A local Brisbane family has secured the stunning Cubberla Homestead for a multimillion-dollar sum.
The abode, which also happened to come in at No. 46 on The-Courier Mail’s list of Top 50 Homes in Queensland, sold for $4.65 million.
Hail stones and torrential rain poured down on the property about half an hour before it went to auction on Saturday, but the sun shone through just as Jason Adcock of Adcock Prestige got proceedings under way.
The house was featured In Qld’s Top 50 Prestige Homes
There were two registered bidders on the day and despite the buyers being in attendance, they didn’t place a bid, and the house passed in.
The deal on the property was sealed less than 48 hours later and is the latest in a string of high-end sales in the city over the past quarter.
The five-bedroom luxury homestead was built in 1958 by the architects Cook & Kerrison. It was only the third time the house had been offered for sale.
Built in an unusual X-shaped layout, the house is made up of four separate wings spread over 1100 sqm on a single level.
A recent renovation put its interiors on par with the most chic of inner-city houses and included a designer kitchen with a calacatta marble waterfall island bench.
It has multiple living areas, including a self-contained corner that can be converted into a granny flat for older children, grandparents or guests.
Yet the draw, no doubt, was the property’s outdoor offerings, which were described by the agent as being “unsurpassable with a range of leisure activities to enjoy”.
These include a 10m pool, floodlit tennis court, herb and vegetable garden and nature walks. It is also set up for horses, with two stables, day yards, a wash bay, tack room and a feed/float shed.
Away from the house is a separate cottage overlooking the paddocks, with a kitchenette, bathroom and storage.
Mr Adcock, who has sold more than $25 million worth of property in the past 30 days, said the prestige property market in Brisbane was on fire.
