The seasoned actress and her husband, Andrew Upton, are letting go of the historic mansion now that his stint as artistic director of the Sydney Theatre Company has come to a close.
The 19th century sandstone manor—also referred to as Bulwarra—features a glass front, concrete walls, and a central steel staircase connecting each of the home’s three levels.
The upscale abode boasts five top-floor bedrooms, including the master suite nestled inside a private wing that opens to up to one of the home’s several verandas for scenic outdoor views.
The full chef’s kitchen contains ample cabinetry as well as a walk-in utilities room for endless storage.
In addition to a lower-level library, the spread includes its own tennis court, wine cellar, private garden, and direct river access.
The lavish spread also offers its very own (heated!) pool pavilion with a covered spa and hidden studio retreat.
