They’re already planning their dream wedding, and now Bindi Irwin and Chandler Powell are looking for their dream home together.

Sources tell Woman’s Day the couple have been actively househunting in recent weeks, and they’re close to purchasing a lavish Sunshine Coast home.

“They want their marital home to be perfect and they’re taking their time to find the ideal spot,” explains an exclusive insider.

“It’s the home where they’ll raise their family, so it’s incredibly important to them they find somewhere that feels special to both of them. Ideally, they want this to be their forever home and don’t want to move around if they can help it.”

Bindi – who’s already worth around $5 million, thanks to her growing international star power – is also believed to have inherited a large chunk of her late dad Steve’s estate when she recently turned 21.

“She’s extremely level-headed about money and will spend her inheritance wisely, you can count on that,” says our insider.

“What’s so great about Chandler is that he never meddles, and he fully respects Bindi’s financial independence. But she can’t think of any better way to spend it than investing in her and her love’s dream home, where they can continue the family legacy.”

Sources say Bindi and Chandler, 22, have fallen in love with a $1.25 million house in the foothills of Mount Mellum.
