Ellen DeGeneres and her wife Portia de Rossi have been reportedly planning to move to Australia.
Recently the couple have expressed interest in a certain $5.8 million residence in Victoria that might just become their Australian home to move in later on in life.
According to real estate agent Greg O’Shea, Ellen and Portia have requested a private tour of Nirvana, a fittingly named Mornington Peninsula estate.
O’Shea mentioned that he was the one who reached out to Ellen’s team after he read an article in which the comedian and TV host expressed her desire to have an Australian propriety.
“Their manager got back to me saying they are interested in the property, and that when they come to Australia, they want a private tour of it.”
“I’ve been told around February or March.”
However, as it turns out, the couple knew about the house and already had their eyes on it.
“I don’t know how. Maybe they are looking in that particular area.”
The mansion has five bedrooms and is over 20 hectares. Furthermore, it has three bathrooms, three garages and even a theater room.
According to O’Shea the “really impressive piece of real estate” will we sold fast despite the huge price range.
For now however, the commitment of buying a home in Australia is unnecessary considering Ellen has her TV show to host in Los Angeles.
Portia is busy filming for Arrested Development as well. Reportedly, the couple “fell in love” with Australia during a trip there in 2013.
According to an insider, “they both really want to buy a place there… Ellen knows how much Portia misses Australia.”
Even Ellen herself hinted about the move upon returning from the trip, telling her audience: “I shouldn’t put it out there but I can see us living here one day.”
“I’m moving here, it’s so beautiful.”
Despite some recent rumors that the couple are having problems, it looks like they are still happy enough to stay together.
Ellen and Portia had an intimate marriage ceremony in 2008.
At the time Ellen revealed she was happier than ever, saying: “What can I say? I’m the luckiest girl in the world. She’s officially off the market. No one else gets her. And now she’ll cook and clean for me.”
