HAVING wrapped filming for the next season of Foxtel hit A Place to Call Home, actor Marta Dusseldorp and her husband Ben Winspear have decided it’s time to depart their Paddington terrace.
It may only be a short-term move — their elegant Paddington home is advertised as being available for a 12-month plus lease and is not for sale.
The rental listing has reignited suggestions that Hollywood might be on the horizon for the couple.
Dusseldorp briefly headed to the US some two decades ago, but couldn’t afford to pursue the challenge.
She has since become an award-winning stage and television actor. Now at the top of her game, Dusseldorf signalled recently she could be off to America.
The traditional terrace house is described as both contemporary and true to its 19th century traditions.
It features stunning high ceilings, ornate cornices, beautiful woodwork, and kauri floors, costing the couple $2.125 million in 2013.
They’re now asking $1700 a week for the four-bedroom home which comes with two renovated bathrooms.
Downstairs living, dining and kitchen areas open to a large courtyard garden through period French doors.
Phillips Pantzer Donnelley agents William Hesketh and Katrina Borg are leasing the home.
Before any rumoured Hollywood move, the couple will head to Brisbane, where they both will appear in Joanna Murray-Smith’s stage adaptation of Scenes from a Marriage for the Queensland Theatre Company.
The adaptation of theIngmar Bergmanclassic sees the real-life power couple play the warring spouses.
It kicks off in November.
Dusseldorp’s most notable performance is the lead role in the Foxtel Showcase series A Place to Call Home.
She plays nurse Sarah Adams, who has returned to Australia after 20 years abroad to start a new life.
She ends up clashing with wealthy matriarch Elizabeth Bligh, played byNoni Hazlehurst.
Season five will air on Foxtel Showcase from October 8.
