Part Disney fairytale castle, part tough-as-nails Queenslander, this amazingly fortified home was a dream brought to life by one dad and may well bring out the princess in you.
Agent Joel Clifford of Stone Real Estate Aspley said Murrumba Manor was a “never to be repeated” property.
“They say a family’s home is their castle, and this property takes that phrase to a new level,” was how he listed it.
“It’s pretty amazing,” Mr Clifford said. “The previous owner built the property and he’s left behind photos, stories and things of overseas trips in Canada and America. It was inspired by overseas travels and properties that you don’t typically see, where they have the big federation homes and the Disney castle from Disneyworld.”
The five bedroom, three bathroom, three car space home at 9 River Vista Crescent sits on a massive 1,469sq m block of land at the top of a hill, with a view stretching across several suburbs.
“He was obviously very particular about how he made it look and the materials. The end product is amazing.”
“It’s the best block on northside Brisbane to see on one angle Petrie to the mountains, out to the city and Bracken Ridge, looking over to the water the whole way as well.”
There is no price guide on the property. “What do you compare this to, it’s one of one,” he said. “It’s unique. It’s in a great location. Its facade is incredible. What do you compare it with to put a price on it. We’re open to offers.”
Built in 1997, Mr Clifford said the property was as solid as it was when it was completed.
“There’s not a single crackwork in any brick, not a single piece of movement, not a timber has moved, the place was built incredibly. It’s just like the day it was built.”
Located in Castle Hill, the property has had a lot of interest predominantly from families, Mr Clifford said.
The home has 9ft high ceilings upstairs and downstairs, timber parquetry floors, four front verandas to take in the views with double glazed patio doors, four living spaces, a wood burning fireplace, ornate ceiling roses and chandeliers, a three car lockup garage and a security system throughout.
