If you’ve always quite fancied the idea of popping down to the country club like they do in ‘The OC’, Riverstone Crossing on ‘The Gold Coast’ could be your next address.
A cruisy 25 minutes from the Gold Coast’s glorious Main Beach, nestled in a picturesque green valley on the banks of the Coomera River, you’ll find Riverstone Crossing (which even sounds like it’s straight from a TV script).
It’s also where you’ll find Endeavour Foundation’s stunning $1.4 million New Year Prize Home.
Indeed, the location scouts have nailed it this time. With gorgeous hinterland views, the theme parks just up the road and the famous Gold Coast strip ‘just over there’, it’s the kind of location screenwriters daydream.
But what really adds to the Orange County vibes, is the exclusive, residents-only ‘Riverhouse’ rec club you’ll be able to join thanks to your Riverstone Crossing address.
At the Riverhouse Lifestyle Centre, as it’s officially known, as a resident of Riverstone Crossing, you’ll have exclusive member access to a vast array of beautifully maintained facilities including a fully-equipped gym, 25-metre lap pool and sauna. All the inspiration you need to keep up your morning fitness ritual…or possibly get one started? You know what they say, it’s never too late.
There’s also a second recreational pool (perfect for weekend fun with friends) and then, of course, there’s your own sparkling pool – complete with waterfall feature – back at the Prize Home. After all, it’s good to have options in life.
What’s really nice about the Riverhouse is the sense of community it creates.
This contemporary, architecturally-designed complex makes a fabulous place to meet up with friends and family or host an impressive gathering to remember. Residents can access indoor or outdoor entertaining areas and barbeque facilities and can even reserve areas for special occasions.
Just near the Riverhouse, there’s also a couple of tennis courts for you to practice your strokes, give the kids some pointers, or even challenge the neighbours. Imagine just being able to stroll down to ‘the club’ for a game whenever you feel like it – tennis whites optional. No need for court fees, you’re already members.
The whole community has been designed to make it easy to live a fit and healthy lifestyle. As well as having access to the Riverhouse facilities, residents of the 194-hectare Riverstone Crossing community can take advantage of extensive walking and cycling tracks, public parks, scooter and bicycle tracks, sporting fields and direct access to the Coomera River.
There aren’t many places where you can access so much without even leaving your estate.
Another thing residents can enjoy at Riverstone Crossing is security and peace of mind. The estate has a 24-hour security patrol to keep an eye on everything and there’s even a community maintenance team to ensure everything is looking ship shape.
All things considered, you get a lot for the $2,385.51 annual body corporate fee (as at June 2021), especially when you consider that you won’t need to pay for gym memberships anymore.
Better still, if you’re the winner of this amazing Riverstone Crossing home, Endeavour Foundation has got it covered for the next two years so you won’t even have to think about it until 2024. So in the meantime, all you’ll have to worry about is your serve.
If you’re sold on the idea of the Riverhouse being your ‘local’, make sure you buy your ticket in Endeavour Foundation’s New Year Prize Home lottery.
