Ex­pect a princely sum

The Courier-Mail - Property - - Who’shome -

AN eight-bed­room, eight-bath­room Gold Coast home which was orig­i­nally built for a Malaysian prince is set to go un­der the ham­mer to­day.

The two-storey ‘‘palace’’ at Fyfes Rd, Gil­ston, was pur­pose-built for Prince Ab­dul­lah as his Aus­tralian hide­away and was a replica of one of his fam­ily’s palaces in Malaysia.

The home backs on to the Grand Golf Club in the Gold Coast hin­ter­land. The main house has four bed­rooms while the ad­join­ing ser­vants’ quar­ters has an­other four.

Mar­ket­ing agent Lucy Cole said there was a gam­ing room, which re­sem­bled a gen­tle­man’s club, a large lounge and a gym­na­sium with male and fe­male bath­rooms.

The home, which was built in the 1980s, is on 2.2ha.

There is also a re­sort-style pool with a slip­pery slide and a sta­ble which has been con­verted to a work shed. Prop­erty records re­veal it was bought by Narelle Gilby and Robert Nor­ris in 2010 for $1.95 mil­lion.
