‘Like a theme park’: Inside mega trophy mansion

first_img The point position affords sweeping views over Grand Canal.Beyond the boundary of trees and water lies a tennis court, manicured gardens and central resort-style pool where cocktail parties were once the norm. Chefs were also kept busy inside the commercial kitchen while a wet bar off the grand living room, a wine cellar and Hollywood cinema made entertaining easy. The main living room is bordered by gilt columns.A superyacht named Big Boss was moored on the deepwater harbour at the back while a limousine deposited residents and guests at an imposing front foyer.Double doors opened to reveal towering gilt columns, decorative dome ceilings and a sweeping ornate staircase inspired by Mediterranean architecture of the time.“You know you’re walking into something special,” said agent Mark Carew, who recalls the days when the house was first completed 16 years ago.“There was a full-time gardener, cleaners and cooks, the entire place was immaculate.” There’s a lot to take in for prospective buyers.The property is open for inspections Saturday and Sunday from noon until 1pm ahead of the auction on Saturday August 8 at 1.30pm. Mark Carew is leading the campaign alongside Nikki Dunlop of Professionals Vertullo Real Estate.

A sweeping staircase provides an invitation to explore the upper level.Currently unoccupied, the gates have been opened for the first time in the property’s 18-year history before the Chinese owners offer it up for auction next month.More than 100 hundred people turned out for the first open inspection, with many returning the following weekend to take it all in.“It’s a bit like going to a theme park, you can’t see it all in one day,” Mr Carew quipped. “It’s generated a lot of interest as you can’t see the house from the street, it’s so private.” The Mediterranean-style mansion 1525 Riverdale Dr, Hope Island.When the masterpiece known as Harbour Point first emerged on a stunning peninsula site in the exclusive Hope Island Resort, it was grand in every way.Occupying almost 5000 sqm across 11 titles at 1525 Riverdale Dr, the 1800 sqm trophy mansion boasted the largest residential presence within the Rosebank Gardens Estate.last_img read more
