Attendance figures exceeding 600 were recorded this past weekend at the auction of coveted Gold Coast property, The Palms. Located at 13 Deodar Drive in Burleigh Heads, according to Kingfisher Realty agent Conal Martin, the event will go down in history as the biggest on-site auction ever experienced by the area.
“No one could believe it,” Martin tells news.com.au.
“The gates to the property were shut at 10 AM… people turned up afterwards but they were too late. They had to stand outside and watch the live stream on their phones.”
In the weeks leading up to its eventual sale, The Palms had (understandably) achieved viral status on Facebook across a number of galleries and reposted listings. Flaunting exceedingly tasteful interiors rich with Harbour American Oak timber flooring, custom Australian brassware, Italian terrazzo tiles, Santorini Claystone feature walls, not to mention plenty of opportunity for natural lighting, as you’ll discover in the gallery below… it’s a breathtaking slice of Palm Springs on our very own sunburnt shores meets award-winning aesthetic curation.
“Through the stunning custom front doors, you will be whisked away to a beachside oasis,” reads the listing’s description.
“The Palms showcases exceptional attention to detail from the bespoke joinery to the light palette of timber enhanced by irrigated greenery and brass accents all of which is complemented by natural feature stone walls.”
“The open floorplan seamlessly characterizes the relaxed lifestyle Burleigh is renowned for, taking full advantage of indoor/outdoor living with the use of cavity glass stacker doors and bi-folds, perfectly opening to create a harmonious flow of space throughout the entire downstairs living area.”
