Prices soar for Kingscliff trophy homes

first_img51 Cylinders Drive, KingscliffKINGSCLIFF trophy homeowners are selling their sprawling sanctuaries for big price tags as beachfront land supply tightens.A luxury property at Cylinders Drive has just been listed for an area record $3.195 million and agents say they are fielding dozens of calls each day for other houses in the suburb. Polished concrete floors offer low maintenance.“At one stage we were working on a shipwreck theme, and we knew the timber would weather well over time which it did really nicely. Very few parts are actually painted and we wanted low maintenance as well, hence the polished concrete floors.”Set over two levels under soaring plywood ceilings, the four-bedroom, four-bathroom property features a home cinema, stone and marble finishes and a hidden study.The 9 x 5m pool is the centrepiece of the entertaining area, which also boasts a six-person spa bath with direct viewing to an outdoor plasma TV, as well as speakers in the garden and opening roof and integrated barbecue and bar fridge. A four-metre marble island bench features in the kitchen. The outdoor spa with plasma TV.“We wanted something that maximised the outdoor living space and my wife and kids wanted a large pool. We wanted that to be centrally located within the house and be able to live outside the house as much as we live inside the house,” Mr Latham said.The Lathams are selling up so they can build again.“We’ll definitely stay in the area, really it’s an opportunity for us to potentially realise a good gain,” Mr Latham said. The pool is the centrepiece of the outdoor entertaining area.center_img The Cylinders Drive property is on a tightly-held beachfront block.“There’s a few good quality beachfront houses on the market in the area so people will more likely make the trip from Sydney to look at a few rather than just one.”Already Mr Witheriff has fielded 25 inquiries in 24 hours.“We are getting interest from Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne and a couple from Byron Bay,” Mr Witheriff said. Futuristic and sophisticated. The property is a statement family home.The Cylinders Drive property, owned by Gold Coast lawyer Steve Latham, features double-level glass panels allowing the interior living spaces to overlook the azure rectangle of the pool and everything from the airconditioning to the spa can be controlled with the touch of an iPhone. “We have not seen a house like this built or come to market since Salt Village was developed by the Ray Group almost 15 years ago,” said marketing agent Nick Witheriff, referring to the billion-dollar residential and resort project launched by the late Brian Ray. Kingscliff has boomed since. In the past five years the median house price has lifted 48 per cent to $836,888, according to CoreLogic’s February Market Trends report. “The price (of the Cylinders Drive property) will be setting a benchmark, but with the price of land increasing as is construction, it’s well-justified on that basis,” Mr Witheriff said. “We have no new land supply coming to the market.”Already Mr Witheriff has fielded 25 inquiries in 24 hours. “We are getting interest from Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne and a couple from Byron Bay,” Mr Witheriff said.

Smith returns home to Tridents

first_imgRegional Twenty20 star Dwayne Smith will return to the Barbados Tridents in the second big transfer move ahead of the next season of the Caribbean Premier League. The move follows the seismic shift of batting superstar Chris Gayle from defending champions Jamaica Tallawahs to the emerging St Kitts Patriots franchise. Smith played for the Guyana Amazon Warriors in this year’s CPL, the region’s premier Twenty20 tournament, a move that was met with great consternation in his native Barbados. The 33-year-old all-rounder was the third-highest scorer with 279 runs for the Warriors, helping them to reach the final, where they lost to Gayle’s Tallawahs. “It’s great to be back with the Tridents,” said Smith, who spent the first three years of the fledgling CPL with the franchise based in his native Barbados. “I’m sure the fans will be also. Let’s hope the runs are plenty like 2014.” Smith had his best season in the CPL during the 2014 tournament, amassing 353 runs at an average 44.12, highlighted by two memorable centuries at Kensington Oval against St Lucia Zouks (110 not out) and the Amazon Warriors (104 not), helping the Tridents win the title. “It’s great to have Dwayne back with us,” said Tridents captain Kieron Pollard. “Dwayne has been instrumental in our best perfor-mances and he will be crucial in our plans to win the championship next year.”last_img read more
