Today's estate Mandalay Coral Gardens, in north Queensland, was voted Australia's House of the Year by the Australian Master Builders Association in 2007-2008. The home was designed by architect Peter Connelly and constructed in 2005 by owner Bill Sharpe, whose firm was the 2007–2008 "builder of the year" in Australia. The home sits on a peninsula with views of the Great Barrier Reef and has over 13,000 square feet of space. The four-bedroom home's automatic sliding glass walls and terraces enhance the views and the infinity pool wraps around three sides of the house. There is also room for your own fleet with a 24-berth private marina and a private helipad. The house comes with a private beach and Tepanyaki pavilion with a kitchen, powder room and dining area. The property includes a caretaker's house, office and gym. It is expected to sell for around $10 million
