A GOLD Coast trophy home so hot it’s rumoured to have hosted Hollywood royalty is about to hit the market.

The home comes with a raft of luxury features from a private beach, wine cellar, gym, sauna and pool to a cinema, billiard den, rainforest garden and basement parking for six cars.
The property last traded in 2016 for $15.5 million — it was the highest sale since the GFC-impacted market of 2009 and, at the time, signalled a new confidence in the city’s property market.

The house, which has six bedrooms and six bathrooms, is on a northeast facing 2197sq m site on a section of the Nerang River known as the Adams Basin.

Mr Spong founded the Thin Air accessories business, a supplier to Billabong International, which was turning over nearly $40 million a year when it was eventually sold to Billabong.
Architectural firm Hamilton Hayes Henderson was engaged to design the house and to incorporate ideas and influences the Spongs had picked up in Bali and parts of Asia.
