Aerial photo shows Guy and Jules Sebastian’s controversial $3.1million mansion finally complete

New aerial images show the final product of Guy and Jules Sebastian’s ultra-modern $3.1million Maroubra mansion after years of renovation.  

The pair and their children, Hudson James, eight, and Archer Jones, six, have been quarantining in style thanks to the property’s adjoined swimming pool, tennis court and luxurious fire-pit area. 

However, the renovation of the abode hasn’t come without its critics, as neighbours have long complained about the development, with many labelling it a ‘fortress’ due to its monolithic facade and others even threatening to move away from the area.

With plenty to occupy himself with during the COVID-19 lockdown, Guy’s tennis court serves as the perfect place to have fun with his kids before enjoying a dip in the pool.

While the kids are asleep, there is more than enough space for Guy and Jules to relax with a glass in hand out by the firepit. 

Guy purchased the multi million home in 2013, and then spent two-and-a-half years renovating it. He finally moved in with his family in June 2019.

However, the abode’s renovation has raised eyebrows with locals, with many neighbours threatening to move because of its vast size.

In December, Guy defended the renovation, telling KIIS FM: ‘It’s a long build, but it’s a pretty special house. It’s not normal. It’s not a cookie-cutter house. It’s cool.’

The property is just as lavish inside with a nine-metre high white steel staircase serving as the focal point of the main foyer entrance.
