It’s hard to look at much else in this three-bed apartment besides the views but there is so much more to it than the spectacular Brisbane city panorama it provides.

Agent Sherrie Storor concedes the view is what immediately blows most people away: “The views really are something,” she says. “The city is basically laid out before you, it’s just beautiful. It’s certainly a massive selling point.”

But with those views also comes a spacious, well-designed residence. Located on the seventh floor, it’s one of only five three bedrooms apartments in the building and, crucially, includes three secure car parks.

That said, everything is within walking distance here; the city ferries, Riverwalk, the Story Bridge Hotel, the Brisbane jazz club and the CBD.

Inside, the apartment features open plan living and dining with floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding doors which open out to a substantial balcony. The stone kitchen features quality appliances and the three bedrooms all have built-in robes and balcony access.

Lota is the best kept secret on Brisbane’s bayside, according to local agent Chris Vote, who describes it as the “bridesmaid suburb with the same postcode and potential as Manly”.

And when it comes to Lota’s premier position, this contemporary residence set in the hill side with panoramic views of the bay is one of its best.

“I live nearby and grew up admiring this spot,” Mr Vote says. “It’s so quiet, it’s elevated and there’s great parks for kids one block away. The views ae unbelievable and can never be built out.”

The view is certainly stunning, which the split-level design makes the most of. Beautiful, light interiors are supported by banks of glass and louvres, which admit the year-round breezes off the sea.

Features include a designer kitchen, open plan living and dining, media room, expansive terrace overlooking infinty-edge pool and bay views and master bedroom zone with study niche.

While the house has been positioned to make the most of the views and peaceful locale, the local Royal Yacht Squadron, marinas, cafes and farmers’ markets are all only a short walk away. 16 Corsair Crescent, Sunrise Beach

With 180-degree, never-to-be-built-out ocean views, this family home is no more than a three minute walk to miles of golden sand and a northern beach walk to the Noosa National Park.

Agent Nic Hunter says it’s wonderful for buyers with pets and/or children: “There’s a dog beach right there and you don’t have to cross any main roads to get to the beach, which is a bonus with pets and kids.”

Spread over two levels, there’s enough room upstairs to house the whole family, while a self-contained flat downstairs is perfect for visiting guests or permanent and holiday letting.

Upstairs in the main part of the house, the main living areas are flooded with natural light, thanks to the loft-style ceilings, and each room has been designed to make the most of the views. A large entertaining deck with built-in BBQ overlooks the ocean, while the master bedroom is a true retreat; plush carpets, freestanding bath in the adjoining ensuite and a sunset balcony.

Set on a 607 square metres allotment and only 200 metres from the beach, the property is a short distance from schools, shops and local sporting clubs.

Situated in the highly sought after “Golden Triangle”, this Broadbeach Waters home is majestic in size and scale.

Featuring an open plan living with 5.8-metre high ceilings, the only things that can trump the house itself is the view, so it’s a good thing there’s plenty of it.

Most of the house has been designed to take in the views of the waterway, including the lounge, living room, kitchen and huge master bedroom.

Agent Andrew Ramsay says the property is likely to be in high demand due to its location and aspect.

“It’s a very popular area, particularly the Gold Triangle where this one sits. It’s also on 900 square metres of land,” he says.

Notable features include four bedrooms, tinted windows, blinds and new carpets throughout, swimming pool and private jetty for boating and fishing and outdoor patio with shaded sail.
