Surf legend Mick Fanning lists Coolangatta apartment block

Surf legend Mick Fanning

Surfing royalty Mick Fanning has listed a Coolangatta apartment block he’s renovated since buying 14 years ago.

Fanning, who stepped away from professional surfing in 2018 having won three world championships over his near two decade professional career, paid $3.1 million for the tired 1980s brick block in 2007.

Now the Boundary Street building has a coastal white facade and each of the units and granny flats have been renovated.

There are two three bedroom apartments, one on the ground level and one on the second level.

Each unit has its own granny flat at the rear of the 505 sqm block. There’s a blank canvas back yard and two garages.

LJ Hooker Palm Beach agents David Lonie and Mishy Canning suggest the building can provide four incomes streams, around $770 to $800 a week for each apartment and $470 to $500 a week for the two granny flats.

Lonie and Canning have a February 7 auction on site at the block which is footsteps to Snapper Rocks. They advise there is potential for separate sales of the apartments.

Fanning will retain a foothold on the street. He owns the block of four two doors down, which he bought for $1.2 million in 2006, and the block next door to that, secured in 2005 for $1.39 million.

Tower reveal: Burleigh Heads set for new Koichi Takada apartment tower by FORME


The local developer Forme are set for their fifth luxury beachfront Gold Coast project.

They’ve submitted plans to the City of Gold Coast council for a 17 level tower of just 30 apartments, designed by the renowned architect Koichi Takada.

It’s the second time Forme have engaged Takada to design, after huge success with their other nearby Burleigh Heads developments Norfolk.

96 The Esplanade, Burleigh Heads QLD 4220 

“Since the scaffold dropped at Norfolk, the building has quickly become an icon” Forme managing director David Calvisi says, with the architecture flooding social media. Even the popular beach photographer Aquabumps have prints available of the iconic facade.

“Norfolk has been a great success and it was important we carried the key elements of its success, mainly via the architecture, through the design at 96 The Esplanade”, Calvisi added.

The new development will home 23 half-floor apartments of around 220 sqm, as well as three full-floor residences with around 440 sqm of space.

Crowning the tower will be a special two level penthouse. Across its 790 sqm floor plate will be a gym, library, theatre and private rooftop pool.

The layouts of all of the apartments have been designed to maximise the views and take in natural light. The open plan living areas typically have bene oriented east to face the ocean, with more private spaces located at the rear of the building.

The Melbourne-based MIM Design is handling the interiors.

The Sydney-based Takada, who is rarely seen on boutique projects, said 96 Esplanade has been the work of the same team as Norfolk on an equally amazing waterfront site.

“Nature inspired architecture and organic curves are designed to maximise views to the ocean and light, capturing the beauty of the Gold Coast and the essence of coastal living,” Takada said.

“A simple and elegant design that is all about celebrating and maximising your connection with nature.The magical experience on this site is the direct connection to the water and the sky – like air, the design features are thin and light, almost invisible.

“The balconies float above the beach, reflecting the soft ripples of the waves below. Expansive balconies celebrate an outdoor lifestyle and open style living. Composed of materials that reference nature, the design is inspired by ripples on water that dissipate over time.”

Grant Hackett’s luxury beach front pad on Gold Coast’s ‘Millionaires’ Row’ hits the market

Grant Hackett

Former Olympian Grant Hackett has listed his luxury beachfront pad on “Millionaires’ Row” on the Gold Coast in the hopes of upsizing in Melbourne.

The three-bedroom villa at 1/100 Hedges Avenue, Mermaid Beach is located on the most prestigious beachfront strip in Queensland, mere steps away from beaches and cafes.

Hackett grew up in the adjacent suburb of Mermaid Waters. He said the opportunity to buy the home six years ago was too good to resist.

“I decided to move back to the Gold Coast in 2014. Who doesn’t want to move to the Gold Coast and live on the beach?” Mr Hackett told Domain.

“It’s a perfect spot. Steps away from the beach and I absolutely fell in love with it straight away.”

In the last four years, the gold medallist known as one of Australia’s best long-distance swimmers has relocated to Melbourne with his family.

They have used the Gold Coast property as a holiday home since then and have decided it is time to sell.

“There’s no news yet but our family is growing down here in Melbourne,” Mr Hackett said. “We want to get a bigger property down here in Melbourne.

“When we do go up [to the Gold Coast] we are spending all our time with our family. It doesn’t make sense to hold such a beautiful property any longer.

“From our perspective, we’re sad to see it go but I’m sure someone else will get some pleasure out of it.”

The home also has two powder rooms. Photo: Supplied

The home, which has a total space of 331 square metres, spans four levels and has a double lock-up garage in the basement plus visitor parking.

The property has open-plan living and dining rooms that showcase the beach views.

It also has a private internal lift to take residents up to the fourth-floor rooftop terrace with panoramic views of the Coolangatta coastline back to the mountains.

Selling agent Troy Dowker of Kollosche said he anticipated the luxury modern villa would be in high demand.

“A luxury style villa is few and far between,” he said. “You get rockstar views from the rooftop terrace. It is a pretty amazing space.”

The property last sold for $1.5 million in 2014, records show.

It is scheduled to go to auction on May 30 at 9am.
