The grand home at 6 Queen Guineveres Place, Sovereign Islands, featured in the Netflix series Lunatics. The show’s arrogant real estate agent, Quentin Cook, had no luck selling the property, but maybe the real life one will. Source: Netflix The property had more than $500,000 spent on its renovation.Owner Leo Nipperess and partner Brett Park bought the property five years ago and spent more than half a million dollars renovating it.Mr Nipperess saw it as a fun opportunity when a talent scout knocked on their door and asked to feature the property in show.“There were three other houses on Sovereign Islands used but ours was the major one,” he said.“It was quite amusing, there were about 25 people who turned up in mini vans just to look at the house and check it was OK.“They used the house for the day, filmed there, had a DJ set-up, they also made a joke (in the episode) about it having two dishwashers — it was fun.” Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayNext playlist itemMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 0:36Loaded: 0%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -0:36 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedQuality Levels720p720pHD540p540p360p360p270p270pAutoA, selectedAudio Tracken (Main), selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.
