Chateau Martine, the Brighton property inspired by the Palace of Versailles, was passed in at $6.5 million at this week's private auction through Jock Langley of Abercromby’s.
Chateau Martine had attracted interest from buyers from China, Singapore, Hong Kong and Taiwan during its marketing campaign. There were two auction bidders.
The Martin Street, Brighton, property was built for Melbourne businessman Will van de Linden in 2008.
It's on the market “walk in, walk out”, with all furnishings included. Langley says the furnishings are worth $10 million.
The Louis XVI furniture was custom-made room by room from reproduction specialists in Valencia for the four-storey property on an 850-square metre-block close to the beach.
It is serviced by a lift.
“It’s been a home designed around a concept. It’s a unique museum piece, and there will be a right buyer for it,’’ Langley says.
