The owners of a huge mansion in Victoria Australia invested $200,000 in a marketing film about their luxury home and clinched a sale for over 27 million Australian Dollars. The sale is believed to be record breaking and is the most expensive house sale in Victoria.

Victoria is the second most populous state in Australia,  geographically the smallest mainland state, Victoria is bordered by New South Wales to the north

The luxury property was originally built for an American oil tycoon Harry Cornforth in 1929-30. The home has eight bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a full-sized grass tennis court, basement cellar, a sweeping driveway, private steps to Point King beach and access to a private jetty.

The home owners splashed out over $200,000 which included a five-minute movie set in the mansion. The short film focused on a day in the life of a fictional family, the Crawfords, played by television presenter Brodie Harper and her husband.
