Chris Hemsworth selling Malibu mansion after move to Byron

CHRIS Hemsworth has listed his Malibu mansion for $6.5 million.

The 'Thor' actor and his wife Elsa Pataky are selling their Los Angeles home after recently relocating to Chris' native Australia with their three children India, three, and twins Tristan and Sasha, 23 months.

Chris, 32, and Elsa, 39, bought the home, in the exclusive Point Dume area, off 'Crocodile Dundee' star Paul Hogan.

Listing agent Ryan Davis of the John Aaroe Group's Aaroe Estates told the website Zillow: "I know Chris and his brothers very well - I helped Liam find his house in Malibu - and they're wonderful to work with, salt of the earth."

The property, spread over 6,800 square feet, has five bedrooms, six bathrooms, a gym, guest house and three-car garage.

Chris and Elsa are now based in Byron Bay, New South Wales and he recently admitted he never felt at "home" in Los Angeles.

He explained: "LA, I loved it, it was great being there with the opportunities with work, [but] it didn't feel like home.

"Instantly, when I get off the plane, I'm back."

And the 32-year-old star was particularly keen for his kids to live on the coast, just like he did as a youngster.

He added: "Which is I think is essential to what we want to give [the children]."
