A newly built home that’s designed to appear to be floating along the cliffs of Burleigh Heads, a Gold Coast suburb in Queensland, Australia, hit the market last week.
There’s no asking price, per se, since the house is being sold through an “expressions of interest” campaign, a sale method reportedly considered somewhere between an auction and a traditional sale and used to draw offers for properties without disclosing the price for which the owner wants to sell. Like an auction, the property has a deadline for sale, but buyers can’t see other bids or bidders. As such an asking price cannot be disclosed.

The three-level house on Hill Avenue is owned by Rozetta Naumoski, who bought the lot in June 2016 for A$880,000 (US$667,121) and immediately knocked down the old shack that was on the site, said listing broker Ed Cherry of Sophie Carter Exclusive Properties.
She drafted architect Paul Uhlmann and builder Nick McDonald, and the resulting suspended property has four bedrooms, high ceilings, multiple living spaces, including a sunken lounge with a fireplace, a pool and poolside deck, a full floor master suite with a outdoors soaking tub, sliding doors and a study nook and coastal views, according to the listing.
The gradient of the lot proved challenging during the building, as did “complying with council regulations and trying to create a floating illusion on such a narrow block,” Mr. Cherry said.
