STUNNING images of a Bayview mansion featured in The Bachelor have provided “priceless” exposure for the $ 12 million property and real estate agents believe a sale is “imminent”.
Max Walls International agent Anthony Walls said he was negotiating with a couple of buyers for the French-inspired mansion known locally as Le Joie de Vivre.
He said at least one buyer rang him after seeing the six-bedroom, seven-bathroom villa on television show The Bachelor, even though they had viewed the property previously.
“They recognised it but didn’t realise the enormity of it,” Mr Walls said.
Although he is not advertising the connection, he said people regularly asked him whether the property was the mansion from the show.
“I’ve been talking to people all over the world since it (The Bachelor) went to air,” Mr Walls said.

Mr Walls said he expected to secure a buyer soon at its $ 12 million price tag.
“I’m negotiating with a couple of parties, both of them are Australian families living overseas that have decided to resettle here permanently,” he said.
The home is owned by transport entrepreneur Greg Poche who purchased it in 2003 for $ 10 million before undertaking extensive renovations.
It features a tennis court, vast pool, and banquet dining and lounge rooms. surrounded by superb water views.
