Striking new satellite images show how Jennifer Hawkins and her husband Jake Wall spent years building their dream family home on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, before welcoming their first child, daughter Frankie Violet Hawkins Wall, last Tuesday.
After purchasing two adjacent waterfront lots in Newport for $4 million in 2014, the couple embarked on a gruelling $2 million project, transforming a vast dusty block of land into a multi-million dollar mansion.
Back in 2014, the blocks were flat and empty, with just a small shack situated in the centre of the barren and bleak site.

Less than one year later the shack was gone, as Wall’s property development business, J Group Projects, excavated the terrain, laid the foundations and began building the mega mansion.
By March 2016, the four-level, five bedroom home had taken shape, with features such as the couple’s indoor elevator and infinity pool installed.
