A French manor-inspired megamansion on the Gold Coast of Queensland, Australia, hit the market Tuesday, with a guide price of around A$35 million (US$24.2 million).
That’s a more than A$11 million price jump compared to its last selling price of A$23.75 million in March 2021, according to records with Domain.com.
Now, the 37,000-square-foot residence—located in Southport, Queensland, about 46 miles south of Brisbane—could set a record for the Australian state, according to listing agent Rebecca Moffrey from Ray White Burleigh Group. Currently, the record for the priciest sale belongs to a Sunshine Coast home that sold for A$32 million last year.
Known as Alston, the six-bedroom, seven-bathroom residence offers views of the Nerang River, the skyline and the estuary known as the Gold Coast Broadwater, or just the Broadwater. It’s also near two popular stretches of sand: Main Beach and Surfers Paradise, according to the listing.
Inside, guests and visitors are greeted by a two-level entrance hall with an imperial staircase and a crystal chandelier.
“The absolute majesty of the home just hits you. You walk in and you’re greeted by this incredible chandelier, and that’s even before you step onto the gorgeous, sun bathed terrace looking back towards the Broadwater,” Ms. Moffrey said in a statement. “The architecture just sweeps you away to the French countryside—you almost forget you’re on the Gold Coast with its stunning beaches just minutes away.”
There’s also a gourmet kitchen with marble bar, a wine room and a walk-in refrigerator, the listing said. Other amenities include a professional-grade wet bar, a study, a two-level library with a spiral staircase, a primary bedroom suite with two terraces and an indoor pool, plus a gym and sauna, the listing said. An elevator services all three levels, and there’s a five-car garage.
Outside, there are several covered terraces for dining and lounging, water features and native plantings. There’s direct access to the water via a sandy beach, and a boat dock and pontoon are included.
