Philippa and Alfred Goninan, of Queensland’s rich-lister Statham family, are selling their long-term family home in Broadbeach Waters’ well-heeled Monaco St.

The couple purchased the 1553sq m block in 1993 for $800,000, knocking down an old house to build what has been their family home for almost 20 years.

The architect-designed abode of solid concrete construction has held its age, with its bold design sitting comfortably among the other modern mansions found along Monaco St.

Covering 848sq m under roof, the property has five bedrooms, a driveway with porte-cochere above a six-car basement, 10m-high ceilings and vast slabs of glass that make the most of the views offered up by the block’s near 50m of water frontage.

The home takes up more than 850sq m on a 1553sq m block.


Outside feels like a holiday resort with a large alfresco area fronting the pool with a swim-up bar and Bali hut, which lead to a jetty and pontoon beyond.

A self-confessed “unfussy” person, Mrs Goninan said the house was practical and in a fabulous location.

“It’s a good family house, with a separate wing with a study for the kids, so they can be self-contained,” she said.

The house has been the Goninan’s family home for almost 20 years.

“That was great while they were growing up or now for when we have guests because they can have their own space and come and go as they like.”

Mrs Goninan said the family loved living in Broadbeach, a suburb discovered by her farming parents, Neil and Anne Statham, who fell in love with a house just a few doors down.

The house has 50m of water frontage.


The Statham family, originally from New South Wales, built a multi-million-dollar agricultural empire by supplying beef to Woolworths and other large companies, before expanding into cotton.

The house is luxurious but practical.


While Neil and Anne both passed away this year, Mrs Goninan said Broadbeach Waters and Monaco St in particular remained a hub for the Statham and Goninan families, with several family members residing in and around the street.

Despite putting their home up for sale, Mrs Goninan said they wouldn’t be moving far, having already purchased another property on Monaco St to which they will downsize.

No. 329 Monaco St will go to auction on Sunday, December 19 at 2pm through Michael Kollosche and Jay Helprin of Kollosche.

The property has stood the test of time, fitting in with the other mega mansions on Monaco St.
