The Swan River, Mosman Park home cinema in Australia's priciest sold residential compound

It's perhaps not the most lavish, but this is the home cinema in Australia's priciest sold compound. Property Observer ranks its as the sixth best home cinema among recent listings. The iron ore heiress, Angela Bennett, had this deluxe cinema in her $57.5 million Mosman Park property in Perth. In 2009, she sold the property to fellow mining magnate, Chris Ellison, who set up Crushing Services International, which built and operated ore-crushing plants for mining companies.

The 7,567 square metre riverside mansion has three buildings, a private jetty, a wine cellar, luxurious wood-panelling throughout, a gym, an indoor swimming pool and a tennis court.

Hollywood stars pictured on the walls here include Marilyn Monroe, Peter O’Toole, James Dean, Vivien Leigh and Clarke Gable, suggesting Bennett's tastes were more Hollywood glamour than current day celebrity.

The tiered leather sofas here all look towards a massive projection screen framed by wood panelled cupboards and golden tinged curtains. Just behind the front sofa, hidden from view is a table to rest meals cooked in the well-appointed kitchen or just a few Manhattan cocktails.
