Renowned international rugby player turned reality TV star, Nick Cummins, affectionately known as the ‘Honey Badger,’ has decided to bid farewell to city life, putting his exquisite Broadbeach Waters residence on the market.
The five-bedroom home, a collaborative creation with partner Alexandra George, is making waves in the Australian real estate scene, according to realestate.com.au.
Cummins, who starred on season 6 of The Bachelor, and George embarked on this housing journey back in 2020 when they purchased a 551sq m block for $775,000 in January 2019.
They embarked on a significant transformation, demolishing the existing 1970s structure to make way for a luxury double-storey abode complete with a cinema room.
“It was our first project together, and it turns out she’s pretty handy on the design front,” Cummins told the Gold Coast Bulletin in 2021.
“From when we had it built, I was in by myself there sleeping on a swag in the main bedroom.
“I had a little coffee table my brother had made…and I had two camp chairs, and I was sort of cool with that, but when Alex got here, she talked some sense into me.”
The property briefly entered the rental market in May 2022, just before the couple welcomed their son in October of the same year.
Subsequently, they shifted their lifestyle to embrace the serenity of acreage living, purchasing an expansive estate in the Gold Coast Hinterland.
Their Broadbeach Waters residence is currently being represented by Corey Bedford, a prominent agent at Kollosche – Broadbeach.
Mr Bedford reports robust interest in the property since the launch of the campaign, with strong inquiries from both local and interstate buyers.
“This property is a real lifestyle opportunity,” Mr Bedford told realestate.com.au.
“We’re looking for someone who wants to be on the water close to the main river and who wants to move straight in as there is no work to do.”
The house boasts an open-plan kitchen, dining, and living area that seamlessly connects to a tiered deck, spa, firepit, and pontoon.
Described as “flawlessly constructed in 2020” in the listing, the modern and spacious double-storey residence offers a turnkey opportunity for those seeking an elevated waterfront lifestyle.
Prospective buyers have the chance to make their bids as the house is marketed via expressions of interest, with the closing date set for October 20, 2023.
