THE former Gold Coast house of Nicole Bricknell — ex-wife of disgraced former Billabong tycoon — has hit the market.
Ms Bricknell, who works as a real estate agent with Cole Residential, built the five-bedroom, four-bathroom Surfers Paradise home in 2016 after her former husband Matthew Perrin was convicted of defrauding a bank of $13.5m.
She sold the sprawling mansion for $7.3 million in June, 2021.
Two years on and the new owners, Quoc Viet Hoang and Thi Tam Tran, have decided to auction the property through Amir Prestige Group.
The two-storey Cronin Island mansion is one of 39 prestige properties on the exclusive island.
It makes the most of its prestige riverfront position with spectacular views of the city skyline from almost every room.
It comes with a seemingly endless list of luxury features including a central glass atrium, billiard room, bar, entertaining terrace and butler’s pantry.
Amir Prestige agent Alex Fleri said the prestigious positioning of the property had international appeal.
“Cronin Island is a premium on top of a premium position – this is an island off an island style living – there is nothing else like it,” Mr Fleri said.
“There is also something to be said for the waterway there – that stretch of river is the widest and longest and this property is on the northeast corner of that stretch.
“Once you cross over onto Cronin you feel an immediate tranquil ambience, there’s a different vibe entirely, but it’s also quite a well-kept secret as an enclave, with international level appeal.”
The property is going under the hammer on June 30.
