Gold Coast house with history of high-profile owners set to go under the hammer

A SOUTHPORT house that was owned by a string of high-profile Gold Coast business owners is set to go under the hammer next month.
Property records reveal the “secluded sanctuary” at 8-10 Maxwell Brown Drive was the home of entrepreneurial retired executive David Baird before he offloaded it to Julie Nyst, the wife of high-flying legal eagle Chris Nyst, in 2001.

The current vendors bought the house in 2016.
They are taking the property to auction on June 4 through Mitch Lambert of Harcourts Coastal.

They said the location, on a sprawling 1247sq m block, was an instant drawcard for their family.
“It’s an amazing location,” the vendor said.
“We can see the (TSS) Clock Tower from our balcony, the sea, the river and Mount Warning.
“You’re close to HOTA, you can cycle to the beach, take the dog for a run on Regatta Pde.
“Our children went to TSS (The Southport School) and St Hilda’s – you’re so close and it made it so much easier for pick-ups and drop-offs.”

The five-bedroom house features a kitchen and dining area that connects with the alfresco patio while a lounge includes a stone-clad fireplace.
A fully equipped games room that’s separate to the house overlooks the pool – it’s complete with its own bathroom and kitchenette.

The property also has plenty of grassed areas, lush gardens and is fenced from the street with a gate house.
“I just love sitting out and enjoying the garden and looking at the gardens and pool,” the vendor said.
“It’s just such an enjoyable space to live in.”

The vendor said there was also a great neighbourhood dynamic in the area.
“There are kids jumping on trampolines and playing basketball and our neighbours all get together for street parties,” the vendor said.
“It’s an amazing community and everyone knows each other and looks out for each other.”
