Accessories company founder, Mara Spong, who supplied for many stores including Billabong, is still seeking $15 million plus for her waterfront trophy home at Surfers Paradise.

Mara calculates a replacement cost could actually equal $20 million.

The most expensive house on the Gold Coast's Isle of Capri, the six bedroom property is spread across four blocks with a large waterfront view.

The home was leased by film star Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson whilst he was filming on the Gold Coast.

The property was architecturally designed and custom built with Rosewood floors, Oregon timber beams and sandstone walls.

There is an entertaining wing with a 12 seat dining table, bar area, cinema room and a billiards den which opens to a rainforest garden.

The property also features a gym, sauna, salt water pool, spa, BBQ kitchen and a temperature controlled, 7,000 bottle wine cellar.

Even a six car basement car park is included which is connected to the main residence by an internal lift. 

Nicolette van Wijngaarden and Heath Williams of Unique Estates have had the listing of 59 The Corso since May last year with it being on the market for over 800 days in total.

The residence was completed in 2000 by surfwear industry pioneer Doug Spong and then-wife Mara.
