He paid $275,000 for the property which he has held for so long that the land alone is valued at $1.15m last year, according to CoreLogic records.
In the last five years alone, houses in Birkdale have risen in price by 13.5 per cent, with the median asking rent sitting at around $485 a week.
The King’s beautiful home comes with all the trappings you would expect of an up-market Queensland home with a tennis court, pool, gazebo, and pontoon on a large 1,353sq m block.
The humble sporting legend has not sought publicity over the sale, with CoreLogic simply showing that he has had it on the market for just over 20 days.
