They already have properties in Sydney’s Bondi, and Manhattan in New York, but even Hollywood megastars need a holiday home.

And Hugh Jackman, 50, and his wife Deborra-lee Furness, 63, have given a sneak peek at their new East Hamptons holiday house, purchased ‘for the summer months’ in the US.

According to Vogue Living, the home – designed by Deborra-lee in conjunction with Stelle Lomont Rouhani architects – is still in its design phase after four years.

‘We dance as a family in this space’: An inside look at Hugh Jackman and Deborra-lee Furness’ new Hamptons holiday home (pictured). Deborra-lee told Vogue Living: ‘I like the way we dance as a family in this space, as opposed to our New York home, which is three floors and you can just not see each other’

As the main summer home on the property won’t be ready until November 2019, the Jackman family have been living in the 435sqm wood cabin guesthouse on the site.

The cabin, painted black on the outside and sporting white bleached floorboards inside, has one bedroom, and bunk beds in the main living area for the couple’s kids Oscar, 18, and Ava, 13.

Deborra-lee told Vogue Living: ‘I like the way we dance as a family in this space, as opposed to our New York home, which is three floors and you can just not see each other.’

She added: ‘With the small space, I notice Oscar will be on the top bunk bed, Hugh and I will be watching TV, and Ava will be over at the dining table, so we are all in together.’

The guesthouse dining area boasts a fireplace in waterproof tadelakt finish with steel log storage insert, and a custom glass wall looking over the external pool area.

The pavilion sits next to a glistening infinity pool and adjoining chaise on the concrete forecourt.

In regards to the black and white colour palette, Deborra-lee said she was inspired by yin and yang pairs of opposites. 'I love opposites - I'm very into black and white ... the Jungian, the yin and the yang,' she said. Pictured with husband Hugh

A gazebo, located closer to the edge of the coastline, is draped in white linen.

In regards to the black and white colour palette, Deborra-lee said she was inspired by yin and yang pairs of opposites.

‘I love opposites – I’m very into black and white. All the interiors are neutral tones and I think the architects were pushing me towards doing the main house black, but it will be white – the Jungian, the yin and the yang,’ she said.

The rest of the site is being built on two adjoining pieces of land sprawled across half a hectare, and overlooking a dramatic bluff.

One major reason for the delay in the construction is the fact that Deborra-lee ‘keeps changing her mind’ on the design, as she picks up new ideas on her jaunts overseas.
