"Thor" Chris Hemsworth Chooses Australia, Leaving Behind a $6.5M Listing
"Thor" lead role Chris Hemsworth and actress Elsa Pataky have relocated with their three young children to his native Australia, leaving their secluded estate in Malibu. The couple is asking $6.5 million for the spacious home they bought from another Australian native, "Crocodile Dundee" star Paul Hogan, in the exclusive Point Dume district.
Listing agent Ryan Davis of the John Aaroe Group's Aaroe Estates claims that he knows Hemsworth and his siblings very well. He even helped "The Hunger Games" actor Liam Hemsworth find his house in Malibu. Davis added that the Hemsworths are wonderful to work with.
The 6,800-square-foot property, remodeled by the crocodile wrangler before the People's Sexist Man Alive and his wife bought it, features a luxurious fireplace, a grand gourmet kitchen with high ceilings, a giant center island and spacious storage, and exposed shelves for displaying decorative glassware.
An enormous master suite comes with a seating area, two walk-in closets, and a private lanai with ocean and mountain views. Three additional en-suite bedrooms are perfect for children and visiting Australian siblings, plus there is a bonus bedroom, a guest house, a library and office spaces, Variety reported.
Costly and sophisticated wide plank white oak floors run throughout the not exactly open but certainly interconnected main floor residence spaces that include a formal living room with a small adjoining vestibule hidden behind the staircase. It opens to a trellis-shaded brick terrace that runs along the backside of the home. Pocket doors divide the living room from the formal dining room with walls covered in a metallic and stunning greenish-gray.
Davis says that Point Dume is popular with tourists because of its rocky promontory along the beach. It is popular among locals for its excellent preschool and elementary schools. It also offers a plaza with a coffee shop, grocery store and other services that make the rural nature of Malibu more convenient, Refinery reported.
