House and Home Design - Realestate Passion
A UNIQUE fortress-like high security Queensland estate more akin to protecting the privacy of world leaders has hit the market priced at $3 million.
Built on a reinforced concrete slab with concrete walls both inside and out, the property looks out over the stunning Whitsundays, including the Port of Airlie Marina and a beach loved by tourists.
“It is in short, built like a fortress,” according to a listing by agent Michael Kavanagh of Professionals Whitsundays.
It also has a service corridor leading to storage, cold rooms and laundry as well as a subfloor level below the third bathroom — currently used for storage.
“There are three x 44.5 kilolitre concrete rainwater tanks, a pump house with a Grundfos electric pump. The grounds are sprawling lawns and established shrubs with native forest. Chesapeake Estate is a gated estate giving owners privacy and security.”
The home at 186 Mandalay Road, Mandalay — which has three bedrooms, three bathrooms and a two-car garage — was described as “one of the most unique homes in the Whitsundays” on an allotment spanning 8.61 acres.
“Originally established as the family home of the MacDonald family who created the estate including the building of a private road.”
The house itself was 618 sqm with an enormous patio area of 230 sqm.
