Auc­tion day was just too far away for one very en­thu­si­as­tic buyer who paid mil­lions for a five-bed­room water­front man­sion at Palm Beach

Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - Property - - FRONT PAGE - WORDS ANNA RAWL­INGS AND ALEISHA DAW­SON

A “DREAM home” on a prime water­front block in Palm Beach has been snapped up for a mul­ti­mil­lion-dol­lar sum prior to auc­tion.

The water­front prop­erty sold within two weeks of hit­ting the mar­ket ahead of its sched­uled auc­tion on De­cem­ber 2.

The res­i­dence was on the cover of the Gold Coast Bulletin’s Realestate last week­end.

The five-bed­room, four-bath­room home at Bar­racuda Court was built by ven­dors Ian and Jill Camp­bell.

Ka­t­rina Walsh of Har­courts Coastal mar­keted the prop­erty.

“The pur­chaser wanted to snap up the prop­erty prior to it go­ing to auc­tion,” Ms Walsh said. “They recog­nised the beau­ti­ful prop­erty and put in an of­fer to make sure they owned it.” She de­clined to dis­close the pur­chase price. Prop­erty records show the cou­ple bought the 1085 sq m block in 2008 for $1.25 mil­lion. The Camp­bells told the Bulletin it was their “dream block” af­ter wait­ing 28 years for some­thing like it to be­come avail­able on the point.
