CELEB GETAWAY: 6256 Spyglass Hill, Hope Island has sold for $2.86 million.IT’s been a rock star residence but now the proverbial red carpet is being rolled up for more family-friendly occupants.The Sanctuary Cove mansion on Spyglass Hill has been an escape for a multitude of stars, from the Jolie-Pitts before their split, to Pink, Harry Styles, Dave Grohl, Paris Hilton and Johnny Depp. STAR POWER: Some of the celebs who stayed at the Sanctuary Cove residence.“It was a very popular house for celebrities to stay in because it’s very private, it’s on 2000sq m, no one can see into the house,” said Wendy Hickey of Hope Island Resort Realty, who marketed the property with husband Warren Hickey. The five-bedroom, six-bathroom luxury home sold for $2.86 million, slashed from the $3.5 million its wealthy Chinese seller originally wanted. It’s completely private from prying eyes.“Because it’s in a gated community in Sanctuary Cove, the open homes were quite challenging, we had to be aware of open home,” said Mrs Hickey.The sale comes after a change in marketing agents — the property was first listed in April this year.It was on the market for about 40 days with the Hickeys before it sold.The couple handled the highest sale on the Gold Coast this year — a “secret home” at Hope Island changed hands for $16.75 million. The property is one of Sanctuary Cove’s two largest blocks.
