Ellen DeGeneres News: Couple Willing to Take a Tour of Nirvana
According to Greg O’Shea, real estate agent, the celebrity couple requested an inspection of the Mornington Peninsula estate. O’Shea said he contacted the couple’s management team regarding an estate named Nirvana. He made the move after coming across an article about the couple’s plans to move to Australia.
“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,” the agent told Domain. “’I’ve been told around February or March.”
However, it came as a surprise to him when he learned that the couple was already aware of the listing. He said that although he did not know how they knew about it, he thinks that they were perhaps researching that particular area.
According to Mail Online, the mansion sprawls over an area of 20 hectare and has 5 bedrooms. It overlooks a picturesque view and also features three bathrooms, three garages, two powder rooms and one theater room.
Nirvana, Home to Most Prominent Persons
O’Shea noted that only a prominent person will be able to afford such a property. He added that the owner of the property should be someone in the same league with a celebrity, footballer, or a banker.
But, according to the agent’s estimates, the property will be sold off quickly, despite the high price tag.
“The way I look at it is, I see it as an oasis, he said. “As soon as I show people the property, I can see a deal getting done sooner than later because something like this doesn’t really come up that often.” However, it is too early to tell whether DeGeneres and Rossi would permanently move to Australia yet.
The couple is currently living in Los Angeles with three dogs and three cats. DeGeneres’ wife Rossi hails from Australia. According to Ellen DeGeneres news, he reportedly fell in love with Australia following a trip with Rossi in 2013.
