Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - Property - - FRONT PAGE - WORDS JES­SICA BROWN

THE mul­ti­mil­lion-dol­lar sale of a Sov­er­eign Is­lands mega man­sion not only marks the top sale in the past week but the se­cond high­est for its street.

An in­ter­state buyer splashed $5.28 mil­lion on the prop­erty at 16 West­min­ster Court, which set­tled ear­lier this week.

It was snapped up in an off-mar­ket deal through Jef­frey Sturgess and Colleen Brunt of Amir Mian Pres­tige Prop­erty Agents.

Mr Sturgess said they had been help­ing the buy­ers find a prop­erty in the area for the past few years.

“They’d been look­ing on the is­land for quite some time,” he said.

“The owner had a price in mind and we got pretty close to what she was look­ing for.”

The four-storey home was de­signed and built by the owner who, ac­cord­ing to prop­erty records, bought the site in 2006.

Mr Sturgess said she has lived there with her fam­ily since.

He said the buy­ers loved the lux­ury house’s spa­cious and ver­sa­tile floor­plan.

It has five be­d­rooms and mul­ti­ple in­door and out­door liv­ing ar­eas di­vided among the lev­els.

It has a neu­tral pal­ette with mod­ern fixtures and fit­tings and walls of win­dows to make the most of the wa­ter views. “The floor­plan suited them,” he said. “It was re­ally well de­signed. “The house it­self looks straight down the in­ter­nal part of the Broad­wa­ter so the views are spec­tac­u­lar.

“All the rooms ben­e­fit from that view.”

The sale marks the se­cond high­est on West­min­ster Court.

The street’s top sale was set in 2011 when No. 18-20 sold for $8.3 mil­lion.

Amir Mian Pres­tige Prop­erty Agents have recorded a num­ber of mil­lion-dol­lar sales in the past cou­ple of weeks.

A South­port prop­erty at 3 Brighton Parade sold un­der the ham­mer on the week­end for $2.2 mil­lion, as did an Isle of Capri prop­erty at 13 La Spezia Court for $1.58 mil­lion.

The man­sion at 16 West­min­ster Court, Sov­er­eign Is­lands has been snapped up for than $5 mil­lion.
