The Gold Coast couple lived in their new home for WEEKS before receiving an offer from Leyton Hewitt

A Gold Coat couple made $550.00 in just three months after Australian tennis superstar Lleyton Hewitt bought their Burleigh Heads home.

Katie Langston and her husband Jeremy bought the showstopper property called The Palms in Queensland for $3.75 million at auction in May 2021.

Just months later, they put the house – one of the most photographed properties in the states – on the market for $4.3 million.

By September 23, it was snapped up by the former world number one and his wife Bec.

“We only lived in it for about five weeks,” Mr Langston told Real Estate AU.

“We moved out before we put it on the market. Despite living in Queensland’s home of the year 2021, we were homesick for Koala Park, so we found the perfect location on the same street we had previously lived on and sold The Palms to the Hewitts,” he added.

Within six days of the Deodar Drive home going on the market, agents Conal Martin of Kingfisher Realty and Ed Cherry of Harcourts Coastal had received eight bids, with the tennis superstars posting the winning bid of $4.305 million.

But Mr Langston claimed “it wasn’t about the money” but about her desire to move back to Koala Park.

Construction of the four-bedroom mansion known as “The Palms” drew an audience on Instagram as buyers and home improvement enthusiasts followed the progress on a 539-square-foot block in Burleigh Heads, Gold Coast.

The home became the state’s most-photographed home after it garnered 27,000 shares in a viral Facebook post and more than 500 people gathered to watch it go under the hammer on May 29.

The mansion was designed around a central hub perfect for entertaining guests. It features an open-plan kitchen, living and dining area that flows into an outdoor entertaining area with a sunken fireplace, glass-edged pool and outdoor kitchen.

The previous owners, who wished to remain anonymous and refused to disclose the total cost of the house, told Daily Mail Australia that they decided to sell it for personal reasons.

There’s also a wine cellar, home theater, and huge windows that offer expansive views of the area from almost every room.

Listing Agent Conal Martin of Kingfisher Realty, who sold the property to the Langston family, said there was no denying it was “pretty special”.

“As soon as you step inside, you are overcome by a surreal sense of contentment and calm. People never want to leave,” he said in June.

Photos of the home have drawn stunned reactions on social media, with many saying they would live there immediately.

“The houses have certainly changed since I’ve been hanging out in this area! Beautiful,” wrote one woman.

“Well, that’s an exception to not wanting a flash seat! I could live there,” said another.
