1. Justin Hemmes historic Vaucluse mansion: $100M
''The Hermitage,'' a gothic-style palace with trademark green gables, was erected in 1831 and is a sight to behold. Its various outdoor areas offer an exotic Mediterranean vibe to them.
Outside, an asymmetrical swimming pool with a bar area and lounging space use the outstanding harbor views. In certain sections, the lush landscape is Ibizan, while in others, it's Mediterranean.
2. James Packer's Barangaroo penthouse: $72M
This premium two-story penthouse in Crown Resort's One Barangaroo skyscraper ranks at over $72 million, truly making it a trophy home. The multiple-home is a six-bedroom, double-story mansion with eight hundred square meters.
Upon completion, the compound was designed to feature multiple entertainment lounges with towering six-plus meter high windows floor-to-ceiling. The open-air protected balconies add to its grandeur, and the enormous swimming pool with its well-manicured gardens.
Indeed, the place has been converted from four individual homes before into one monolith for a more open feel!
3. Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky's Byron compound: $30M
The Hemsworths purchased this magnificent 4.2-hectare mansion in the Byron Bay region, and this 6-bedroom property is now gauged to be worth about $30 million.
Additionally, the beachside solar-powered estate boasts a gym, steaming room, entertainment TV room, gaming area, and expansive external playrooms for their three kids. A double-lane bowling alley (tenpin) is also available on the property.
Their family house has seven vehicle spaces, an extensive library, two drinking bars, and an impressive walk-in closet for Elsa Pataky, estimated at 6.8m by 4m. The fitness-obsessed couple also invested in a luxurious steam room, massage parlor, sauna room, and remarkable home gym.
While these homes are out of reach for the average person, they offer a glimpse into the lavish lives that celebrities lead. You'll be excited to know that these are often rented out while the celebrities are away so that you can get a taste of luxury for a night or two.
