Nicole Kidman wants to live closer to Cate Blanchett, femalefirst.co.uk reports. The Moulin Rouge! star is so keen to relocate she has put two of her Australian properties on the market. Her Sydney villa has been valued at $19 million US, while her beachfront retreat on the New South Wales coast is on the market for $3.8 million.
Kidman — who is expecting her first child with husband Keith Urban in July — wants to buy a house with a larger garden, and is rumoured to be looking at properties that are closer to her family and friend Blanchett.
Kidman lived in the Sydney villa with her ex-husband Tom Cruise, and was awarded the property in their divorce settlement. The 40-year-old actress bought the beachfront retreat in 2004, but has only visited it a handful of times according to local residents. Kidman and her husband are also planning to spend more time in the U.S. at their Nashville property so Urban can concentrate on his music career.
