An $11m waterfront mansion — at a site where General Douglas MacArthur once led the Pacific campaign — is the hottest house in the country after going viral.
The trophy home sits on the hillside overlooking the Brisbane River just 2.5 kilometres from the CBD and was the most viewed residential listing in the country in the past week.
Figures show the home at50 Dauphin Terrace, Highgate Hill,beat every other property currently listed on realestate.com.au including a stunning three house property with Airbnb income in Noosa and a luxurious trophy apartment just off Hyde Park in the Sydney CBD.
Agent Emil Juresic of NGU Real Estate said if any property was going to excite people, it was this one.
“I was expecting for this property to gain a lot of attention. We think this is one of the icons in Brisbane, it’s an amazing home, so close to the city, with close to 4000sq m at a price of $11m.
He said they “created marketing good enough that will be loud enough” for a home like that, but there was no taking away from the fact that it was simply a stunning home.
“It had 55,000 views online in the first 24 hours of launching the property. On Facebook, it’s had 1,100 likes and 1,600 comments. Our video is already 86,670 views in one week. It’s gone viral absolutely.”
Mr Juresic said the expectation was that a home like that would see “quite high” interest levels.
“We’ve already had private inspections, and will continue having by appointment. A home like this suits that rather than open homes. We are in discussions with a few interested parties.”
The property has two-street frontage, two self-contained guest quarters, 60m river frontage, a pontoon for a 60m vessel, seven bedrooms, four bathrooms, parking for five cars, a car inspection pit in a separate two-car carport, a chairlift from the lower level to the ground level, a 23m gas-heated pool, four separate decks, an electronic boat lift, boathouse, two workshops, a mancave and provision for a 2000-bottle wine cellar.
