Chris Hemsworth may spend a lot of time travelling the world for roles in big-budget movies like Thor and Extraction, but there's no place like home for the Australian actor. The 36-year-old lives with his wife Elsa Pataky and their three children on a sprawling 4.2-hectare estate with panoramic sea views, a huge infinity pool and of course, a home gym.
The couple bought their home in 2014 and began renovation work at the end of 2016, tearing down the original property and building a new eight-bedroom house in its place complete with a games room, sun deck, and spa. One of Chris' Instagram posts offers a look at their spacious open-plan kitchen and living room, which has double-height ceilings with skylights looking out at their estate.

The kitchen is modern and light, with wooden cabinets and white worktops and tiles on the walls. A window behind the sink looks out to the couple's huge garden and pool.
How comfy does this huge sofa look for Chris' twin sons to lie down and watch a movie? The cream sofa has been topped with lots of fluffy cushions, while the wooden floor is almost entirely covered with the twins' toys.
Chris enlisted one of his favourite artists to paint a huge mural along one wall in his house, and shared a look at the finished result on Instagram – as well as revealing the meaning behind the design, which focuses on representational imagery of the ceremonial dancing of the Gumbaynggirr people.
Christmas dinner at the Hemsworth household looks incredible! Chris and Elsa set up a long dining table on the terrace of their home, with views across their infinity pool to the ocean.
The couple has a fire pit in their garden positioned on a patio overlooking the surrounding countryside.
Of course, Chris has a fully-equipped gym in his house, where he can train for his movie roles using an assortment of free weights and cardio equipment.
Chris took his workout outdoors for one Instagram video, where he stands on a lawn by the swimming pool, which is lined with sun loungers.
