Hunter Valley home that caught the eye of Natalie Portman while filming Thor: Love and Thunder in Sydney last year sells for $3million

A stunning Hunter Valley home that Natalie Portman once considered buying has gone under the hammer for $3million.

Known as Sacred Mountain House, the four-bedroom, three bathroom spread was inspected by the American actress, 41, while she was filming Thor: Love and Thunder in Sydney last year, reports The Daily Telegraph.

Located in Mulbring, NSW, 143km from Sydney, the single-storey, two-hectare property was completed in 2020 and designed by architect Peter Stutchbury.

Portman and her French filmmaker husband Benjamin Millepied, 45, eyed off the unique home in May 2021, while she was in Australia filming the latest movie in the Thor franchise and he was directing the musical drama Carmen.

The new owner is Angelyn Lo, an account officer with retail giant Wellbeing Pharmacy.

She purchased the home from Matthew Craig and Anna Nicholls, who first bought the site in 2008 for $345,000.

A combination of country cosiness with the latest in modern architecture, the barn-like house is light, airy and spacious.

Perched on a hill and designed around a courtyard, the home has stunning views of the countryside and enormous barn doors that open out to the landscape.

Designed to connect the interiors with the surrounding natural wonders, the house boasts spacious open-plan living areas, large windows and rammed earth walls.

Custom-made sliding panels were created for the main living space, allowing homemakers to scale the room to their needs.

Interior features include handmade copper sinks, solid brass taps and Swiss-made kitchen appliances from V-Zug.

Dominated by exposed wood finishes, the carpentry includes custom joinery, while the subtle lighting is by TOVO & Iguizzini.

Portman and her family were last spotted in Sydney in February.

Portman and Millepied were seen at Bronte Beach where they shared a kiss during what appeared to be a child’s birthday party.

The Oscar winner abruptly pulled out of her movie Days of Abandonment, which was set to be filmed in Sydney, for ‘unforeseen personal reasons’ last year.

Days later, Natalie was spotted out and about in Los Angeles.
