Chris Hemsworth Shares The First Photo Inside His $20 Million Byron Bay Mansion
The Australian celebrity has shared a photo of a transformed "big empty wall" inside his huge $20 million Byron Bay mansion that is almost complete.
The 'Thor' actor gave us a glimpse inside his property while explaining he hired a local artist to complete a mural in the home he will share with wife, Elsa Pataky, and their three children, Tristan, Sasha and India.
And it appears gone are the days where a feature wall is a block colour, different to the rest of the colour palette of the home.
Hemsworth commissioned a huge ocean inspired mural, attributing the work to "one of his favourite artists" Otis Hope Carey, who created it by utilising traditional symbols and imagery.
"Otis Hope Carey painted this mural which focuses on representational imagery of the ceremonial dancing of the Gumbaynggirr people, weaved together with traditional forms in thanks to their totemic spiritual emblem ‘GAAGAL’ (Ocean)," Hemsworth wrote.
"Long shifting black lines ripple across the wall demonstrating the power and energy emanating from dancing feet stomping into the ground," he added.
"Blue circular line work is painted over the top throughout the composition in reference to the Ocean in an act of thanks for its healing powers and all that is received from it."
The home, which is estimated to have cost the Hemsworths $8.8 million to build, is near completion after construction began 18 months ago.
The famous pair paid $7 million for the property when they purchased it in 2014 but chose to knock down the eight-bedroom Balinese-style mansion and instead build their own.
When the home is finished it will include six bedrooms, a gym and steam room, media room and 50 metre infinity pool on the rooftop.
The property is 12 kilometres away from Byron Bay, located in Broken Head and spans over 4.2 hectares.
When construction on the property first began, the mansion was called “obscene, greedy, flashy and vulgar” by local residents.
