    Former Olympic Gold Medallist Sells Luxury Property in Queensland

    Australian sports legend, Debbie Flintoff-King, who won a gold medal in the 1988 Seoul Olympics for the 400m hurdles, is set to upgrade her home after selling one of her properties for a staggering $3.75 million. The luxurious riverfront holiday home located on the Sunshine Coast was the most lucrative sale among a series of successful auctions conducted by the Ray White group over the weekend.

    Flintoff-King and her husband, Phil King, who is also her coach, have decided to sell three of their properties in Queensland. The reason behind this move is their desire for a larger residence that can comfortably accommodate their growing family. They plan to upgrade to a spacious five-bedroom holiday apartment in the same desirable area.

    The recently sold property, a three-bedroom, two-bathroom unit located at 1002/100 Duporth Ave, Maroochydore, attracted significant interest from buyers. Ultimately, it was a Noosa-based family who secured the keys through a competitive bidding process. The real estate agent, Pam Thomas, described the apartment as exceptionally well-appointed, with a great layout and luxurious amenities. Its ground-floor position allowed for a unique connection to the Maroochy River, offering breathtaking views that change with the tides.

    In addition to the riverfront apartment, the couple has also listed two development sites for sale. The 810 sqm block at 88 Chaucer St, Moorooka, is priced at $1.1 million, while the 1,414 sqm site at 31 Carter Rd, Nambour, is priced at approximately $645,000. These sites present an excellent opportunity for developers looking to capitalize on the current housing crisis, according to Andrew Burke, the agent handling the listings for Ray White Special Projects.

    The sale of the riverfront holiday home marks another milestone in Debbie Flintoff-King’s remarkable journey, which began with her historic Olympic victory. As an accomplished athlete and a highly regarded figure in Australian sports, her decision to upgrade her living arrangements showcases her continued success and determination to provide the best for her family.
