Mansion with secret wine den raises bar in ritzy Chevron Island – realestate.com.au

The Chevron Island mansion was sold as a holiday home to a Brisbane family.


A Surfers Paradise trophy home with a secret wine den accessed by a private lift has changed hands for a hefty $6.1m.

The four-level waterfront mansion at 73 Stanhill Dr was marketed by Kollosche agents Marco De Vincentiis and Michael Kollosche. It had earlier passed in at auction before setting a new benchmark for exclusive Chevron Island with the highest price paid for a single block on the street.

The basement wine den can accommodate a collection of 3,000 bottles and has an integrated beer fridge.


It’s an intimate setting for after-hours entertaining and is serviced by an internal lift.


The designer home was built about nine years ago and has four bedrooms and four bathrooms alongside impressive luxury features, such as a cinema room with leather recliners, formal dining zone and a hand-carved marble fireplace imported from Italy in the main living area.

But the show-stopper is the walk-in wine cellar and tasting den with storage for 3,000 bottles plus three wine and beer fridges.

The extravagant feature was made for late-night dinner parties and is tucked away in the basement, accessed by an internal lift servicing each level of the home.

Mr De Vincentiis said the buyers, a Brisbane family, intended to use the property as a weekend holiday home.

“They loved the area and they loved the street, but the first time they saw the home was on auction day,” he said.

“They didn’t bid at the auction but when it passed in, they realised how much they loved it and made an offer.

“The vendor had built the home with his wife and no expense was spared. The way the property was designed, although it is a four-level home, it has an intimacy so that it doesn’t feel like a very large house.”

Twin antique chandeliers hang above the formal dining room.


The home’s high-end finishes include French oak floorboards, antique chandeliers, marble benchtops and custom walnut cabinetry.

The top level houses a lavish master suite, which has a dressing room and ensuite with rainwater shower as well as a freestanding tub, plus a private balcony capturing wide city skyline views.

Movie night never looked so good.


The property capitalises on 15.1m of main river frontage with a powered pontoon and riverside deck with two storage rooms.

Al fresco entertaining is covered with an outdoor kitchen and built-in barbecue and swimming pool near the water’s edge.

Property records show the holding was purchased by Pat Redpath O’Connor in 2005 for
$2 million.
