Huge interest in Hanson homestead
THE house that Hanson built is attracting huge interest from across Australia.
Former One Nation leader Pauline Hanson is selling her Coleyville property and leaving Australia after more than 15 years in the public eye.
Ms Hanson released a statement confirming the move on Wednesday.
“Yes, I am planning on going indefinitely,” she said.
“I am leaving Australia and will be gone for the foreseeable future. I will be relocating to the United Kingdom.”
Exclusive listing agent and LJ Hooker Yamanto principal Keith Edwards said a 15-year-old architecturally designed home with three separate wings was the centrepiece of the sprawling 60-hectare property.
He said other features included a pool, eight-foot-wide verandas, raked cypress pine ceilings and polished pine floors.
“I think a lot of the initial reaction is based on curiosity, but you have to treat every enquiry as genuine,” Mr Edwards said.
“I’ve got a buyer with genuine interest flying up from NSW next week. I haven’t had any interest from overseas except for one time-waster who emailed me.
“In terms of exposure, you couldn’t afford to pay for the coverage the property has received because it’s Pauline’s property. After that, it’s the whole package that will sell it. I think it’s a good point that it’s her property.”
Mr Edwards said the property would be sold by tender and could comfortably support 30 head of cattle.
“A similar 16-hectare property recently sold for $1.345 million and Pauline has a house of substantially better quality and a pool,” he said.
“The amount of interest I’ve had in this property has been absolutely stand-alone. It’s really been Australia-wide.
“The home that Pauline built and called ‘Serendipity’ is fittingly one of a kind.”
Just 25 minutes from the Ipswich CBD, Coleyville is a small rural town bordered by Warrill View and Mt Walker.
