Ex-basketball player Andrew Bogut is renting out his luxury Currumbin house
Aussie basketball legend Andrew Bogut and his wife Jessica are courting $5,000 a week rent for their spectacular hilltop mansion overlooking Currumbin Beach.
The outspoken former player, who spent most of his career in the States with the NBA and also captained Australia’s national team the Boomers, is seeking a tenant with a sky-high budget to take up residence in the distinctive three-level beach house he purchased for $4.45 million in 2019.
The architecturally designed property is currently the Gold Coast’s most expensive rental property advertised with a price on realestate.com.au — with the successful applicant also required to stump up a $30,000 bond.
It was designed by Paul Uhlmann.
What a spot for a dinner party.
The 7-bedroom, 4-bathroom oceanview home backing onto national park and known as The Copper House is listed with Kollosche agents, Josh Castellaro and Mark Thomas.
Designed by renowned architect Paul Uhlmann, it has a curved copper-clad facade with features including an internal glass lift, sleek kitchen fitted with high-end European appliances, formal dining room with wine collector’s cabinet, multiple outdoor entertaining areas plus 6-person spa and pool.
“This is a furnished masterpiece and a perfect fusion of bush and beachside living,” the property listing states.

A timber staircase from the four-car garage leads to a dedicated children’s wing with four interconnecting bedrooms and two other bedrooms on the first floor, while a large guest bedroom plus ensuite is located on the top level.
Bogut was first pick in the 2005 NBA Draft by the Milwaukee Bucks and also played for the Golden State Warriors, Dallas Mavericks, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Los Angeles Lakes up to 2019.
He started for the Boomers at three Olympic Games, and also played in Australia with the Sydney Kings.

The sleek kitchen
The 213cm player has remained in the headlines since retirement for his controversial political views, including Covid-19 conspiracy theories and, most recently, slamming transgender participation in women’s sport.
Property records show Bogut retains a 6675sqm Mudgeeraba property purchased for $6.45m last year.
In 2021, he sold a a site in Beaumaris, Victoria, which had been earmarked for a luxury home build that was stymied by council.
It was priced at $11m-$12m and sold within 48 hours.
