STAMP HOUSE SELLS
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.
