An exclusive luxury home described as “Brisbane’s best kept secret” by its selling agent is likely to become the most expensive home ever to sell in the city.
The five-bedroom, five-bathroom mansion on a huge 1.01ha in Robertson in Brisbane’s south is priced at circa $25 million, around $6.5 million more than Brisbane’s current record sale price.
That record was set in 2016 when a home at 1 Leopard Street in Kangaroo Point was sold for $18,488,888, however that property subsequently sold last year for just $15 million.
The Robertson home is considered to be a “secret” because the address is being withheld from the listing and only a “fortunate few” that are deemed serious potential buyers will be privileged enough to see inside.
Real estate agent Patrick McKinnon of Place in Ascot, who is marketing the home with co-agent Drew Davies, said in the week since it hit the market, there had been strong interest, mainly from overseas and interstate buyers.
When it sells it will “smash” the current record sale price for Brisbane, Mr McKinnon believed.
The Robertson mansion was a unique home for Brisbane, being an architectural masterpiece of magnificent scale and history, with a neo-classical style, he said.
Just the house alone would cost around $10 million to replace, he said.
The beautiful interior features bespoke chandeliers and lavish marble surfaces, with magnificent ornate ceilings.
It also boasts generously proportioned formal and informal spaces with multiple living and dining zones, a chef’s kitchen, three home office or study spaces, and a home theatre.
Outside there is a championship tennis court and pool house featuring a 25-metre swimming pool, separate spa, and a cold plunge.
Mr McKinnon said the home would suit a big family due to its size, with each bedroom being as big as a standard two-bedroom apartment.
“All the impressively-scaled bedrooms include a lounge or study/office area and the master suite is connected via a walk-through robe to the third bedroom, making it ideal to keep watch over the children,” he said.
The exclusive home is a sanctuary offering security and seclusion, Mr McKinnon said.
“It’s 10,000sqm of super, super privacy,” he said.
“The landscaping of the grounds is insane. The manicured surrounds are fully secured and the remarkable garden artistry features Bluetooth-enabled water fountains.
“You feel as though you are transformed into another world.”
