Family pounce on buy
A Sydney couple has found a new home, paying big dollars for a luxury canal-front property at Broadbeach Waters
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.
