Scraping the surface of LM’s financial quagmire
The only sound at the Maddison Estate sales office at Queensland’s Pimpama is a steady trickle from the garden’s water feature.
Poking through the trees close to the road, off the M1 highway between Surfers Paradise and Brisbane, a huge billboard carries the face and signature of the man who inspired the water feature – stripper-turned-landscaper Jamie Durie.
Behind the sales office stretches 118ha of unrealised potential.
Knight Frank agent Tony Hymus says he gets 10 calls a day about Maddison.
