happiness and the sun and people go towards the beach.
“All those things were thought through when putting our house on the market.”
Their award-winning hilltop house at 4 Duringan St has a curved copper clad facade and panoramic views of Currumbin Creek, the ocean and rainforest.
Ms Holmes said the house was beautiful year-round but said the sunsets were a little more spectacular as the weather warmed.
“Currumbin no matter what season, it’s a beautiful area to live in,” she said.
“Our outdoor living area, we call it the top deck, at any time of the day you can go out and enjoy it and read a book.
“Or you can have 40 people there and entertain the night away with the sun going down.”
The family are selling to move closer to their children’s school.
The seven-bedroom house is on the market through Kollosche’s Michael Kollosche and Eoghan Murphy with an expressions-of-interest campaign closing September 11.
