A Hamptons-inspired mansion on The Sovereign Islands has fetched $7 million after hitting the market almost 200 days ago.
A Chinese buyer from New Zealand plans to use the lavish four-storey abode as their holiday home.
The deal is the second highest sale inked on the Gold Coast this year, following the $7.5 million sale of a Broadbeach Waters mega mansion last month.
Amir Mian Prestige Property agent Ivy Wu said the seven-figure sale of the waterfront home at 45 Knightsbridge Pde West set a record price for a house on a single block on The Sovereign Islands.
“The buyer walked in and said ‘wow’, they fell in love with the property and its one-of-a-kind entrance,” Ms Wu said.
“It has the grand entrance with 13m-high ceilings and a chandelier.
“And the buyer loved the top level entertainment area — it ticked every box.”
The luxurious property hit the market in August last year with an $8.5 million asking price.
Previous owners Gary and Tina Brewster purchased the 742sq m block for $1.34 million in 2011 before transforming it into the ultimate dream home in 2017.
It was completed in early 2018.
Mr Brewster, a builder, designed and built the home while his wife was responsible for the interior.
With a no-expense-spared approach, the house features five ensuited bedrooms plus a top level main bedroom, a home theatre, gym, steam room and a bar and lounge area that overlooks the rooftop heated pool and spa.
Mr Brewster told the Bulletin in September that the home was based around the entry foyer.
“One of the main features is the light feature in the entry,” Mr Brewster said.
“We’ve pushed the boundaries on a few houses before — I’ve done a big water feature with massive sheets of glasses in other entries but I wanted to do something different and I didn’t just want a chandelier.
“It lights up the entire house. I haven’t seen anything like it before.”
A 10-car basement garage, lift, pontoon and multiple outdoor areas to capture stunning views of Broadwater and Hinterland were also part of the impressive package.
