The upcoming project designed by Melbourne-based architect firm SSdH includes a pavilion-style dual-level home that aims to integrate itself into its natural surroundings.

The house would be cut into sloping land with expansive views over Seven Mile Beach and the Pacific Ocean.

Inside the house will include two open-plan living areas, five bedrooms with an ensuite in each and a rumpus room that wraps around an internal courtyard.

Outside is designed as an entertainer’s paradise, with a cabana, terrace and 18-metre pool.

The house will also include a sauna and gym.

A breakdown of the costs associated with the build on the planning report includes $315,000 for the swimming pool and a further $29,000 for the sauna and steam room.

The lavish home will also include a $74,000 fireplace.

Hemsworth isn’t expected to be in need of a rental property during the build process.

He also holds another property in Newrybar property known as Newrybar Downs which he bought in 2020 for $6.5 million.

The luxury five-bedroom home has two wings built around the swimming pool and inside has a mix of formal and informal spaces, a sleek kitchen and spacious bedrooms.

The Hemsworth take-over of Byron Bay

It’s not the only property owned by a member of the Hemsworth family in the Byron Bay area.

Big brother Chris and his wife, actress Elsa Pataky, purchased a 4.2-hectare estate in Broken Head with an eight-bedroom resort-style home known as Kooeloah in 2014.

Construction of the enormous house, dubbed ‘Fortress Hemsworth’ and described by neighbours as resembling a Westfield shopping centre, began in 2017 and took three years to complete.

The mammoth property, which spans six bedrooms, a media room, a gym, a spa and a 50-metre infinity pool, is estimated to be worth around $50 million now.

The couple also owns a Broken Head horse ranch and retreat, purchased in 2019 for $4.25 million.

The 35-hectare site was developed to include state-of-the-art horse stables and dressage, show jumping and horse exercise arena.

Luke Hemsworth, who is the eldest of the siblings, also owns a multi-million-dollar beachfront home at Suffolk Park.
