LUXURY boat broker Grant Torrens has sold his family’s Gold Coast mega mansion in a deal worth more than $9 million.
His son Mitchell Grant Torrens said the extravagant Sovereign Islands property sold through their brokerage company Torrens Luxury Collection.
While the sale price hasn’t been disclosed, it is understood Villa Blue Waters sold for more than $9 million with a superyacht included in the sale.
The property, which regularly features throughout Mr Torrens’ Instagram account, comes with a 60m concrete, commercial-grade pontoon that can take a 200ft yacht among its luxury features.
“It’s got the biggest residential pontoon in Australia for a superyacht,” Mr Torrens said.
After buying 3 Brittanic Cres in 2013 for $3.45 million, the Torrens family spent a small fortune rebuilding it from scratch.
Some of the fixtures included Swarovski crystal doorknobs and 24-carat gold Versace tapware.
The residence comes with a commercial-size granite cocktail bar, Italian marble entertaining area and teppanyaki cabana centred around a resort-style, pool and spa.
“The family home has been such a gathering spot for us to entertain family, friends and VIP clients,” Mr Torrens said.
One of the garages even features black marble floor tiles and is purely for displaying luxury cars.
Villa Blue Waters has also been used for photos shoots for fashion labels Camilla and Versace and was on Foxtel’s I Own Australia’s Best Homes.
Mr Torrens said his family had already moved out of the property they had called home for the past five years.
“It hasn’t really felt like it’s happening,” he said.
“Normally we celebrate Christmas there so it’s a bit of an airy feeling.”
Villa Blue Waters, which has 1950sq m of land and 59m of water frontage, first hit the market in 2016 and has been on and off ever since.
The highest sale on the Sovereign Islands is $11.05 million for a property at Sir Lancelot Close that changed hands this year.
A beachfront mansion at Mermaid Beach that sold for $12 million holds the 2018 highest sale crown.
