Before the move north, Wenham, his wife Kate Agnew and their two children were long-time residents of Sydney’s eastern suburbs.

The Australian actor, who rose to fame playing Diver Dan in the ABC drama SeaChange, sold his four-bedroom apartment in Potts Point for $5.755 million in February.

His new home in Brisbane boasts a classic ‘Queenslander’ style, as well as lush gardens and plenty of space outdoors for entertaining.

The ornate high ceilings and open-plan design give the interiors a light and airy feel.
