Former Hoges' Byron hinterland house sells
Duncan and Sally Mount have sold Cedar Springs, their Possum Creek, Byron Bay hinterland estate.
The entrepreneur and his former model wife bought the then 132-hectare holding from actors Paul Hogan and Linda Kozlowski in 2006 for $8.1 million.
The house was built with a dash of Hollywood splendour as the Australian base for the California-based, actors who met on the set of the 1986 international box office success Crocodile Dundee.
Built in the late 1980s, the vast home was completed in time for their 1990 wedding.
The Mounts sold before its scheduled weekend auction.
It sold through Nicollette van Wijngaarden of Unique Estates , who was telling buyers that $6.5 million would secure the property pre-auction.
Cedar Springs is eight minutes to the village of Bangalow; 15 minutes to Byron Bay, 20 minutes to Ballina Airport and 45 minutes to Coolangatta International Airport.
The Mounts sold two 40-hectare building lots during their six-year ownership.
It was initially listed in May 2009. Set on 46 hectares, the property comes with a long bitumen driveway from its main gate through rainforest trees to the grand home, which displays the craftsmanship of the Italian artisans who lived on site for over a year.
It comes with a formal lounge with a large open fire and a dining room that seats 16 overlooking an English courtyard garden.
There's a spacious conservatory/informal dining area which overlooks the pool. The house is set on the banks of the Wilson River. The property also borders Possum Creek.
