Take a look inside this $22m beachfront mansion - the most expensive home sold this year

There's no harm in a stickybeak...

By Holly Royce
In Australia the dream of owning a quarter acre block where one can grow some impressive Sir Walter Buffalo, stick in a Hills Host and kick the footy around with the kids is part of our national locale.
But what of those who are blessed to get their hands on more than that humble dream? What do their lives look like?
Over the years the trade of luxury trophy homes has become a great source of fascination and weekend auctions are now considered a legitimate past time among growing hordes of real estate fans across our wide brown land.
While what's going under the hammer might be well out of you price range there's no cost to taking a stickybeak ... right?
This $22M beach front mansion is a great place to start.
21-23 Webb Road, Sunshine Beach, which is now officially Queensland's most expensive home sold in the past year, was sold by Nic Hunter of Tom Offermann Real Estate who is no doubt cracking open a celebratory bottle of Dom Perignon.
"You can never put a cap on the lifestyle that people are seeking (and how much they'll pay)," He told the The Courier-Mail.
The new owners are said to have "fallen in love" with the place... and we can see why!

The estate is said to be a whopping 3,595sq m, the land component being a large influence in the sale price.
Sigh, guess we'll just have to keep dreaming for now.
