It's not enough to just have a beach weekender anymore.

Tech billionaire Michael Cannon-Brookes and wife Annie have now added a rural retreat.

Their weekender Joadja Creek Farm, cost the Atlassian co-founder $3.3 million.

It is 390 hectare hobby farm in the small heritage registered town of Joadja, some 140 kilometres from Sydney in the Southern Highlands. 

The secluded farm is surrounded by native bushland, with horse riding trails and wildlife aplenty.

The four bedroom home was architecturally designed in 1996 by the Haege family with wrap-around verandahs and sits amid an orchard.

Its on Joadja Creek with water holes, three dams and a bore.

Brookes has been Centennial Park based since 2015 when he secured Braelin, the $12 million Lang Road trophy home.

He owns a $8.7 million Palm Beach holiday home.

The couple own a Centennial Park home bought from luxury car dealer Ian Pagent and wife Marianne for $12 million.

The Californian bungalow style home built in 1918 for Sir Allen Taylor, a former lord mayor of Sydney is set for a makeover given the family's need for more bedrooms.

They have just spent $7.05 million on the Double Bay trophy home SeaDragon, the 1936 Professor Leslie Wilkinson designed Mediterranean style villa while they await the renovations.

It was sold by QC Francis Douglas through Sally Hampshire at Laing+Simmons inconjunction with Sothebys International.
