A BRISBANE buyer has spent millions to take a jawdropping cliffside ‘castle’ in the city’s hinterland off the open market.
An auction planned for the stunning four bedroom home in Jollys Lookout was cancelled over the weekend after an eager buyer made an offer the owner could not refuse.
Agent Joseph Lordi of Queensland Sotheby’s International Realty Brisbane confirmed to The Courier-Mail that an unconditional $4.1 million contract on the property was sealed on Friday, less than 24 hours before the home could go under the hammer on Saturday.
The four bathroom, nine car space property is just half an hour northwest of the Brisbane CBD with a massive 26 hectares attached to it.
Bound by giant walls of glass on the cliffside and secure walls of concrete on the roadside, the home at 948 Mount Nebo Road was listed as having been designed with meticulous attention to detail by architect Dion Seminara.
It’s loaded with state of the art security and electronics, with “breathtaking panoramic views from an exclusive rural setting enjoying north and south views”.
“It’s an amazing 897 sqm home, perched above Samford Valley,” Mr Lordi said.
“All four bedrooms are ensuites and the master suite even has an electronic lock panic room. It was built in 2004 with an Asian influence.”
“There’s nothing else like it,,” said Mr Lordi who was marketing the property with colleague Edward Vallis.
“There are a lot of acreage homes but this one is sort of like a mountain range cliff face.
“There is demand for these unique properties. We had a whole range of buyers wanting to host receptions there, AirBnb, and local homeowners wanting to live there.”
Mr Lordi said a local buyer snapped up the home. The house has 140-year-old teak floors, panoramic views from every corner and an infinity pool with separate pavilion housing a sauna, spa bath and a bathroom.
