Rugby league star Scott Prince puts price tag on Gold Coast house
RUGBY league legend Scott Prince has revealed his price hopes for his luxury Gold Coast house, which hit the market in May.
The former Gold Coast Titans captain and wife Kristy were originally going to try their luck at auction but a price tag of more than $1.775 million has since been added to the listing.
Scott Euler of @realty, who is marketing the house at 6 Garden Grove, Carrara, with Nicola Buchanan, said Prince had been flat out in the lead up to tonight’s State of Origin game.
“Due to Scott’s business and football commitments it meant he was going to be away this weekend for the auction so we felt it was best to put it back to a private treaty,” Mr Euler said.
“We have had a great mix of buyers, both local and interstate, show some interest and there are positive signs post-election, which is great for the real estate industry.
“There’s a mix of young families wanting it for that space it offers with the 1424sq m block and, the jewel of the crown, the 22m water frontage.
“And surprisingly some older buyers too … appreciating the low-set position that it offers opposed to having stairs.”

While Prince won’t be taking the field for the highly-anticipated clash, he is still involved heavily with the team.
“Go Queensland!,” Mr Euler said.
The four-bedroom waterfront house offers a pool, waterfront entertainment area, open-plan design and city skyline and Hinterland views.
The property was built in 2012 after the couple knocked down the original house, which they spent $1.3 million on in 2008.
The pair are selling to buy two new properties, one in Brisbane and another on the Gold Coast, to better juggle their time and work commitments.
Prince works with the Brisbane Broncos and their indigenous program, while his wife works on the Coast and their two daughters attend school locally.
“The girls love the school and we don’t want to uproot them and of course we all love the Gold Coast lifestyle,” Prince said when the property was listed last month.
“This literally was our dream home that we designed and built with Adenbrook Homes — I am sure it will easily become someone else’s dream home.
“Being on the water is what the Gold Coast is all about, it’s a great family home and also a great spot for entertaining.”
Prince’s long rugby career included stints with the North Queensland Cowboys, Brisbane Broncos, West Tigers, Gold Coast Titans, indigenous All Stars and the QLD State of Origin Maroons.
