Own some GC history
HOUSE hunters will be given the chance to snap up a piece of Gold Coast history this weekend when two heritage homes go under the hammer.
One of the properties belongs to former National Party Minister and Australian rugby league player Mick Veivers and his wife Betty, who was a prominent Gold Coast teacher and champion golfer.
After living in their Benowa house for 36 years, the couple have decided it’s time to downsize.
“It’s lovely and it overlooks the park, it’s just that it’s a bit big,” said Mr Veivers, the former Member for Southport.
The four-bedroom, twobathroom house at 14 Evans Dve sits on a 1252sq m block.
The house will go to auction tomorrow at noon.
A Palm Beach property owned by the same family for more than 60 years is also going under the hammer this weekend.
Jim and Nell Snee moved into the house at 1048-1050 Gold Coast Hwy in 1956.
The couple’s grandson Michael Snee said they bought the beach house to retire in.
“The Gold Coast Highway was just a two-lane highway,” he said.
It will go to auction today at 11am.
