LOS ANGELES (GN): Cate Blanchetthas sold her holiday home following a bidding war.

The 50-year-old actress and her husband Andrew Upton put their Berowa Creek property - which is only accessible by water and is situated on the edge of the Berowra Valley National Park in New South Wales - on the market three weeks ago and it’s already been snapped up.

According to Domain, even bushfire smoke infiltrating the nearby waterways didn’t deter potential buyers and it ultimately sold for a figure at the top of their expected AUS$1.6 million to AUS$1.75 million price range following ‘’fierce competition’’ between three parties.

The ground floor level of the property features a fully-contained one-bedroom apartment, while above that are three large bedrooms, a study, and living and dining areas with river views, including a timber and stainless steel kitchen.

There are plenty of facilities for relaxation too, with a spa, sauna, terraced gardens and pontoon.

And at the rear of the property, there is a detached bunkhouse.

The three-storey abode was bought for AUS$1.495 million by the couple in 2014 and was used as a ‘’hideaway’’ by the ‘Elizabeth’ star and her husband - who have Dashiell, 17, Roman, 15, Ignatius, 11, and Edith, five, together - when they lived in Sydney.

However, they sold their Australian estate in 2017 and now live in a mansion in East Sussex, South East England.
