Neighbours TV stars and their plush properties

If there ever was a reason why you need good neighbours - it's this.

Neighbours alumni Margot Robbie and Russell Crowe have amassed property portfolios almost as impressive as their acting CVs.

Robbie, who starred as Donna Freedman on the long running soap from 2008 to 2011, has wisely invested her big Hollywood pay days into a diverse set of homes in both Australia and the US worth upwards of $15 million.

The 30-year-old Wolf of Wall Street actor owns three blue ribbon Los Angeles homes including a gated five-bedroom home in the sought-after neighbourhood of Hancock Park bought in 2017 and worth more than $4 million.

She also owns a property in the oft-romanticised Venice Beach, purchased last year for around $7.2 million featuring around-the-clock security and three separate dwellings.

Her third LA purchase is a cottage in the Hollywood Hills worth around $1.5 million.

Queensland-born Robbie also bought two adjoining Gold Coast homes last year for her mother and sister for $2.5 million.

Oscar winner Crowe, who played Ramsey Street's Kenny Larkin in 1987, alongside the likes of Jason Donovan, Kylie Minogue and Guy Pearce, boasts Australian property holdings worth around $40 million. A large slice of that is his sprawling Nana Glen estate in northern NSW, which sits on around 400 hectares and has previously seen him nominated as one of the state's biggest private landowners.

The jewel in Crowe's property crown is the stunning 1000 sqm Woolloomooloo Wharf penthouse he bought for $14.35 million in 2003, a Sydney apartment record at the time. It consists of four apartments, has a 35m marina berth and seven car spots. He has previously turned down offers of $25 million for the exclusive abode.

Fellow ex-Neighbours star Liam Hemsworth has also begun to leave his mark on the property world of northern NSW. Hemsworth played the role of Josh Taylor on Neighbours in 2007 and 2008. Late last year he settled on the $4.25 million Cactus Cottage in the Byron Bay area, not far from where his brother Chris lives in a brand new $20 million mansion.

A company linked to the brothers bought a Suffolk Park address for $4.3 million in 2018. It is a home believed to purchased for their parents Craig and Leonie to live in.

A career start in Neighbours has also allowed Jason Donovan to own an enviable slice of property across the world. Charlene Robinson's former beau Scott Robinson has a $10 million mansion in the London's trendy west end suburb of Notting Hill, where he was photographed last year helping to extinguish an late night fire at his neighbours house in his underpants. Donovan sold his three-bedroom Bondi Beach pad with ocean views for $2.3 million in November last year. Donovan had hosted Minogue, Michael Hutchence and Johnny Depp among a swath of celebrities in the 1990s. Donovan sold that property to fund a purchase on the Spanish Holiday Isle of Mallorca.

Guy Pearce is another former Neighbours actor who has properties holdings in several countries. The Memento actor, who was formerly known as Mike Young in Neighbours, owns a "run-down schoolhouse" outside of Ballarat, a four floor condo in West Hollywood and a house in the heart of Amsterdam where he spends most of his time.
