Seriously ignoring opinions on good and bad design, if I had a billion dollars burning a hole in my pocket, I wouldn't be building a 3br home in the burbs. Why not build something as big as a hotel. These people buy Realestate in the same way people buy cars, watches, paintings etc.... Bigger faster better. We're all guilty of it.

Would it be wrong to own a collection of 40 cars vs a house with 40 rooms. You can only be in one at a time.

And to put those numbers into perspective, the average house price in Melbourne is approaching $500k, so based on 7% that would mean the average house owner would be worth over $7m.

So $70m for his house is well within the normal "family" budget.  :thumbsup:

Like this Dave.....

on my phone at the moment, will post one of my favourite designs tomorrow. I'm a big fan of sandstone houses. The 'sandcastle' is one of my favourites here in adelaide.

Wow, some incredible mansions, never realised they came that big in Australia!

Although this one looks more like a Lego house:

The highest for a place on Sovereign goes to this one. It was built by the same couple that built Bellagio, though this was during better economic times so they got their double digit millions (can't remember if they got the full 16 they wanted or the figure 12.5 comes to mind). Well the new owners are now trying to get $16 mill for it, not likely now or ever.

I have always been undecided about that one, maybe a bit to 'modern' for my liking.

It was $11m in 06.
