Chris Hemsworth and wife Elsa Pataky denied rumours that they’re selling their $30 million home in Byron Bay earlier this month.
Now new claims have emerged that the A-list pair have forked out a mammoth $50million to snag the mansion on Burraneer Bay in Sydney’s Sutherland Shire.
According to Sarah McGilvary of NOVAFM’s Fitzy and Wippa show, the Thor star and his wife are in the process of pinning down the property, which includes seven bedrooms and 23 bathrooms.

‘Chris Hemsworth, this is awesome… he’s been house hunting and I’ve had a tip-off from someone,’ Sarah told the show on Friday.
‘I have it on good authority that he’s been there, two to three times,’ she added.
The home mentioned is listed on Domain and boasts scenic views as well as up to 20 car spots.

It’s also a recreational delight as the home also features a built-in bowling alley, cinema and a wine cellar.
Should Chris and Elsa have their Hollywood friends over, they’ve got plenty of room to spare as the property includes two guest houses.
The Sutherland Shire home also has a wine-tasting room, a gymnasium, and a music room, and is a short 40 minutes away from Sydney’s CBD.

Earlier this month it was revealed that the high-profile couple were not selling their $30 million home in Byron Bay, despite rumours claiming they planned to offload the property.
According to a report in Confidential, a Byron Bay prestige realtor confirmed there was ‘no mention’ of the property coming on the books for sale.
He also said the mega mansion was not being ‘quietly shopped’ to potential buyers.

‘I see every home that is either on the market or coming on the books and there has been no mention of Chris’s home yet,’ the unnamed agent was quoted as saying.
The report included a friend who said widespread reports of the move were also ‘surprising’ for him, given the specifications of the Hemsworth mansion.
‘That home was built to his family’s unique specifications so it would be surprising for him to sell up now,’ the friend was quoted as saying.

The rumours emerged following reports the A-listers recently ‘inspected a large landholding at nearby Lennox Head’, according to The Courier Mail.
That property ended up being sold to some Sydneysiders, who purchased it for about $15million to use as a holiday home.
Chris and Elsa completed their mega-mansion earlier this year, and the monolithic home has skyrocketed in price since the family moved in.
Originally estimated at $20million, property experts said in January the LA-style compound, located in Broken Head near Byron Bay, is now worth $30million.

Lloyd Edge, founder and director of Aus Property Professionals and author of best-selling book Positively Geared, said the market value had gone-up significantly since the original dwelling was knocked down and rebuilt.
He told Daily Mail Australia: ‘I estimate that in the current market the property could sell for up to $30million.’
‘Hemsworth bought the property for $9million but spent around $18million building the mansion.’
Chris and his family began construction on the mansion, which was previously an eight-bedroom resort-style home known as Kooeloah, in late 2017.
Angry neighbours were quick to say the rebuild reminded them of a suburban shopping centre, a refurbished RSL club or a regional airport terminal.

The property, about 12 kilometres out of Byron Bay, is on Broken Head Road and overlooks Seven Mile Beach.
A development application approved by Byron Shire Council estimated the cost of construction to be $18million.
Most of that money has gone back into the Northern Rivers community. The home was built by Jason Stehn whose company Stehnbuild is based in nearby Bangalow.
Chris and Elsa live at the home with their children, daughter India and twin boys Tristan and Sasha.
