Dreamworld developer John Longhurst has finally found a buyer for his Tamborine Mountain mansion.

When Longhurst listed the home last year it was reported that it had never been lived in following his $2.3 million purchase from former Broadbeach Councillor Eddy Sarroff in 2010.

Longhurst told news.com.au that it was 'time to move on' following a $5 million redevelopment of the home that has never been permanently occupied.

Longhurst gutted the entire home and rebuilt it to his own specifications.

Built in an A-frame shape on seven hectares, the three level, five bedroom home was influenced by American architecture and features a home theatre and a stainless steel elevator.

A protruding rectangular section houses the master suite with walk-in dressing room and ensuite with spa.

The tourism veteran had originally planned to build a Dreamworld-style steam train on the property, but his vision never came to fruition.

Longhurst is considered one of the Gold Coast's most successful businessman and was inducted into the Gold Coast Business Awards Hall of Fame in 2012.

He sold Dreamworld in 1989 for $180 million andĀ sold his remaining share of the Gold Coast shopping centre Logan Hyperdome for $350 million in 2013.
