Breathtaking Conrod Straight property to put buyer in pole position for Great Race

October 3, 2023

An extraordinary chance of a lifetime has emerged for motorsport enthusiasts and luxury property seekers, as five-acre 457 Conrod Straight, located on Mount Panorama, Bathurst – the renowned home of this week’s Repco Bathurst 1000 is set to go under the hammer with a price guide of $5 million.

Listed for sale by award-winning agent Grant Maskill-Dowton, Director of Raine & Horne Bathurst, this remarkable property will be auctioned on 17 November 2023.

“This is a unique opportunity to own a piece of iconic Australian racing history that is synonymous with Australian motorsport royalty such as Peter Brock, Jim Richards, Craig Lowndes, Mark Skaife and modern heroes such as Shane Van Gisbergen and Garth Tander, all while indulging in contemporary luxury,” Mr Maskill-Dowton said.

“We have every reason to believe that this exceptional property will capture the interest of both local and international buyers, especially given my prior success in selling a neighbouring property on Conrod Straight to an international racing car driver. This buyer just wanted a land holding on the famous racetrack.”

The great race to own a Bathurst landmark

Mr Maskill-Dowton continued, “We are also confident this property is well-priced as several properties changed hands nearby for between $3.6 and $4.2 million that are nowhere near the calibre of this property.

“It is one of the fantastic properties around the famous track, and the owners have not spared any expense in building this one-of-a-kind property.

“It will be hard to miss this superb property when the coverage of the Great Race starts this weekend, as the big V8s speed past.”

Situated on the famed Conrod Straight, this magnificent property boasts breathtaking views of the world-renowned Mount Panorama racing circuit that is set to host this week’s historic 60th running of The Great Race, the 2023 Repco Bathurst 1000.

“From the moment you step onto this sprawling 5-acre estate, you’ll be immersed in the thrill of motorsport, with a front-row seat to events like the Bathurst 1000 and Bathurst 12 Hour,” said Mr Maskill-Dowton.

“However, when the engines aren’t roaring, you can enjoy the tranquillity of the surrounding countryside and explore the historic town of Bathurst.”

This meticulously designed property features a main house and a separate guest cottage, both showcasing the epitome of luxury living. The main house includes:

  • An open-concept kitchen.
  • A chef’s kitchen with high-end appliances.
  • A media/theatre room.
  • A 15m lap pool.
  • A separate study/home office with custom cabinetry and seamless indoor/outdoor entertaining areas.

It also comes with landscaped grounds with established gardens and a large reflection pond and has a town water supply plus a 131,000-litre water tank, bore and an Ecco septic system.

The generous four-bedroom guest cottage offers fully furnished separate accommodation and an extensive deck entertaining area with a BBQ and soaring views over Bathurst towards the mountains. It is perfect for hosting guests or generating rental income during race weeks.

Mr Maskill-Dowton said, “457 Conrod Straight is the landmark property of Mount Panorama. It stands out as one of the most amazing homes on the track, and we are just so excited to be involved in selling this slice of Bathurst 1000 history.”

While the property’s guide price will be $5 million, interested buyers are encouraged to contact Mr Maskill-Dowton from Raine & Horne Bathurst on 02 6331 6555 to arrange a private inspection due to the property’s unique location.
