A COOLAN­GATTA pen­t­house with panoramic ocean, sky­line and Hin­ter­land views has sold un­der the ham­mer for more than $3 mil­lion.

The Ca­lypso Tow­ers sky­home at 88 Marine Pde went to auc­tion last week­end, fetch­ing $3.35 mil­lion.

Ray White Broad­beach – Mer­maid Wa­ters agents Sam Guo and Ju­lia Kuo mar­keted the apart­ment, which is on the 20th and 21st floors.

Mr Guo said an in­ter­state buyer snapped up the prop­erty.

“They did the inspection with me and they looked at it re­ally thor­oughly,” Mr Guo said.

He said the auc­tion was well at­tended, with plenty of spec­ta­tors watch­ing the sale un­fold.

“We had 30 to 40 peo­ple and three reg­is­tered bid­ders,” Mr Guo said.

“The bid­ding kicked off at $3 mil­lion. I think both par­ties are re­ally happy.”

Mr Guo de­scribed the lux­ury res­i­dence as one that “re­de­fines so­phis­ti­cated sky­home liv­ing” with an “ar­ray of be­spoke, cus­tomised fin­ishes”. These in­clude im­ported an­tique wooden doors, hand-se­lected 200-year-old re­claimed pol­ished hard­wood floors and mar­ble, gran­ite and stain­less-steel fea­tures through­out.

The apart­ment has an open floor­plan with a lounge and fam­ily room at its heart.

This opens onto the main bal­cony, which wraps around the build­ing and over­looks the ocean.

Each of the three bed­rooms have en­suites and ac­cess to one of the prop­erty’s five bal­conies.

The up­stairs en­ter­tain­ing re­treat with kitch­enette and ac­cess to two bal­conies is a stand­out fea­ture.

Coolan­gatta is one of the Gold Coast’s sub­urbs that is con­tin­u­ing to grow.
