Inside the palatial Gold Coast home where George and Amal Clooney are rumoured to be staying

George and Amal Clooney are rumoured to have secured a palatial mansion on the outskirts of the Gold Coast for when they visit Australia in the coming weeks.

The Hollywood star, 60, is bringing his family Down Under while he films the romantic comedy Ticket to Paradise alongside Julia Roberts.

George and his wife of seven years, 43, are believed to be renting a 49-hectare estate in Tallebudgera Valley called Bellagio La Villa.

The property was put on the market by its Chinese billionaire owner in January.

Global real estate tycoon Riyu Li listed the estate for $50million after his plans to turn it into a resort were rejected by Gold Coast City Council.

Bellagio La Villa is considered the most expensive house in the Gold Coast region.

‘I could not believe such a palatial yet sophisticated home existed on the Gold Coast,’ real estate agent Amir Mian of Amir Prestige told the Gold Coast Bulletin in January.

‘It looked like the sort of beautiful building that you see as the centrepiece of lush green estates in Europe and the UK.’

Property developer Li purchased the stunning 10-bedroom, 12-bathroom property for $7.2million in 2014.

Other filming locations include the Gold Coast and Brisbane, and the production is expected to generate $47million for the Australian economy and create more than 270 jobs.

George will relocate to Australia for the two-month project along with human rights lawyer Amal and the couple’s five-year-old twins, Alexander and Ella.

According to The Sydney Morning Herald, George and Julia will arrive in Australia towards the end of this month.
