Temperature Design director Vicki Corbett and businessman husband Peter Carroll have snappily sold their Gary Hunt-designed Port Douglas holiday home, One Batujimba for $2.8 million.
 
They bought One Batujimba in 2003 for $350,000 and used the property as a holiday home given Vicki's design company based in Melbourne.
 
Peter previously worked for Coca Cola in Atalanta, Japan and Hong Kong and more recently for global healthcare company Ansell in Melbourne before leaving his post in 2013.
 
The retreat style home was designed by Port Douglas architects Gary Hunt & Associates with the compound created in the vernacular of Geoffrey Bawa by leading golf course designer Michael Woveridge.
 
The contemporary three bedroom quarter residence, positioned atop a fish filled waterlily lake comes with a 2.1 metre Japanese inspired water feature, a water dining deck, jetty and magnesium plunge pool sundeck.
 
Only shared with two other residences, the Batujimba compound features a 17 metre heated wet edge pool and a dining pavilion which hosts up to 14 people.
 
The property is located just a short walk to Four-Mile Beach and Palmer Palmer Sea Reef Golf Course with the town centre just a seven minute drive.
 
The property was listed through Barbara Wolveridge of Raine and Horne Port Douglas, with marketing by Lynn Malone, selling after the first inspection with an Adelaide couple buying the property fully furnished.
 
Vicki and Peter recently purchased Trentham Falls Farm in Victoria, a 14 hectare working farm with an 1870 cottage they are restoring.
