Sale a soaring success
A magnificently sophisticated skyhome at Coolangatta has changed hands for $3.35m
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.
CoreLogic data to the year ending January 2018 shows the median price for a house has jumped 52 per cent in the past five years to $955,000 while the median for units has increased 28 per cent to $500,500.
