Interest rockets in home after receivers move in

first_imgAt one stage Keith Batt of Nant Distilling Company had planned to open 20 whiskey bars across the country.INTEREST has gone through the roof just two days after receivers listed the luxury riverside home of one of Brisbane’s prominent families.Receivers moved in midweek on the 1927 Spanish mission style home of Margaret Batt, wife of bankrupt whiskey and cattle baron Keith Batt who founded Nant Distilling Company.Called El Nido, the stunning three-level home hugs the Hamilton hillside with unobstructed river and city views. The house is perched on the hill between Kingsford Smith Drive and Hillside Crescent.Mrs Batt had tried to sell the Hamilton home in December without success. The receiver sale comes just 11 months after the Batts sold their sprawling Clayfield home for $200,000 less than they had paid 24 months earlier. Within months of the Batts buying the Clayfield home Mr Batt had declared himself bankrupt in late 2015.The Hamilton property was marketed as “receiver sale – will be sold” by agents Tristan Rowland and John Bradley of Place Aspley. Since listing 19 Hillside Crescent for the receiver on Wednesday, they’ve been inundated with queries.“It’s a beautiful house, quite historic, and we’ve had a tonne of interest so far and it’s only (three) days ago it went up,” Mr Rowland told The Courier-Mail. Breathtaking views from on every level. The home at 19 Hillside Crescent, Hamilton, is Spanish mission style. A touch of Spain in bluechip Hamilton.“Interest is coming from interstate, people living locally in Ascot and surrounds, a lot of interest out of other Brisbane suburbs too.”The multimillion-dollar home has been set for auction at Homemaker City Shop 28, 825 Zillmere Road, Aspley at 5pm on Saturday April 28.The four bedroom home, which comes with a riverview pool and games room, was expected to draw strong offers given receivers – unlike banks – do not have to go all the way to auction date to sell off a property.
