Australian mountain biking champion is selling up in Bardon
AUSTRALIAN champion mountain biker, Mark Brockwell, has returned from one of the world’s most popular mountain biking races to put his Bardon home on the market.
The 2017 Flight Centre Epic and MTBA National Marathon Series champion had a top 50 finish for his class in the cult classic Italian Dolomiti Superbike race through the Italian Alps, which attracted 5000 entrants.
The huge four bay garage of his Bardon home has been the workshop for his collection of mountain bikes over the past five years but the family are now keen to travel more, so the garage and the five-bedroom, three-level home has hit the market.

“The back is all retained so you don’t see any of your neighbours; you walk in and it’s like you’re in your own oasis,” Susan Brockwell said.
“It’s got a huge four bay garage that is bigger than four bays so there’s the ability to put several cars in there, and loads of mountain bikes, along the back wall.”
Boys toys aside, this multi-level home is an entertainer at heart, with a middle level that is free flowing out to the tropical gardens with open-plan living areas and floor-to-ceiling windows with glass louvres.
A mezzanine level off the kitchen and dining area has built-in desks, ideal as a homework station.
“It’s the middle level everyone falls in love with. With frameless sash windows and uninterrupted views,” she said.
The upper level has three bedrooms, including the master, and a rumpus room, while downstairs has the garage with a separate ensuited office, gym or media room.
“The kitchen and outdoor cooking area are my favourite, and just the ability to have heaps of people around.
“Christmas is always at our house and we put the dining table outside and do a big long lunch and then when lunch is over, everyone goes into their own little areas, with three living areas, and we all have our own space.”
