Thor star Chris Hemsworth is reportedly about to demolish his lavish Broken Head home and rebuild at a cost of some $8 million.
Hemsworth has submitted a development application on the 4.2-hectare Seven Mile Beach Road property he shares with his wife, Elsa Pataky, and three children.
News Limited newspapers have reported that the pair plan to completely demolish the home they bought for $7 million in 2014, which itself was built as recently as 2003.
Under the plan, the house and outbuildings will all go, and a new swimming pool will be added.
Is understood that a major Sydney architectural firm has been engaged to redevelop the property.
The DA is expected to go on exhibition at Byron Shire Council sometime in the next few weeks.
