It’s going to be the hardest thing to do.” Burgess now runs her own entertainment production company.

Burgess owns the property with internationally acclaimed acrobat and husband Ben Hur Nicolodi. It has some of the best views on the Gold Coast.“Perched up here on the mountain, we have 210 degrees worth of views — the views are without a word of a lie the best on the Gold Coast,” Burgess said. “It’s sort of a mix of our two personalities, I have a love for all things rustic and my husband loves all things contemporary.” The Moulin Rouge wonder couple met and headlined in Paris for 18 years and despite their extravagant lives, they always had a dream to build a home in the Hinterland. “When we were working at Moulin Rouge in our later years we got to visiting Australia and we decided to come back here,” Burgess said. “We found the land but it wasn’t for sale. We went back to Paris and started to design a house, Ben was doing a floorplan and I was doing the interior design.“We were literally designing a house for a block of land we didn’t have.” When the 1.01ha block came up for sale, the pair quickly pounced and starting building not long after. The floorplan was designed to maximise the picturesque vistas while also catering to entertaining and working from home. She has a more rustic style whereas Nicolodi loves all things contemporary. They started designing their dream home before they even bought the land. The 1.01ha block wasn’t on the market the first time the couple came across it.More from news02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa9 hours ago02:37Gold Coast property: Sovereign Islands mega mansion hits market with $16m price tag1 day ago“On all accounts, to us this house is perfect,” she said. “We just want to have a change now.
