SAE founder Tom Misner has lodged a development application (DA) for land at 255 Coolamon Scenic Drive, Coorabell.

The land is 35ha, and if approved, will feature a seven-bay car garage, a lift, cinema, gym, sauna, massage room, butler’s pantry, billiards room, infinity pool, and eight bathrooms. 

A separate music recording studio features a billiards room, gym, pool, two live rooms, an isolation room, control room, media room, office, and two-bedroom accommodation

How sustainable is it?

According to the BASIX (Building Sustainability Index) report, the development exceeds the water project score of 40 at 53.

A rainwater tank of ‘at least 20,000 litres is required’, which will connect to all toilets and all hot-water systems in the development.

A six-kilowatt photovoltaic system is also part of the DA.

  1. Lucky, greedy or just [email protected][email protected]? You tell me Barry. Who the hell needs 8 bathrooms in one house. My guess is someone with 25 kids. With the life sustaining biosphere suffering as it is shouldn’t we all be having less, using less, consuming less. The ego driven pursuit of status within the byron shire repulses me these days. It’s why I left. At least the planet will breathe a sigh of relief once humanity has consumed itself into oblivion. It’s just sad for all the innocent species we continue to take with us.
