Fans of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice will no doubt feel right at home in this swoon-worthy manor.

The historic estate is called Wolfsbergen and dates its history back to 1625 when the State of Holland issued a permit to six ”genteel and wealthy Men” to mine the old hunting ground. The estate has since changed hands numerous times and served as both a family home and a town hall during WWII. Today, following an extensive renovation of the house, the home is once more destined for family living.

It comprises 10 bedrooms, nine bathrooms, two dining rooms, two sitting rooms, a dine-in kitchen, an impressive reception hall, and a lift.

There’s also an indoor swimming pool, a gravel tennis court, a fitness area, a climatised wine cellar and a separate studio with a private kitchen and bathroom. All this on no less than 1.7ha.

The home is on the market with Christies International Real Estate.

PRICE: $15 million

This luxurious family home is a far cry from Hugh Grant’s flat in the iconic British rom-com Notting Hill — you know, the one with the blue door.

Spanning 610sqm of living, the multi-level home has been refurbished to the highest standards and is set on a quiet residential road.

An impressive entrance hall with open staircase sets the tone for the home, which features multiple living spaces, including an open-plan living, dining and kitchen space on the ground floor which opens out to a south-facing garden.

The home’s five bedrooms are spread out across three levels, including the spacious master which occupies an entire level by itself.

Other features include a swimming pool, gym, sauna, steam room and stylish media room.

The home is on the market with Christies International Real Estate.

PRICE: $27.4 million.


There are few things more Australian than our enduring love affair with the ocean.

And who couldn’t imagine the absolute heaven that comes with falling asleep to the sound of the waves crashing on to the beach, or waking up to the sun rising over glistening surf. Located in the exclusive Shipmates building right on the sands of Collaroy Beach, the first-floor apartment is on the market with Clarke & Humel Property and has a perfect northeastern aspect and a mesmerising, 180-degree ocean and beach view.

With direct access to the sand from the rear lawn, beachfront living doesn’t get much better. Add to that a spectacular private travertine terrace off the main living area and kitchen with an imported Italian marble island bench, and you have the perfect place to spend just about every minute of every day.
