Great Gatsby mansion for sale
THE former owner of Queensland takeaway-chicken chain, Brodie's, has put his decadent riverfront mansion on the market.
Mark Brodie, who was chosen to run the state-owned Gladstone Ports Corporation after the Liberal National Party government won office in 2012, was also a political confidant of former premier Campbell Newman.
Brodie established the takeaway-chicken chain in Gympie in 1987 and is currently the chair of the National Retail Association.
The lavish estate in King Arthur Terrace, Tennyson, is like something out of the pages of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby.
The property encompasses more than 3,500 sqm of riverfront land, with a five-bedroom main residences, a three-bedroom guesthouse and a third building that could be used as a gym or office - all spread across three titles.
Features include an eight-person spa with sweeping views, internal lift, a wine cellar, 12-seat cinema, riverside pavilion with its own kitchen and bathroom, private jetty and pontoon, in-ground pool and tennis court.
Records show the property was last listed for sale in 2004 for $4.2 million.
It's for sale via tender through Sarah Hackett of Place - Bulimba, with inspections by appointment only.
