Every kid’s dream home in Sydney’s Linfield has reportedly sold for between $11 million and $12 million, after spending just 16 days on the market.

‘Why every kid’s dream home?’ you ask.

“There’s a stainless steel staircase complete with a stainless steel slide, to make sure you can get from the top floor to the main living area in record time,” Curran said.

The home is called ‘Earth, Wind and Fire’, and was reportedly sold to a local family for between $11 and $12 million on 22 October, according to Realestate.com.
