Andrew Bell’s Market Wrap: New Year, New Property

By Rebecca Coleman

Issue 26 | Thursday 30 December | New Year, New Property

Hi, Andrew Bell here, and Season’s Greetings to you.  I promise I will only take a moment of your time during this very festive week.

I’m here today at a location that only a handful of people know about.  We are in Benowa and we are on one of the very rare hills in the inner city area on the Gold Coast, in a location of one of the original settlers’ farmhouses.  The land was originally used for sugar plantations and then a cattle station.  Right here was chosen as the very best position in the whole area to build the original farmhouse.  How amazing that we are standing on 4,822 sqm of hilltop land.

Of course over the century and a half that followed, the farmland was progressing sub-divided into smaller individual acreages for farming and then converted again into what we now see as residential housing for the suburbs of Benowa and Ashmore. But what is here now is nothing short of breathtaking.  I’ll share some more information about this amazing property that has just come to market for only the 3rd time in its history.

As we know, there has been an acute shortage of properties that still exist today.  So for months now I’ve had our sales force focussed on bringing together the greatest selection of Gold Coast properties to be able to offer to the market.  Instead of listing 2-3 properties here and there, we have been able to accumulate and provide our buyers with the greatest array of properties all over the Gold Coast from Tugan in the south to Coomera in the north and from the beachfront to our hinterlands.  There are apartments, villas, townhouses, houses, and of course luxury homes.  Properties from low hundreds into double-digit millions – literally something for everyone.  We even have an outstanding commercial offering

All of these properties are part of the legendary promotion called The Event.  It’s the largest auction held in Australia each year and this year we have broken the world record for the greatest number of real estate offerings submitted to auction in one promotion.

Nearly all of these properties have been launched to the market and the others will be online in a matter of days.  You can view them on digital portals such as, domain and many of them will be in this weekend’s real estate section of the Gold Coast Bulletin so don’t fail to look at any of those avenues to view this wide array of properties.  And for your convenience, we have highlighted the properties in this eNews with a QR code facility that will take you straight to The Event website.

We have been fully operational since Boxing Day and we welcome your enquiries, but we particularly look forward to meeting you at our open homes over the next week.  Do not miss the opportunity to view the largest selection of newly listed properties to ever hit the market by one agency for your convenience.  We have truly handpicked the most amazing offerings in this marketplace.

Talking about amazing…….. how rare is this property at 14-18 Carcoola Street, Benowa.  The original homestead has been replaced by this amazing home.  You won’t see a home like this on the Gold Coast anywhere.  It has so many one-off original items such as timber from original woolsheds in Brisbane and door jams straight from historical churches and so on.  Apart from the home, there is a completely separate 2 story guest quarters residence and an amazing solitude room to a natural spring water hole that is ideal for mediation, arts and crafts, or simply a massage.

But I could never do justice trying to describe this home.  So for those looking for the most prime position in the heart of the city with 4,822 sqm of land, amazing historical trees with peace and tranquillity that you cannot find elsewhere…. then reach out to us on the details shown on screen and we can advise you of inspection times.

For all your inquiries, whether it’s on this property or any of the properties that form part of The Event 2022, please contact us by phone, email, or by attending one of the scheduled open homes.  Do not miss your opportunity to claim part of the “go-to” property market of Australia and be part of this amazing city with an unprecedented golden future.

On behalf of the 200+ members of our team who have been part of building and forging this city’s real estate foundations for over 32 years whether it’s in the sale, the management, or the development all over the Gold Coast, we are proud to be part of Australasia’s number 1 real estate company selling over $80 billion of Australian real estate annually, I would like to extend our very best wishes to you for a Happy New Year, not only to yourself but to your family and please be assured you that we are here at your service whenever and however we can assist.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us whether you are buying, selling, or renting.

Warm Regards,

Andrew Bell, OAM
