Palmer puts 10 lots at Sea Reef on block

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS - Shane Ni­chols

THE Pink Com­pany Real Estate Port Dou­glas is auc­tion­ing 10 blocks of land in the beau­ti­ful Palmer Sea Reef Golf Estate in Port Dou­glas on Satur­day, April 16 at the Golf Club­house.

The Pink Com­pany has the exclusive agency and were ap­proached by a di­rec­tor of Palmer Leisure Aus­tralia P/L just last Thurs­day and given the au­thor­ity to pro­ceed with the auc­tion.

The 10 blocks are from a stock­pile of 43 owned by the com­pany as part of a pur­chase of 44 when they bought the Palmer Sea Reef prop­erty a few years ago.

McGrath prin­ci­pal Tony McGrath said “we don’t have re­serve prices at this stage; we will get those on the day of the auc­tion.”

“That’s quite nor­mal,” he said. “We don’t want to guessti­mate on prices. It’s a se­ri­ous auc­tion and it’s a se­ri­ous prop­erty.

“I don’t play golf but I could live there. It’s an ex­tremely well de­vel­oped, gated com- mu­nity. Not in a flood zone. Lovely views. You can go to the club and have a drink and walk home – today that’s hard to get. It’s a won­der­ful pri­vate world in there.

“If you want open space around you, this is the place. They’re ab­so­lutely spe­cial blocks and they’re be­ing of­fered in a spe­cial fash­ion, and the in­ten­tion on Satur­day, April 16 is to sell the 10 un­der the ham­mer.

“Global auc­tion­eer Graeme Hen­nessy from Syd­ney will wield the ham­mer and the con­tracts will be signed by the auc­tion­eer when sold.”

The golf course made global head­lines last year af­ter a small crocodile liv­ing at the course nipped a lo­cal golfer who wan­dered too near.
