The sleek chef’s kitchen.
Situated on a 1,477sq m north-facing block, the Seniors have recently renovated the mansion which has 30m of water frontage and covers 100sq m across two levels, making it one of the largest homes in the island resort.
The home has twin sweeping staircases.
It has an office, multipurpose room, home theatre, chef’s kitchen, ensuited bedrooms, seperate guest suite, pool, pontoon, jetski dock, vegetable garden and a signature putting green.
Mr Casbolt said selling 3113 Riverleigh Dr was a difficult decision for the couple but they were needing to downsize.
The home is one of the biggest in the resort and has a putting green.
The Seniors have owned several properties on Hope Island over the years, including 2204 Taromeo Court, which also had a putting green and which they sold in 2018 for $2.7m.
Last year they bought a vacant block of land on the island in Forest Hills Drive for $790,000 and they also bought a block of land in Brisbane’s Coorparoo in 2019.
The house has 30m of water frontage.
Mr Senior turned a professional golfer in 1978 and managed to win 34 tournament victories around the globe during an illustrious career spanning four decades.
He retired in 2016, taking home at the time more than $16.6 million in winnings from his victories.
