Australia’s all-pink ‘Barbie’ mansion, built by an American couple, hits the market for $2.5 million
- Pink Mansion is for sale for $2.5 million
- Four bedroom house is located south of Perth
- It has been compared to Barbie’s house
A pastel pink mansion that has been likened to a Barbie dollhouse with its pillars and “sweeping stairs” is up for grabs for a whopping $2.5 million.
The four-bedroom house at 8 Eunamara Retreat in Halls Head, Mandurah, 70 km south of Perth, has lavish interiors and water features.
The home is described as the ‘epitom of opulence’ with water views and a private dock – ‘the perfect place to park your boat’.
It could be good timing for owners, as the upcoming Barbie movie starring Margot Robbie has sparked a global resurgence in interest in the fashion doll.
The Mandurah house was built 20 years ago by a Texas couple who decorated it with lots of marble and granite, reports the Western Australian.

The couple even painted the house a bright pink when the color started to fade.
But current owners Brian and Pauline Packer have toned it down to a dusty pink color.
“People either love it or hate it,” The Agency solicitor Renee Hardman told the paper.
She added that the Mediterranean-themed design is more “South Florida style” than California’s Malibu, where the iconic toy supposedly comes from.
It has marble, granite, and jarrah features throughout the home, while each queen-size bedroom has its own bathroom.
The home also features water features, hardwood floors, two fireplaces, bronze statues, and teardrop chandeliers.
The living areas have high ceilings with carved pillars and reverse cycle air conditioning

The two living areas have high ceilings with carved pillars and reverse cycle air conditioning, while the entrance has a spiral staircase.
The property also has a private gazebo, landscaped gardens and an outdoor powder room with a shower located near the heated pool.
“For those who enjoy water sports, the large jetty provides the perfect place to park your boat,” the property listing reads.
If it gets a buyer willing to pay the $2.5 million going price, it will become the most expensive sale in Halls Head for 2023.
