AN interstate family has hit the jackpot after snapping up a former Gold Coast prize home.
While they didn’t win the million-dollar Broadbeach Waters house, it would be the one that fulfilled their dream of living on the Coast.
The Chinese family from Victoria made a cash unconditional offer within a week of the Nootka Court property hitting the market this month.
Ray White Broadbeach agent Jamie Harrison, who handled the sale with agency principal Mitch Palmer, said it sold for $1.635 million before it was officially opened to the public.
“We had five groups through it and that was even before the first open home,” he said.
“(The buyers) wanted to snap it up before the first official open home.
“It was only on the market five days.”

He had been working with the buyers to find a family home in the area when they asked about the waterfront property.
He said they wanted to move to the Coast for the sunshine and lifestyle.
“They really like the accessibility to the main river too,” Mr Harrison said.
Italian stone kitchen benchtops, a built-in wetbar, pool, floating pontoon and water views are among the standout features of the house, which was built in 2016.
It was a prize home in the RSL Art Union Lottery last year.
Mr Harrison said the winners sold the property because they wanted a holiday house closer to home in regional NSW.
“They were looking to buy something on the central coast, somewhere that was a bit closer for them,” he said.
