The trendy looking home of course comes complete with a recording studio that soundproofed and has acoustic insulation.

There was even his imprimatur in its marketing "as the ultimate professional musicians home."

Rudd had paid $722,500 for the land in 2012 before commissioning Chris Walker Constructions to build the home. 

Sitting on the banks of Marshall's Creek, the 220 sqm home was built with a mix of native timbers, stone and handcrafted features prominent throughout.

Rudd shared the home with new wife, holistic wellness trainer Ashley Freeman. They wed in late 2016 in a Byron Bay Australian Aboriginal Ceremony.

The home was designed to create a connection with nature.
