While the Gold Coast residence isn’t as opulent as their palatial Toorak pad, it was built in 2021 to meticulous standards, offering four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a four -car garage in one of the hottest real estate enclaves in the country.
Sold fully furnished and styled by Kira & Kira, the Hewitt’s Palm Springs-inspired home brings the wow factor.
