Film pro­ducer lists at By­ron


By­ron Bay entreprene­ur Matt Bar­relle and wife Cristina are sell­ing their hol­i­day let Beach­comber Blue.

Bar­relle (in­set), best known for pro­duc­ing the pop­u­lar soc­cer tril­ogy Goal, paid $2.35 mil­lion for the in­vest­ment By­ron prop­erty in 2015.

The cou­ple re­cently ac­quired a va­cant land par­cel at Burleigh Heads where they in­tend to build a home where they can raise their kids Blue By­ron and Capri. The co cou­ple are set to re­tain their Brok Bro­ken Head beach­front villa.

The re­dun­dant B Beach­comber Blue p prop­erty, set in an e en­clave of nine be beach­front prop­er­ties, has sev seven bed­rooms, five bathro bath­rooms, four liv­ing ar­eas and two kitchens.

The pet-friendly 1980s built hol­i­day let, which is heav­ily booked, reaps a min­i­mum of $950 a night.

North- and east-fac­ing decks over­look a re­sort-style pool set in land­scaped gar­dens.

The Hamp­tons-style house has price ex­pec­ta­tions of $3.6 mil­lion to $3.8 mil­lion through First Na­tional By­ron Bay agent Su Reynolds, re­flect­ing a 6 per cent gross yield.

Bar­relle’s in­spi­ra­tion for the Goal tril­ogy came from a spec­ta­tor at the 2002 FIFA World Cup.

Bar­relle was also ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer on the of­fi­cial film of the 2006 FIFA World Cup, di­rected by Michael Apted, nar­rated by Pierce Bros­nan.

The for­mer na­tional re­search manger for LJ Hooker has busi­ness in­ter­ests that de­velop trop­i­cal beach and golf re­sorts in the emerg­ing in­ter­na­tional coastal mar­kets. Bar­relle, who spent much of the past decade in Monaco, re­cently sold his Sydney bolt­hole in Dover Heights for $2.76 mil­lion.
