NZ media boss lists Sunshine Coast holiday home

The Sunshine Coast holiday home of media boss Matthew Horton and wife Roxane has been listed for sale.

The Marcus Beach property last traded for $2 million in 2011 when bought from Lorna Clarkson, the fashion designer creator of the Lorna Jane activewear brand.

Set on 785 sqm on absolute beachfront, with its own private path to Marcus Beach, the home has been listed through Tom Offermann Real Estate agent Nic Hunter who is asking for $2,495,000.

The Horton family, along with the Wilson family, were the founders of the New Zealand Herald, New Zealand's largest daily newspaper.

Matthew, the son of former Herald owner Michael Horton and philanthropist Dame Rosie Horton, recently shut down its coldset printing plant in Queensland.

He blamed "grossly uncompetitive behaviour" by competitor Fairfax Media.

“Fairfax has totally and absolutely destroyed the profitability of the coldset web printing market in Australia," Horton said.

Matthew and Roxane have a base in Clayfield.
