    Only so many people can buy in that section of the market. Sometimes those big mansions have the biggest losses.

    I quite like the place even though its not my typical style.
    $3M in Brisbane is very top end.

    That is my sort of house. I would move into that in a heartbeat. ;)

    Not my type of house. I like the one we did in your Coorparoo Wylie, the Normandy style up on the hill, about finished now. Was green roofed and had 1 turret before it was expanded.

    On a street with the first letter used twice? Used to be owned by a well known figure?

    And if we are on the same page, then I know that house well, used to live a few doors away, knew the family that lived there and have been inside. I'm curious now to know what you mean by the "one we did"?

    Yes. I did the planning on the extension (assuming you can call making it 5 x bigger an extension)

    You did the planning for having it approved to be built (town planning), not the planning on the look of the end product?

    Do you like the end product?

    Yes, although wasn't completely finished last time I went past.. The summer house is awesome. The huge basement garage has a gym and a wine cellar in it. Very sympathetic to the original Normandy style while opening up the views. Absolutely not my design though, I worked closely with a very talented architect (he painted what the finished product would look like in water colours) who designed it based on what the client wanted.

    I'm sure it is amazing... but all a bit "Disney" for my liking. Too new and shiny. I liked the old place. It was a bit shabby, but genteel. Maybe when the gloss levels tone down it will look like it was always there. The original owners would be tut-tutting I think :D.

    Very European. I guess the roof pitch helps keep the snow off...

    That's riverside waterfront money.. I don't know Clayfield that well but seems like too much for 1619sqm.
