Record $7.5m non-beachfront Currumbin sale shows a shift in buyer mindset

7 Katta Ave, Currumbin, has sold for $7.5m.
An architect-designed home in Currumbin has just changed hands off-market for $7.5m, setting a record for a non-beachfront property sale in the suburb.
The price is $3.25m more than what it achieved in its previous sale as little as 18 months ago, when it sold under the hammer for $4.25m at Ray White’s The Event.
The architect-designed house is spread over four storeys.
RP Data shows the property to be joint owned by four members of the Rota family, who bought it off David and Vanessa Jensen.
The Jensens were behind turning what was once a beach shack on the 1138sq m block into one of the suburb’s most sought-after homes.
It has uninterrupted views along the coastline.
Details of the new owners are yet to be released, but Ray White Surfers Paradise CEO Andrew Bell, said the sale reflected the evolution of the Gold Coast market.
Mr Bell said there had been a shift in mindset with savvy high-end buyers increasingly prepared to move away from traditional beachfront locations to secure the right luxury property.

It was designed by architect Paul Uhlmann.
“These types of high-stature homes are no longer confined to the central Gold Coast, or beachfront locations,” Mr Bell said.
“Beachfront property will always appeal, particularly at the high end, but what we are seeing is a broadening in the geography at the upper-end of the market.
It is the epitome of a coastal lifestyle.
“Discerning buyers are looking at locations all along the Coast and they are willing to move suburbs for the right property.
“The slate has been wiped clean. It’s no longer about the suburb, it’s about the property and the lifestyle that goes with it and this home was a good example of that.
It has been built to the highest quality.
“It’s satisfying to see these buyers recognise the incredible lifestyle and spectacular properties on offer throughout the Gold Coast.”
Named as one of QLD’s Top 50 homes in 2021, 7 Katta Ave was designed by renowned Gold Coast architect Paul Uhlmann and built by equally high-profile Mactech Constructions.
It has two pools.
The six-bedroom, five-bathroom, fully automated smart home blurs the line between the built and natural environment through the use of natural materials, such as spotted gum timber floors, Blackbutt shiplap feature walls, and marble finishes.
The 1,138sqm block borders a conservation reserve and offers spectacular ocean views that can be captured from each of the property’s four levels.
It adjoins a conservation area.
The property is serviced by a lift, starting at the 248-bottle wine cellar and office on the lower level and rising to the master suite at the upper-most storey.
It also comes with an infinity-edge pool, a second standard pool and spa, a self-contained studio, and four-car garage.
Ray White Surfers Paradise marketing agent Jackson Paradise who handled the sale, said: “The home is absolutely stunning.
“Every detail has been carefully considered. It is modern, yet comfortable; contemporary yet warm and welcoming; secluded yet close to everything… and of course it has those unbelievable views.”
Every room affords spectacular views.
