The original plan for the six-bedroom residence in the riverside suburb of Applecross included a third floor that would have served as a Western Australian base for The Dark Knight star.

Speak with The Daily TelegraphKim Ledger said:[Heath] was very interested in the design.’

“We’ve talked a lot about this house. We thought it would be a great place for him to stay while he was in town.”

Unfortunately, the property was still under construction at the time of the late actor’s death in 2008 and was later completed without the extra floor.

Heath was tragically found dead in a New York City apartment on January 22, 2008, after accidentally taking an overdose after months of physical and mental exhaustion.

Reportedly being a drug user for many years, things came to a head when he juggled too many movies – including his last role The Dark Knight – with very little sleep and he started relying on various cocktails of recipes to shut down his mind.

‘I couldn’t stop thinking. My body was exhausted, and my mind was still busy,” he told the… New York Times in an interview in November — just two months before he died at age 28.

He was eventually found dead from a deadly combination of six drugs in his system: two types of narcotics, two types of anxiety medications, and two types of sleep medications.
