It is most likely named after the Balinese party hotspot, but for the sake of this story, we are just going to assume this property’s name has been misspelled.
Named Ku De Ta, or maybe that’s coup d’etat (wink, wink), this Belmont estate has a grand main residence with its very own ‘mini-me’ house.
The French version coup d’etat means to overthrow a government, and while the listing mentions nothing about ‘sharks with frickin’ laser beams’, there is a pool.
And there is plenty of room to plot, plan and scheme, a little over one hectare in fact, or even just relax in between trying to take over the world.
But despite our wild imaginations (okay, my wild imagination), Re/max Results agent Fraser Evans denied there was any connection to Dr Evil and Number 2.
Property records also seem to back up his story — not a single mention of goldmembers or shagging spies.
“The owner was in real estate and owned shopping centres back in the day. He is a lovely bloke,” Mr Evans laughed.
So Ku De Ta it is. The Balinese-style property includes a four bedroom 346 sqm main residence, a five bedroom scaled down ‘mini-me’ house that is about 76 sqm, a Balinese gazebo, a landscaped yard and a pool (with no sharks).
In the main residence, two of the four bedrooms have ensuites and the master bedroom has
his and hers walk-in robes, an elegant ensuite with a spa bath and a private balcony and terrace.
There are multiple living areas — both formal and informal — surrounded by windows and sliding bi-fold doors, a modern kitchen with a walk-in custom made butler’s pantry and multiple ovens, a media room, 500-bottle wine cellar, a steam room and a five car garage.
The ‘mini-me’ house with its five bedrooms also has three full bathrooms, a kitchen and living spaces that flow onto the covered terrace.
Outside there is a Balinese-styled gazebo with its very own custom designed commercial kitchen, a 15m resort-style saltwater pool, a 150,000L water tank that is plumbed to both houses, an operational bore, solar panels and a large shed.
There is also electric front gates with a back-to-base security system.
Mr Fraser said the main residence existed when the current owned bought the house, but they did build the smaller residence.
He said the smaller house had been used by the couple’s adult children, but could also be rented out.
“It is for sale via a tender process and we have already had multiple offers on it,” Mr Evans said.
“It has really appealed to multi-generational families.”
As for the meaning of Ku De Ta, Mr Fraser could not definitively answer life’s big question, but did say love was a theme throughout the property.
“There is love hearts in the front gate, the garden, the balustrades have love hearts,” he said.
“The theme is love.”
So clearly not evil.
