Luxury features make palatial Gold Coast home fit for royalty
IT is like stepping inside a modern-day palace.
Through the detailed leadlight front doors, a marble foyer with soaring ceilings, conservatory windows, Roman columns and sparkling chandeliers make a showstopping first impression.
And that’s just the start of the Sorrento house’s grandeur.
A white palette and floor-to-ceiling shear curtains characterise the home, giving it a sense of elegance.
Walls of wide windows and wraparound outdoor areas, up and downstairs, make the most of its 40m of water frontage.
The infinity edge pool curves with the shape of the house.
It is fair to say the multi-level San Remo Blvd home is unlike any other on the Coast.
Owner Natalia Chapman bought the house almost four years ago, according to property records.
It has five bedrooms, five bathrooms and a basement garage that can fit up to six cars.
Several living areas make up the ground floor, all of which are lined by windows that overlook the canal.
The designer kitchen, which has Gaggenau appliances and granite benchtops, is bathed in natural light through more conservatory windows, while a home office with a fireplace on the other side of the house is the perfect retreat.
Upstairs, the main bedroom takes centre stage.
It has a full-length walk-in wardrobe on one side while a spa ensuite runs the length of the other. It opens through sliding glass doors onto a wraparound balcony.

Two additional bedrooms, each with ensuites, have access to the balcony while a fourth bedroom has a spa ensuite.
A basement wine cellar and workshop are also standout features of the home.
Ray White Prestige Gold Coast agent Sherry Smith said it was a classic take on a family home.
“It’s just a very well built house on one of the best streets on the Gold Coast,” she said
“It has quality features and all the bedrooms are super sized with high ceilings.”
Surfers Paradise, world-class beaches, shopping centres and boutique cafes and restaurants are all close by.
The property will go under the hammer on August 1.
