Gold Coast home that has lived in two postcodes hits the market
FORGIVE this quaint home for looking a little tired and weathered — it has had a rough trot from the day it was built more than 70 years ago.
The dated Miami property, which has recently hit the market, was actually built at Surfers Paradise in the 1940s before it took up permanent residency at 3 Clayfield Ave.
Marketing agent Richard Snowden, of McGrath Palm Beach, said it was picked up moved from Cavill Ave to Miami in 1955.

Property records show the three-bedroom house’s current owner bought it in 2009, more than two decades after it last sold.
“It’s been an unfinished project for the past 10 years,” Mr Snowden said.
“It’s a renovator but it’s got a lot of charm.”
The house is on a 443sq m block with views from Burleigh Headland to Magic Mountain.
It exudes character with hardwood flooring, exposed timber roofing and stained glass bay windows among its qualities.
Mr Snowden said the house was the “perfect blank canvas”.
Despite its derelict appearance, the residence has attracted interest from house hunters hoping to restore it to its former glory or bulldoze and start from scratch.
“We’ve had 32 buyers come through in the past few inspections,” Mr Snowden said.
It will go under the hammer on October 4 at 5pm.
