Chateau Nous / DFW Roberts


According to the agent, Chateau Nous in Ascot, Queensland is a listed villa, built for dentist Dr George Stewart and his wife Eileen in 1938 and is the work of architect DFW Roberts.

Initially the house was built with servants’ quarters and an electric dumb waiter to move food quickly to the upstairs breakfast room. Further down the line, a billiard room and a concrete air-raid shelter were added, with a secret tunnel located from the air-raid shelter to the original garage that runs underneath the house.

Moving further down the line, new owners in 1986 added a tennis court and swimming pool, plus a new master bedroom and ensuite and considerable remodelling of the kitchen and family room. But bear in mind this place has only has three owners, with the last of those also adding their mark in 2004 with further work. If you want to be just the fourth owner of this place, $5,750,000 is the asking price — via WowHaus
