Nicole Kidman auctioning last piece of far south coast NSW beachfront: Title Tattle

Actor Nicole Kidman has scheduled a February auction to offload the last piece of her beachfront holding on the NSW far south coast. Kidman purchased the Rosedale holding as part of a $4 million outlay on the coastal strip in 2004. She has already recouped $3 million selling two of the properties to Canberrans.

The last portion is a vacant 1,009-square-metre block. It had been for sale since 2008 at $1.2 million plus through Michael Skuse of LJ Hooker Batemans Bay, who now has scheduled the property for February 11 auction.

Its LJ Hooker marketing says there are “stunning views of Rosedale Beach and Jimmys Island from this gorgeous beachside block”.

It has 21 metres of beach frontage on Knowlman Road.

“It’s the kind of land you will hold for generations,” Skuse’s marketing suggests.

It was 2004 when Angus Hawley, Nicole's then brother-in-law, first swooped into town by helicopter to bid on the rare beachfront offering offered by the Knowlman farming family from Goulburn, who had paid £35 in 1929.

Rosedale locals say Kidman has been there only a handful of times since 2004. Buyers are being told to expect to pay around $800,000.
