Zephyr Industries Brisbane statement home has custom indoor skate ramp

10 Ludlow St, Hamilton is for sale via expressions of interest

A STATEMENT Hamilton home complete with custom indoor skate ramp and a basement garage designed to house a prestige car collection is up for sale.

The slick four-bedroom, four-bathroom home is one of Zephyr Industries’ latest luxury residential builds and marketed by Place – Ascot agents, Drew Davies and Carter Lagana, via an expressions of interest campaign.

Named ‘Soror’, the home at 10 Ludlow St is set over three levels on a 405sq m lot with a desirable north-south aspect capturing Brisbane river and city views.

It is one of a pair of contrasting, yet equally striking, newly completed homes, built side-by-side in the blue-chip inner-city enclave.

Elon Musk’s drastic move after landlord dispute

Elon Musk To Buy Twitter

Elon Musk’s net worth has reportedly dropped by $200bn since purchasing Twitter.

Twitter’s new CEO Elon Musk has received criticism after choosing not to pay the rent for the company’s headquarters in San Francisco.

Musk took over the social media platform in October last year and has faced a turbulent few months as thousands of employees have been laid off and revenue has significantly dropped.

According to a lawsuit filed this week, the company owes $199,000 in unpaid rent – with the company forced to downsize from six floors to two.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Southern California beachfront property that was taken from a Black couple through eminent domain a century ago and returned to their heirs last year will be sold back to Los Angeles County for nearly $20 million, officials said Tuesday.

The heirs’ decision to sell what was once known as Bruce’s Beach was announced by Janice Hahn, chair of the county Board of Supervisors, and state Sen. Steven Bradford, who led local and state governmental efforts to undo the long-ago injustice.

“This fight has always been about what is best for the Bruce family, and they feel what is best for them is selling this property back to the County for nearly $20 million and finally rebuilding the generational wealth they were denied for nearly a century,” Hahn said in a statement.

Bradford, who authored the state legislation that enabled the land’s return, said he supported the

The Gold Coast delivered on quirk in 2022

FROM weird sale amounts and media-hungry agents to eye-popping auctions and influencers behaving badly, the Gold Coast property market is always entertaining.

Among the quirkiest moments of real estate in 2022, a local model was caught

by security camera stripping down to a bikini to pose in front of a luxury new duplex at Palm Beach, which was marketed by Ed Cherry, of Harcourts Coastal.

CCTV footage showed brand influencer Holly Cheesman dropping her jeans to have her photo taken in front of the Jefferson Lne property’s aesthetic facade.

The snap of Ms Cheesman in a colourful string bikini became her Instagram profile picture, while pants-down footage of the bold stunt was also shared to social media by the home’s owner-builder, Nick McDonald.
