Married at First Sight royalty Jules Robinson and Cameron Merchant quietly dropped a cool $3.65 million on a contemporary home on the Gold Coast in March of this year.
Spread over 875-square-metres and backing onto the pristine Nerang River in the well-to-do suburb of Broadbeach Waters, the lavish family abode has a lot going for it.
Boasting a whopping 500-square-metres of internal living space, the two-storey residence has six bedrooms, five bathrooms and an abundance of luxurious features.
Opulent attributes include a stunning alfresco and pool area, grand master suite, wine cellar, home theatre room and a new pontoon with direct ocean access.
The Daily Mail first reported the transaction.
According to Domain’s Pricefinder records, the property last sold in 2018 for $2.45 million, meaning the reality TV stars had to splash over million more to secure the property in less than four years.
However, considering the median house price in the well-heeled neighbourhood has skyrocketed by 31.6 per cent in 2022 alone, with the average home now costing buyers $2.05 million, it’s not surprising the celebs splurged that bit extra to secure the Master Builder’s Award-nominated home.
The sale was handled by agent Hanan Cawley of Harcourts Coastal Broadbeach, who declined to comment on the transaction.
The Married at First Sight lovebirds, parents to young son Ollie, have lived on Sydney’s Northern Beaches for almost two years.
Since season six of MAFS, in which the couple became firm fan favourites, Robinson has launched two high-profile businesses – a shapewear brand named FIGUR by Jules, and Moira Muse, her fashion label specialising in sizes 6 to 24.
Endorsement deals for the pair have flowed. Robinson is an ambassador for Jenny Craig and fans on her Instagram will have spied sponsored posts for a cleaning company and pregnancy supplements, among many others, over the past few years.
Prior to joining the MAFS cast in 2019, Merchant made his name as a first-grade cricketer.
The pair were quick to use the ‘L’ word on the show and were a rock-solid pairing from the start.
Before the arrival of Ollie in 2000, Merchant listed his Kirrbilli apartment for auction, in preparation for their growing family.
The one-bedroom art deco pad sold under the hammer for $926,000.
Within a few months, the couple purchased a $1.806 million family home in Cromer, in Sydney’s north.
