The estate at 96-100 Riemore Circuit was marketed by LJ Hooker Solutions Gold Coast – Nerang agent Alex Hayes, who described the entertaining area as an “outdoor resort”.
“I’ve never seen a property like it and I’ve been selling for 15 years,” Ms Hayes said.
“I had a lot of inquiry on the property and the pool and surrounds got a lot of attention.
“It had lots of little features like a treasure chest and it was just really well designed.”

Ms Hayes said a Gold Coast family managed to secure the keys to the one-of-a-kind property.
“They were a young family and they really loved the lifestyle it offered,” she said.
“It was one of those complete properties where there was really nothing to do.”
Records reveal the vendors paid $294,500 for the block of land in 2015 before building their dream home.
“The vendors built it to stay and it was not in their thoughts to sell,” Ms Hayes said.
“But they decided to simplify their life and go in a different direction.”

Ms Hayes said the area had become popular with families wanting to escape the city and was still accessible to major shops and schools.
“That entire area has really gained a lot of attention from day-trippers and people going on the food and wine trails,” Ms Hayes said.
“A lot people drive through and then realise they could live there.”
