Big properties hitting the market always garner a lot of attention, for Queensland, Australia’s largest home, that is no exception. Spread across almost half a hectare of land, and boasting 106 metres of sheltered water frontage – this is one of the largest homes in the country.
After years of building and millions spent on finishes by current owner Riccardo Rizzi, the lavish home hit the market last week, with a listing price of $30 million USD (around £24.5 million), a move that hopes to entice the international market into settling into the shores of the Sovereign Islands. If sold at the listed price, 26 Knightsbridge would become the most expensive sale in the Gold Coast, surpassing the previous record of AUD$27 million.
Of course, a house this size comes with some considerable amenities. Boasting 7 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms and room for 12 cars while sitting on an expansive landholding of five blocks of north-facing land, the would-be purchaser won’t be short on space and privacy. If it all seems a bit much to take care of, it’s been considered in the design with a ground floor self-contained granny flat and a staff wing.
Apart from the sheer capacious size of the property, the details also matter with the terracotta roof tiles imported from Spain, timber parquetry and marble floor throughout matched by the 8-metre tall ceilings, ornate windows reportedly as much as around £22,000 a pop and lavish furnishing from MJ Elegant Interiors.
Functionality is also key, with water-tanks on property to care for the Roman gardens, a commercial-grade lift servicing all three levels of the home and a 30-metre waterside pool and a 12 car garage for all your toys, part of the perks of this one of a kind property
A home as palatial as this also comes with a ground floor self-contained granny flat and a staff wing.
