SEV­ERAL multi-mil­lion dol­lar sales have been se­cured across the Gold Coast in what is shap­ing up to be a bumper Jan­uary for the mar­ket. Ka­t­rina Walsh of Har­courts Coastal re­ported a $3.25 mil­lion sale in Mer­maid Beach ear­lier this week.

She said a Cen­tral Coast de­vel­oper snapped up the three-bed­room pent­house at 11/2 Lavarack Rd af­ter the sweep­ing ocean views cap­tured his in­ter­est. The prop­erty didn’t sell un­der the ham­mer but was sold shortly af­ter.

“The auc­tion cam­paign at­tracted the buyer in week one of the cam­paign,” Ms Walsh said. “The buyer did not at­tend the auc­tion but ne­go­ti­ated di­rectly af­ter.”

It fol­lows the $7.7 mil­lion sale of a Surfers Par­adise man­sion at 14 Ad­mi­ralty Drive last week. Michael Kol­losche of Kol­losche Pres­tige Agents mar­keted the prop­erty as be­ing “lo­cated on quiet six-knot river in­let with panoramic city views, main liv­ing area with open fire­place, high ceil­ings, glossy tim­ber floors, in­door and out­door liv­ing ar­eas on each level”.

In other news, AFL su­per­star Gary Ablett has put his sprawl­ing Ash­more prop­erty on the mar­ket. It is un­der­stood he is look­ing to down­size from his 3342sq m res­i­dence but plans to re­main on the Coast.

Records show Ablett bought his prop­erty in 2011 for $1.8 mil­lion, shortly af­ter he joined the Gold Coast Suns.

A la­goon-style pool, Bali hut, ten­nis court and pon­toon are among its lux­ury fea­tures.

Mean­while, Ray White Broad­beach’s hosted a party on Wed­nes­day night at their Alta res­i­dences. Alta, at 48-50 Woodroffe Ave, Main Beach in­cludes six three-bed­room apart­ments de­signed for the “down­siz­ing owner-oc­cu­pier”.

De­vel­oped by Wil­man and de­signed by Willem­sen Ar­chi­tec­ture, there are three apart­ments still on the mar­ket.

A Cen­tral Coast de­vel­oper paid $3.25 mil­lion for 11/2 Lavarack Rd, Mer­maid Beach.
