Titans hooker plays it safe as Palm Beach pad goes to auction
Culture Kings owners list riverfront mansion The two-level residence at 35 Twenty Fifth Ave, Palm Beach will be put to auction.Selling a house can be a stressful experience at the best of times, even more so when the owner is subject to a COVID-19 bubble. Gold Coast Titans rugby league player Nathan Peats has been juggling the logistics of putting his Palm Beach property to market while adhering to strict NRL guidelines which prohibit any contact outside of home and training. “When the agent comes I have to take off in my car until it’s finished,” said Mr Peats, who shares the home with wife Jade and their sons Leyton, 5, and Harlen-Reign, 3.“I don’t think I’ll even be able to attend the auction.” Jade and Nathan Peats with their sons Harlen-Reign, 3, and Leyton, 5 at their wedding on the Gold Coast last year.

One block back from the beach and a short walk to Tallebudgera Creek, the property’s location has been ideal for a young family. “It’s a great place to bring kids up and we definitely want to come back,” Mr Peats said. “It’s a cracking suburb and we’re at the quieter end so it’s really a top spot.” The new deck is ideal for entertaining family and friends.The auction campaign, being handled by LJ Hooker’s Jo Elwin, comes after five seasons with the Titans for 30-year-old Peats who is keeping all options open come September. “I’m not too sure what the future holds,” he said.“We just thought selling the house would make it easier to transition, be that to another club here [in Australia] or overseas I just don’t know yet.” MORE: Gold Coast’s newest interactive playground The kitchen is modern and spacious.Modern and open plan inside, the couple has made improvements including a new entertaining deck and atro turf for easy maintenance. “You can open the doors up, turn on the surround sound and enjoy a beer on the deck while the kids are in the pool,” said Mr Peats. Having two main living areas has been a bonus, but it’s the man cave that the hooker will miss the most. “I’ve got a big lounge in there with Foxtel, a pool table and a fridge for the drinks,” he said.
