Sally Pearson’s Gold Coast home fetches more than $1 million
CHAMPION hurdler Sally Pearson has made $275,000 on the sale of her Gold Coast home.
Updated property records now show the Helensvale acreage estate, which has two residences and a pool, sold for $1.18 million in February.
The athletics star and her husband Kieran bought the property in 2015 for $905,000.
It was listed in January with an asking price of more than $1.199 million before being snapped up less than a month later by a local family.
Marketing agent Julian Porter, of Harcourts Pacific Pines, would not reveal the sale price when the contract went unconditional in mid February as it was yet to settle.

However, he told the Bulletin it went under contract 10 days after hitting the market.
“I had a heap of interest in the property both from local and interstate buyers,” he said.
“I had more than 30 groups of buyers inspect the property and many of them are still looking to purchase something similar.”
Mr Porter also helped the couple sell their Pacific Pines home in 2015.
CoreLogic data shows Pearson, who is known for leading a private lifestyle away from the track, owns one other property with her husband on the Coast.
The Coast golden girl has long led Australia’s athletics charge, winning a gold medal in the 100m hurdles at the 2012 London Olympics.
