Swimming superstar Sam Riley has sold her Burleigh Waters property.
The outdoor entertaining area.
It was taken to auction twice by two different agencies before Katrina Walsh of Harcourts Coastal managed to find a buyer.
“The buyer came through week one of the campaign I had,” Ms Walsh said.
“They wanted to sell their property before committing to buying another property.
“They looked at property across the Coast but kept coming back to this property as it has a very homely feel to it.
“They actually inspected it four times.”

Ms Walsh said Ms Riley was happy with the sale price in the current market.
CoreLogic property records show Ms Riley and husband Tim Fydler, who have three sons, bought their 1370sq m Burleigh Waters property for $1.25 million in 2006.
Over the years the family made “lifestyle” changes, adding in a gym, crisp white designer kitchen, a butlers pantry, solar panels, a barbecue area and revamped every bathroom bar one.
