The sale is a first for the Gold Coast-based Amir Prestige Group, which is about to open an office in the town.
Agency principal Amir Mian, who also owns a property in the northern NSW area, said it was a great sale to kick off their foray into the local community.

Mr Mian said Hercules was a very unique property on which he received multiple competitive offers within a week of the listing going live.

It was taken off the market ahead of its auction date by an unnamed buyer from Queensland, who Mr Mian said would be simply using the property for his own enjoyment.
The estate was owned by Byron locals Deborah and Robert Wild, co-directors of the Evolve College school of massage training.
There are views spanning Broken Head to the Byron lighthouse.
They bought the property off international music producer Tom Misner in 2014 for $7.9m.
After the purchase, the Wilds expanded the property, adding the second residence, conference centre with offices, film and recording studio.
The estate’s existing main residence is a five-bedroom home of concrete construction and featuring travertine tiles and local timber finishes. There are two master suites, a commercial-grade kitchen, multiple living and dining zones and an alfresco terrace overlooking an infinity pool and championship tennis court.

A second two-level dwelling has multiple living zones, a chef’s kitchen, office, gym, steam room and separate heated 15m pool.
Views stretching from Broken Head to the Byron Bay Lighthouse can be viewed from almost everywhere on the estate, and the owners have built two cliff-face observation decks into the escarpment to give residents a front-row seat to spectacular sunrises over Cape Byron.
The property has equalled the record price for a residential sale in the shire.
The $22m sale equals that of the record price set in the Shire in 2020, when Rip Curl founder Brian Singer paid $22m for recruitment industry heavyweight Geoff Morgan’s Wategoes pad at 35 Marine Pde.

It is being tipped that two other properties, which have just hit the market, could strip Hercules and the Marine Pde house of their record sale title.
It is anticipated a timber shack on a 1500sq m block at 38 Childe St in Belongil Beach will fetch $20m-plus, according to McGrath agents Ian Daniels and Susan Whyte and Byron Bay Real Estate Agency’s Tony Farrell
