SYDNEY - Former Aussie Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and his family have purchased a new holiday home at Castaways Beach, south of Noosa, for 3.1 million dollars.
Confirming the purchase, the selling agents say Rudd and his wife, Therese Rein, have chosen well and described the property as a “stunning contemporary” home.
Designed by Stephen Kidd, the five-bedroom, well-appointed house is very open, with expansive beach and ocean views from all the main rooms, reports the Sydney Morning Herald.
Karen Harman of Zinc Properties Noosa, who sold the property to Rudd, said that the family “have been looking around on and off for a few years”.
“They saw the property a couple of times” before they bought, she said.
Harman thinks they are drawn to the area “because it is so relaxed”.
The Rudds still own a family home in the Brisbane suburb of Norman Park that was bought for 384,000 dollars in 1994 and recently purchased a property in Canberra. (ANI)
