One of the Gold Coast’s most high profile business women is wasting no time fulfilling her New Year’s resolution – to downsize and sell her home at Palm Beach.

Nanette Carroll, a leading figure in Australia’s recruitment industry, has put her absolute beachfront Hamptons-style property at 255 Jefferson Lane, Palm Beach up for grabs.

Ms Carroll was the 1996 winner of the Australian Telstra business woman of the year award for business owners and now serves as a non-executive director of Workpac Group.

She has had more than 25 years in the recruitment industry and numerous council and board appointments.

Lucy Cole, of Lucy Cole Prestige Properties, said Ms Carroll was selling so she could spend more time overseas, where most of her 10 grandchildren lived. But parting ways with the home wouldn’t be easy.

“From the moment you walk into the open-plan lounge area, you can see the ocean, and the sand is right at your doorstep,” Ms Cole said. “It’s such a unique setting and it doesn’t need any work. If you’re into beach living or surfing, there’s nothing finer.”

Ms Cole said there had been interest from interstate and international buyers, as well as locals.

However, with the property going up for auction, she was unable to give a price guide.

Domain Group previously reported on the banning of price guides, now enforced for any properties selling at auction in Queensland.

“It has been extremely difficult, because they’re all expecting some sort of a price expectation or price range,” Ms Cole said.

The two-storey residence has five bedrooms, including a beachfront parents’ retreat with a walk-in robe and ocean sun room, as well as three luxury bathrooms, and brush box timber flooring.

The home also sits on a corner block, and includes multiple open-plan living zones, a two-car garage, and storage for a boat or caravan.

While not quite as exclusive as Hedges Avenue at Mermaid Beach, Jefferson Lane is considered to be one of the best streets on the Gold Coast and is just metres from boutique shops, cafes, schools and also close to the Gold Coast Airport.

“Some people want to be closer to the airport and get the better surf,” Ms Cole said.

“You  have a surf club and patrolled beaches and it’s closer to the M1 so there are a lot of other advantages.”

The property is up for auction on Saturday, January 17, at 10.30am.
