Own some GC his­tory

Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - - NEWS -

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.

The Veivers’ Benowa home is go­ing to auc­tion.
