The winning $1.2 million bidders of a Chevron Island villa apartment at weekend auction have plans to relocate from their Goulburn, NSW home.

The property was sold by Ray White Surfers Paradise agent Glen Williams, with the three bedroom three bathroom Chevron Riviera villa townhouse (pictured abode) attracting some 25 bids.

It is a three level villa with basement garaging on Stanhill Drive.

“We’ve been coming up here to the Gold Coast from Goulburn for years and we also have a couple of units up here, so this one is for our retirement,” the buyer Noel Hollingworth (pictured) said.

“It’s always been in our plans to move to the Gold Coast so we’re extremely happy.

“We’ve been looking at a number of properties but this one stood out to us.

"The fact it was on Chevron Island really appealed to us," he said.

The Chevron Riviera complex has four villas.

The offering, with pool and lift, had last sold in 2005 at $750,000. The neighbouring villa had sold in 2017 at $825,000.

South East Queensland is traditionally the busiest auction location for coastal offerings over the Australia Day long weekend. And 2020 didn't miss despite the pandemic.

Buoyed by the booming demand for Gold Coast property from interstate buyers, Ray White Surfers Paradise Group has reported over $40 million worth of property sales at its big weekend auction.

The RWSP CEO Andrew Bell described it as “the best ever."

There were 315 registered bidders for the 90 properties that went under the hammer, with most of the early items selling at between five and 10 per cent over reserve, along with 15 listings selling prior.
