The Glasshouse at Burleigh Heads
A super-sized beachfront apartment under construction at Burleigh Heads has sold for a record-breaking $24 million.
A Queensland-based buyer splashed the staggering sum to secure a three-level residence in the Goodwin Terrace project, which claimed the title of the state’s richest-ever apartment sale.
It’s the second eye-popping deal within the Spyre Group’s ultra-luxe Glasshouse development after an interstate buyer snapped up the 970 sqm penthouse off the plan for $20m in April last year.
Amir Prestige principal Amir Mian handled the most recent sale, following a pivot by the developer in August to merge the building’s remaining two units into one lavish beach house with four bedrooms and five bathrooms.

Mr Mian said the developer had effectively created two top-tier penthouses in the Glasshouse.
“The buyer recognised an outstanding opportunity to own a new, luxury penthouse in an unmatched location with what I consider the best view on the Gold Coast,” Mr Mian.
“They have taken the option to amalgamate the two apartments and make the most of the lifestyle and amenities on offer at beautiful Burleigh Heads without compromising on living space.”
Mr Mian said the deal showed continued demand for blue-chip real estate on the Gold Coast.
Luxury living spaces span 800 sqm
Spyre director Andrew Malouf confirmed the unconditional sale, with the price of the 800sqm apartment equating to $30,000 per sqm. By comparison, the square metre purchase price of the project’s first penthouse was $20,619.
The Glasshouse deal was trumped by a European-inspired mansion in a dress-circle Southport location, which fetched $24.8m under the hammer in September.
Spyre managing director Daniel Laruccia said huge demand for Glasshouse’s original penthouse pointed to a “gap in the market for an ultra-luxury product in Burleigh Heads”.
“The amalgamated residence will provide the functionality of a very large home within a location that is essentially reserved for multi-residential living on Burleigh’s beachfront,’’ Mr Laruccia said.
It’s the highest price ever paid for an apartment in Queensland

Other features include a media room, guest suite, wine room, home office, six car parks and a private pool.
