Great Barrier Reef Dream Home

Ah … an infinity pool with a Great Barrier Reef view. This is living!

If you’ve ever dreamed about living by a coral reef, it doesn’t get better than this.

Here is an aerial view of the massive 75 acre estate.  On one side of your 14,500 ft2 palace: a lush tropical forest inhabited by wallabies and exotic birds.  On the other side: the Great Barrier Reef stretching out into the big blue turquoise Pacific!  Coral bommies are literally at your doorstep.  And of course like any seaside mega-estate, you have your tennis court, helipad, boat slipway, dual spas and gymnasium.



When we say Heaven’s Gate is secluded, we mean it.  The estate is located on beautiful, undeveloped land.  No pesky neighbors or tourists will disturb your private paradise.


I can think of no better way to power this house than with the tropical sun.  According to the estate listing:

[Heaven’s Gate] is eco-friendly and self-sufficient. The electricity is produced from solar panels with mains and its own generator as back-up, there is 350,000 litres of rainwater stored in tanks, including 110,000 litres of high level gravity fed water storage and 2 bores and a private well. All grey and waste water is automatically pumped from its own eco septic system on to the vegetable garden.

Outdoor entertaining decks abound throughout the estate.



Hello private beach.



Bedroom suites overlook the Great Barrier Reef.  Imagine waking up to the view every morning!



The seller is nice enough to include two Honda dirt motorcycles and quad ATVs in the $10,000,000 asking price.  Hey!  It’s not easy filling a 10 car garage.



A few more photos of Heaven’s Gate, including a home theater room, Japanese-inspired courtyard, modern kitchen and baths, and an expansive “great room.”  But let’s be honest: who’s going to spend much time indoors with the GBR beckoning right outside?
