A HAMP­TONS-style Broad­beach Wa­ters house that last changed hands be­tween a Gold Coast real es­tate agent and a Fed­eral MP, has sold for mil­lions of dol­lars prior to auc­tion.

The mul­ti­mil­lion-dol­lar sale of sprawl­ing water­front sanc­tu­ary ‘North­cove’ came about af­ter the new buy­ers no­ticed the prop­erty fea­tured in the lat­est Gold Coast Bulletin’s Realestate.

Sell­ing agent Jack­son Par­adise of Ray White Pres­tige Gold Coast said the Syd­ney buy­ers were in Palm Beach to look at an apart­ment when they “were read­ing the pa­per and saw the Savoy Drive prop­erty”.

“They’re go­ing to live in the home, it’s a young fam­ily,” Mr Par­adise said.

“It’s a fan­tas­tic re­sult for the area and buyer and seller are ex­tremely happy.”

The prop­erty was sched­uled to go to auc­tion on De­cem­ber 16, and it proved pop­u­lar with 75 in­spec­tions held over one week­end.

It now holds the record of second high­est sale in Broad­beach Wa­ters this year.

In other news, the Bit­coin trend has cer­tainly hit the Gold Coast. In a first for the city, David Jenk­ins and his wife San­dra listed their Sov­er­eign Is­lands man­sion us­ing the dig­i­tal cur­rency.

The pair put their home at 64 The Sov­er­eign Mile up for sale for 500 Bit­coin.

“Peo­ple had men­tioned Bit­coin over the years and I didn’t know any­thing about it,” Mr Jenk­ins said. “When I ended up look­ing into it I re­alised it was a pretty good op­por­tu­nity so I be­come in­volved.”

How­ever, he ad­mit­ted that Bit­coin’s fluc­tu­at­ing value made his de­ci­sion a risky one.

Later in the week a second Gold Coast man­sion hit the mar­ket for Bit­coin. The lat­est list­ing is a Surfers Par­adise water­front prop­erty that’s on the mar­ket through Kol­losche Pres­tige Agents for 475 Bit­coin.

82-84 Savoy Drive, Broad­beach Wa­ters has changed hands for a mul­ti­mil­lion-dol­lar fig­ure.
