Broadcaster Alan Jones' 27-hectare property, known as Elizabeth Farm and Charlieville in a nod to his parents, has been officially launched for $16 million to $17.5 million through Forbes Global Properties’ Ken Jacobs and Christie’s James Hall.

It was previously known as Sanford Orcas when the former 2GB presenter purchased it for $2.6 million in 2003, and promptly redesigned it, including linking the two main residences by a central courtyard to create a 10-bedroom homestead he shares with his niece Tonia Taylor and family.

It is billed in the marketing as like the “setting of a classic children’s novel”, with a private natural forest called Wombat Woods, immaculately maintained gardens complete with life-size sculptures of an elephant and giraffe, and an ornamental lake with blue-dyed water and a row-boat for the island that looks straight out of the pages of Toad of Toad Hall.

The 10-bedroom homestead has formal lounge and dining rooms adorned with mementoes of Alan Jones’s public career.

The top equestrian facilities are no doubt favoured by Tonia given her passion for dressage, and there is a tennis court and pavilion for tennis coach husband Justin.

As well as a grand dining room and formal lounge (adorned in mementoes of Jones’s public career), there are walk-in dressing rooms that would make Jennifer Hawkins jealous and a hootenanny shed laden with the family’s many equestrian awards.

Jones still has his Circular Quay apartment in the Toaster he bought for $10.5 million in 2017, but looks to be planning to spend more time on the Gold Coast, judging by the $12.25 million riverfront house he bought in Southport last year.
