Beachfront villa outside Sydney with George Michael links hits the market for A$15million

A beachfront villa in Palm Beach, a northern suburb of Sydney, which was associated with the late British singer and songwriter George Michael, has come on the market for 15 million Australian dollars (10.5 million US dollars). The superstar, behind hits such as ‘Careless Whisper’ and ‘Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go’, is said to have bought or rented the property when he visited Sydney in 2010 ahead of his scheduled 2012 performance, in the part of a tour that was eventually cancelled. Michael died of heart failure in 2016 at the age of 53. The home features five bedrooms, five bathrooms, multiple living areas with travertine stone flooring, a stand-alone ground floor with a media room, and wet bar. It also features an infinity pool and glass and steel pavilions with 180 degree ocean views. real
