This European style riverfront mansion, dubbed Alston, is located at 5 McMillan Court in Southport, Queensland, Australia. Built in 2010, the home was first put on the market in July of last year with an asking price of $22 million. It was built by bankrupt developer Graham Spottiswood and wife Suzanne. The land was bought from Split Cycle engine inventor, the late Rick Mayne, for $2.35 million in 1998. It will be auctioned off on January 27 by John Natoli and James Ledgerwood (of McGrath Broadbeach) and is expected to fetch around $10 million or half its original asking price.
The home features approximately 24,000 square feet of living space on 3 floors with 6 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, formal living and dining rooms, gourmet kitchen, 2-story office/library, custom bar, gym, home theater, billiards room, indoor swimming pool with spa and a 7-car garage. There is also an outdoor courtyard and boat dock.
