Photos | Palazzo - Bella casa on the bay

“An exclusive waterfront setting, spectacular architecture, opulent accommodation, a design distinguished by Versace bespoke furnishings and Italian craftsmanship, and an ambience of pure glamour.” 

This is, in fact, the introduction you’ll find on the website of the Gold Coast’s Palazzo Versace hotel but it works equally well to describe a two-storey waterfront residence of the same name that has come on the market at Sandringham.

Straddling a double block on the shores of Botany Bay, the Italianate family home is a homage to all things Versace and comes complete with Versace furnishings. 

Agent Grant Dale from Unique Estates said Palazzo is a “one-of-a-kind property” that must be seen to be believed.

“Undoubtedly the stand-out feature of this property is the level of detail and craftsmanship,’’ Dale said.

‘‘It’s rare to find this level of finishes outside of a six-star hotel.

‘‘There has been strong local interest in the property supported by a number of international lines of enquiry’’.

The four bedroom, five bathroom home took three years for master builders to complete.

And it’s easy to see why. Cross the threshold into the double-height marble foyer and you are greeted by stunning crystal chandaliers and a soaring decorative ceiling with ornate glass dome. 

Palazzo’s finishes include hand-crafted artisan parquetry floors and 24-carat gold-plated mosaic tiles in the infinity-edge pool and spa.

There is also a rooftop plunge pool with hand-crafted mural backdrop, a karaoke-theatre room and bar in the basement.

The Ida Street home commands some of the area’s best water views – gaze east over peaceful Botany Bay towards Towra Point Nature Reserve.

The asking price for a home of such palatial proportions? You can start negotiating around the $9 million mark.
