Price tag attached to fitness star Ashy Bines’ Gold Coast house after passing in at auction
FITNESS guru and social media influencer Ashy Bines’ home has failed to sell under the hammer.
The luxury Broadbeach Waters property passed in at $2.2 million at the midweek auction and now has an asking price of $2.495 million.
CoreLogic records show Ms Bines purchased the palatial property at 15 Cedar Place for $1.955 million in 2013.

Ms Bines, who has more than 840,000 Instagram followers, lived at the waterfront mansion with her husband Steven Evans and their son Taj, 3.
The family are selling after moving into a rental closer to the beach.
“I’m personally someone who likes to move and prefer to rent over own, so I like the variety of having different bedrooms, different locations and just moving and I find it quite exciting,” Ms Bine said in a YouTube vlog earlier this year.
“We found this house … a rental … in the most amazing location … on the Gold Coast … it’s not like right on the beach but it’s a street back.
“We just want to live that lifestyle where every afternoon our routine is to put our feet in the water.”
Harcourts Coastal listing agent Grant Stephens said despite the property not selling at auction there was great interest and he expected it to sell soon.
“There’s not a lot of six bedroom homes around to start with, and the view has been really, really popular,” he said.
“The view is magnetic with the river and skyline, the waterfront entertaining is outstanding and the architecture and space is ideal for (a) large family.”
The unsuccessful auction follows the fitness queen slimming down her Mermaid Waters gym from two premises to one and the deregistering and re-registering of the company name ABBBC Pty Ltd.
The gym, called Ashy Bines Transformation Centre, has also shut down its website and membership fees have been slashed.
Mr Evens, in a statement to the Bulletin, said the shrinking gym was a move to consolidate its operation to the one space and the re-registering of the business was lodged by their tax agent.
