Kim Dotcom's famous Coatesville mansion sold in private deal
The famous Kim Dotcom mansion in Coatesville has been sold for an undisclosed price.
The property, 35kms northwest of Auckland, had been on the market since January, and Barfoot and Thompson saleswoman Christina Tang said the vendor and buyer were "thrilled" with the result.
Tang said there had been several interested parties in negotiations for the property which had a capital value of $22.55 million.
Tang said details of who had bought the property and for how much was "confidential".
"With the support of a far reaching and highly targeted marketing approach, this one-of-a-kind property attracted interest locally and abroad," she said
"We fielded hundreds of enquiries and hosted multiple qualified purchasers at private viewings."
The Coatesville mansion hit the headlines in internet mogul Kim Dotcom infamous police helicopter raid, with his ex-wife fleeing in a golf cart.
It was labelled as one of New Zealand's most expensive houses and had been reported as being on the market for a cool $35m.
Dotcom leased the mansion from Chrisco multi-millionaire Richard Bradley, but was blocked from purchasing the property by the Overseas Investment Office as he did not meet the "good character" test.
The property has many extravagant, and expensive, features.
The 2375 square metre mansion is set in its own vast 22.6 hectare park, has its own lake, boathouse, vineyard, and a crafted stone bridge that wouldn't look out of place in The Shire.
The house itself, which was designed by architect Greg Noble, took years to build with stone from China and Italy, and fittings from France and Italy including a walk-in wardrobe as big as many people's living rooms.
And then there's the separate building for staff and garaging for up to ten vehicles. This building includes the cottage quarters and the barn – a special living and play space for children.
