Drink in the view at Pask’s old pad

Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - - NEWS - ALEISHA DAW­SON aleisha.daw­son@news.com.au

THE Gold Coast sub-pent­house the late bil­lion­aire Nev Pask lived in for nearly 30 years is set to go un­der the ham­mer next month.

Mr Pask, 87, who passed away in Fe­bru­ary, bought his Main Beach apart­ment in 1989. He used the 485sq m res­i­dence on the 15th level of the Sil­ver­point tower as his fam­ily base.

“This apart­ment is a one off – made for the fam­ily as a spe­cial re­quest,” said Ray White Surfers Par­adise’s Robert Gra­ham, who is mar­ket­ing the prop­erty.

“The fam­ily iden­ti­fied Sil­ver­point as the build­ing for them and had the de­vel­oper cre­ate the res­i­dence.”

“Usu­ally sub-pent­houses are re­served on the higher floors and they can some­times feel dis­con­nected and out of touch be­ing so high.”

Mr Pask’s four-bed­room apart­ment fea­tures bal­conies from ev­ery room with a 360de­gree view of the Gold Coast as well as a bar and three sep­a­rate liv­ing ar­eas.

“There are only a hand­ful of apart­ments on the whole Coast that can boast four bed­rooms that oc­cupy an en­tire floor,” Mr Gra­ham said.

“As his­tory has shown it will prob­a­bly be some time be­fore an­other one like this be­comes avail­able.

“They just don’t make them like this any­more.”

Some of the city’s top busi­ness iden­ti­ties own prop­er­ties in the pres­ti­gious build­ing, they in­clude “high­rise hon­cho” Harry Triguboff and Aussie Home Loans CEO James Sy­mond.

Dur­ing a busi­ness ca­reer that spanned six decades, Mr Pask built a prop­erty and de­vel­op­ment em­pire es­ti­mated to be worth $1.02 bil­lion. His ca­reer as a prop­erty de­vel­oper be­gan when he started buy­ing, ren­o­vat­ing and sell­ing old homes.

Mr Pask went on to de­velop more than 2000 hous­ing blocks, apart­ments, car yards and other com­mer­cial sites through­out Queens­land and Mel­bourne.

The sub-pent­house at 28/3510 Main Beach Pde, Main Beach, will be auc­tioned next month; the lux­ury apart­ment was owned by late bil­lion­aire Nev Pask (be­low).
