There’s no guarantee of happily ever after and it may just been for a good time and not a long time, but The Bachelor life can be yours if you want it for probably a lot less than you might have thought.
One of Sydney’s northern beaches most glamorous estates has hit the market for any wide-eyed and highly aspirational renters who want to enjoy the finer things in life.
The epic and aptly named mansion La Joie De Vivre, on Minkara Rd, Bayview, featured in the very first season of The Bachelor when Tim Robards and Anna Heinrich fell in love and remain so to this day.
The couple are flagbearers for what can happen, but usually doesn’t when it comes to reality TV and romantic set ups.
Fans of the show would recognise the stunning views over Pittwater and the European style of the manor that reminds of the French Riveriera.
“One of Sydney’s landmark properties, the distinguished La Joie De Vivre is surrounded by enchanting landscaped gardens with a commanding setting affording panoramic 180 degree views over the ocean and boat-filled Pittwater waters,” the listing reads., which could also double as a TV voiceover for the much-loved show.
“Set on an incredible 4,091sqm landholding just 30 minutes to Sydney CBD, the palatial French provincial style residence draws inspiration from the grand country estates of the Loire Valley with its regal proportions, opulent interiors and manicured grounds.”
The home is available for lease for $6,5000 a week.
Rental agent Eugene Daley from LJ Hooker Gordon said he had received a number of inquiries about the home but it just hadn’t found the right tenant. Yet.
“It is a magnificent home, something really special,” he said.
“The view just hits you as soon as you walk through the front door – you can see right over Pittwater.
“On the upper floor, the view is even better.
“It would suit CEOs or professionals with high incomes.
“It would be great to have a party with so many levels – there is a bar area overlooking the pool and Pittwater.”
The home also boasts a commercial grade kitchen inside and out, 6 bedroom suites with walk-in dressing rooms and fireplaces.
“From its sheltered setting nestled on Pittwater’s coveted Bayview foreshore, the internationally renowned estate enjoys uninterrupted views over Sydney’s beautiful northern peninsula waterways and beaches – a veritable paradise for boating and yachting enthusiasts,” the listing continues.
“The chateau-like residence has been crafted to offer the ultimate in high-end luxury designed to take full advantage of a breathtaking panorama with a northerly aspect and the backdrop of the Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park.
“A showpiece of epic proportions, the sprawling estate features every conceivable luxury with resort-style facilities designed for gala entertaining and family living on the grandest scale.
