The three-bedroom home set on a sprawling 8356 square metres is a far cry from the glitzy villas of Mallorca and Fiji, where filming took place for seasons one and two of the reality show, but it’s no less impressive.

The semi-rural parcel of land in Matcham, north of Sydney, is 10 kilometres from Terrigal and less than a 20-minute drive to Wamberal and Forresters beaches.

Built in 2000, the Hamptons-inspired home has a backdrop of native bushland and an outlook to rolling green gardens.
