Queensland entrepreneur Tony Quinn, who made his money from the Pet Foods empire he founded with wife Christine, has spent $7,975,000 on a luxury Gold Coast waterfront.

It's on the dress circle Admiralty Drive at Surfers Paradise, fronting the Broadwater.

The sprawling five bedroom home on 1,350 square metre was the only home in Australia designed by American architect Edward Larrabee Barnes.

It was originally built for the Matsushita family, who were behind the Panasonic Electronics empire.

The home, complete with 12 metre indoor saltwater swimming pool, waterside boathouse and seven seat home cinema, was sold by Tony Burnett and wife Toni Ferguson, whose TB’s Hotels business own a number of pubs across Queensland.

They paid $6,725,000 in 2011.

The home was initially listed at $10.95 million in mid 2017.

The Quinn's also recently spent $5.6 million on an apartment in the new Main Beach complex Sea, designed by architect Bayden Goddard.
