Aussie motorsports fans have a rare chance to snap up a home alongside the famous Conrod Straight at Mount Panorama - but the opportunity will cost an estimated AUS $2.7 million. While public road for the majority of the year, the main road outside the property is converted into one of the world's most inconic tracks several times a year - notably for the Bathurst 1000 and Bathurst 12 Hour events.
The scenic circuit has a number of properties and farmsteads around its perimiter and in the foothills of the famous mountain, with prices sky-rocketing in recent years as the stature of the track - now iconic in world motorsport has grown. The beautiful home and gardens at 505 Conrod Straight was last on the market in 2002, when it sold for a more modest $255,000.
Boasting a main five-bedroom residence with a dressing room, living, dining, office, kitchen, kitchenette, laundry and extensive verandahs, as well as parking accomodation, there is also a secondary and separate four-bedroom cottage, giving the possibility of using the site for tourist rentals. A large machinery store and workshop, not to mention air-conditioning throughout, landscaped grounds and a pool and cabana make this quite a luxurious buy.
For prospective buyers with kids, the school bus also stops right at the gates to the property.
The property is located at the rise of the first crest on Conrod as cars on track head towards The Chase, giving a unique viewpoint of the fastest corner in Australian motorsport.
