One of 2021’s most searched-for houses quietly changed hands late last year. Now, the owners are confirmed as Lleyton and Bec Hewitt.
The tennis star and his actress wife settled on the architecturally-designed Burleigh Heads pad in late September 2021 for $4.305 million, according to Domain’s Pricefinder data. The pair were on-sold the home after it initially sold at the of May for $3.75 million.
With a Sunshine State relocation imminent, the Hewitts then sold their ultra-luxurious Toorak mansion for $15.2 million in November.
While the Gold Coast residence isn’t as opulent as their palatial Toorak pad, it was built in 2021 to meticulous standards, offering four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a four -car garage in one of the hottest real estate enclaves in the country.
Sold fully furnished and styled by Kira & Kira, the Hewitt’s Palm Springs-inspired home brings the wow factor.
With an open floor plan, bespoke joinery, a light palette of timber enhanced by irrigated greenery, brass accents and natural feature stone walls, it’s the ultimate beachside oasis and perfect base to enjoy Queensland’s spoils.
Indoor-outdoor living is enhanced via use of cavity glass stacker doors and bi-folds, seamlessly connecting the living and dining areas to the outdoor entertaining, which is comprised of an outdoor kitchen, BBQ and beer fridge, sunken in-built fire pit beautifully framed by a glass-edged pool.
This level also as a swoon-worthy kitchen with Smeg dolce designer appliances and a Butler’s pantry, a study and a separate guest wing.
Upstairs are the remaining three ensuite bedrooms, all with walk-in robes, including the palatial primary suite with feature freestanding stone bath and triple shower with overhead skylights, inbuilt seating and custom joinery.
Other design features include arches and curves, six-metre-high ceilings, American oak floors throughout, custom Australian brass tap ware, Italian Venetian plaster and terrazzo tiles and Santorini Clay stone feature walls.
The tennis star – former world number one, Wimbledon, US Open and Davis Cup champion – is soon to be inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame.
The ITHF statement said Hewitt will be the 34th Australian to become a Hall of Famer.
“Induction into the International Tennis Hall of Fame is tennis’ ultimate honour, representing the sum of a person’s accomplishments as being among the greatest and most impactful in sport’s history. Just 267 athletes and contributors from throughout tennis history have received this honour.”
