A luxurious award-winning mansion with sweeping waterfront views sent thousands into a spin when it hit the market this month, and has quickly become one of the most viewed properties in Australia.

The extravagant five-bedroom home sits right on the river in the central Gold Coast suburb of Benowa Waters and features a fully-equipped bar, wine room, resort-style pool and a palatial main suite.
