David Bromley fans will be able to stay at the famous artist’s Hepburn Springs family home as part of a multi-million dollar plan launched by the entrepreneur who bought the $2 million property.

Six-time Archibald finalist Bromley and his fashion designer wife, Yuge, have sold their property at 21-25 Main Rd to Melbourne-based immigration lawyers Seamus and Maggie Taaffe.

The sale shattered the Hepburn Springs residential real estate benchmark by $200,000.

As the founder of luxury accommodation provider Wishlist Properties, Mr Taaffe will work with the Bromleys on the accommodation project which he says will cost between $8 million and $10 million.

“The Bromleys will be working with the architects on the villas and they will reflect David Bromley’s personality very well,” Mr Taaffe said.

“Everything is conceptual at the moment”,

The villas would also feature artwork from the Bromleys.

The Bromleys’ property, known as “The Brickyards”, features a circus tent ceiling, Japanese artist’s woodcut blocks on the walls, and antique Indian glass doors.

McQueen Real Estate director Kim McQueen said the residence was advertised with an asking price of $1.75 million to $1.9 million.

The house was expected to sell in line with an expressions of interest campaign ending May 17, but she said the Bromleys had accepted the Taaffes’ early offer.

Ms McQueen described the house as ‘stunning’ and ‘a riot of colour’.

“The kitchen sinks and taps, sculpted by Bromley, are like mythical bronze creatures, water comes out of their mouths,” she said.

The Brickyards’ sale price broke Hepburn Springs’ previous home price record of $1.8 million, set by a seven-bedroom home at 101 Main Rd in 2020.

Mr and Mrs Bromley said the carnival tent used to make part of the house’s ceiling was once part of a “rodeo-type circus” and had been given to them by the marquee operator’s trucker-in-law.

The Bromleys met the trucker when he delivered stones for the Brickyards garden.
