Buyers quick to secure $6m gem


AN epic new build on the Gold Coast has sold in a deal worth $5.995m. Kooringal Lodge at Tallebudge­ra made national headlines when it hit the market in late September.

The property, which combines alpine cabin architectu­re and mid-century modernism, was one of the most viewed properties on realestate.com.au during the week it launched.

Sellers Paul and Nicki Harms are the brains behind the residence and said they were “over the moon” with the result.

“We’re thrilled, to be honest,” Mrs Harms said. “It was a great marketing campaign – 30 days on the market which is pretty short for something that is pretty unique.”

The buyers are from northern NSW and made their offer within 30 minutes of touring the property. There were also three other offers on the table.

“It just shows there are buyers out there if you’ve got the right product in the right area,” Mr Harms said. “We had the right block, an amazing designer on board, and Nicky did all the interiors.

“It’s really a team effort from having the right block, to your team and all of your consultant­s. Then it’s having the right marketing – ours couldn’t have gone any better. We are super happy with the results.”

The couple, who had John Fischer and Shelley Watkins of PRD Burleigh market their property, paid $1.29m for the block in March 2021.

The house was created by Reece Keil Design and brought to life by Mr Harms’ Gold Coast-based constructi­on company PJH Constructi­ons.

“We saw that block was on the market and we thought it was pretty special so we decided to go for it,” Mrs Harms said.

“Being secluded and on an acre block that was still close to the beach, we thought we would be able to sell what we built on it.”

The house is on a 5773sq m block and blends beautifull­y with its surroundin­gs.

The four-bedroom house at 30 Kooringal Court features a combinatio­n of timber, black and stone. Standout features include a separate studio, pool, glass wine cellar, timber staircase and sunken firepit.

The Harms’ next project, in Burleigh Heads’ Koala Park, is set to hit the market next month.
