Cintamani, the redundant Noosa hinterland weekender of US-based music producer and songwriter Mike Chapman, has sold for $4.25 million through Tom Offermann Real Estate agents Eric Seetoo and Tom Offermann.

Chapman bought for the 35 hectare property just over a decade ago for $8 million. He was willing to take $5.7 million last year.

Cintimani was built by Austrian tennis champion Thomas Muster in the mid-1990s, so of course features a championship tennis court.

Is it a replica of centre court at Flushing Meadows in New York, home of the US Open. The net posts were once installed at the All England Club in Wimbledon.

The single level, five bedroom retreat offers over 1,400 sqm of living space.

The music room and studio were sure to be a driving force behind Chapman's purchase, who famously helped pen Tina Turner's hit song Simply the Best.

Muster paid $1 million for the parcel in 1994 and sold his newly built home for $7.6 million in 2002 to Stephen Walker, the co-founder of debt collection agency Collection House, and his wife Sue.

Offermann indicated the iconic Noosa country estate was selling for substantially less than replacement costs.
