EXCLUSIVE: Rare chance to secure Mount Panorama property

SAVE YOUR PENNIES – a rare chance to live every motorsport fans dream and tell people your address is ‘Conrod Straight, Bathurst’ will soon be a possibility.

A large property called ‘Grey Gums’, Number 402 Conrod Straight, is soon to be placed on the market by its current owner, Mark Rayner.

Mark is the current Mount Panorama Circuit Manager and has resided at the Conrod Straight address for 27 Years.

A desire to downsize has seen the well-known Bathurst figure place the significant property on the market, with expressions of interest being taken.

The large holding is accessed via a driveway at the exit of Forest’s Elbow, with the initial access point behind the concrete wall famously clipped by Dick Johnson in his 1983 Shootout accident.

A long driveway runs along the top of the ridge to access a property of just over 14 acres, featuring two separate houses, a pool and shedding plus a large land holding on the rear of the iconic Mountain.

The initial house was built in the late 1980s and features four bedrooms – one with en suite – a large family / meals area and a separate lounge.

The sunken lounge and family room areas overlook the estate’s swimming pool and across the Bathurst Goldfields and on to the city itself.

The second residence is located slightly lower on the block, on the city side, and was constructed just over five years ago.

The modern building is approximately 120 square metres and features two bedrooms – one with en suite – and a large open-plan living, meals and kitchen area.

That large area is surrounded by windows that, coupled with the fact the front of the building is significantly elevated with the veranda decking wrapping around the residence over the sloping property, creates incredible views out over the city and surrounds.. and Conrod Straight.

As well as access from Conrod Straight, the property has an additional bitumen sealed driveway that runs down the opposite side of the hill to College Road to allow for access at all times during events.

To express interest in the property, please contact Mark directly at this email address.
