If dictionaries had pictures, then Australian racing driver Paul Weel’s $12 million Queensland Estate would sit right beside the word luxury and modern. Sliding into the market with six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a massive 10-car garage and a total floor space of 4,243-square-metres, this luxurious modern entertainer is sure to dazzle anyone bold enough to dip into their pockets to purchase it.
There seems to be plenty of multi-million dollar properties hitting the market, as celebrity after celebrity turns their attention to the real estate game. Listed for AUD$11,950,000, this absolute mega-mansion located on the main river at 14 Maryland Avenue Carrara Queensland 4211, is another for the history books. Not for its asking price, but for the sheer decadence and modernity on display.
Let’s go through it one by one, shall we? The home occupies a prime-north facing land with a 37.4-metre river frontage atop a suspended concrete slab. Constructed entirely from concrete, the 1,734metre-squared home features a gourmet kitchen, spacious lounge areas, powder room, laundry, five large ensuite bedrooms, walk-in robes, cinema-style media room, and a master bedroom with his and hers basins and dual rainwater showerheads.
However, it’s not what is inside the house that has captured our attention, but what lies underneath. Passing by the motor sports-inspired Man Cave with its pool table, bar and large screen TV, we move onto the ginormous 10-car basement garage. Speaking with the Gold Coast Bulletin, Weel’s wife confirmed she prefers the “gorgeous gold foyer which has a 4.5m chandelier to match the peacock wallpaper we had made in England and our taxidermy peacock,” while understandably, Paul much prefers the garage.
“These days once you have a couple of adults and some kids, a two-car garage doesn’t really cut it anymore,” Weel said.
