Caroline Frykberg, the widow of the late sports broadcasting legend, Ian Frykberg has sold their Port Douglas retreat for $5.1 million.

Perched high on the most easterly point of Flagstaff Hill, the home offers views of the Coral Sea, Four Mile Beach and the rainforest.

The 931 sqm Murphy Street parcel comes the five bedroom, four bathroom residence which has been a holiday rental.

It was bought for $2 million in 2001 from the comedic Melbourne entreprenuer Steve Vizard. The Frykberg's had previously owned next door, a penthouse which was bought in 1997 for $640,000 and sold in 2003 at $1 million.

Fryckers, as he was affectionately known, was a formidable force in the media game, the founding executive producer of the Today Show in 1982.

He went onto broker deals for the NRL, AFL and the English Premier League.

The home sold to Melbourne couple, Tony Nunan, the former national president of the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia, and his wife Genevieve.
