A Gold Coast mega-mansion so extravagant that it could be the set for a glitzy reality television ratings blockbuster is for sale – and it could prove an unlikely bargain.
The nine bedroom, seven bathroom Tallai home – on a nearly 9000 square metre LED-lit block – has its own nightclub, a 16-seater cinema, $200,000 tiled bathroom, huge master bedroom with retractable skylight and multiple dining rooms.
Built and formerly owned by Gold Coast developer, Graeme Ingles, the indulgent home once carried a price-tag of $15million, the Gold Coast Bulletin reported.
Pegasus, male wrestling and Greek chariots are the backdrop for the sparse but classy dining room
The current asking price is over $6.8million.
Located at 1556 Tallai Road, Tallai, it last sold for $5.8million in 2011 and has been on the market for a month. Domain estimates it could sell for between $6.94million and $8.76million.
The most unusual feature is probably the nightclub, which could easily accommodate 40 patrons at the bar, dance floor and the adjacent
outdoor seating area.
Host events with a full club-like experience including full sized wet bar, karaoke stage and dance floor as well as a purpose built 16 seat cinema; custom designed with state of the art sound system,’ reads LJ Hooker
Gold Coast’s listing.
It also has a pink ‘1500 bottle temperature-controlled
wine cellar and tasting room.
To add to the club vibe, the property has billiards and steam rooms and is equipped with a multicoloured LED feature lighting system, to highlight its many outdoor features in a spectrum of pinks, blues and greens.
These include a massive tiled pool and pool deck, an ostentatious fountain containing a bronze sculpture, glass elevator, and ‘zen garden with waterfall’.
It also has underground parking for six cars and a huge guest house at the top of the property.

Back indoors, the extravagance is perhaps best illustrated by a colossal master bedroom, which has three walk-in robes, a kitchenette, ‘a vast six-star ensuite with floor to ceiling mosaics and massive spa’ and a retractable skylight.
Then there’s the unusual but luxurious dining room surrounded by walls featuring faux Grecian murals showing what look to be a military chariot with Pegasus and Greek wrestling.
