Rising Australian tennis star Ashleigh Barty may have lost her quarterfinal at the Australian Open, but the $460,000 in prizemoney she is due to collect is sure to soften the blow.

The 22-year-old from Ipswich in Queensland put up a gutsy effort against Czech Republic’s Petra Kvitova but went down swinging in the loss.

Should Barty decide to splash some cash on new digs, she will have a plethora of options available to her, wherever it may be.

If she wishes to remain in her home town, prices are certainly more favourable, with an average house costing $360,000, according to CoreLogic data.

If career earnings are anything to go by, Barty will have plenty of options around Australia, racking up an impressive $7.86 million in prizemoney since hitting the tour.

Here is a list of potential properties she could snap up.
