Tina Arena is reportedly moving back to France, after listing her stunning Melbourne mansion for sale.
The Aussie songstress, who relocated to Australia in 2012 after two decades living in France and London, has put the five-bedroom Toorak home on the market with a price guide of $7 million, according to realestate.com.au.

Victorian real estate company RT Edgar’s director Jeremy Fox told the website the singer was “planning to go back to France” with her partner, French artist Vincent Mancini, and her teenage son Gabriel Mancini, after the sale.
The move has allowed fans to get a glimpse inside the charming 1930s home, which was last bought in April 2017 for $5.733 million and was originally designed by Australian architect to the stars Marcus Martin as his own private residence.
It has since been renovated by renowned architect Wayne Gillespie.
It features an enviable outdoor entertainment terrace with a large pool and leafy garden, which is framed by large doors and windows from the open space living areas.
The north-facing home has five bedrooms, four bathrooms, multiple living areas, study and gourmet kitchen.
The 53-year-old Sorrento Moon singer relocated from Australia to Paris in the late 1990s where she enjoyed great success, before meeting her long-term partner Mancini.
She said in 2012 upon coming back home that “it was time”.
“I’ve been away 20-odd years, worked internationally and done some great things, (but) I just felt it was time to come home,” she told News Corp Australia. “I want to be with my family and have my son experience what it’s like growing up in Australia. It’s really important for me.”
Arena, who shot to fame on Young Talent Time more than 40 years ago, is yet to address her move back to France.
She recently announced an eight-date tour of Australia for May next year, stopping in Sydney, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Wollongong and Canberra.
“2020 has been such a challenging year for us all in so many ways with the music, arts and entertainment sectors suffering. It’s really important for us all to have something to look forward to and return to doing the things we cherish the most as much as possible,” Arena said in a statement.
