A coastal-inspired design is always in style. Pair organic materials with a light, warm palette, and you’ve got summer within your walls. Harmoni on Hythe, a stunning collection of just four townhomes on the Gold Coast, does coastal design to a tee. We talked to the project’s developer to discover how they did so.

Located in beautiful, laidback Miami, sandwiched between Burleigh and Mermaid Beach, Harmoni on Hythe is just footsteps from the beach. This exclusive collection of four-bedroom townhomes fosters the coastal perfect lifestyle with its address alone. Yet, developer Highlife Homes takes it a step further with a gorgeous coastal design, ensuring beachside living indoors.

“The coastal façade and interior inspiration were drawn straight from the panoramic viewings surrounding the homes,” affirmed James MacQueen, Lead Sales Agent at Highlife Homes.

“The goal was not to build something that stands out; instead, it was to build something that looks as beautiful as the coast it’s built upon.”

Boasting incredible sea views, each of Harmoni’s four townhouses has been meticulously designed by Highlife Homes – both developer and designer of the project. These coastal residences, with generously sized four-storey floorplans, are the pinnacle of beachside living. Three of them feature a private elevator for utmost convenience and privacy.

Building on Harmoni’s surroundings, the development is forged with organic-inspired materials designed to evoke a relaxing, timeless aesthetic.

James detailed, “The white sand render beautifully reflects the coastal beachscape below it, the stone cladding draws influence from the nearby headland visible from the rooftop terrace, and the vertical timber battens tips a nod to the surrounding hinterland views to the west, covering 50% of the Gold Coast.”

Boasting stunning ocean views, the team astutely designed each home to highlight these vistas, with spaces perfect for entertaining loved ones at weekends or relaxing as the sun sets with a drink.

“The seaview rooftop entertaining space with outdoor kitchen, bar fridge, and en-suited rooftop studio/bedroom was non-negotiable,” James revealed.

“It is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the beachside living.”

“The flexible fourth bedroom, situated on the rooftop, can be utilised as an extra living space, home office, gym, or music and art room with the benefit of an ensuite and beautiful views.”

Complete with east-facing balconies and rooftop terraces, outdoor spaces at Harmoni will maximise morning sunlight as the sun rises over the ocean – the perfect way to start your days.

Further building on its close proximity to the coast, Harmoni’s design caters to beach lovers with outdoor showers to wash off after a dip in the sea, as well as a storeroom to store surfboards and beach toys.

“We are designing lifetime homes as well as lifestyle homes,” James explained.

“For example, the private lifts were expensive to construct but absolutely essential in order to be a lifetime home.

“With Miami Beach having such a long average homeownership compared to nearby suburbs, once people settle here, they rarely move on.

“It was imperative that the homes can facilitate everyone, couples, families, and those looking to retire and enjoy a slower pace.”
