Almost all the best homes on Tamborine Mountain are hidden from view on acreage along the eastern cliff edge between Curtis Road and St Bernards Hotel, a strip of country that is often referred to as “The Hollywood Hills” of the Gold Coast . “Mandeville” is located not too far south of Curtis Road on this prime real estate location and enjoys both the glorious views and the privacy that has earned this area its justified reputation.

This grand, 65 square (604 square metre) home and its magnificent garden were created by renown Brisbane interior decorator Peter Weaver in 1993. Peter was also a licensed builder and he was the contracted supervising builder to Mt. Tamborine’s grandest solid sandstone home. Both Peter & Mrs Weaver were very keen gardeners with a great love of both Alpine and tropical plants, especially camellias which were planted in profusion in the various gardens they created over the many years of living on Mt. Tamborine. There will never be a single day in the year when there is not something flowering in this garden. Mrs. Weaver always insisted on having fresh picked flowers available for indoors, no matter what the season, and shrubs were planted to satisfy her requirement. When they started here, there was already a row of pines up the northern boundary fence. The pines were matched by a row of Jacarandahs on the southern side of the bitumen driveway which leads up and over the rise to the home that is is totally invisible from Long Road.

“Mandeville” reflects the Weaver style with 9 foot ceilings, ornate cornices, ceiling roses, wide hallways with parquet flooring, attractive double doors leading into most rooms and extensive wall areas of glass with many double hung windows as well as sliding doors opening out to the long back verandah. The large granite and solid timber kitchen is still absolutely perfect and one can see no good reason to even consider updating the perfectly chosen and undoubtedly imported light fittings, the wonderful draperies or the bathrooms. The initial quality could leave nothing to be desired and outstanding good taste is indeed timeless.

This is a home designed for entertaining on the grand scale with vast formal lounge and huge separate dining both focusing on the views out over the verandah and through the gardens right out to the Gold Coast and ocean. Both the family room and rumpus are also very large, and the family room opens directly out onto the verandah for easy informal entertaining. The land extends well beyond where the back lawn blends into rainforest and this ensure that the owners can retain those views until the end of time.

The master suite occupies the entire southern end of the home and like the rest of the home, was designed to take full advantage of the views. It includes a massive dressing room for the lady of the house plus a walk-in robe for the gentleman. It also features a large bathroom with floor to ceiling marble tiling, gold tap ware, a shower recess, step-up spa bath and a separate toilet. There is a guest suite with large bedroom, walk-in robe and ensuite bathroom plus 2 more large bedrooms with built-in robes. The study, which is located near the entry foyer, features parquet flooring and looks out into the front garden.

The property includes 3 garages, an in-ground pool, tennis court and a good water bore. The water from the bore is reticulated around the property to ensure that all the garden can be kept at its best through drier periods. Very attractive outdoor / garden lighting and security lighting plus security screening and an electronic security system are all installed here as well as an intercom system.

“Mandeville” can be purchased alone on its 2 hectare garden or with an adjoining 1.28 hectare fenced horse paddock that does not have any Coast views but is still a most attractive home site and can be built on separately without infringing on the real privacy of “Mandeville”
