Jennifer Hawkins and Jake Wall are building a house. And it's lovely.


There’s no place like home, especially when home is a multi-million dollar, waterfront mansion in Newport.

Australian supermodel Jennifer Hawkins and her husband Jake Wall are in the process of building their dream home. According to the Business Insider, the couple purchased two adjoining water-front blocks in Sydney’s affluent Newport in 2014, and documents from Pittwater Council indicate the build is costing them an additional $2 million.

Luckily for us, the glamorous couple (and their construction crew) are documenting the project on social media.

On The Morning Show this week, Hawkins said she’s enjoying being a part of the build.

“I always walk through the building site in a bikini and heels,” she said.

Unsurprisingly, it is the design elements that are the most fun for the super stylish Hawkins. “It’s kinda fun, she said. “I do the interiors more so and he builds the place – we just enjoy it!”

“It’s kind of a side project for me,” Hawkins told The Morning Show, “but Jake’s main gig – so it kind of works well.” While the majority of images can be found on J Group Projects & Developments Instagram, Jake Wall’s frequent updates show it’s a project close to his heart.

According to J Group’s Instagram, the house should be complete by late 2016.

Wouldn’t mind sipping a spritz with that view for Christmas!

For us mere mortals, our dream houses are not always within our reach. Check out some of cinema’s most aspirational (and ridiculous) apartments:
