Ye gods!

Although there is technically no height or number of floors requirement in as atndard Residential Zone Melbourne there is a standard height requirement of 10 metres and this monstrosity would not meet nearly every other standard for residential development!

A good example of why in Victoria the phrase 'we don't want our area to end up like the Gold Coast' is heard so often :)

What a disjointed mess! How on earth could that get approval? Here, just putting a couple of posts up for a carport is a big issue, forget that piece of tacky junk.

It's in Redcliffe from memory, not the GC.

And a shocker no doubt.

That's good cos your average suburbian Kath and Kim in their 80's style ramsey street brick home couldn't afford a designer house on the waterfront on the GC anyway.

It's still better than the mundane shit next to it. I think 3 floors may have been adequate on this one though and it may have look alot better too.

They could have chosen the colour better also - all-in-all though it would be nice to live in I think.

The most extravagant house in Townsville is 5 Melton Tce - it has 5 levels as well. It's currently on the market for $3.8m, making it the most expensive residential property ever in Townsville. You can check out it out on RealEsate.com.au here. It was built by the CEO of local company Storm Financial. It's the grey job at the top of the Melton Hill:



The only other house with more then 2 storeys I know of in Townsville is this 3 storey one on Fairlight Cr, Annandale, overlooking the Ross River. I ride past it on my way to uni every day.

The Kath and Kim house in Patterson Lakes actually is on the water, they probably had 2nd thoughts on the Sylvania Waters connotations.

Lol, what are the odds (don't watch Kath and Kim as you can tell).

Half the problem with that house you could fix by repainting it and changing some of the glass, at least get it to a non offensive state.

check it out guys.this LA house wet on sale today for 99mil$aus



House hunters rejoice. We've finally found the house that your neighbor can't top. The OC Register reports that a $75 million beach-side mansion shaped like a seashell and named after a mushroom has gone on sale for a price of $75 million. Yes, that's $75 million dollars American.

The "Portabello" mansion in Corona del Mar, according to the listing agent John McMonigle's Web site, features ocean views from most rooms, and is designed like a nautilus shell.

Other features include a two-story grotto with a pool, two spas, a swim-up bar, tunnel slide, poolside lounge room and barbecue area.

It also boasts an "entertainment level" basement with a bowling alley, art deco theater, automotive museum, café and full exercise facility.

According to the home's title report and Zillow, the home's estimated value is $29 million, based on land of $13 million, and improvements of $16 million. So for that $75 million price tag we also assume that there's a family of magical, wish granting dolphins living in the grotto and the faucets have a spigot for Cristal.

designer? gold coast?

don't make me laugh, if there were ever a cookie cutter template for development in Australia it would be the gold coast.

His comment had nothing to do with Melbourne and everything to do with the Gold Coast; and he's right.

Can someone explain to me what's so great about suburbia in Melbourne that it's supposed to be better than Gold Coast suburbia? As seems to be implied in some of these posts?

Cos I've been to both and I saw more nice houses on the coast.
