Rumor mills are abuzz that Chris Hemsworth may soon call Tasmania home. As they say, there is no smoke without fire; the Thor actor has given wagging tongues enough reason to speculate that he is the lucky buyer of the stunning Piano Coves site in the northeast of Tasmania. The sprawling 1,312-acre property includes eight land titles flaunting almost 3km of ocean frontage, including numerous beaches and coves. The listing describes the property as a “vast, rare, significant, oceanfront land on Tasmania’s famed East Coast … an investment in pure lifestyle”, and/or “a blank canvas on which to create something world-class.”
Recently, Chris and his brothers, Liam and Luke, bought several multimillion-dollar properties in NSW’s Northern Rivers region. This Piano Coves oceanfront site has probably set him back by $15 million but contributed generously to his ever-expanding real estate portfolio. According to Perth Now, sales agent David Webster of Knight Frank – Launceston said the property had more than 400 inquiries since it was listed seeking expressions of interest.
Whether this incredible paradise on Earth will be Chris Hemsworth’s new home or not is questionable as he, along with his wife Elsa Pataky, spent a whopping $18 million (after purchasing it for $9 million) on their $30 million Byron Bay compound. The home took three years to build atop a picturesque hill surrounded by 4.2 hectares of secluded land with sweeping views over the area’s Seven Mile Beach. Hemsworth shares the home with his wife and three kids. As far as the Piano Coves site is concerned, it is reportedly zoned ‘environmental living’ with development approval for one dwelling on each of the eight land titles.
