Sometimes, there are no words to describe the magnificence of a room within a luxury estate. And when we say luxury, we mean royal.

The kitchen of this architecturally-designed home is beautiful, but the price tag is more about the size of the property itself (48ha) and the fact it comes with not one but two homes. Both homes were designed by Kathy Barnsley and have modern elegance and sustainable features at their hearts.

Price: $9 million +


The rustic kitchen of our dreams. Exposed trusses, chandeliers and a patchwork backsplash, what more could a girl who loves Luke Combs ask for?


Designed by renowned Architect Richard Rowe, this classic full-brick residence stands as a testament to architectural brilliance.
