STAMP HOUSE SELLS

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

STAMP col­lec­tor Rod Perry has sold his prized Far North home to an Aus­tralian in­vestor. A deal was struck just be­fore the Cape Tribu­la­tion prop­erty, known as “Alkira” or “The Stamp House”, was due to be auc­tioned on the Gold Coast yes­ter­day. It ended a lengthy sale process dur­ing which the prop­erty’s price tag fluc­tu­ated from $15 mil­lion to $8.8 mil­lion, be­fore the own­ers fi­nally de­cided to auc­tion the home. Nei­ther the buyer’s iden­tity nor the prop­erty sell­ing price have been dis­closed. While happy with the out­come, Mr Perry said he had mixed emo­tions about say­ing good­bye to Alkira. “You put your heart and soul into these things, so it leaves a pretty empty feel­ing when it’s all over,” he said.
