Ash Barty is trading up to a multi-million dollar ‘dream home’.

 The 25-year-old Queenslander has been quietly building a property portfolio over her short career, with the latest being a $882,000 plot of land in Ipswich, west of Brisbane, last year.

She and her golfer fiancé Garry Kissick are building a lavish mansion on the land in the exclusive community of Brookwater, with Daily Mail Australia being told she is living in a rental next door. 

The new home will be her third, owning properties in neighbouring Springfield Lakes and Augustine Heights.

In a video released by Brookwater Residential, Barty shared how she was working with architects to prioritise outside space.

Barty grew up in the region and said in the video she ‘couldn’t imagine living anywhere else when not travelling the world’.

‘You can hear the birds in the morning. You can see the sun rise. It’s just all those little things that make a home a home,’ she said.
