If there’s anything we’ve learned from the past few years, it’s how to balance connection and seclusion.

This property at 14 Lancewood Drive, Dural in the heart of Sydney’s Hills District offers the best of both worlds. Surrounded by lush bushland, the 2.02ha site includes a gracious four-bedroom home, a classic rectangular pool with purpose-built pool house, as well as two separate outbuildings and lock-up double garage, all set in beautifully maintained gardens.

Indeed, there’s not much reason to leave home, with easy access to a spacious north-facing open plan living area, as well as a generous separate drawing room with bay window. There’s something of the homestead feel about this property, with the ground floor bedrooms all opening onto the wraparound verandas offering ample outdoor living space, as well as providing thermal comfort to the interior spaces. A separate study with French doors onto the veranda will appeal to those who have adopted the hybrid working model.

On the upper floor, it’s the ultimate parents’ retreat with a large corner bedroom leading onto a full ensuite and spacious walk-in robe. The perfect hideaway, the bedrooms also leads onto a separate library which, in turn, leads onto a media room.

Ideal for quiet nights in front of the stone fireplace or for hosting a crowd of family and friends, this property is the getaway you can enjoy without leaving the city.

Judge Blocks Effort to Auction Graceland

Family of Elvis Presley was fighting the attempted sale, alleging fraud

A Tennessee judge on Wednesday blocked an allegedly fraudulent attempt to auction off Graceland, the former Memphis home of music legend Elvis Presley and a major tourist destination in the state.

Elvis’s granddaughter, actress Riley Keough , says a company that had planned a Thursday sale was fake and trying to defraud the trust that owns Graceland.

Judge JoeDae Jenkins in Chancery Court in Shelby County, Tenn., granted the injunction to stop the auction, according to a court clerk. The court had granted Keough a temporary restraining order on the sale last week.

The auction was initiated by an entity called Naussany Investments & Private Lending. It had filed a public notice for a foreclosure sale in Tennessee, alleging Lisa Marie Presley , Elvis’s only child, defaulted on a $3.8 million loan it made to her. The group said it now owns Graceland because Presley defaulted on the loan.

Presley, Keough’s mother, controlled the Graceland trust until her death in January 2023 . Keough then took over as trustee.

Lawyers for Keough said Naussany’s loan documents are forgeries, and the firm “appears to be a false entity created for the purpose of defrauding” the trust that owns Graceland, Presley’s heirs or any purchaser of Graceland.

Elvis Presley Enterprises, which manages Graceland, has also said Naussany’s claims were fraudulent. “There will be no foreclosure,” said Elvis Presley Enterprises spokeswoman Alicia Dean . “Graceland will continue to operate as it has for the past 42 years.”

Keough’s lawyer declined to comment.

Naussany Investments and Kurt Naussany, named in the complaint as acting on behalf of the entity, couldn’t be reached for comment. A phone number listed in the complaint didn’t work, and emails sent to associated addresses weren’t answered. The Wall Street Journal couldn’t separately find contact information for a Kurt Naussany. A lawyer for the entity couldn’t be identified.

The Graceland complex in Memphis, which includes an exhibition center and a 450-room hotel, attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors annually.

Elvis bought the property in 1957, when he was 22 and an ascendant star. He died in 1977 at the age of 42 and is buried on the Graceland property. Graceland opened to the public in 1982.

Lisa Marie Presley’s mother, Priscilla Presley , reached a settlement in 2023 with Keough over who would control the trust. The settlement came after Priscilla Presley challenged a 2016 amendment to the trust filed by Lisa Marie Presley that removed her mother as trustee.
