PICTURED: The Bachelor 2018 mansion is revealed

Fans were offered a glimpse of this year’s Bachelor contestants on Wednesday, just hours before Nick Cummins was officially confirmed as the leading man.

And as the women prepare to move from a ‘safe house’ hotel in Sydney to the Bachelor mansion this week, aerial photographs of the property have now surfaced. 

Photos reveal the mansion is different to last year’s season starring Matty J, which was filmed at a $1.7 million house in Sydney’s Dural.

The property boasts an outdoor swimming pool, as compared to the house used for Matty’s season which only had an indoor pool.

The mansion includes lush, well manicured gardens complete with stone features.

The white gravel driveway, which is now occupied by the crew’s vans and a filming crane, leads towards a lavish front entrance.

There appears to be two main sections of the property, with one significantly larger than the other, which are connected by an outdoor passageway.

There is also a small pavilion covered with greenery next to the pool, which could be an ideal spot for ‘private chats’ away from the other women.

A stage-type set up is visible in the gardens, but it is unclear if this was already part of the property or recently built by The Bachelor producers.
