Former V8 Supercars driver Steven Johnson lists Queensland home

The former V8 Supercars driver Steven Johnson, son of Dick Johnson, has relisted his Maudsland home, 16 kilometres inland from the Gold Coast.

The five-bedroom house, at 28 Lagoon Park Drive, has 900 square metres of living space.

The fully automated house comes with ensuites for every bedroom, a luxury home cinema, a guest house, multiple garages for nine vehicles and a 19 metre swimming pool adjoining an impressive outdoor living and entertainment area with a six-person spa and a teppanyaki bar.

It is in a Riverstone Crossing Estate in Maudsland, an exclusive community with its own security guards, an environmental maintenance team, its own gym and leisure centre, and sporting grounds. Any buyers will have to pay $52.51 per week in community costs.

Johnson bought the property for $575,000 in December 2007.

According to RP Data, Johnson had the property listed for sale from May 2011 to March 2012 without selling – 280 days.

It goes to auction on May 12.

The property was designed Steven and his wife Bree for entertaining as well as family time with their children Jett and Lacy.

"I wanted more space for motorbikes and my son races go karts and we have a tinny and other equipment -- I wanted the man shed so to speak I guess," Johnson told The Gold Coast Bulletin.

"There's no people out here. With the racing side of things it's very hectic and there's a lot of people around so when I come home I don't feel like I need to deal with people, I can come home and relax without a neighbour at the back fence asking how I went in my last race."

Johnson, nicknamed Junior, debuted at the Australian Touring Car/V8 Supercar Championship Series in 1994 and has had 366 race starts, three race wins and 11 podium finishes.

He announced his retirement from V8 Supercars earlier this year.

He currently competes in the Australian Carrera Cup Championship.
