Prior to the move north, Wenham, his wife Kate Agnew and their two children had long been 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 sports a classic ‘Queenslander’ style, as well as lush gardens and plenty of outdoor space for entertaining.

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