For Sale - Off-grid, luxury floating apartment on the Gold Coast (Australia).

Categories: Homes / Dwellings

Ultimate "beach front" property, let me rephrase that... The property is on the water by the beach. Recently built with all the amenities anyone would want, totally off the grid.

‘Reflection’ is a luxury floating home that was launched in June 2014. She has been meticulously designed to allow a life of comfortable off-grid living on the Gold Coast’s Broadwater. For about 10 months of the year all the electrical needs are supplied using 18 Solar Panels and a high quality wind turbine. For the remaining two months in the middle of winter, it might be necessary to run a generator for about 5-10 hours a week, but often not at all – just depending on the weather.

Fresh water is made using a desalination plant (Reverse Osmosis) which turns 120 litres of seawater into high quality drinking water per hour. All the creature comforts you’ve been used to at home are here; stone benchtops, dishwasher, washing machine, clothes dryer, ice-maker and two fridges, 2 televisions, upstairs cinema projector, microwave, electric roller blinds, oven and 4 burner stove, gas hot water on demand. There is is also plenty of renewable electricity to use appliances such as laptops, printers, hair dryers, vacuum cleaners, coffee makers, juicers and even the popcorn maker!

Downstairs the House has a Kitchen, Alfresco Dining, Bathroom, Laundry, Lounge, Master Bedroom, Guest Bedroom and a Front Deck.

Upstairs the first half of the top deck is under cover, and features the helm station, BBQ with stone bench tops and sink with hot and cold water. There is also a beer fridge, stereo controls/speakers, Jabsco fresh water wash-down outlet, and a large 9 person lounge suite.

The lounge really is big and allows plenty of room to stretch out when watching movies on the 100 inch fold down projector screen. The projector screen is custom-made from powder coated aluminium (as opposed to being an inexpensive retractable screen). The reason for this, is so that you can watch movies even if you have the clears rolled up letting the breeze through – without blowing the screen around.

It runs on Solar, Wind and it has a battery system as well as fresh and salt water systems.

The anchor and the safety equipment supersedes the standard code regulations. there is room for entertainment and internet access throughout & office.

Runs on LPG Gas and has a BBQ.
