It’s not uncommon for celebrities to rack up vacation homes in Europe or the Caribbean, but Cate Blanchett opted for a getaway pad that is much farther from Hollywood.
The Academy Award winner bought a house in the Republic of Vanuatu (located between Fiji and her native Australia) in 2011, and now she’s selling it for $1.4 million.
The stunning beach house, dubbed Matanara, is located on the island of Efate, and offers total seclusion.
The property is set back from the road, is surrounded by palm trees, and has a private strip of beach overlooking the calm Undine Bay.
“Created as a designer holiday home, this piece of paradise was built with beach living and privacy in mind,” reads the listing.
“Standing on the soft white powdery sand, we counted at least seven shades of blue in the water that the property fronts.”
Two modern pavilion-style buildings, which are connected by a large timber deck, make up the mansion.
Four bedrooms and two bathrooms are spread through the structures, as well as a living room, dining area, and kitchen.
The walls slide open, turning the common areas into a seamless indoor-outdoor floor.
All of the bedrooms have multiple windows, and some open entirely to the outside with sliding walls.
There is also a separate garage and boat shed on the property, which are perfect for storing water toys.
