Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - Property - - FRONT PAGE -

IT’S been a big week for Gold Coast real es­tate with sev­eral multi-mil­lion dol­lar prop­erty sales.

The big­gest was an Isle of Capri man­sion, snapped up for $8.8 mil­lion in a se­cret sale.

It took less than one week for en­tre­pre­neur­ial busi­ness­man David Baird and his wife Mar­ion’s prop­erty at 31-33 The Corso, Surfers Par­adise, to be sold to an Asian buyer. “Fol­low­ing the sale of this house we will be mov­ing to Par­adise Wa­ters,” Mr Baird, a re­tired cor­po­rate ex­ec­u­tive, said.

“We didn’t have the house on the mar­ket but it sold within a week. It was a very quick sale and we are happy with the out­come.”

Ray White Broad­beach agent Sam Guo han­dled the sale.

He said the Isle of Capri prop­erty was in one of the best po­si­tions on the Gold Coast.

“It faces due north and it has a wa­ter view to Adam’s Basin,” Mr Guo said.

“This is ar­guably the best po­si­tion in this pocket. It’s a beau­ti­ful and such a solid sus­pended con­crete home with im­mense style and of grand pro­por­tions.”

Mean­while, an ul­tra-mod­ern house at 2623 Vir­ginia Drive, Hope Is­land, sold for $5.05 mil­lion.

It is on a 1000 sqm of land with 20 me­tres of wa­ter frontage which over­looks the Ma­rina Har­bour. Out­doors is an en­ter­tain­ment area with a built in bar­be­cue kitchen which over­looks the swim­ming pool and a 14-me­tre pon­toon.

In­side are four bed­rooms — the main bed­room has an en­suite and large walk-in wardrobe. It was listed for sale through Rita Na, of Hope Is­land Re­sort Realty

The Coast also hosted a crack­ing mid­week auc­tion when a re­sort-style trop­i­cal hide­away sold un­der the ham­mer for $3.7 mil­lion.

The prop­erty at 11 Jarema Drive, Mudgeer­aba, which fea­tured on the cover of the Gold Coast Bul­letin real es­tate magazine, was snapped up by a lo­cal fam­ily.

From a ten­nis court, lap pool, spa, soc­cer field to a built-in aquar­ium, bil­liard room, gym and cin­ema, their mega man­sion is more re­sort-like than house.

Ka­t­rina Walsh of Har­courts Coastal took the prop­erty to auc­tion.
