Plans to build Newcastle's most expensive home have left Merewether residents fired up.
Newcastle City Council is considering a development application to partially knock down an existing luxury home on Scenic Drive and build a $7.5 million mansion.
It boasts seven bedrooms, a large gym, infinity pool and maids' quarters.
Neighbours aren't impressed though, telling council the design is too big.
They're also worried about potential subsidence issues.
Council will make a decision on the DA next week.
