The prominent Gold Coast lawyer Chris Nyst and wife Julia are trying again to sell their Gold Coast home.

Newly rebuilt when they initially listed the home last year, the 1960s Southport home on the exclusive Regatta Parade cost the couple $1.05 million in 2013.

They commissioned its rebuild, spending four months adding a new kitchen and extending the upstairs living areas.

The home now comes with three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a home office and two living areas, one of which opens to the large entertainment terrace and swimming pool.

A portrait of Chris, sketched by notorious bank robber Brenden Abbott, known as the 'Postcard Bandit', didn't make the listing photos.

Ray White Prestige Gold Coast agent Sherri Smith and Robert Graham are now marketing the home which failed to sell having a $2.36 million asking price. They will now take $1,799,000.

Nyste was admitted as a lawyer in Brisbane in 1977 and became a senior partner for Minter Ellison before resigning in 2001 to set up Nyst Lawyers, a boutique litigation practice.

The keen surfer has represented high-profile clients such as One Nation leader Pauline Hanson, surfer Mark Occhilupo and tennis star Bernard Tomic.

Chris is also an award-wining fiction writer and has released three novels, Cop This (1999), Gone (2000) and Crook as Rookwood (2005), as well as releasing two screenplays.

He is writing a new novel and has plans to shoot another crime comedy film in the Gold Coast and Melbourne.
