How the stars live! Inside Cate Blanchett’s Hunters Hill home


If you’ve always wanted to get a glimpse into the homes of the rich and famous, this look at the interior of a Hunters Hill mansion is for you! The $20 million property formerly owned by Cate Blanchett and her husband Andrew Upton is listed for lease from May. Take a walk through the amazing estate!


Cate Blanchett’s former Hunters Hill property, Bulwarra, is on the market for tenants.

The famed actress and her playwright husband Andrew Upton first sold the jaw-dropping $20 million estate, which is now listed for lease from May for an estimated $10,000 a week.

The property was built in 1877 and retains many of its charming historical features, including a sandstone exterior synonymous with Sydney’s early architectural style.

Inside, however, the home has undergone an impressive modern makeover that highlights a centrepiece three-storey staircase and increases the interior space with clever designs.

The sleek modern refit reflects the actress’ famous style, but the renovation is lent a touch of warmth by the heartwarming family portraits scattered throught the home, including pictures of Cate’s new daughter Edith, as well as a rendering of the Oscar-winner and her husband.

The stunning design allows the outside to blend seamlessly with the inside, large windows framing water views and hillsides vistas. A tennis court offers players a breathtaking water view. The home also boasts a  separate self-contained apartment under the swimming pool.
