"Norm Provan spared no expense when he built his palatial hinterland retreat a decade ago on 54.5 acres of lush, leafy acres in Diamond Valley.

“This is a property fit for a king! Well, at least a sporting legend,” Mr Wilson said.

Tucked well away on a quiet, rural road, Maleny is a five minute drive to the west and the Sunshine Coast beaches are a 25 minute drive to the east.

It comes with fruit trees, dams, twp storage sheds and paddocks for livestock.

The land cost $225,000 in 1995 when the Provan's moved from Sydney's Lilli Pilli after selling for $550,000 in 1993. Norm Provan sold President Avenue retail premises at Caringbah for $750,000 in 1997.

Since 2007, they also have a home on the Sunshine Coast at Golden Beach, near Caloundra.

"The Provan's have lovingly created this amazing home and had many wonderful memories here over the years; however, it's time for them to downsize and move on to the next phase of their lives," says Ben Wilson.

They have been keen to sell since May last year.

A 28 hectare Queensland Tablelands district potential residential development site at Kuranda has been listed by the couple with a $1 million asking price.
