Minnamurra Mansion hits the market for $5million: Graffiti-scrawled house looks for new owner after sitting abandoned for years in Dunmore, Shellharbour City, NSW‘Minnamurra Mansion’ up for sale The property has been left untouched for years
An infamous mansion that was abandoned midway through construction has hit the market for a staggering $5million.
‘Minnamurra Mansion’ has been listed for sale with the property located on 40 hectares of land on Fig Hill Lane at Dunmore in Shellharbour City, south of Wollongong in NSW.
The unfinished estate has become a well-known local landmark and is now covered in graffiti after sitting abandoned for more than 13 years.
The six-bedroom property was meant to become a sprawling equestrian homestead before construction ceased in 2009 after the builder went into receivership.
It has sat empty and untouched in the years since, with ongoing court orders to restore the environmentally sensitive wetlands after they were damaged during the construction process.
Last September, the property was put on the market with an asking price of $6 million.
Buyers have been hesitant to take up the neglected mansion prompting the seller to drop the asking price by $1million in August.
According to CoreLogic, the property previously sold for $1,452,000 in 2015.
As well as attracting hoards of graffiti, an illegal skate park has been set up in the grounds of the house.
The property was originally known as the Dunmore Equestrian Centre homestead before its dilapidated nature earned it the new name of Minnamurra Mansion.
Although the exact dimensions of the mansion are unknown, it spans three floors and boasts an large entrance foyer with a staircase, six bedrooms, nine bathrooms and a basement level.
